I'm a Scorpio with Scorpio rising, born in Hollywood, California -- my mother a singer, my father an actor. Classically trained in piano from age 4 (still have my very first piano <<sigh>>). Spent a few years in the Midwest and on the east coast (lived in an orphanage and a convent) but ended up back in LA for high school and have remained here ever since. Joined MENSA at the age of 16, but immediately denounced my membership and formed ZENSA (where it's all about the Zen Quotient, baby -- apply within for membership). losangeles.tribe.net/tribe/4...deb83cbd Started UCLA when I was 17, but was kicked out by the time I was 20 (oops! had just a teeny bit of trouble conforming). Despite getting the boot, spent several more years living at the Co-op at UCLA -- which housed the most sublime and subversive elements on campus -- and helped shape me into the authority-questioning, self-aggrandizing, party-throwing bitch that I am today! I'm currently working for the "Man" in a multi-national corporation, infiltrating the male white corporate infrastructure so that I may facilitate its collapse from the inside out (like explosives strategically placed in a condemned building resulting in implosion) and meanwhile laughing all the way to the bank. I believe we are living in the times that will be known as the "Fall of Western Industrialized Civilization," which I look forward to; and I will sit back, watch, and play my role accordingly. I am a woman of extreme passions with no apologies -- take me or leave me as I am (because you're not going to change me). I have lived and learned much more than my 41 years would suggest, and I am comfortable with the fact that some people like me, and some people don't (and vice versa). I'm brutally honest, but working on my tact and diplomacy. I believe there is much to be learned from the yin yang symbol; it is exactly half light, and half dark. But within the light there is a seed of darkness, and within the darkness there is a seed of light. That is the lesson I have found therein, that is the way I see life, and it fills me with peace. Breathe in... Breathe out... I am naturally preoccupied with extremes, but emerging from a world of black and white to make peace with the gray. I'm a little girl, and I am an old woman. I am a queen, and I am a servant. I am burning emotion, and I am cool detachment. I am right, and I am wrong. I am good, and I am bad. I am love, and I am hate. I am a creator, and I am a destroyer. I am light, and I am dark. I am high, and I am low. I am beautiful, and I am ugly. I am perfect imperfection. I am an optimistic realist. I am an altruistic narcissist. I embrace my ambivalence, and encourage every other human to do the same. I am a seeker of love and light and truth -- but the truth is there is also darkness and ugliness in this world -- and it all co-exists. I find humor to be very healing, and love a good laugh! I strive to live beyond the cave of the five senses, and gather much of my information and knowledge through instinct and intuition. In that sense I am very animalistic, and need time to sniff people and things out before I trust them. I can be very shy and reserved in new situations, especially with new people, which can be misinterpreted as being aloof. But don't worry -- I'll warm up as soon as I feel comfortable and at ease. I pour much consciousness and awareness into walking through this world with my eyes wide open, and I start my sentences with "eye" much too much.
How you like me now?
