About

The purpose of this page is to share information and insights about the need to balance masculine and feminine values in our society.  It is also about the place of art and symbols and how we can help people to grow, find a sense of meaning and purpose in their lives, and therefore happiness.
I have a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the Parsons School of Design and a degree (DNSAP) from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France.  I went to Paris to study and live when I was 19 years old, and I stayed there for nearly 18 years.  Currently, I work in a public library.  My goals include the plan to create a business in which art and healing are priorities.

While I love to write and to draw and paint, I devote most of my time to managing my physical life – earning money to pay for home, food, car, and to taking care of my home, child, and pets.  It is my hope to raise awareness of the value of the arts in our culture.  It would be wonderful to earn a living from my art and to devote my days to creative expression.  I feel all humans have innate gifts and talents and should be valued and remunerated for those gifts, which should be developed and shared with the world. No gift should be considered more valuable than another, and none of us should have to do work other than our true vocation in order to ensure our physical survival.  While the public library provides a valuable public service, and I do love books and reading, I feel my talents would be better used in other arenas.  Thus this blog and other projects that are currently brewing…

    • Hi. Thank you so much for reading my blog. I am glad you are enjoying it! I feel it is important to express what is in my heart, and for many years a desire has been tugging at me to help in my own small way to bring back the goddesses to our world and a true appreciation of balance in ourselves and the world. It has been a joy to discover blogging and it brings me energy to write and share with others. The process of writing also helps me formulate my ideas and bring new and creative concepts to the surface of my awareness. Please continue to read, write, and share.

      • I’ve enjoyed blogging for similar reasons 🙂 and I’m sort of hooked haha. Our thoughts communicated through words can make such an impact. I’ve heard that words are more powerful than the sword, and I have to agree.

  2. I too really enjoy reading your blog. I believe we ALL lose something when the Divine Feminine is negated. I value your words and art as an expression of celebrating all that is feminine. My sister just sent me this link to a TED talk and I feel somehow it’s appropriate to share. Namaste. http://www.ted.com/talks/sarah_kay_if_i_should_have_a_daughter.html

    • Hi Sheryl! Thank you for visiting my blog. Your about page is beautifully written and conceived. I truly believe that we would all be so much happier and healthier if we were able to let go of conventional expectations and express our gifts, our talents, our true natures…as you express so well! Rebekah 🙂

  4. I was wondering from what island in the Caribbean you are from…since I noticed some French words in a short story you posted. When I lived in France, I knew many people from Guadeloupe and Martinique… 🙂

    • Hi Laura, So sorry it has taken me so long to respond to you! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Friendship seems to be a very popular search topic. It seems to me that in our overly busy world, few people (other than those who are retired) have the time and attentiveness it takes to develop deeper connections that intimacy requires. I try to keep my life as simple as I can so that I can carve out time for the simple things that make life meaningful, but as a single parent, this takes some dedication! I am looking forward to reading your posts about friendship!
