The Small Is Beautiful Manifesto

I'm on a mission from the Goddess to take Hedonism to a Higher Level...

Vying for the Title of "Anais Nin of LJ".
(it's either that, or "unacknowledged bastard adopted step-child of William S. Burroughs")

The Earth is my Church, my Body is the Altar.

June 9, 2008, I moved to Albquerque, New Mexico!
August 9, 2007, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona, after residing in Atlanta, Georgia since 1983.

I'm a Blue Blood Texan and I was awarded a Key to the City of New Orleans.

New Tattoo!
New Tattoo!

"Healer's Mark"
My newest tattoo, by Muriel of Zao Tattoo - my 10th tat.
I got the inner audible message that I was to have a "Healer's Mark" - although I've been a professional massage therapist and intuitive energy worker since 1987, I really declined using the word "Healer" to describe myself.
I looked all over, asked and asked, and could not find a "Healer's Mark" per se.
Then, about 2 months later, in meditation, without asking, I "got" the visual in a flash. I also "knew" exactly where I was to have the tattoo on my body, and that I was to have a female tattoo artist do it. I got up immediately and sketched out what I saw.
I am so grateful to have this powerful personal mark on my body, and am standing in the positive unfoldment of the next part of my journey...

SRVnME at JazzFest 1990 - RIP Stevie Ray - October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990

Me and Stevie Ray, backstage at JazzFest, 1990, the year of his death.

"I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood. That the speaking profits me, beyond any other effect." - Audre Lorde

"When you come to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen. Either there will be something solid for you to stand on -- or you will be taught how to fly."
- Patrick Overton

I may be considered an activist - I am a birth activist, as a doula and massage therapist. I am a human rights activist, as a human being. I am a human sexuality activist and champion for change in the realm of gender and sexual identity freedom. And I am a Love Activist, first and foremost.

I've got brass, class, and a whole lot of sass.

Glitter runs in my veins.

I want my headstone to say, "Dance Here!"

WARNING: I post a lot. Too much. I will clog up your Flist.

I post a lot of photos. I post a lot of original content. And I just really post a LOT. I seldom LJ cut. I am grateful that LJ does not charge by the foot.
Don't say you weren't warned!!!
