Would it be suffice to say that women are allowed to be hot stick figures, but for a man its not ok
32 year old pescaterian on disability, for clinical depression.
I'm a student of holistic health, spirituality and sacred sex.
Not currently enrolled anywhere
It's been one heck of a journey trying to find the right roommate, for five long years now.
I'm pretty sure I enjoyed my mid 20s (in terms of having decent living situations) but finding others to really get along with has been rough.
I know what you are thinking. Damn, you can manipulate the system. How can I do that? That's how I used to think. Situations change.
I've been surving one crazy maker after the next- not to say I don't enjoy the emotional abuse. Shit, you help me get my check each month. Why should I complain?
Looking for a room and houseshare/apt share. I rarely/never drink or smoke. I enjoy classical music, goth, industrial and sound healing/meditation music.
Could someone tell me at least if things are improving, for the LGBT community? Is there ever going to be anyone with an eco-friendly vibe that has struggled enough themselves to know what this feels like?
Or is this all...You get a free ride, so you have no right to a social life anymore? Because that's all that has happened. I've worked for the gay community in major metropolitan areas. I'm so sorry, but we don't all listen to Lady Gaga.

Not Fey Related....
But I hope the moderator(s) will allow me to share this post...
If y'all know me, you know I'm a big-time
sucker for animals.
So is my friend Bernie, who runs a no-kill animal shelter back home in Tn...this woman BUSTS HER ASS
on a daily basis, rescuing hundreds of dogs each year. (yes, she lives near Short Mt)
Animals that have been abused, neglected, and simply just forgotten and abandoned...those of you with pets know how expensive only one or two can be....imagine the costs for HUNDREDS
Stop by her blog, and see about the current dollar for dollar match going on for donations right now...even a few dollars helps, especially when it's matched and doubled! Don't worry about buying me that oh-so-cool thingamabob you were going to get me for the holidaze...give the money to Bernie instead!
Yes, times are hard right now, but like I said...every little bit helps...and while we humans may have it hard, economically, at least we don't have to worry about being "humanely
(and yes, I can vouche for this, as she's someone I've known personally for years)
And even better...please pass this information along! We all operate in overlapping and different circles..but I have a hunch that there are animal overs in each of those circles. Call me crazy.

A Very Proud Pagan Speaks On Paganism
I do get tired of folks coming to our door, stopping me in the street or sitting next to me on an empty bus,, to give me the not-so-good news of Christians. I have no problem with Jesus Christ. He was a great magician and his example was great. Perhaps if the majority of Christians behaved as he did, I would have more patience. What really gets me is when I tell them I am a Pagan and they either shout obscenities at me or begin to quote chapter and verse, which I sometimes have to correct them on because this is one Pagan who knows a little more about the bible than certain Vangies might wish.

Quentin Crisp, A Rare Documentary
FROM AFTER THE DOCUMENTARIES WERE MADE. FOR QUENTIN CRISP LIFE DID NOT REALLY BEGIN UNTIL AFTER HIS 70's. HE DIED AT THE AGE OF 90. He should be something of a RadFae saint.
Quentin Crisp was my friend for 20 years. I loved him very much. His birthday and my conception date were the same, December 25th and I used to go down, as often as possible, either from Boston or RI, once from San Diego to spend that day with him.
We talked a lot on the phone over those years. He was never dull.
I encourage one and all to check him out, be it on You Tube or in his book The Naked Civil Servant, or here for a very rare documentary.
Our friendship began about 5 years after this documentary was made, once he had achieved notoriety. He became less somber and serious, blossoming into a very magickal creature. Life began for him at 70.
The Faery King
Here is the documentary
QUENTIN CRISP - The First Documentary PART ONE (1970)
QUENTIN CRISP - The First Documentary PART TWO (1970)
QUENTIN CRISP - The First Documentary PART THREE (1970)

My personal background is that I'm interested in finding out more about the faeries, but haven't been able to make any gatherings or anything yet (I don't drive, and we don't really have 'em around here).
My reason for updating a "watch" of this community to a "join" is that I'm currently working on a paper tracing the use of the word "Faery" as people self-identify today, back through slur, and eventually back to the original lore, and looking at how those meanings may or may not intercept. Acknowledging the deliberate vagueness of any kind of definition of "faery", I was hoping to get some feedback from several individuals who self-identify as faeries, and maybe have more firsthand experience with other faeries than I personally have access to.
If you'd like to participate, the informal survey can be found here
, or ( Under the cut, if you'd rather not email meCollapse )
Thanks very much for any help you can give me.

Ecstatic Adoration (The Handfasting Poem)
It is the love of ecstatic adoration,
That I have found in you,
Angelic smile, deep and true,
Speaking through your drums,
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Finding my way Home,
Through the heart of you,
Bliss and the sublime intertwined,
The warmth of who you are, Divine,
Your eyes are manna,
Your words heavens wine,
Most respected and beloved friend of mine,
You are a treasure to me, such a find,
May I always feel the love you shine,
As in wonder, my thoughts,
Fathom your brilliant mind,
You of another place, touch so kind,
Star Child of the universe,
Gift of the Gods,
From distance and Indigo space,
Friend to humanity, the human race
With you the pain subsides,
Though my sight leaves me,
Holding your hand,
Third Eye Will Always See For We,
In walking with you, my spirit never weary,
The darkest of days rarely dreary,
With you there is an absence of fearing,
With us now joined in that forrest clearing...
The Faery King
'A friend is someone who reaches for your hand
and touches your heart.'

Elegy For The Anti_Christ
Earlier today, in New York City, an older gentleman walked into the main room of the deli full of people, grabbing a late lunch, the same time as the Faery King.
Cynthia and I accompanied my sister Susan for her Chemo today. This was a very difficult day in her recovery because of stomach distress, the under prescribing of meds and fever.
As Susan is one very tough lady, one very tough and loving Alpha female, a self-made woman, a biker poet of the kind, who can make one dream of free and open roads, metaphorically and other wise.
It is quite painful watching her battle Hodgkin's Disease and being humbled by anything, to be perfectly honest.
Apparently from the reaction in the Deli, to my reaction, (wink-although we all do grieve differently) it was very quiet for other reasons than that news flash, as it would turn out that this was the first many of us was hearing the news of his being as dead as a puppet.
The thoughtful elderly man made the comment about how sad it was that they had found Falwell dead on the floor, all alone like they did, going on about how he had touched so many lives. ( Read moreCollapse )

I am so jealous of all you lucky faeries at Short Mountain! I am once again not coming. Maybe one day... Usually, we do something here in D.C.; a public maypole dance to remind the city that we are here, a bonfire in my backyard, maybe a movie night at someone's house. We just had movie night at Fritter's a few hours ago. But, I couldn't have gone anyway because of finals due this weekend and a phone interview on Monday. Darn! But I send a shout out to you all. Have fun for all of us! Tell Puppy that we said hello! YoooooooHoooooooo!
