Quote(s) of the moment:

"I'm allergic to dogma. I thrive on riddles. Any idea I believe, I reserve the right to disbelieve as well."

-- Rob Brezsny

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

-- Herm Albright

"I hate blogs. Blogs are for angry people who are sitting at their computer with a glass of wine at midnight with nothing better to do."

-- Clients From Hell

The Basics:

Web developer. Writer (of a more creative sort) & artist when I have time, which isn't often enough. Longtime pagan/occultist (>30 years); preferred paradigms include Wicca, Celtic paganism, chaos magic, Otherworld exploration, spiritual therianthropy, and fairy lore of the non-cute kind.

Somewhere between lesbian and bisexual; neutral on the polyamory/monogamy spectrum. Currently single. Non-bio, non-custodial mother of a delightful but challenging junior mad scientist.

Grad school dropout but still academically minded, and have been known to read books on postmodernism and quantum physics for fun. Prone to daydreaming, distraction and questioning authority and tradition. Musical/aesthetic tastes highly eclectic, ranging from old-school gothic rock to folk metal to Bollywood soundtracks, but not including much in the way of mainstream pop. Shamelessly enjoy role-playing games (including LARP) and other age-inappropriate pursuits. Reside in Toronto with one cat and one snake... and missing my dear departed dog and other cat.

Add me to your friends list if you want, but I might not add you back -- my list is almost too long to keep up with already, and I rarely add anyone who I don't know in person.

Current aspirations:

Find new job. Get all my stuff properly unpacked and organized and make my apartment as livable as possible eve though it's the size of a shoebox. Try to be a good mother to the Lynxcub. Try and implement Getting Things Done, or otherwise get my act together on the organizational/productivity front. Finish the work I need to do to get my Odyssean second degree. Address creativity craving by starting book and paper arts equivalent of a Stitch'n'Bitch, writing more fiction, and/or joining a maker space and making cool things. Rethink problematic aspects of my novel-in-progress, rewrite where necessary, and get the damn thing finished. Get back on the exercise bandwagon. Find more time for spiritual stuff. Finish converting Wild Ideas, WCC and Wolf Moon web sites to Drupal. More lynx time. Go back to grad school and finish my MES. Win the lottery. Get more sleep.

Aspirations previously listed above, but now accomplished:

Have been up and down on the eating healthy and exercising thing... Started to write fiction on an almost-semi-regular basis, then slacked off, now trying to get started again. Did write over 100,000 words of a novel before getting stuck and wanting to rethink some aspects of it. Have removed a bunch of the older accomplishments from here because things done 10 years ago or so don't seem terribly significant any more... But there aren't as many newer ones to replace them with. Work and parenting have been eating my life.

If wishes were horses...
