Catechism for a Witch's Child
When they ask to see your gods
your book of prayers
show them lines
drawn delicately with veins
on the underside of a bird's wing
tell them you believe
in giant sycamores mottled
and stark against a winter sky
and in nights so frozen
stars crack open spilling
streams of molten ice to earth
and tell them how you drink
a holy wine of honeysuckle
on a warm spring day
and of the softness
of your mother who never taught you
death was life's reward
but who believed in the earth
and the sun
and a million, million light years
of being

Hail Friend and Well Met Stranger.

... and what would you like to know?
would you like to hear about my dreams? my fears?
would you like to know who I trust? who I admire? and who I humour?

or perhaps you'd simply like to know what kind of ice cream I prefer?

True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked.
Erich Segal

I believe in having adventures & trying new things.
I believe in truth, choice, freedom, & equality.
I believe in peace & in fighting for what we believe in.
I believe pizza is the perfect food.

When in doubt buy me a coffee or a glass of wine. seriously! do it now!

I love to read, to laugh, and to dance.
I love animals and nature probably more than I like people
I love art, photography, and music.
I hate shopping - but I can't walk past a book store (used books- even better!) or a shoe store.
I hate whipped cream, olives, lima beans, beets, and...and jello
I do NOT watch television.
I do not consider myself outspoken, I just say what I think...

Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change. A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)

Makes sense to me...
