My amazing daughter was born on 11-11-09 at 1:27 AM. Lou and I are totally in love with her... she is beautiful. I'm not on tribe much these days... but have posted tons of pics on facebook if anyone is on there. I feel so intensely blessed. :)Sun, November 22, 2009 - 12:45 PM permalink - 9 comments
I have not been on tribe very much at all- life and other social networks seem to have taken over. I have gotten a few concerned messages from some of you (thank you for your thoughts) and I just wanted everyone to know that I'm kinda out of the loop due to the fact that I have been experiencing the new adventure of being pregnant! I'm 1/2 way there now (20 weeks)... due in early November and I just found out that we are having a little girl! Lou and I are so happy.Tue, June 23, 2009 - 7:21 AM permalink - 13 comments

February 28, 2008I will try to say simple things of Bronwen.
Bronwen is an incomparable friend and companion. Her appetites are similar to my own - in both frequency and intensity – and though we satisfy them in separate ways, our natures are affirmed and comforted as we gorge ourselves on all the black nectars. Though she often speaks without restraint, it is rare for those around her to take offense, because she is invested in her debauch and this liberates and comforts because her compassion is reflexive, constant, and with reckless abandon.
But Bronwen is something new to me. She is an entanglement of currents yet unmixed, and despite her open way, she’s a vortex of that which is wanted. A common snare for me are those blue eyes that dig at my skin and dizzy my brains, of which she has two. Of all things, Bronwen is elemental – she loves fire, sand, dust, and skin inherently. She is a freelance muse of a kind, whether she vends torture or release, she creates and loves the creative, feeding them with poison or grace, either way, producing Art.
Simple things escape me when I am so distracted.
October 30, 2007Bronwen....one of the sweetest, nicest and lovely chickies I know. Whenever I am near her she makes me smile and feel good about life.
I remember when I first met her and Na'la, how super awesome she was and it was love from then on.
I love you B!
November 21, 2006Browen, I felt connection and love for and from you, the instant we'd met. Thoughtful, creative, loving, down to earth, fun and a beauty that truly makes you a feast for the senses. Thank you for taking me into your chosen family.
October 17, 2006Possibly one of the most fun, sweet, and decadently sexy women I have ever known. It's hard to know whether to talk first about her amazing capacity to live life joyfully, the perfect touch of her kindness and good humor, or just her outright sexuality that could melt the clothes off a monk. I adore her from her GI- Jane- goes- porn- star look at PDF to the sweet fey hippie at Pennsic to the cranky woman with blurry eyes and wrinkled pjs that opens the door with a grudge when I drop by too early on the weekend. What can I say; you just gotta love the Lady B.
March 7, 2006hmm, my super special B. I love you so much. For those of you who have yet to spend ample time in this fabulous creatures presence I will fill you in a little on what makes Bronwen such an important part of my journey. Hmmm, she gets me. We often times share the exact same, completely ridiculous thought pattern... thank you for that sistah. It makes me feel much less neurotic ;)~She has a wonderful ability to make everyone feel welcome & loved, innate momma nature. She glows with otherwordly beauty, both inside & out. She & I have learned alot about each other as well as ourselves in this past year & for those lessons I thank you. We have had many beautiful experiences together & I happily look forward to seeing what the future will bring. To me you are all these little words personified~ loving, caring, kind, warm, luscious, compassionate, yummy, funny as hell, vixen, artist, beauty, rockinasshippygothfusiondancerdiety, yummy, fun, happy, witty, goddess, cuddlepuddleworthy_ oh yeah!!!! See I've come to find that words just don't do her justice. You just got to experience the fair Lady Bronwen to get it. Those of you who know firsthand what a jewel she is, count yourself lucky. I certainly do.
March 5, 2006I don't even know where to start when paying my gratitude to this lovely being. So I'll be cheesy and make a list of the reasons shes Rawks!
(1) She is super compassionate.
(2) She is utterly hot.
(3) She has mega-mommy powers even though shes not a mom. (biologically)
(4) She always knows what you need even if you don't.
(5) She loves wine.
(6) She has amazing powers of observation.
(7) She has amazing powers of persuasion.
(8) She is an incredible dancer. Lambent in nature with the gravity of a neutron star.
(9) She is a very talented artist.
(10) She makes me feel special.
(11) Did I mention shes hot.
Really though,Bronwen has connected with and understood me on more levels than most humans alive. I will remember our adventures together on the playa untill the day I die. Not just those though, you've always got pure, fun, energy to share with everyone, anytime we gather. Also, your one of the only people who listen to me babble about space.
Love ya B
January 26, 2006Have I ever transcended B-space?
Well... in answer, I'd like to recite a poem:
Bron. Wen. Bron and Wen.
Does not the Bron also Wen?
Nobody Wens like this Bron-Wens
You Bron. Wen.
That just about says it all, but for the poetically challenged...
Just what is B-space you ask?
Well, the answer has eleven parts, all of which I will gladly show you now.
1. B-space is a Supacosmotriptasticfabulosoliciouselectricsexkitten deity.
2. B-space extends life. B-space expands consciousness.
3. B-space can be referred to with the female pronoun "she" even though B-space transcends the mundane conventions of the mortal coil.
4. "She" may also be called "Bronwen of the Nine Kitties---three sir!---Three Kitties".
5. B-space was raised among useless yurt-toting, frisbee-chucking, cheeba monkeys. This does not diminish her power in any way.
6. B-space enjoys a good ho' cake. Everybody love ho' cake.
7. B-space is the keeper of the secret Dork, Flame of Anor.
8. B-space utilizes "helpers" to enact her plans of total world domination and subjugation. These workers are officially titled "minions", NOT "pathetic knee groveling pud wankers".
9. B-space is not to be taken with a supplement, she is a perfectly nutritious entree unto herself.
10. B-space spans time. We love her and she spans time. She looks fabulous and spans time. She is spanning time as we speak.
11. B-space is an addictive substance of the most flamboyant and extrava--A desert holiday! Let's pack the drag away. You bring the Bronblebees, I'll bring the ecstasy...
Bronwen. This one goes to 11.
July 4, 2005What can I say other than I am so grateful this wonderful group of people have become part of our lives. Oh the fair lady Bronwen with her bubbling essence & motherly like way of making everyone feel safe & welcome. Don't let her fool you though she is actually a hot, sexy temptress :) who I feel lucky to share time with. Oh yes, & she makes amazing belts that I keep wanting to wear with everything!!!
June 10, 2005Part 1 of 3 of my review of the Shakra dancers....
If I had to classify Bronwen's dancing in a single word, it would be grace. Having seen her dance on three different occasions in different milieus, her style exudes a natural grace which draws the eye in and makes one appreciate the natural beauty of the Shakra style of dance. This natural, graceful movement makes her dance seem less choreographed and more organic, coming close to bridging the gap where physical expression isn't forced and unnatural - it's very easy for her to convey to you what she is expressing through her dance. At the same time, the grace with which she moves is tempered by a humor which precludes the arrogance which sometimes accompanies prowess. This, in combination with Hilary's insouciance and Na'la's methodology of movement, finds a harmonious balance in this troop that makes for a good show to watch, regardless of where you see them.
May 16, 2005soo much FUN!! oh yeah & she dances too;)
April 20, 2005This girl is Uber HAWT!
November 1, 2004Bronwen, my bosom buddy, kindred spirt, sister in dance and my bestest friend....and did i mention crazy wild child! I LOVE THIS WOMAN! Bronwen is one of the most generous and loving people i know, and dancing with the her these last four years has brought so much happiness and joy in my life! We've been on many roads together, and gone through many different hair extensions and i can't wait to see what we will do next!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love you my 'Precious'!
ps...... 'Shakra' rules!
