Here is the last of the wonderful graphics my niece, writer and designer Kate Wong, designed for my novel, The Goddess Lounge. This is a quote I particularly like.
The full story is this. In the Norse creation myth, everything started when a drop of steam was created by the meeting of a volcano and a glacier. That drop of steam turned into humans, gods, giants, dwarves and everything else. But the volcano and the glacier: they never really go away. So often we find our own lives hanging in the balance: a volcano on one side, a glacier on the other. For a lot of people, it's too hard. Fire consumes them. Ice turns them into hardened shells. But not goddesses. Goddesses are burnished by fire. They are illuminated by ice. Which is why, when given the choice, you should always choose to be a goddess.
Thanks, again, Kate. You know, you really should check out more of Kate's work. Here is a link to her website. http://stripedcatstudio.com/2012/08/12/katewongonline
