Like many writers, Starhawk's books were more interesting and challenging than she was in person. She is a very interesting and supportive person. I had really wanted to do some specific work from "Dreaming the Dark," and was disappointed in that aspect.
But, like so many other times in my life, the move to the San Francisco Bay area was to lead me in an entirely different and unexpected path. A friend of mine talks about God as a God of surprises and my life is a testimony to that! That's why I have so few moments of regret.
And while I'm now back in the church, and an out lesbian and preacher at my parish, I still practice much of the differing and divergent spiritual practices that I've studied, and am grateful for them.
I'm a firm believer, that there are no accidents and everything in our life has a purpose.
