About

Affirming Anglo-Catholic, queer, contemplative, feminist, polyamorous, anti-racist, card-carrying Democratic Socialist, Jesus Freak. I like thinking. And knitting. And drinking so much coffee I vibrate out of my skin.

I do occasionally swear.

I plan to take the pilgrimage road of El Camino de Santiago de Compostela from Le Puy-en-Velay in France, either in fall of 2012 or 2013.

“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
