I am a 51 year old woman. I am a mother, a grandmother, a sister, daughter. I am wise and naive, thoughtful and foolish, analytical and intuitive. I have been a wife, a widow and a partner.
I am a writer, and an artist having earned my living by my creativity for most of my adult life. My current focus is body art in the form of custom permanent tattoo and found object/mixed media mosaic and sculpture.
I am a feminist, a humanist, an environmentalist; a witch and a femme lesbian. I am a crone before my time, having passed my moontides for some years now and having survived too many of those I love, including my soulmale and one true husband, Jerry, gone too soon at 45, in January of 1998 and my precious baby grandson, Bishop Alexander, who passed from this world after too short a stay on October 18, 2007.
I am a recovering alcoholic and addict of 24+ years of sobriety. I have clinical depression, PTSD and panic syndrome which are treated and manageable. I have fibromyalgia which is managed by diet, meditation and self awareness. I am struggling with acceptance of the term “disabled” as it applies to me.
I am a free thinker, I question authority, am an embarrassed conspiracy theorist, and a pretty far left activist.
