About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Wandering, Sharing, Imagining, Creating

ABOUT ME

Playful wandering witch on an unending expedition

Cay lady

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.

PHILOSOPHY

all of our beating souls are connected.

"In our world, divide and conquer must become define and empower."-Audre Lorde

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.
