You might have heard about Athene, the greek warrior godess, who wears a feather-helmet and has been born out of the head of godfather zeus himself? but have you heard about Metis, Athenes mother? did you know that she was devoured by that same zeus when she was pregnant because he was jealous of her power to give birth and to 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.
