First of all let me just say that the photography alone is worth a critique. Let me cut to the chase. What is so impacting here is the ...

Merry Meet lovelies, I am a Wiccan/Pagan and am not one to judge.
I respect and love nature. I am a caring but shy person.
I slip into apathy but it comes and goes, you've been warned.
I try to be a good person, and I try to promote fairness.
I am not one for judgement.
I have my faults and sides, “Everybody's got a dark side,
nobody's a picture perfect but we're worth it”-Kelly Clarkson Dark Side


I am but a mysterious soul traversing the physical plane of reality
on the beautiful Earth. The Earth is my temple
and I her willing caretaker and witch.

Get your own fairy name from the fairy name generator!

My fairy name is Ash Yewsplatter

He casts spells of enchantment.
He lives in forests of oak and ash trees.
He can only be seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
He wears autumnal leaf colours and has russet-coloured wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.

Your fairy name is Singer Icestaff

He protects the vulnerable and brings justice to the wronged.
He lives in church yards and places of the dead.

You got Esmeralda from 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'!

You are fearless and streetwise, but that doesn't mean you don't have a heart of gold deep down.
You are able to look beyond physical appearances when it comes to choosing people you care for,
which is a trait not many posess.

You are the heroine of you own story and
always make sure to take care of people less fortunate than you,
it's what makes you so hard to resist.

I am so sorry everyone. I know I'm often closed off and down right MIA but I've been going through a lot lately and I just want to come clean. To be fair to you all on here who at times remind me to get out of bed in the morning. I've dealt with a lot of ups and downs the past three years. Some shocking, some emotional and spiritual, and some just plain abhorrent events in my life are things I've faced. But the main one is isolation and loneliness.

I have a problem. I am not... the kind of person who is always able to feel, communicate, or even accept someone's love and care. Part of it is fear. I never did have friends and my family... Well, they act more like givers of a surname than family. I am sorry I rarely talk to you all. Part of that is how I am and how I always hide when I'm depressed. You may be thinking given how much I hide, "Does this mean you are always depressed?" Yes at times. I've been hiding it for years. I had to remove myself from life to take care of other situations like my education else I'd be overwhelmed.

And just to get a little more personal I cried myself to sleep last night. It's a downer isn't it? Feeling alone, hopeless, defeated, and confused. Being a young, confused person and homosexual wanting love who's never dated or had friends is tough. But recently either by epiphany or The Gods I let myself talk to a person I haven't been fair to. I am still accepting myself without success. I'm scared, I'm afraid, I'm not one who is even sure they can feel love or emotion. Just telling it like it is a lot more of how I act is a mask to hide his I feel. I joke to cover it and laugh to keep others from feeling so down.

I may be empathetic but I am sometimes apathetic. I cry about not fitting into boxes, about being unsure if I am man or woman, gay or asexual, aromatic or love sick. And yes I am Pagan and yes I am a witch, and yes I am NOT cisgender! But you know what? I'm tired. I don't want to be closed forever and feel lonely when alone or around others. My family may not accept me. Some of you may not but I going to live for me.

I'm going to be me. I'm going to be "they" not he or even she although girl I can be sassy and sweeter than candy. I make no apologies about being a sarcastic bitch. Honey it helps me cope if I can laugh.

This was to say sorry for keeping you in the dark. Not sorry for being raw or real. You may notice a name change in the future. Valentine. Before you snicker hear me and history. Valentine from the Latin Valentinus meaning strength, health, courage, and for those who rise. How beautiful is that? A name for those who are strong and it knows no gender like me. Laugh. If you do please leave. If I wanted a bad audience or cheap reception I could go my local pub.

I am me and I am sorry to keep it hidden.
But I'm gonna change all of that and live for me. Blessed be. Thanks for reading.
