from Women Who Run with the Wolves.

Although I did not call her by that name then, my love for Wild Woman began when I was a little child.  I was an aesthete rather than an athlete, and my only wish was to be an ecstatic wanderer.  Rather than chairs and tables, I preferred the ground, trees and caves, for in those places I felt I could lean against the cheek of God.

The river always called to be visited after dark, the fields needed to be walked in, so they could make their rustle-talk.  Fires need to be built in the forest at night, and stories needed to be told outside the hearing of grown-ups.

Dr  Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  From Women Who Run with the Wolves.
