As a practicing and learning druid, I have always been interested in the deeper spirituality of all theologies.
About Myself and My interests
I am working on becoming a priestess in a Druid coven. I love reading and writing, teaching, crocheting, knitting, and supporting animal rights, especially working to ban breed specific legislation against larger 'bully' breed dogs. I have a Siamese cat, who is my dearest love, and my pup, an English Mastiff, who is very special to my heart. My husband and I have been together for over 25 years, though married only 13.
My Teachers and Influences
My parents were some of the biggest influences for me. They taught me to question everything, find what makes me feel complete, and keep learning and growing. Other than that, I have to say I learn every day from my friends and family, and they have been special influences in my ideas.
I am getting closer to becoming a priestess, but I would have to say my primary goal is to help those who want to learn alternative philosophies and realize that they are all part of the big picture.
Authors and/or Books I appreciate
I love books from Piers Anthony, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and any books on mythologies and cultures of ancient lands. I have a love for anthropology and theology, and lately, I have been researching the pagan roots of Christianity, reading anything I can about it.
Music I appreciate
I listen to anything from Bach to Dethklok. It truly depends on what mood I am in. I love rock, punk, new age, and metal, but when I am in the mood, I love Vivaldi, Dvorak, and Chopin. Liquid Mind is one of my favorite new age music, and I am developing a greater appreciation for guitars.
Movies and TV shows I appreciate
The Wizard of Oz is my all-time favorite movie. Almost any Disney classic movie has my heart, and I love sci fi/fantasy/action movies. Thrillers that don't have to use blood and gore to tell a story also capture my mind. I am addicted to NCIS and Supernatural on the television, along with Metalocalypse and Squidbillies.
