"Not ALL women are guilty"

Amazing the things that turn up in old books while doing research ;

Reynolde Scot, a Kentishman whom we recall as gardener
and author of the Hoppe Garden, 1574, wrote the
Discouerie of Witchcraft in 1584. He felt that not all
women who were tried as witches were guilty, stating,
"Now the witches are mortal women, which be commonly
old, lame, blear-eyed, pale, foul and full of wrinkles,
poor, sullen."

I find myself at a crossroads.
 My little box doesn't fit anymore. The box my peers put me in over the years. The multiple sided, neatly labeled place my friends, family, lovers, co-workers, clients have filed away my mysterious knowings, quirky personality, feminist sensibilities, gypsy lifestyle, awkward social skills, piercing tongue ... you get the idea. 
The moment I defined and accepted my box, it shattered. 
An uncomfortable experience it has been, no cave to crawl into, nothing from my past soothes me, no dream lulls me - it's all uncharted territory.
