Recipes, Rants, and the Ridiculous

6 August
I'm a 45 year old writer and married to caelum_rainieri. We live in a very modest house on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. We have no kids, but have 2 cats, 3 dogs (2 wolf hybrids & a pit bull), scorpions, a Chinese Water Dragon, and Koi.

I spent 14 years teaching elementary school because I love kids. I retired and recently my husband and I've been published in various Astrology and Pagan magazines. We also had our oracle and book published by Inner Traditions. We're really proud of it, even if it didn't make much $$$. We also have another book coming out in the next 1 1/2 - 2 years or so, but honestly, I lead a happily quiet life, we volunteer for children's and animal's rights foundations and contribute $$$ to most of them as well.

I aspire to further be published in the genres of erotic horror and children's literature someday. Our LJ Pagan Community is tribalpaganism Our oracle is Nahualli Animal Oracle and can be seen here, and we also wrote The Occult Author's Market. My husband's second book just came out and I'm working on my first a children's story.

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”

~Anais Nin~

And the wand-like lily which lifted up,
As a Maenad, its moonlight-coloured cup,
Till the fiery star, which is its eye,
Gazed through clear dew on the tender sky.…

A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
