“maggie the cat”
the universal eclectic
What to know about “the universal eclectic” – I am a writer. a poet. a screenwriter. a painter. a psychic. a sensitive. a musician. a reader. an observer. a recorder. an author. a film reviewer. self taught. it’s the only way.
My causes of interest are being an animal activist & a strong supporter of progressive causes. I support LGBTQI rights – equality & same-sex marriage. I am an advocate for the prevention of child abuse: sexual, physical, emotional, mental & spiritual.
I want to work toward expressing my views on mental health & mental illness. I want to be educated about diagnoses such as DID/MPD, Bipolar, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Anxiety Disorder and others. Doing research & education is extremely important to me.
I strongly support and advocate the legalization, decriminalization and repeal of the laws that make marijuana illegal on all levels not just for medicinal use.
I am a lover & advocate for animals wild and domesticated.
I do daily journaling.
I believe in the value of dream interpretation toward understanding one’s infinite inner consciousness.
The kind of writing that I engage in are poetry. fiction (novels and short stories). semi-autobiographical books. non-fiction & screenplays.
I am an avid cinephile and anglophile. I love theatre. great television (esp. British). There is not enough time to view all the films that are on my list to watch and more are added constantly.
I love books and reading them. I hesitate to reveal that I discovered the kindle & kindle app. reading on my tablet is more enjoyable. I find myself developing the beginnings of an extensive digital library. but still I ❤ the feel of the hardcover book; not so much the paperback.
I am addicted to my laptop computer & tablet. Connecting on line is always changing, growing & expanding. I have an insatiable craving for knowledge & enlightenment. I love my family of two humans (myself and my partner) both lesbians and our twenty animals. one being an amazon parrot named Saki. had thirteen cats (Schroeder, Sanji [R.I.P 1999-2015]. Soyer. Spike. Sigmund. Poe. Parker. Carter. Lorca. Scout. Snow. River. Tinker). two chinchillas (Sundance and Sagan). one degue Squeak). the Squeak Community of Mice
I have a crush on actress Stana Katic. She is just one of my guilty pleasures.
I have a passion for the study of psychotherapy and other forms of psychology. Learning and expanding my mind & soul is very important to me. Through self-analysis. Meditation & Reiki I am finding the roads to this goal.
Writing and music are also very important modes leading me through this life toward higher consciousness.
I must not forget about the body in which all of this would not be possible. It contains the mind. The spirit. The heart. The living flesh of my existence on this plane.
I am working toward keeping my body healthy. It is not easy in this world. It is an ongoing effort but without it I would not exist as I am now. I am here in this place. space & time in the vastness of this universe & the infinite possibility of others.
All is one. One is all.
ps. I hope to be able to express various thoughts about the relevancy of ideas happening around the world from a variety of interests and curiosities. I am happy to join Jennifer Kiley’s blog “the secret keeper.” Hopefully, I will be able to share some of my thoughts and favorite things.
I have taken on a curious form of amusement & learning. I will be expressing events marked in time. past. present & future. to draw attention to something otherwise not seen or registered as making a noise in the proverbial forest.
gossip in the form of spreading the word now referred to as trending. before our time it would take 6 mos or longer to receive any news from anywhere. Some places that still is so.
It shall be an intriguing adventure. Gossip shows what fascinates the animal who has the ability to think & to be aware of themselves & their mortality.
