You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
~Mary Oliver

I'm 43, female, Sagittarius with Taurus rising, INFP.

I work as a geologist in a state government job in Columbus, Ohio. I also have a massage therapy license, though I am currently not practicing due to my own back issues.

I bought my first home, a 130-year-old farmhouse, in May, 2005. [info]rfunk moved in with me in August, 2007. In September of 2009 we married ourselves on a Colorado mountainside.

I have three feline companions: Patches, 18; and Ki, 7; and Barney, um, maybe 14?. I lost my beloved Polybius in March, 2008.

Spirituality is a big part of my makeup...I seem to need to yearn for Union. I am a mystic at heart.

I am emotional, empathic, sincere, honest, sensuous, and feisty.
