I am an herbalist, forever studying traditional western herbalism, but am mostly a grassroots, folk herbalist at heart. I love nature and working with it as much as I can. (www.radiclerootherbs.ca)
"When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth." -Kahlil Gibran
I love that quote! I do indeed follow whenever love beckons!
I'm polyamorous, in the sense that I love A LOT of people; each person in a way unique to that individual. Many of my relationships are not sexual, but some are, and things change and flow. I do not appreciate anything/anyone that tries to control my ability to love everyone in the way that feels right at the time. I am completely open and honest with all parties involved. I practise a lot of consent and expect the same in return. Communication is key!!!
There is a man in my life with whom I share a gorgeous and bright little Bean born in the spring of 2014. I've been rocking momma-hood since and love it. We live up the street from each other in an off grid community and share parenting and homesteading responsibilitis.
I love going camping, dancing (especially in the woods, at festivals!!!), singing, learning, exploring, reading, writing, growing/gardening, crafting, etc etc etc.
I joined this site because several of my awesome mateys told me it's got great folks on it. I'm looking to meet any awesome people for a variety of fun. If some of the folks I meet end up being my lovers, swell! If not, the more merry friends, the better! :)
I could ramble forever here, but I would rather not be putting too much of my energy into a self profile. Message me if you are called to and we can get to know each other.
Rocking permaculture life off grid on my land in new Brunswick. I'm part of a community land trust that gives away land to folks who want to join our band of crazy wonderful dreamers!
Also enjoying making and vending herbal products and other crafts!
Being a momma to a brilliant little being who fills my life with adventure and beauty and love!! :D
Working at the art and nature school here for the toddlers program as well as the preschool. :) lots of fun!
Enjoying good times with my ever blooming community of people whom I love.
Expanding my comfort zones, confronting my fears, defining and testing my boundaries, loving, learning, and searching.
Walking my path and enjoying the journey.
Botanical name for plants! (and loving it, latin is hot!)
Making epic and delicious organic goodness!
Saying fun words (usually therapeutic properties) that people go 'what???' to. [sialagogue, mucilaginous, emmenagogue, amphoteric, etc]
Connecting with nature and all it's inhabitants
Crocheting and crafting!
Being sassy, sarcastic, and flirtatious. (These do not always go together)
Lots of things!
My flirtatious behaviour - or my blunt behaviour - or both... I'm sassy!
Something I'm wearing (homemade clothes, or a patch/button or something like that)
That I start shy and end up extroverted when I find my comfort level.
That I don't shave and smell like a humyn!
Depends where I am and what I'm doing I guess.....
Books: Herb books!!! I also love fantasy stuff. I'm a total Harry Potter nerd and proud of it. I really like to read ZINES too, they are great times. Reading is something I love and can totally get sucked into once I find a book that interests me. I enjoy info and DIY books too! Helpful resources are great!!!
Movies: I think most movies are pretty lame these days. I do love watching movies though. Popcorn and snuggles!!!!! :D mmmm
I have a problem with not remembering I've seen a movie until I'm part way through it... and also with falling asleep right before the end of movies.... I dislike movies that make me want to scream and vomit from all the monogamy pushing they do.... I like documentaries and movies with good lessons or that make me laugh. I'm into a good sci-fi or fantasy movie too!
Shows: I don't have a TV, but my laptop brings me the things I enjoy. I love anime! One Piece is my fave. I also enjoy some random TV shows, especially ones that make me laugh.
Once again, sci-fi and fantasy are my faves!!! :D please tell me if you know any good ones, I'm always looking for something rad to put on while I'm crocheting in the winter!
Music: I love music! Especially live!!! Right now I most frequently enjoy listening to folk punk, folk, hip hop (the non sexist kind... check out Blankspace, Test Their Logick, etc), reggae, classic rock, dubstep, house, psy, etc.... I love to dance and sing so anything that I want to dance to or sing along with makes me happy. I listen to a lot of bands from Canada that have travelled through my city. I love house shows! :D I really love music with positive messages that make me remember why I love life! Human is really good for this! Wookiefoot is fun too! Lots of great music out there that I'm excited to experience throughout my life.
Food: I LOVE FOOD!!!!!!!! I try my best to eat as organically as possible. I do this by growing as much of my own food as I can. I do consider myself a freegan however, so I will eat things that are not vegan and not organic if they are given to me or I have acquired them out of a dumpsta.... Organic dumpsters are the shit!!!! :D lol
I used to think i didn't like a lot of foods, but I started eating them and now I love most of them! There are still a very few things that I would prefer not to eat, but I'm pretty darn open!
I LOVE broccoli, garlic, millet, beanz, almost all fruit, kale, spinach, squash, oh man... i just really love food! :) Would you like to share some with me????

I'm a thinker.... too much a lot of the time really. Need to quiet my mind..... silence is our natural state after all!
