the wild woman




Several years ago, my Argentinian friend offered me a book, without saying anything but with a special light in her eyes.  Twenty years have passed and « Women who run with the wolves » by Clarissa Pinkola Estés is still on my night table.

Tonight, while opening it casually, it offered me this timely sentence:

« I know many writers who keep a sentence posted over their desk, and a woman who has written it on a piece of paper that she keeps  folded in her shoe.  It contains a line from a poem by Charles Simic which represents the key prescription for us all: « Those who  cannot howl, will not find their herd ». If you want the wild Woman back, refuse to be captured ».
