"A strange mixture of paradox and parody. Handel and The Ting Tings. Ballet and Cartoon Network. Prada and Target. Gothic, preppy, hippie, chic. Narrow misses and broad strokes. Fine China and broken pottery. Macabre princess sitting among the truth and sorrow of generational confusion. Fate and free-will fighting to change just one life for the better. Follower-leader. Creative brilliance, devastating trauma. Spirit led. Mystic, prophet, seer, social reformist. Modern gothic, tortured poet. Happy, in a melancholic sort of way. Lover, fighter, sage and child. Quietly forming words to realize freedom. Quietly changing. I am... that's all."
I have a love-hate relationship with New York City. I love Gluten-free cooking. I could spend hours at the MET staring at Jules Bastien-Lepage's Joan of Arc. I have never worn a pair of ice-skates, but I'd be willing to try, if someone held my hand the whole time. I've seen almost every version of Alice in Wonderland ever filmed. I'm a complete nerd-girl/ fan-girl of most things geeky and wonderful. I DO NOT like puppets. I love other peoples children.
Life is slow here, and that has allowed me to reawaken my spiritual side in surprising ways. I'm not sure where my journey is taking me, but the adventure is exciting.
In other news: I read voraciously, dabble in decoupage, and spend a lot of time wandering around outdoors. I'm a writer as well, but journaling and poetry is all I have time for at present. The novel will get finished one day...
I guess... most people don't really TELL you the first thing they noticed about you, so I can't REALLY know.

But, as far as leisure activities go, I like eating out, movies, live theatre, bookstores, art museums, gallery hopping, shopping, taking walks, long drives, cigar lounges, and quiet get togethers with good friends and good conversation.
Artists, dreamers, creatives, inventors, and nerds welcome.
I honestly don't care about "down-to-earth" or "laid-back"... what do those terms even mean? Just be you, as beautifully and brilliantly as you can.
And if you're allergic to animals this isn't going to work... cause I have cats, and live with dogs as well...
