A “Green” Sequin of Kindness

My friend Barbara P has created a very positive cable TV show out of Lowell, MA called “A Sequin of Kindness”. (A sequin is small, but it reflects a lot of light, just like a small act of kindness.) She interviews people about kind acts they have done, like donating a kidney. It is kindContinue reading “A “Green” Sequin of Kindness”

The Whey of the Goddess

The Whey of the Goddess by RM Allen, http://www.nhgoddess.com   10/1/2012 “Little Miss Muffet, sat on a tuffet (a stool), eating her curds and whey.” We have all heard this nursery rhyme from 1805. Why would they let the poor little thing eat spoiled, stinky, curdled milk? The thought always made me gag. Thanks to theContinue reading “The Whey of the Goddess”

Lacto-Fermented Goddess

I saw the ad for a free demonstration of lacto-fermented cabbage at the library, and I had to go see it.  For a long time I knew I had to eat more fermented food, but I didn’t know quite what it was. I went, I saw, I tasted. I found out about an old cookbookContinue reading “Lacto-Fermented Goddess”

It’s Time To Make the Triple Goddess Elixir of Beltane.

Beltane is just an eyelash away. One Beltane 21 years ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with rosebud lips. This Beltane will be the first time that I no longer share a roof with my baby girl (and her sister too). The boat of the Crone has come through the mist toContinue reading “It’s Time To Make the Triple Goddess Elixir of Beltane.”

Goddesses & Scrybes

Gotta love local! I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Berry & Croft on their show about local authors, “Scrybes.” There must have been a good star lighting my house of Hollywood that week! What luck!   See the video here (much better quality than the ones I usually shoot commando-style on my cell phone)  Continue reading “Goddesses & Scrybes”

Wise Woman Radio

Winter Greetings! It is Sadie Hawkins Day 2012 and it is snowing outside as the sun sets. I sit by the fire with my seed catalogs, and dream of a multi-day herbal conference I will attend at Newfound Lake in New Hampshire this August. Will I see you there? Speaking of herbs, I had theContinue reading “Wise Woman Radio”

2012: The Accidental Goddess

It is 2012. I do not claim to adhere to any one particular religion. I attend a Universalist-Unitarian church, and the UU tradition accepts all of the religions listed above (and more) into their fold. The only doctrine of the church is Love. It is that simple, and I am into simple. If you wereContinue reading “2012: The Accidental Goddess”

Goddess in the Community Garden

By RM Allen, author of New Hampshire Goddess Chronicles, Oct. 2011   Eating local, fresh food is the first step on many people’s green journey. Once you begin a real relationship with your food, it naturally leads you to start to think about how to live a healthier, greener, and then sooner or later –Continue reading “Goddess in the Community Garden”

If a Tree Falls in the Forest, Does a Goddess Hear It?

By RM Allen http://www.nhgoddess.com Green Goddess Greetings! I was recently walking in the woods around my favorite trail. I came upon something dismaying to me. How book-shaka-lucky for me that I had my fancy new smartphone with me so I could take a video. Visit my new YouTube channel to see what I saw, byContinue reading “If a Tree Falls in the Forest, Does a Goddess Hear It?”

The Joy of Nettles (so what if they sting)

The Joy of Nettles (so what if they sting) by RM Allen June 2011 I used to be scared of nettles. They hid in the tall grass and bit my ankles when I was a child, like a monster under the bed. Now I am in love with nettles. Especially the sting. I seek itContinue reading “The Joy of Nettles (so what if they sting)”
