Hello! I am a mestizx, gender non conforming, brujx. I grew up loving the ocean swimming out into the horizon, climbing trees and riding bikes. Now at 34 im doing the same and looking for others to join me in different cities/countries.
"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."
-Audre Lorde
“When we drop fear, we can draw nearer to people, we can draw nearer to the earth, we can draw nearer to all the heavenly creatures that surround us.”
― Bell Hooks
