this is probably as close as you'll get to me posting a real picture of
myself. My husband took this photo of me one Christmas
the artist in me couldn't leave it alone.
have enjoyed drawing, singing and dancing since I was a small
was always combined with a healthy imagination and belief in miracles,
angels and unseen beings. Although I was raised Baptist I have
believed in the exclusivity of Spirit to any one tradition...it is kind
of like art...rather a subjective thing...different traditions and
suit various personalities. I guess I'm rather cosmopolitan in my
beliefs about Spirit and my personal experiences have supported my
attitudes. I do personally enjoy the Western Spiritual Tradition
and kabbalah as a personal practice...but I certainly don't believe it
is the only chocolate chip cookie recipe...just the one that works for
me. Anyway that is the philosophy that birthed this site.
a personal note, I am happily married
to a wonderful Virgo accountant (I'm
a Gemini) and I have a lovely daughter (but I raised 7 kids) and a
granddaughter. I lived in the beautiful
redwoods of California and
now live in the beautiful mountains of North Western Carolina. I
like entertaining, Victorian
decorations, gaudy earrings, lox-bagels-cream cheese, chocolate,
de Lint books, pink roses, candle light, fog, satin sheets, feathered
The Highlander, rainbows, kissing and many, many more things, feelings,
activities, experiences. Besides running Crystal Cloud Graphics I run
international metaphysical school that specializes in the Western
especially kabbalah, called the School
of Spiritual Integrity. I was also a Girl Scout Leader for Troop 1058 and of
other troops for over thirty years. I am the founder of Elysium Gates a lovely place to
