Cats, Commitment and Coming Home with Raven Mardirosian
Author and tarot expert, Raven Mardirosian joins us to discuss her new book, Just Another Crazy Cat Lady Story. Raven will share her journey to find herself after being rejected by the church, her sort-of girlfriend and the wild ride of what it means to be a lesbian. In her cross-country quest for a little peace, love and a good home, she finds two feline friends who keep her tethered to the earth for 20 years, carrying her through numerous breakups, the death of her mother and helping her finally answer the question, "When are you ever going to settle down?" Her furry companions are part of the great evolution and healing of her soul, offering love and understanding in their unique and unconditional way.
