Gayles, PHD is pleased to announce the opening of her new office at 6300 West Loop South Suite 215 Bellaire, Texas (Loop 610 at Fournace Place) 667-6047 While reading Sonia Johnson does your heart beat a little faster? Do you find yourself nodding, saying "Yes! Yes! That's right! That's how I've always felt!n I know that was my reaction. And then I asked "How do we do this?" So I thought really hard about it. I gave my old brain a real workout. Weeks passed and I couldn't think of a single idea. Finally, I stopped thinking. I said "Slow down,Denise. Relax. Picture yourself where you want to be, doing what you want to do." I find myself in front of a large old house. There are three great oaks out front. As I walk up the steps to the porch, I see women sitting together, talking and laughing. Three children run out into the yard. I go through the front door, and looking to my left, I see a busy library. Ahead is a staircase, leading to the bedrooms. To the right is a dining room and a huge homey kitchen. Two women are bustling about and the smells emanating are mouth watering. I walk on through to the back porch and down the steps to a bountiful garden. I follow a path into the woods and after a few minutes come to a clearing, a circle of stones. I c9^ feel the wom^n— power here. Many rituals are held in this place. After a moment, I move on, this time to a path on the other side of the clearing. As I walk,I can hear the wildlife all around me. I come out of the woods and see campsites. Further onf there are women, many women, working together to build a restroom/bathhouse. They are singing and laughing and sweating. Back towards the woods my eye is caught by something fluttering in the wind. As I get near I see that the ground is marked off for a building, a small sign says 'Bunkhouse'. I also see a large barn-like structure where we work at whatever we like, we sell our wares to the visiting women, and there is room for recreation in times of inclement weather. There is an herb garden and a pond. There is cooperation and love. There are women and children, and the beginning of our future. This is a place where women and children from Houston and surrounding areas will come to retreat from city life and patriarchal life - to join in rituals - tc meet other women - to learn - to commune with nature - to build our world. Any women interested in joining me in creating this place, please v/rite to Denise Turner, 5^-3^ Briarbend, Houston, Texas 77096.
