And I guess here at the southern tip of New Jersey that we are going to have some serious lessons learned in the next couple of days.
But, Mother Nature wins out! So, just a quick post today since I am still making sure everything is secure. Obviously, in this area the last thing on anyone's mind is shopping unless it is for water, batteries, supplies.
Images of women representing mother earth, and mother nature, are timeless. In prehistoric times, goddesses were worshipped for their association with fertility, fecundity, and agricultural bounty. Priestesses held dominion over aspects of Incan, Algonquian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Slavonic, Germanic, Roman, Greek, Indian, and Iroquoian religions in the millennia prior to the inception of patriarchal religions. Women should have held on with those manicured nails!
The word nature comes from the Latin word, natura, meaning birth or character. In English its first recorded use, in the sense of the entirety of the phenomena of the world, was very late in history in 1662; however natura, and the personification of Mother Nature, was widely popular in the Middle Ages and can be traced to Ancient Greece in origin.
