>>sister wendy  if you were a real 'sister' you'd search into our ancient
>>sisters' art.  you surely then could not make the statement: anything
>>that matters in life, all truth and beauty, is from god.  before god was
>>invented there were several hundred thousand years of art of the female
>>by the female, the informed. 
>>i tried to view your series on pbs but when you slighted the paleolithic
>>[lithic not an encompassing term] and neglected the neolithic [a
>>terrible misnomer--paleo-clay would at least describe the major medium]
>>i turned you off. 
>>the art of paleo-clay (continuing the unbroken line of female imagery)
>>appears to be the source of all art and makes that which follows a bit
>>dull--and, more profoundly, rootless. perhaps like what happened in my
>>early art education you were not interested or were not ready for the
>>depth of this imagery--most likely it was not explained and was even
>>misrepresented and even worse was suppressed.
>>i challenge you to read the books* of the late archeologist and ucla
>>professor marija gimbutas. perhaps you will find a series in them. 
>>perhaps you'll find yourself.
>>sincerely visualmm 1/17/98
>>a haiku i wrote for you:
>>sister wendy like men you skip past women's ancient symbols
>>THE GODDESS (harper & row)
