Introduction

It's the dawn of a new era, a season for change, a climate of hope. Not only have we elected the first African American to the US Presidency, but I've also decided to start a blog for my random psychological wanderings! That's right folks, there is now a forum to explore the complicated, sometimes delusional meanderings of my mind. Are you worried yet? I sure am!

I hope to use this blog as a forum for discussion, a space for challenging political and social institutions, and a vehicle to use my voice in a world where I am too often kept quiet due to the potential implications such an outcry would have on my financial well being. (Or, in laymen's terms, a space to rant away without repercussions at work!) 

What type of Bohemian am I? I'm the sort of person who adores the color black and would prefer to wear at least something black every day. Even if it's just cat fur from my oldest "child" - a feline friend who lives with me currently. I am a feminist that believes in true equality for all people - not increasing the amount of prejudice and discrimination, but through truly eradicating the various "isms" that suffocate our world today. I am an advocate and an activist - I cannot sit still and watch injustices happen around me. Ever since I can remember, I've been the girl that asks a thousand questions and refuses to take "because I said so" as a valid answer. I'm also an out pagan and gladly engage in spiritual conversations with people from all faiths. Lastly, I'm the type of bohemian that is applying for a PhD for Women's Studies or Sociology because I want to do more. 

I'll close with a favorite quote that comes to us from the Goddess: If that which you seek you find not within yourself, you will never find it from without.
