I've never been one to talk about myself. I'd much rather sit back and walk the fringes of your mind. The ghost that haunts your mind.
A little about me.. hmm
I am deeply spiritual, but my philosophies are not limited to one particular sect or religion. I am more of a melting pot of ideas and manifestations. The majority of what I ~practice~ would be earth based spiritualities, with Buddhist compassion and non-attachment.
I don't watch television, but I do tend to go through entire binges of a series on dvd. Some of my obsessions are; Sex & the City, Trueblood, Dexter, the X-files, Intervention, LA Ink, Vampire Diaries and the BBC's Planet Earth Series. I also love documentaries.
I suppose I have always leaned towards a gothic exterior, enjoying the darker side of romance and costuming. Though lately I seem to find myself thinking I am more of a hippy/ gyspy then a goth. I'm starting to enjoy color and big gypsy jewlery. I am a complete glutton when it comes to coats, boots and scarves.
I tend to be a minimalist in terms of my space so I seem to go through binges of collecting things then purging and giving things away to create more empty space. But there are some things I collect that I simply can't part with. My collections include: letters; in this day and age so many people have no time to send real mail and use the electronic version instead. My friends and I still send paper letters and poetry and inspirations. I also collect sacred heart imagery and I seem to be getting a bit of a collection of Virgin Mary icons. I also dig wooden boxes, and old hardcover books ( as well as any other books- those I don't part with) & antique suitcases.
In terms of music my tastes are all over the place. I love swing, big band, old jazz ( nina simone, Billy Holiday), old punk, classic rock ( the Doors, Pink Floyd,Janis Joplin), even some *golden oldies*, heavier stuff like Tool, Kidney Thieves,VNV Nation, Mudvayne, Stabbing Westward, and even cheesy 80's hits. I am addicted to online radio and will spend an afternoon shuffling through various genres of music just cuz. Right now I adore romantic classical and I can't seem to shake my love of industrial music either. I think music is such a transformative form of communication that I just could not live without. I will run for an hour just so I can listen to a new playlist un-interrupted.
I am an avid bookworm. I like all manner of fiction, literature and non-fiction. Everything from the occult to war history, self help, biography, eco-politics, cosmology, sociology to classic literature. I adore Anias Nin and wish to emulate her passion like no one else. Right now I am on a government conspiracy binge. Though I also do enjoy the occasional cheesy horror novel. My guilty indulgences or escapes are generally based on the supernatural. Authors such as Laurell K. Hamilton or Stephanie Meyer and Kelly Armstrong. But no one does it like the master Edgar Allen Poe.
My passion is creating wonderful herbal beauty products. I love to cook and create so making soaps and lotions I see as nothing other then an extension of the nourishment I put into my body. I own the company Accents of the Spirit.
Fight Club is my mantra!! Tyler Durden Rocks. "First you have to give up. First, you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're gonna die. Until you know that, you are useless.It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything." ~Tyler Durden
