My blog consists of varying things that are of interest to me or are related to areas of personal study, including but not limited to...victorian era, gothic lolita, funeral rituals/memento mori, owls, peacocks, moths, mythology, alchemy, magick/occult pratctices, doom metal, black metal, rarities, old books, anatomy, botany, vintage ads, art, sacred geometry, weird/bizarre things, and much more than I could ever possibly list. I try to find lots of new original stuff to share when I can.

[small update]

Hi! A bit of a lack of posts lately, but never fear I am still alive.

Will be in the process of moving over the next couple of weeks, as I’ll be returning to the amazing area of Asheville, NC. If I have a chance Ill try to load a queue before I begin the main super fun moving stuff, but if you dont see any activity, dont freak out, Ill be back as soon as I possibly can. And if you are just now finding me, hi and thank you and I hope you find many interesting things here.

I am very excited to be able to live where I feel that I have always belonged, and look forward to many new adventures and the unknown future. Im always looking to meet many new like-minded friends and individuals after I move,  as well as  to be able to wander the vast mountain forests that surround the area…I have been in solitude from myself and from nature far too long.
