I'm a Pagan, a Witch (note: not Wiccan), a writer (science fiction and fantasy mostly), and an LGBTQIA+ ally. (And a nurse to pay the bills.)
Mom to 3 rats and 2 Boxers.
Single, child-free, introvert (INTJ).
I'm an expert avoider of housework.
As mentioned above, I'm Pagan (and a witch) but not Wiccan.
I follow mostly the Hellenic pantheon, with a couple additions (Kwan Yin and Blodeuwedd).
(I've been known to describe my path as "highly eclectic solitary shamanic Pagan witch with a dash of Druidry, a dab of Tao, and bit of Buddhism." I've also been known to describe my beliefs as: Monotheistic, Duotheistic, Polytheistic, Pantheistic, and Animistic," all of which fit together perfectly inside my head.)
I'm quite happy on my path, so please, no mail trying to convert me. Christianity just never seemed to fit right.
I love crafts, including paper crafts, counted cross stitch, and crochet -- along with a bunch I would like to learn, like wood burning, wood carving, sculpting, (really need to get some polymer clay), leather working, jewelry making, spinning, weaving... And probably a bunch I've forgotten.
I am allergic to sewing machines and we have a mutual hatred for one another.
My all time favorite book is The Chestry Oak by Kate Seredy.
My favorite authors are Philip K. Dick, Stephen R. Donaldson, and C.J. Cherryh.
Also, I want to be J.K. Rowling when I grow up.
My all time favorite movie is Mary Poppins.
I also love Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Paint Your Wagon (are you getting a musicals theme here yet?)
And, of course, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc.
My musical tastes are the very definition of "eclectic:"
Damh the Bard
Guns N Roses
Favorite color varies according to mood but I love green, earth tones, yellow, orange, purple and metallics (silver, gold, bronze, copper).
Pretty much any color but pink, actually. I think I'm allergic to pink.
Not much of a sandy beach and ocean person, but I love wild rocky shores. And woods and mountains.
Iceland is on my bucket list. So are Greece, Alaska, Australia/New Zealand/Tasmania, and taking a mule ride down into the Grand Canyon. I'd also love to go back to Spain someday.
(I'd better with the lottery pretty soon!)
I love all animals, especially horses, dogs (Boxers), owls and sharks.
Also fantasy critters like unicorns, pegasi, alicorns, dragons, fae, merfolk, etc.
I love all holidays except St. Patrick's Day.
Love open-minded people. Can't stand bigots.
Miscellaneous other stuff I like: butterflies dragonflies daisies yellow roses lightning bugs/fireflies carousels fleur-de-lis
