Introduction Hello. I practice a blend of Tantric and Zen Buddhism. This doesn't mean I am always at peace. I'm human; a complex, multi-faceted woman. I say fuck. I am a foodie, treehugger, pro equal rights, pro-choice, hopeless romantic, bibliophile, a Jeopardy! addict, lover of wordplay, film, music, vinyl records, and all things organic. I have difficulty expressing my thoughts and feelings without saying the wrong thing or rambling. Tantra Flower is my nickname, given to me by a fellow Buddhist friend. I'm a beautiful, sensual blooming flower. According to my best friend, I'm a curvy zen naughty librarian hippie dork. Fine. I have a stain removal fetish. I prefer the number 3 and numbers divisible by 3. Good grammar and manners make my heart flutter. I love cupcakes, but only if they are frosted all the way to the edge. What is up with this trend of just piping a swirly glob in the center? It sucks. It gets in your nose when you take a bite, unless you pat it down, which makes your fingers sticky. This practice must cease immediately! Anyway, I'm prone go into hiding from time to time. I love everybody!!!

Favorite Books The Art of Happiness, Siddhartha, anything on the subject of Buddhism, Tantra, meditation, etc., Can't live without the Dictionary. I read non-fiction mostly. I'm especially drawn to books with historical value or filled with little known facts, biographies, always looking for another good cookbook. I do read some fiction. My favorites are Infinite Jest, Moby Dick, High Fidelity, Rum Punch, Jim Thompson novels because he creates these flawed multi-layered characters and doesn't mince words. Little Women is another favorite. I just love books.
