Welcome to Straw & Spindle. I am Molly Claire — a writer and a scholar of history, myth-archaeology, imagination, stories & psychology


I believe that the community of living things on this planet is in the midst of a profoundly important and necessarily chaotic turning point.  A rebirth, if you will.  For this rebirth to succeed, we need the small, but profoundly important, contributions of many individuals.  Straw & Spindle is a place to gather the contributions of kindred spirits as we patiently and steadfastly persist.  These contributions are like so many straws . . . and with the proper tools, we can spin these straws into gold.

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday.”
Winnie the Pooh

There will be a last straw.  There will be a straw that breaks the camel's back.

We will spin this straw into gold.
