"Here Lilith shall repose, and find a place to rest. There shall the owl nest and lay and hatch and brood in its shadow."
In the first days, in the very first days, In the first nights, in the very first nights, In the first years, in the very first years,
"There was actually a part of me that felt really yummy going: ‘Ok babe, you’re in a bit of trouble. Things aren’t going well. Put your feet up. I’ll make you a cup of tea ‘cause you need some advice. I’m not busy this week so you’re in luck’. There has been a shift in the way I see myself. Instead of ‘poor little human’, it’s more like: ‘Ok, I’m human and maybe you are immortal, but I know stuff ‘cause I’m here, so I do have a perspective that I value. That’s really a wonderful place, I think. Humans haven’t been taught that they should value their perspective. It’s always been so much bowing and scraping to the mythological deity. And I’m kind of feeling like He needs a babe. I’m definitely going after the patriarchy in that song. I’m going after the male presence that’s dominated religion and calling forth the goddess to do that. It’s a goddess thing to do." -Tori Amos
