Greetings and Salutations

Post by The Wrong Alice » Wed Jul 11, 2012 3:15 am

I should drop in and introduce myself, so I shall.

My name is Alice (but that was taken) and I would call myself, among many other things, a poisoner.

First and foremost, I am Other. I will not be made to fit into a little box. While I use understandable terms to describe some of my attributes, I refuse to be quantified or qualified. I am a unique living being. Whatever I am, I am (blank) in name only, simply because it would be confusing and laborious to explain for instance the ways in which the word "Neo-Hellenist" isn't quite accurate. When I am given a form requesting my race, gender, religion, or most other supposedly multiple choice descriptors, I mark that little box that says "other".

I am a Neo-Hellenist and priestess of Hecate... Sort of. My goddess of choice is heavily connected to entheogens and poisons, her sacred plants being things like Datura, Belladonna, Henbane and Hellebore.

I am far from a master of the poison path. At best I am proficient. Mostly I am here to learn and improve upon my art, though I hope that in some small way I can enrich the paths of others.

Obviously there's a lot more to know about me, and these are not the most important things about me. Not by a long shot, but they're the things most relevant to this board. If anyone would like to know anything else, feel free to ask.

May you find what you seek,
Alice

Hello and Welcome . .. centered usually means good. It means you know where you are coming from and where you are going to. At peace with yourself. but that's just my opinion . .. relaxing will have to speak for what he means

Ah well I like that version of centered. I hope that's me, thanks.

For me .. peace, health, enlightenment, learning

and children that behave themselves and a wife who loves me .. but I know that those I'll never have, that's why I work on the others.

Peace I have more of than most, and for that I am grateful. Health I have more of than some, but less than most, but it means more that I am able to cope and nothing slows me down. Enlightenment I have sought all my life, and I found a little. Learning will never stop, and if it does, I will consider it a failure as a human being.

A loving mate or two I have. Children I have none, yet anyway. If ever, they'll be adopted. Cannot have my own.

May you find what you seek,
Alice

This is the only place I feel I can post this without sounding like I'm advertising, which is not what I mean to do; it's just a topic relevant thing that I'm doing.

I am posting my personal herbal, unedited, on my website. I am adding to it progressively, and as I learn more and have more to add. Unfortunately, it's in several hand written parts, so building the online version is a long process.

Here is the LINK

Typically we only allow posts linking to stores in the Vendors forum. However, I will let this one stand for now, as the site seems to be mostly focused on the newsletter and the blog.
