It would be great if you loved books and movies and were insatiably curious. I'd love to meet people, now mostly healthy, yet with a history of having a bit of an edge, particularly artists, writers, musicans: misfits who make the world more interesting, more rich. Tell me you've traveled everywhere and what you loved about each place. Tell me you've been in touch with your darkness, your self- loathing, your fear and how how you're stepping over and through them to the other side.
Dance like you enjoy your body and can feel the music in every atom. Pull me into your exciting and positive world and don't tell me you tried to do something you loved but you just couldn't make it happen.
Be the hero of your own life and you will be most welcome to witness the wildness, mystery and powerful beauty of mine.
I am Fiery, Passionate, and Alive
I currently send people to Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands for a living, a fantastic job, though I plan to make screenwriting and running my organic clothing business my next professions. I'm also a costumer/parade artist and perform with a parade troupe at the Oregon Country Fair. I'm also a ritualist, an actress, an Isadora Duncan-inspired dancer, an improv commedienne, and I professionally read and teach the Tarot.
In June 2013 I opened an organic women's clothing boutique in NW, a lovely jewel box of a shop, and we plan to have our own line of clothing. It's exciting! Plus I've published a book about ritual which has been well received. Finally projects I have been developing for a long time are coming to fruition. Yay!
And I have to say I'm living a rich life in my beloved Portland. My community is so wondrous, love-filled and happy/strange. How I love my town!
Plus I have to mention the big, giant, cosmic onion. I'm a spiritual peeler. What do you mean "create your own reality?" I wanna know.
Book: The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell or Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being. How about that David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas or Ursula LeGuin, all of it. John Crowley, Little Big. Jim Harrison, Dalva. Jorge Amado. Kim Stanley Robinson: Mars Trilogy. Sherri Tepper, Starhawk. Tom Robbins is a god. I'm working on reading everything ever written by Neal Stephenson. I'm a reader.
Film: Almost Famous, Strictly Ballroom, Blade Runner, Donnie Darko, Children of Men, Pan's Labrynth, The Handmaid's Tale, Inglorious Basterds, Juno, Slumdog Millionaire, Dangerous Liasons, Amelie, Mississippi Masala, Henry & June, Master and Commander, Room with a View, Fanny & Alexander, Les Enfants du Paradis, Jules et Jim, La Dolce Vita or ... (I've loved so many) And, yes I thought Inception was a wonderful return to a day when films were based on ideas. That day is coming again.
Food: I was a vegetarian for 20 years and then at my naturopath's urging, started eating meat. Now I eat the so-called "Paleo" diet: meat and veggies with some variations though I don't subscribe wholly to the mythology around the romanticized cave man. I have read "Sex at Dawn" however. And I love restaurants.
Music: Manu Chao or The Buena Vista Social Club, Michael Franti/Spearhead. I have a new respect for kirtan: Jai Uttal and Krishna Das. Came a bit late to the Decembrists which I now love. Ray LeMontaigne. Cheb I Sabbah, Tori Amos, Regina Spector - this list is way too long to start.
Ask me ten minutes from now.
"The greatest thing you will ever learn is to be loved, and to give love in return."
