How do I summarize that which makes up my whole being in a few short paragraphs? I have never felt a particularly strong need for labels, since I am, and can only be, myself. Still, introductions are awfully tricky to write without them, and there are a few of which that I do not mind attaching myself to.

I am a wanderer. I grew up moving every few years and this desire has never truly left me even as I have moved into motherhood. Across social media you can find my family and I by the name we have settled on for our lifestyle, Becoming Wanderers. Even when we are in one place though, as we were before we traded in our home for a 29' tow behind and truck, we have always itched to get out and experience all that the world has to offer.

I am an artist and creator. There is something that dwells deep in me and calls out to be allowed to learn new skills and create with them. If I do not indulge this part of me I become a very cranky person indeed. I am pulled to do ink work with intuitive mandala-like designs, but also many other small and large projects from carved and inlaid runes to knitting and much more.

I am a mother of two beautiful beings of light. Parenthood is the most important, challenging and rewarding job in my life. My eldest came into this world in June 2008, and my second followed in November 2009. They have their unique and incredibly distinct personalities, which are definitely full of quite a bit of nurtured geekiness.

I am a witch and I reclaim this term in dedication to my goddesses. It is my deepest spiritual belief that we are so very fortunate to live on this tiny precious blue dot lost among the vast cosmos, and it is my obligation to live my life in a socially conscious way. The Earth is currently the human race’s only home and it is our duty to take care for her to the full extent of our abilities.

Beyond the labeling though, I just try to passionately be myself. I love the sunrise and set, the passing of the moon and stars, the warmth of a loved one’s embrace, the flowing of the rivers and tides, the ever-changing aspects of nature, the facets of my inner dragon, and the simple joys that life has to offer. Thus far my life has been quite the journey, and I know there is much more discovery to come.

My cider budget! A bit of a spur for me to set aside my introversion and start a monthly livestream. Maybe with some on the spot rune readings for anyone who joins and lots of chatting about all the topics that interest you and me.
