The Wise Grandmother
Cold body? Cold mind? Doubts? Fear? Depression?
Where are the wise old Women,
The ones who tend the
Shrine of Values,
The ones who teach the social graces?
Without their quiet voices,
Society has lost half its
Lost most of its
Lost nearly all of its depth and resilience.

Sub-clinical Hypothermia, or "Wilson's Syndrome" is a

This is not a new religion. The worship of The Goddess Athena, Goddess
of Wisdom, The Home Arts, Womanly Virtue, and Prudent Warfare, has been
documented as being well known and commonly practiced since before the
founding of the ancient city of Athens in Greece; and is thus a
Traditional and Well Established Religion. It has always emphasized
individualism, self reliance, thinking for one's self, and personal
which led to the
founding of Athens.
Then, as now, Athena sought the brightest minds.
