Birth of the Crone #2

Birth of the Crone #2

Here I am trying to give birth to myself! As I try to push my crone out I feel a sense of excitement about getting to know her. As serious as the face coming out of the vagina is, she’s wearing a labia bonnet and glasses –the image is both startling and comical.

“When the distress of menopause reaches its peak, you begin the push toward your new life. As you reach the outer edge of menopause, you crown yourself Crone.”
