About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation creative conspirator / CXO(XO) of Auspicious Projects
Location Boulder, CO, United States
Introduction Fascinated by the movement of desire through Myth, literature, lyrics, religions, history, and shared experience -- and loving any good love story that arrests the heart and warrants a good sized cry towel -- I am a hopeless romantic at heart. But also a heady academic with a penchant for the feminine divine, who is rooted in a darling body wrought with emotions and feelings and perceptions of the vast and interpersonal relationships of the world, and effervescently intrigued by the dissolution of the fuzzy boundaries of self and other.

Interests "I see a more feminine world, a world where feminine values will be validated, the same as masculine values are. A more integrated world. I see that in the future, things that we have lost in the past will be recovered. There's a search for those things, a search for spirituality, for nature, for the goddess religions, for family and human bonding. All that has been lost in this industrial era. People are in desperate need of those things. I don't think the world will destroy itself in a nuclear cataclysm. On the contrary, we have the capacity to save ourselves and save the planet, and we will use it." - Isabel Allende

Sponges and tongues are frequently misspelled. Is it because both are thirsty?

It's b/c they are moist words, and wetness / water bears the waves of creation -- plus they are sensuous words that bring forth the image of eating mangoes in the shower, and absorbing and tasting into one another until there's nothing left... so essentially, those would be freudian typos / misspellings.
