A note on my friending policy
For the most part my journal is public, so you arn't missing lots of juicy posts by my not having added you. I tend to only add people that have gotten to know me in real life or whome I have chatted with lots on line. Just because I havn't friended you, dosn't mean that I don't go through ocassionally and read your journal. Feel free to comment on anything you find interesting in my journal but remember it is a drama free place :)
All about the Tyger
I used to run an after school club for children aged 4 - 11. I paint modern art when I get the time or the inclination and can definatly be a bit of a culture vulture sometimes. I'm a fairly typical Gemmini in that I'm often in two minds about everything and can talk the hind legs off a donky when the mood takes me. I like going to raves and I love to dance. I do uv reactive body painting at certain club nights in the Bristol area. Mostly Tribe of Frog and Ripsnorter. (A few examples of my work can be seen in my picture gallery). I am a very good cook and can usually whip up something truly delicious out of what ever is in the cupboard.

Starting Samhain 2009

Something to consider

"On the Internet, you are composed of language. It's your choice if you wish to be deformed."

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
~Oscar Wilde

All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpritation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I am the eye with which the Universe
Beholds itself and knows itself divine;
All harmony of instrument or verse,
All prophecy, all medicine are mine,
All light of Art or Nature; to my song
Victory and praise in their own right belong.
~extract from the Hymn To Apollo, by P. B. Shelley.

Damaged people are dangerous.
They know they can survive.
~Anna Barton

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.
~Bertrand Russell

When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Inspired by Wiliam Blakes poem.

Because I think LJ's policy sucks. A picture showing a baby feeding is normal and ok even if you can see the nipple the milk comes out of *shock horror*.
