Just about — HOT OFF THE PRESS!
October 6th, 2012 -
My 2nd book: Messages from Mother….Earth Mother will be back from the printer by the end of October. You can read the messages online since I’m being guided to put it up on another new blog called Messages from Mother. There is also a Facebook page about it with links to the blog. https://www.facebook.com/MessagesFromMother
Here is short synopsis about the book:
In a magical blend of humor and spiritual wisdom, Mare Cromwell illuminates the overwhelming love Earth Mother has for us in “Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother.” Chatty, opinionated and profoundly compassionate, Earth Mother discusses the environment (her body!), love, war and soul-woundedness, with specific messages for her sons and her daughter two-leggeds. Reviewers are calling the book a blend of prophecy, hope and inspiration packaged in novel and entertaining ways. If we could listen to Earth Mother, perhaps these are the messages we would be hearing as she so yearns for us to reconnect with her.

So much fun… so humbling to be doing this.
Below is the official announcement on this blog:
Blessings, blessings to all!
Welcome to this eclectic blog I call “For the Earth.”
Many people know me for my book: If I gave you God’s phone number….Searching for Spirituality in America. Then there are others who know me for my environmental work and regular environmental/sustainability posts in the Baltimore region. And even others who know me for my Sacred Gardening workshops. (No, I’m really not as busy as that all sounds.)
I’ve recently moved out to the Frederick, Maryland area and am holed up completing my second book. While working on this long-term project of a book, some kernels of ideas and writing have surfaced that I wanted to share somehow, someway, easily. Hence this venue. I post about spirituality, the Divine/Sacred Feminine, environmental issues, ideas that percolate in my odd head, and occasional quotes that strike me in the moment.
Those who are close friends know that these interests in the sacred and the environment dovetail and thus the inspiration for most of my writing, poetry or prose and my workshops.
These close friends also know me for my gardening business and my studies with Native American teachers. For the past fifteen years I have spent more time outside plunked on the earth weeding and tending perennials in beautiful gardens than anywhere else. Thank you to the powers that be that have facilitated this amazing way to pay the bulk of my bills.
At present though, the gardening work is on hiatus as I commit to completing this book. Though I am dabbling in learning more about organic gardening and herbalism through assisting with a small farm near Frederick and some webinars.
Plus I’ve been on a limerick kick recently. Cow limericks, among other topics. They are great fun and I’m considering doing a separate silly book of cows from around the world - limericks. You can find some of those at these blog posts:
Oh, the second book… It is part memoir and part spirituality with a goodly amount of the Divine Feminine laced throughout it. The Great Mother is quite powerful and has blessed us with so much. And she is being birthed again within our culture to help bring balance between the masculine and feminine, thus I’m being pushed to give her some serious air-time. ;~)
Thanks for swinging by here!
