Music, Movies, and Books

I love to read. I've mostly read theory lately as I'm working on my Master's but I also love fiction. Some favorite non-fiction books: The Golden Bough, Landscape and Memory, The World Without Us, Surrealism and the Sacred, On the Grotesque, Animate Earth, The Secret Life of Plants, The Sacred and the Profane. Some favorite fiction writers: Kurt Vonnegut, JD Salinger, Philip K. Dick, Charles Dickens, Tom Robbins, C.S. Lewis, Margaret Atwood, William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, J.R.R. Tolkien, Mikhail Bulgakov. I really love southern gothic, magic realism, and English gothic and romantic literature.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach art, drawing is my favorite thing to do and I'd love to share that with everyone. I've also been studying Tarot and semiotics in general. I'd like to learn to cook better and how to make a sapling fence.
