Wandering, Sharing, Imagining, Creating
Playful wandering witch on an unending expedition
I'm a seeker, and idealist.
I am very inquisitive, always wanting to know "why", "how" and "when", trying to really understand the world.
Embracer of the absurd and nuance.
In love with all kinds of beauty and expression-visual, subtle, metaphorical.
all of our beating souls are connected.
"In our world, divide and conquer must become define and empower."-Audre Lorde

Music, Movies, and Books
I love reading, too many to list! Mental stimulation is like air. A small taste: Dostoyevsky,Kafka,Sartre,Morrison,Walker,Allende,Marquez,Atwood,Camus,Butler,Ibsen,Wilde,Galeano. And a lot of non-fiction, i mainly like to learn about the past and social relations.
Recently been devouring modern Arabic literature, mainly authors from Cairo.
Same thing with movies, love independent and world films. small taste: Lang,Lee,Godard,Fassbinder,Sembene,Waters,Truffaut, Almodovar,Fellini,Kurosawa,Pasolini,Wertmuller,poetic movies,documentaries, etc etc etc.
And also music is essential. My taste is all over the place, from R&B to techno to house to nujazz to experimental to soul. Recently rediscovered Kate Bush!

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you spanish and about astrology. I can also get into interesting conversations about a variety of topics including: art, philosophy, cultural studies, astrology, gender, race, class, sexuality, history, alternative politics and psychology.
You can hopefully teach me how to walk on stilts and juggle and maybe also tarot card reading.
