The feast of this fairy-tale old lady, so much beloved and feared by Italian children, takes origin from the “old lady” which was burned in the squares to celebrate the end of the year, a symbol of time cycles always ending and beginning again.
I believe in my heart that my initiation as a witch occurred when I first experienced the strange, mystical lights in the sky, which some people identify as UFOs.
The inspiration, and artistic vision of my book’s cover.
I’ve been waiting a long, long time to finally show you this: My friend and colleague Susan Demeter –whom I first became acquainted with on account of our mutual participation in the UFOs: Reframing the Debate anthology– asked me at the beginning of this year to design the cover of her first solo book, which is being published by the Italian editorial company Le Due Torri in both Italian and English.
