Minerva resides in the depth of the forests, in the midst of creatures, creepers and critters that crawl. She is the only one who oversees it all. She’s wise, observant, calm and cool. She knows exactly what’s going on, what it all means, what’s right and what’s not, what mistakes are made and what lessons can be learned. She will, however, only spread her wings with the falling of the dusk.

MINERVA is the teacher and the guide. She has all the knowledge and the answers but will not simply hand you the solution on a gold platter as she knows that will not help you in the long run. You are the captain and hold the reins and one day you will be able to oversee it all and strike a balance.

In the meantime, she will stand by you and look over your shoulder and perhaps give you a nudge now and then.
