This is the "Water" issue of When Women Waken. It is our 10th themed issue, inspired by galvanizing talks by Terry Tempest Williams on critical water shortages around the world and the need for a spiritual recognition of water as the source of life, to be honored, respected and protected.
Autumn Skye Morrison, a Canadian artist, is our featured artist. We considered Autumn's "Mourning Dew" painting for the cover to convey the seriousness of droughts around the world, but the bleak parched land might discourage some from picking up the journal, so we chose her "Compassion" painting, a goddess who we imagine is grieving the droughts and poisoning of waters from fracking, coal ash, lead pipes and more, while her hands are in prayer as if in supplication for divine mercy.
Jamie K. Reaser, an American writer, poet and naturalist, is our featured writer. We are publishing two of her pieces, "Buoyancy," a memoir piece from the Our Stories, Too issue, and "What Matters,"
a poem from her forthcoming poetry collection.
We are pleased to include song lyrics by North Carolina singer-songwriter, Isabel Taylor. You can even listen to her perform the song if you visit her piece online.
Enjoy the variety of poetry, prose, paintings and photographs on the theme of water. And if you'd like to connect with the contributors, look for their pieces online at whenwomenwaken.org/water and share your responses.
