The Apollonian Hermetic Maenad

Rational romantic mystic cynical idealist

Δεν ελπίζω τίποτα. Δε φοβάμαι τίποτα. Είμαι λεύτερος.
I fear nothing. I hope for nothing. I am free.
-From the tomb of Nikos Kazantzakis.

I am a child of Earth and starry Heaven;
But my race is of Heaven. This ye know yourselves.
But I am parched with thirst and I perish. Give me quickly
The cold water flowing forth from the Lake of Memory.'
-Orphic quote

I have a public LJ for those who are not on this one: kyrene_myste

I have a blog now, but I rarely post there except to babble about my religion publicly. It's at http://kyreneariadne.blogspot.com/. I am also on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Kyrene.Ariadne.

I have strong opinions, and I'm brutally honest about them. I don't mean to offend people (and I don't enjoy it either), but it sometimes happens, as the written word doesn't carry a tone of voice. If my beliefs just from scanning my user info offend you in any way, then don't read my LJ. If you think that I meant to insult you or if I say something to offend you, please email or IM me and we'll talk about it. I'm very good (or at least try) at knowing when I've erred and making amends for it.

I'm a Hellenist since May '97, a vegan since Feb '06, and a mystic nearly my whole life. :)
