Wolves and Women have much in common. Both share a wild spirit. Women and Wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen. They are loyal, protective of their packs and of their pups. They are wild and beautiful. Both have been hunted and captured. Even in captivity, one can see in the eyes of a Woman, or a Wolf, the longing to run free, and the determination that should the opportunity arise, Whoosh, they will be gone…..
- [Women who run with the Wolves]. Clarissa Pinkola Estés
All these long years I’ve been fighting a wild nature and now I recognize it for what it is. I don’t want to be tamed. I don’t want to be domesticated. These things to me feel like death. In this world, for a woman, all the forces converge to subdue us, to break us, to mold us and to diminish us. Yet I still am fierce and it burns in my chest and makes me restless. My instincts to protect, my loyalty, my love and my ferocity – the intensity of it scares me. The only thing I can think of is …a wolf.
