Hellena Post - Creatrix
I've tried on so many uniforms and badges that now I'm just me - mother of 8 children and all that entails, flowmad, and human animal parent. Writer of this living book of a blog, philosopher, and creatrix of hand dyed and spun crocheted wearable art. I gave up polite conversation years ago, and now I dive into the big one's.....birth, sex, great wellness, life, passion, death and rebirth.

I'm perfect in my imperfections. I've got a crass sense of humour, but only when it's safe to come out, and most of my mistakes have led to great lessons. I learnt so much from raising my first daughter, because even though I thought I was doing it so differently to my parents……I repeated a lot of the patterns that they taught me in different ways. And I fucked up in lots of ways. In others I was awesome. But I learnt from it all. And through all my mistakes, and my flaws, and my habits, I've been pushed into areas and concepts and realisations that I never would have, being a nice girl doing nice things.

A few months ago it seemed that there was death all around me, and I sat often gazing off into the distance, brought to the present by a child or a need. Thinking and thinking and thinking about it. Trying to understand and make sense. And when I finally wrote it out, I sent it straight away and hot off the press to the beautiful Janet Fraser, cause we'd decided to play the guest post game, and I knew that it was the piece for the job.
Janet has totally blown me away over the past couple of years. Having some of the most intense experiences a human can endure, that could easily send a person into brokenness or bitterness, and coming through the experience exuding compassion, love, clarity, humour and joy.
I'm honoured to guest post on her blog, the name of which is Janet Fraser....Where birth and feminism intersect.
