About meI am some what of a obsessive-compulsive philosopher living in the Capitol Region of New York State, USA with one roomate and lover.

I am a passionate reader, avid artist, wanna-be piano player, and am involved with many diverse and random things. Most days you would find me either writing in my journal, sketching or talking insistently to myself, with a cup of tea steaming somewhere nearby.

I began learning about and practicing the craft since my early childhood. I taught myself through the religious philosophies of the world, and delved into the world of ancient languages by the time I was ten. It turns out that I was only trying to discover my roots, and discovered the very reason for my interest in such esoteric things. As I have progressed, the more I find my own spiritual peace, which is all I ask to accomplish in this life. I connect with the divine through nature, whether it is in the family forest, swimming in the lake, walking barefoot through grass, listening to the morning birds sing, bathing in sunlight, writing poetry, sketching, honoring the seasons or by just thinking about the world. All in all, I am still seeking the divine within myself.

About my librarythey are so much more than mere books, they are pages of MY LIFE.
