.....and now we
Return to our regularly scheduled self summary.
I didn't trust it for a moment,
But I drank it anyway,
The wine of my own poetry,
And it gave me the daring
To take hold of the darkness,
And tear it down,
And cut it into little pieces.
Working at a job I love. I am a teaching artist, working with kids in theater.
Staying focused on being a good single mom
being an active and empowered community member
Loving my friends and family
Doing the work of tribe
Growing amazing tomatoes
Walking my path as a human being wth as much integrity as I can.
Being a fierce and loyal friend
magick, manifestation, ritual,
swimming, teaching others to swim
igniting passion for the arts in children through theater
TV....not so much, although I have liked some series stuff on DVD or netflix. Weeds, Big Love, Lost(until the ending). I am currently a little obsessed with streaming Ted Talks (does that even count as TV?)
Movies...well I liked Zeitgist, and What the Bleep. I think my favorite movie though is Like Water for Chocolate. I do cry during movies, and am sometimes moved by sappy and cliche' I am not particularly fond of predictable action flicks, or humor for the masses films. (didn't like "The Hangover"). I did just buy tickets to CatchingFire for myself and my kids (:
Water! I'm a swimmer, my profession was aquatics, my family (also all swimmers) life revolved around the pool. It was my zen place. I am adjusting to the reality that I can't be there as much, because...well I am clearly not as resistant to the dangers of chlorine as I thought.
Music. I'm a singer. It's been such a part of who I am for so long I can't even imagine what life without music looks
like. Making Music for ritual purposes can trance me out make me feel my connection to divinity more than anything else.
Dirt. None of us can live without dirt (: I really like to play in it, watch stuff turn into it, make things grow out of it that people can eat, or that is medicine.
Chocolate. I suppose I could actually live without it, but who'd want to. The darker, the better! In fact I have been known to just chow raw cacao beans.
Intimate connection. Deep, and meaningful, spiritual sexuality that honors the divinity in myself and my partners
*You are open to fun, light, and adventurous
*You can handle the fact that my life is full of family, tribe, and community, and all the big energy that comes with that.
*You don't buy into media generated bs about body types. I'm a fat girl who can undoubtedly out swim, or arm wrestle you, I am strong and healthy and I love my body just the way it is, and so should you.
*It's also a plus if you are pagan, or pagan friendly.
*You are aware enough and open enough to embrace all gender, sexual, and relationship expressions. Couples are awesome, but that's not what I'm looking for right now, thanx.
*I am also extremely busy, so don't take it personally if you don't hear right back.
Be warned, I am a little bit Feral.
