    I have learned in my short sojourn here on the third pebble that women of substance do not rely on artificial explanations or definitions of how and what they should be or what they are. A strong woman, rare that she is, KNOWS, instinctively, the requirements for maintaining the solidity of the family structure and has no issues with self-identity based on the oxy-moronics of our times, or picking up a rifle should that become a necessity.. Those that prefer to make the voyage as soloists also understand the reality of maintaining the self in times of stress, as well and will attach to a strong mate (sexual preference not withstanding) and make the way forward. I believe I worked this theme in one of my short stories that I recently sent to you, “Magic Lady.”

      “… women of substance do not rely on artificial explanations or definitions of how and what they should be or what they are.” Most assuredly! A thing that most could learn from in this age of, “Gee, I wish I could find a bunch of people with a horse I could hitch my cart to so I could validate the worth of my opinion!”

      By the way, in wake of your comment, I reread “Magic Lady” You and I are certainly of a cloth.

    As an addendum, I don’t think specific ‘identifiable’ spirituality is a requirement for acknowledgement of personal greatness, but rather an acceptance of one’s own magnificence according to one’s own perspective on the cosmic connection that all creatures are aligned with in one way or another. Religiosity is one of the major impediments to understanding enlightenment and living accordingly. More of this at another time, I would venture.

      Everything, including Man, has this woven into its DNA, but religiosity, as you put it, seeks to set Man apart from and above all others. Chosen — ah! There’s something to talk about!

      As I wrote a while back, “It takes no more than one generation of removal in time to distance human understanding from any heretofore common experience, no matter how horrific, and history has shown that people can function through pretty much anything, using it as a motivation for improvement (As Winston Churchill said, “If you are going through hell, keep going.”) Two generations of removal will also remove most of those with direct experience to relate from the late unpleasantness, and so the new reality becomes the expected one. The real one. The only one. The one that’s supposed to be owed to you and yours.”
