My main interests are dogs, spirituality, scent, and writing and reading. I'd happily become the old hermit woman who lives in the woods were her animals,her husband, and her small circle of friends, if only that were possible.
Dogs and other animals--I am a total dog geek, and particularly Nihon Ken obsessed. I have two shiba inus, Toby and Jezebel, and I added an American Akita pup named Oskar on July 24th, a few months after my GSD Kai crossed the rainbow bridge. I also love all things about foxes, ravens, and owls, but there are few animals I'm not interested in.
Writing and Reading: I'm a poet and memoirist and have two books available on amazon: Destruction Bay and In an Angry Season. I love literature of all kinds, but read mostly contemporary fiction, esp. by writers of color, and fantasy and sci-fi. I love anything to do with myth and fairy tales.
Scents, esp. BPAL and Arcana. One day I hope to do a course in aromatherapy, not so much to be a perfumer--I dabble but don't think it is my talent--but because I'd love the knowledge, and would like to work in healing with scents and herbs.
Magick and spirituality: I'm a Vodouisant, part of a traditional Haitian Vodou sosysete. I'm also interested in Tarot, herbal magic (kitchen witchery) and occult topics in general. I am a dreamer, and am blessed to often have true dreams...
Other things I like: Leather. People with an edge to them, and yet who are still kind. Hiking. Travel. Motorcycles. All kinds of music: from Tori Amos to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Bonny "Prince" Billy, to Wyclef Jean! Boots boots boots. Black clothes, though sometimes I try to branch out. Good food and drink. Gardening. Tattoos: I have a raven, a snake, a dragon, a gecko, two foxes, triple moons. Ace of Cups from the Tarot on one bicep, Ace of Swords on the other, and a stylized version of Toby, my familiar. And a veve of Papa Legba, and a dia de los muertos skull (La Catrina).
BPAL of the Day
frankincense, patchouli, vetiver, honey, evergreen and "snow" notes. Spice. Vanilla, Tea, carnation, cedar, redwood, sandalwood, nutmeg. Plum. Apple. Jasmine. Sweet scents. BPAL blends: Womb Furie. O and Dorian CTs. Black Temple Burlesque Troupe. Aged Voodoo and aged Sin. Dia de Los Muertos 04, RoadHouse, Skadi, samhain. The Masque. Honey Moon. Hod. the Great He-Goat. Pumpkin Queen (and King). Snowblind. Snow Angel. Snow Moon. Skadi. Mme. Moriarity. Chimera. Death Cap. Velvet. Obatala. Nonae Caporatina. March Hare. Litha. Mme Moriarity. St. John's Eve. I love the TAL scents for their function.
