From Phoenix: This month Milk & Honey turns 20! That's quite an impressive milestone for a retail shop with a specialty such as ours. This month also marks the one year anniversary of me womaning the ship. Another impressive milestone, if I do say so myself.
But there is more to these milestones than just numbers or business. The fact that this shop has been open for two decades reflects how important the Goddess is to our community. Over the years there have been different permeations of Milk & Honey, but the bottom line has always been Goddess-orientated.
In these days of violence and fear, the Goddess can bring us back to a place of wholeness and peace. And it doesn't matter how you see Her; She could be Mary, Kuan Yin, Freya, Oshun, Brigid, Lakshmi; Gaia, Earth Mama or one of a million other Goddess names. What She does is help us to remember that we are all connected.
After 20 years Milk & Honey has a spirit of her own. She is her own entity and all of the Goddesses here speak with her and for her. It is an honor and a privilege to do the work of holding space for her to speak to community.
And so I say, Happy Birthday Milk & Honey. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much for helping to keep the Goddess in the North Bay. Thank you so much for being a constant reminder of the blessings in this world.
