The Gift Q14: Quill

The book “the goddess vs the alphabet” explores the relationship between literacy and patriarchy, proposing that the rise of the written word paralleled the fall of the power and presence of feminin power. The author, Leonard Shlain argues that “learning written language, especially alphebetic, alters human brain function in a way that emphasizes linear thinking over wholistic thinking.”

Perhaps the priestess mind thrives when given ample opportunity to engage in wholistic thinking…

perhaps the priestess beads pauses from verbal communication altogether…

what would it take to give yourself a break from the command of the quill? Can you take a vacation— a day or more off—from written, verbal communication? What would you need in order to nurture and tend to the priestess in you?
