Each of these books was a life changing mind altering journey through outer and inner space in my lifetime.  I met and interviewed, and spoke with this great soul, who was a thinker like no other before or after.  She held up the magic mirror of the perverse reverse.  Using Law against Law, she liberated women’s history from the clutches of the catholic witch burners, by using their own laws against them,and as a result she was excommunicated from Catholic Divinity School. 
  Her book, Beyond God the Father was the foundation for the entire second wave of american feminism.  She named patriarchy the sado-spiritual state of perpetual warfare, and she is still right in all ways, always.  Hail hail, brave spirit spiralling to whole and new heights of ecstatic whirling R N A and memory.  I asked my four year old grandson where he thinks people go when they die, and he said, “Um, they go to the other side of the air.”  I like that, and see her there now.
