This is a beautiful analysis, and I suspect that some of these views of Wolfe
on the Mother Goddess also apply to There are Doors -- in which our 
world is represented by the land and the goddess's by the sea !!! 
One of the names the goddess goes by in TAD is Lara Morgan.  I googled 
and found that the meaning of Morgan is "of the sea".  This relation of the
goddess with ocean is a recurring theme of Wolfe's.
