|5 March, Ash cloud rising from Pu`u `Ō `ō as crater floor collapses|
due to magma withdrawal, Kilauea Volcano.
I was speaking figuratively in referring to Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess who lives in Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, when I wrote:
This force that is welling up from the interior of the planet is another incarnation of Mother River, the Mother of Life, the Nurturer, but also the Destroyer. She is what the Hawaiians call Pele, the Volcano Goddess.
How was I to know that she was so soon to express herself?
