"νῦν αὖτε μέγα κρατέεις νεκύεσσιν ἐνθάδ᾽ ἐών..."


Leonora Carrington, Along the needle of my heart

My tastes are catholic rebellious, can alchemise the world into another strangeness more than clocks are riddled into or can dream on sensibilities of the uncanny. I am another animal drawn away by magic from tremors in the night into our intellectual powers not sexual but tribal, ancient, plumbago, ivy, sacred as hyenas of the fertile night or horses rocking into rebirth beyond the looking glass reflects reality more than the real; arcane, hermetic can be the everyday of cooking, living, knitting themselves into myths unravelling like tales of fairies seen by childish eyes of great age that close themselves to the imaged world that made me blind to busybodies, took my precious loneliness from me to see and see and lead me here along the needle in my heart with its clear thread of old blood and danger never lost to be only myself.
