Name:rowan_golightly
Birthdate:Aug 12
Location:Kansas, United States of America
I am a life-long seeker; a Midwesterner at heart and a Yankee by birth and inclination. I'm a lover, priestess, warrior, performer, musician, singer, lover, artist, healer, friend, witch, cook, and energy worker. I'm strong and I'm a survivor; gods know, I've proven that often enough. I'm a double preachers' kid which explains quite a bit.

I've performed at Renaissance Festivals more than half my life and that has formed who I am more than any other single thing. Performing at faires is what started me to being a professional costumer and seamstress, transforming that hobby into the career it has been for about 25 years now.

I'm committed to living right out loud and with intention. I'm normally loving and happy and positive but I also have a temper and I can bite with very little warning. I am a Leo afterall, with Aquarius Moon and Scorpio Rising. I'm candid and open and try very hard to say exactly what I mean; you want an opinion, be prepared for it to be an honest one. I have no patience for liars or control freaks; for those who are closed-minded, narcissistic or arrogant; those who wallow or those who deceive, manipulate or play head games. DO NOT tell me what you think I want to here; I want the complete truth every time. Other than that, I'm Mary-fucking-Poppins most of the time...a menopausal Mary Poppins which should scare some folk.

When I was figuring out who I wanted to be when I grew up, at about 40, none of this info was available. Individuals are either poly or not, period. Poly-amory is not for MOST folk, even some of those who practice it, and I don't proselytize, but rather attempt to educate. I wish everyone to have a healthy relationship, no matter what shape it might take. Knowledge is good; self-knowledge is better. Here's some wonderful info for anyone who is in a relationship of any kind, even (especially!) just with themselves! These are the best poly web-sites I've found, to which I refer everyone who has questions:
http://www.xeromag.com/fvpoly.html
http://www.practicalpolyamory.com/
http://polyweekly.com/
Also, read "The Ethical Slut" and "Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Sex"...two life-changing books for me.

I'm a determinedly happy and forward-looking, intelligent and creative woman. I also don't like down like a rug to be walked upon. I'll probably let people hurt me sooner than those I love. Nobody screws with or betrays me or my friends more than once. You really don't want a menopausal red-headed Leo on the rampage directed at your ass do you? I'll answer that for you; no, you don't. Ok, now I'll go back to being fucking Mary Poppins again. Have a nice day!
