the Shadow Tales:

Inspired by the work of Jungian Psychoanalyst Clarissa Pinkola-Estes Women Who Run with Wolves.  Skeleton Woman chronicles the traumatic tale in which the protagonist is left for dead under the sea until she is snared by a fisherman, whose first reaction of fear turns to kindness.

By giving her his heart,  the promise of a deeper love allows both to heal and ultimately reach their highest potential.

Because the fisherman helped free her from her tangled and misunderstood state and saw her as a teacher and a lover, she became his powerful ally and partner.


“This mortal drum beats time with tide as flesh adheres to bone,

and ocean tears from lovers eye beg deeper love to own.”
