Fire and the female body make human life possible. Both are mysterious and life giving. Both keep us safe and warm. Both attract and dazzle the eye. And both will burn you if you get too close. Well, actually, that last one only applies to fire. Yet for some reason, every civilization and most people actually think it applies to female beauty. Though we're not sure why as fire's destructive power can be proven with a simple match, but there is really no reason at all for us to think female beauty is destructive. There is no evidence whatsoever that female beauty is dangerous to anyone, yet time and time again throughout history there it is being reviled as one of the destroyers of mankind, Eve being blamed for all sin, witches being burned, whole populations of women put into black sacks. Yes, just like fire, female beauty has been used and even worshipped in many cultures throughout history, including ours. However, also like fire it has been hated and feared as a peerless destroyer of lives and happiness, and the ultimate destination of corrupt souls. We think it's time for a better mythology of female beauty, one that does not base it for no reason on outer fire but for its similarities to inner fire. Our inner fire is what wakes us up in the morning and impels us out of bed to start the day. It raises our faces to look at the sun and stares longingly at the sunset. It is this inner fire that attracts us to the beauty of women, to the wind spreading their hair like flames, the spark in their eyes, their smiles spreading over their faces, and their skin lightly tanned by the sun. It's this fire that Alece is the goddess of, and that all women burn with. It's the fire of life, of love, and of beauty. And it's what we mean by a goddess of fire.
