Independence Day and the Goddess Columbia

This week we celebrate our nation's Independence from Mother Britain by recognising our very own Goddess, the Lady Columbia!

 

Columbia is a historical and poetic name used for the United States of America and is also the name of its female personification.

 

What would the Goddess Columbia's attributes be? Democracy for one - you know; I don't think the Greeks had a Goddess of Democracy- so this is an original! Certainly, Liberty and Justice. The Romans had the Goddess Libertas; plus the Greeks, Romans and the Egyptians has Goddesses of Justice.

 

Is Columbia a WAR Goddess? Where does our national Darker Side come from?

 

And finally - naturally, a Goddess has to have a myth, right? I've got an idea for a myth which I'll share with you - we'll see if it's any good.

Be we. Do good. Enjoy the show!

Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Celia Ferran: "Red Alabaster & Blue"; Talking Heads: "The Democratic Circus"; R.E.M.: "Radio Free Europe"; Kellianna: "Thank You, Mother"; T. Thorne Coyle: "First We'll Take Manhattan" and more.

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Maybe you've composed a new poem and would like to hear it on the radio. If you want to submit audio to The Spiral Dance, send me an email. There are basically no rules - just no harsh language, no commercial self-promotion and no Christian-bashing. Please let me know what you think about the show. I'm always open to suggestions; email spiraldance1@ excite.com or radiohawthorne@yahoo.com
