In her 20s, Tamar Hodel tried to commit suicide several times. Michelle had a strong and good father—Gil, a probation officer with bohemian leanings. But her mother had died when she was young. The minute young Michelle met Tamar, who by then had her baby Deborah Elizabeth, she was fascinated. It was late afternoon, and she was dressed in a beautiful lavender suit with her hair in a beehive.
She was so exotic! She was instantly my idol. Nonetheless, despite her desperate need to rationalize the pathology of her girlhood, Tamar took Michelle into her home and made a young sophisticate of her. I wanted to give her the good girlhood that was taken from me. I wanted to champion her because no one had championed me.
After Tamar divorced Stan Wilson, she took Michelle, by then a young teenager, to San Francisco—with Deborah Elizabeth in tow—and the two painted their small apartment lavender. FaunaElizabeth Hodel Wilson Simon is a quiet, vulnerable woman who is a photo editor and currently works in retail. I had wanted this story to have a MeToo happy ending, or at least a happy middle : a hideously abused incest victim daughter of a likely killer—a 14 year old wrongly sent to juvenile hall for telling the truth!
But, sadly, the truth was different.
Confession: In the s I quit the board of directors of a major domestic violence organization because the sheltered women did not live up to my fantasy of wonderful, grateful reformed women. Life is meaner, and psyches more damageable than we wish them to be. Destroyed girlhoods can have ugly consequences.
I did whatever my mother wanted me to do. When she was 13 her grandfather George Hodel drugged her and for seven hours she would intermittently wake up, naked and spread eagled. FaunaElizabeth and I have spoken several times.
She is a gentle woman, and it feels to me that she is sincerely telling the truth. Because of the sexual abuse, FaunaElizabeth got herself on birth control pills. She wanted a free life and an education. But, she says, her mother Tamar switched them out for fake pills, and she became pregnant. FaunaElizabeth had a baby at 15, just like Tamar had. In addition, Tamar was verbally and physically abusive to her daughter—often calling her the N-word.
Amazingly, FaunaElizabeth finally broke free, got married, had another child, and forced herself into a normal, reasonably happy life with a great deal of therapy. And she forgave her mother, who went on to become a hippie and have three sons: Peace, Love, and Joy. And she forgave her mother. This fills me with awe. I am still triumphing. There are a lot of people like us out there. And I want to be a voice for those people. Unless you were born with a mental defect, monsters are not born, they are made.
They are made by their environments. She has won 10 major magazine awards. Warrior one and chair pose may help some stay chill, but all that free time actually leads this brain down rabbit holes that can cause some major freak outs. We asked people who study stress, and here are answers plus 11 ways to deal with chronic stress. My mom, Fauna Elizabeth as referred to in this article did not continue the cycle of abuse with her children.
Abuse passed down for generations can be a very difficult cycle to break, especially if you have no one to teach you not to repeat it. Kudos to her! And all best wishes and joy to you. We understand people who walk away from partners that are abusive, because the abused in those relationships had a choice—a choice in being with the partner and a choice in leaving the partner.
How can this be possible? But it is. Once again, the brilliant Sheila Weller shows us the world and its people and makes us see it all differently. Takes my breathe away. Sheila Weller is always so brilliant, and this one is a must-read. What a story!! We are the Voice of Smart, Bold Women 45 and over! Our mantra is Age Boldly! No where else will you find authentic, original content like this. So give a little or give a lot. We want to continue publishing stories about love later in life, adult children never leaving home, wearing a bikini after 50 and trips of a lifetime!

Are the wineries closed? Would anyone know of such wineries on the Tamar Valley Route? Any answers will be really appreciated. To answer your question, yes tourists do visit wineries in September and yes some maybe closed, normally the smaller boutique ones and yes it will be cold in early September, and it will more than likely be snowing at elevation.
For wineries around the Tamar, and other Tasmania regions have a look at the link below and click on the region you want to visit, I. Tamar valley. Details on the Tamar wine route are here: tamarvalleywineroute. I'd have a look at Stayz for the Tamar valley. Or if you want hotel comfort and restaurants, stay in Launceston.
