“Piping Opportunities for Women” Marilee said

“Right, P O W” Freyja retorted

“Call Richard, he’ll give the whole lowdown on that. There are lotsa sisters in the field, that’d be my recommendation” she said

“…..hmm, P O W aka prisoner of war….good one…that’s about right” Freyja chuckled

“What you need to do though is decide when the right time is if you’re going to shoot for the level ‘C’, and I can’t decide that for you. Yep, its the juggle with the fam for us, we put our other work aside, we sacrifice for our children then pick up what we want later and somehow it all works out but its worth it”. Her conviction was certain and practiced. She had the gist of it wrapped up beautifully.

“What about aluminum?” asked Freyja

“No, you won’t touch that until level ‘A’, here have a look at this manual it’s ‘C'” she said

“What about math, what level do I need”

“Grade 10, will do it” quipped Marilee

“Oh good, ‘cuz that’s about what I got”

Marilee picked up the phone and called Richard and said,

“I’ve got a woman here who will be contacting you, her name is, uh Freyja-Frigg….”

The association of women workers who welded was tight. The sisters banded together, they were a family by trade by sheer desire to work with metal. It was a curious thing and beautiful at the same time. Tough and rough diamonds working with steel, copper and aluminum. Unafraid of fire and heat, ready for action, for combat! Ready to suit up and get down to joining.

“Keep in touch k, let me know how it goes”

“I will, thanks for your help” Freyja wandered out to the lobby picking up pieces of paper as she moved to the exit, caffeine was her next stop.

….’what a feeling, keeps me reeling’….a little worn around the edges she headed to the Siren…
