What is this? A self-improvement blog?  A recovery blog? A witchy conjure blog? A Nerd blog?


Spring 2016 Oklahoma

Sometimes, all of the above; other times none of the above. It largely depends on my mood, what comes to mind, and what made me snarky or what brings me joy on any given day. Because I have a tendency to live as an eccentric recluse and end up in my own little bubble a little too long, this blog serves as a repository for essays, writings, thoughts, observations and adventures.

Topics you’re likely to encounter here are recovery from booze and drugs, mental illness, my past, healing, creativity, art, music, spirituality and magic, pet rescue and whatever else pops up.

A SoCal ex-pat badass transplant, I lived in Central Virginia for over 20 years and transplanted again to Central Oklahoma in 2016. I still say things like, “So”, “Yeah”, “Dude”, “Gnarly” and “Hella”. I still giggle at complaints about “traffic” and miss Tommy’s and In & Out Burger.

I genuinely want to make the world a better place. I practice kindness and honesty. I I am not afraid of the truth. I am loyal, adventurous and surprising. Sometimes even amazing. I make a lot of mistakes. I own them and I learn from them. I swear frequently, copiously when I’m feeling stabbie.

Currently, I share my life with a wonderful man, an English Bulldog, and a cat of questionable origins.I am lucky enough to have a handful of modest but amazing group of creative spirits I am fortunate enough to call my friends. I admire them all for many things but above all for making me laugh every day.

I believe strongly in: DIY, self-determination, empowerment and advocacy, self-employment, creative dreams and doing what you love, and living life instead of just surviving it.

You know, I started all of this for 3 reasons. The first being a place to share snark and joy- somewhere I can freely stomp around in my rantipants and spew whatever I wish without worrying that, someone I’m talking about will see it and throw a ginormous hissy fit. Fuck that. No one needs that. Especially me.

The second reason is so that there can be cursing, swearing, truth telling, encouragement, inspiration or just to say Hi. I don’t want anyone reading or commenting to have to worry that some decrepit, asshole auntie is going to give you shit at the next family reunion because you used the word “fuck” on the Internet. And it is my hope you’ll comment and tell me what’s on your mind when you want to.

The third, to simply showcase my passions, loves, and work in one central location on the Web.

There will be ranting, rambling, snark, sarcasm and probably, positive stuff, about what it’s like to be in my Birkenstocks because I’m an epic failure at long term pessimism. You’ll find my writings, visual art, services, resumes and histories.

I encourage, value, and welcome feedback, comments, thoughts and opinions. If I’ve invited you here, it’s because I value you and what you have to say. If you have stumbled across this site poking at the Internet, I welcome you to stay, even comment if you like.

This is my niche on the Interwebz to record, observe, share, and question. One thing it  will never be is untrue, either in facts or to myself.
