You might have heard about Athene, the greek warrior godess, who wears a feather-helmet and has been born out of the leg of godfather zeus himself? but have you heard about Metis, Athenes mother? did you know that she was devoured by that same father when she was pregnant? Did you know zeus was jealous of her power to give birth and  pass on life? 
for me the godess Metis represents a consciousness, we as women (and as human beings in general) had to repress for a long time and must learn to honour again. i publish my writing under Metis' name because it aims at assisting the generation of this forgotten consciousness.
