MOTHER GOOSE, MOTHER GODDESS 2
On July 26 and 27 of 2005, I threw on this blog two posts about Mother Goose and Mother Goddess.
To find out, get your hands on a copy of Breaking the Mother Goose Code: How a Fairy Tale Character Fooled the World for 300 Years. It’s coming this fall to an online bookstore near you.
I also threw on pictures of regal, proud and dignified goddesses flying gooseback, and “silly, inconsequential” Mother Gooses, also flying gooseback.
I suggested Mother Goose might be a disguise for getting the Goddess through the long, dark night of the European Middle Ages (when even to mention the word “goddess” was tantamount to getting roasted over a slow Medieval fire).
Back in 2005, some of you thought Mother Goose might be the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess.
So which is it? Is Mother Goose the Crone Goddess? Or a disguise to help theGreat Mother slip through those dark and ugly days unscathed?
Or, could it be both?
