I am a thirty-something year old witch, priestess, and homeschooling mom living in Northern Illinois with my husband and our two young children. Many LJ pagans may know me as the founder of (the now defunct) mail swap community Full Moon Swaps and I am also the creator of Nature Nurtured ( a web-resource for those seeking to nurture a magickal home life.

I like reading whenever I get the chance, traveling, attending pagan gatherings and witchcraft workshops, discovering new vegan restaurants, studying natal chart astrology, incorporating my beliefs into my day-to-day life, and hosting events and parties and meetups. :)

I journal about paganism, parenting, philanthropy, travel, and frugality. I write about the classes I take, the rituals I attend and/or lead, and the things that strike me in my day-to-day life. I am making a dedicated effort to post at least every other day.

At LiveJournal, I'm looking for true connections with like-minded people. My very best friends have come from my Friends List--I'm a true believer in the power of LJ to bring people together. I want to get to know people, what they think and what they value, and I frequently get to travel to meet my Friends List folks in person. I'm always looking for spiritual, optimistic, kind-hearted people who value personal responsibility, a positive outlook, and social justice. I like feeling involved in the lives of other people--even if that means reading their grocery lists and the results of their medical tests. :) In fact, the more the better, I think.

If you think we'd be a good fit, I hope you'll add me and leave a note to let me know you have. :)

I am... an artist, writer, new Mom and project enabler. I live in a house that I built with my husband in a birch forest in Alaska. I stay home with our 14 month-old daughter and do freelance web programming on the side, as well as fantasy illustration and writing (fiction and non-fiction).

I like... fantasy and science fiction, geek topics, journeys, healthy food that isn't health food, projects, thoughtful observation, unbridled joy, watching people grow and the outdoors. In no particular order.

I journal about... my life. I share adorable baby photos, my artwork, links to my writing, discussion about my many projects, frequent to-do lists, home improvement projects, the process of creation and the struggles of business. I do not journal politics.

At LiveJournal, I'm looking for... creative, clever, and passionate people who are on journeys that they are interested in sharing. The beauty of Livejournal over other social media is that it encourages thoughtful journaling rather than soundbites and rhetoric. I am less good at commenting than I would like to be.

I am… a singer, writer, storyteller and former interior decorator with a background in theatre, music and the arts. I live in Florida with my husband and two dogs (my two stepsons having “flown the nest”) and work for a large non-profit organization running school based and community programs for children. When I am not at work I am working on my Bachelors Degree, singing in two bands and a choir, and making hats for my Etsy shop. I am an Earth reverent, open minded Christian, and appreciate the beauty to be found in all faiths and spiritual paths (nearly all of my friends seem to be Pagan…)

I Like… writing, music, education, reading, art, yoga and meditation. I participate (against all common sense) in the National Novel Writing month challenge every November, and this year will be my fifth year of writing a fifty thousand word novel in thirty days. This involves a lot of caffeine. I like bright colors, joyous expression, boundless creativity and believing out loud.

(I do not like… Prejudice, politics, religious intolerance, anti-gay rhetoric or drama)

I Journal About… Writing (also at college, books and music, experiences, my dogs, and a thousand and one creative endeavors from hat making to painting to theatre to folk music to poetry. I journal about the creative process, various projects, thoughts and observations and friendship. I am passionate about life, and share that in my journal.

At LiveJournal I am looking for… people who share – not necessarily my interests – but who like to share their own. I like to get to know people, read about their thoughts, exchange ideas and build relationships. Some of the loveliest people in my life I met through LiveJournal! I am interested in people and their perspectives, and in reading actual journal entries (as opposed to Tweets and one liner facebook posts).

I am... a 32 year old living in the North Park neighborhood of Chicago. I’ve been married for almost four years and we have an eight and a half month old son. I work in the Loop at a financial firm where my current duties involve middle office/operations. I moved here to Chicago about ten years ago to attend Columbia College Chicago where I earned a bachelor’s degree in photography. I don’t shoot professionally, though my wife and I have an at-home portrait studio, and I shoot large format still lifes, which is the closest I get to producing art, or whatever.

I like... art history, comic books, beer, photography, industrial music, old sci-fi movies, ect. I go through cycles of obsessing over each of these interests before burning out.

I journal about... pretty much everything going on in my life, though I leave out the stuff which is clearly TMI, and I use LJ cuts for the mundane content. In addition to posting about my daily activities, occasionally I take a stab at writing about specific topics within my range of interests.

At LiveJournal, I'm looking for... good people. I’m not too concerned about finding others who share my own interests, but I am looking for like-minded individuals.
