People often ask me why I chose the name Link. One important lesson for me this time around is to understand how all things "interconnect" -- like noodles in the same cosmic broth. (Okay, I also wanted a really simple name that would not raise eye-brows in a mundane setting. Something like RunningBuffaloMoonFeather just doesn't fit me...)
Most of my writing focuses on how ordinary parts of everyday life can be sacred and magickal. Being ordinary makes them no less special! I try to erase the lines that separate spirituality from the rest of life. I like to see nearly every action as a magickal event, from slicing an apple to licking an envelope. I often encourage readers to be creative and try to discover what feels right for themselves, and for the moment. The most important Book we could ever find is written deep within ourselves, and within nature -- and every day we turn a new page!
I grew up in a small suburban NJ town, the youngest child of two hard-working parents. I survived 12 years of Catholic school, which helped shape my "everyday" spiritual views (With the nuns of Saint Mary's School, everything was a religious experience - from lunch to recess to taking tests and doing homework.) While I shed much of what I learned there, I think a few things stuck.
I began learning about alternative spirituality in the mid-1970's, but did not really become active in the Craft until 1993 (what I call reaching "Spiritual Puberty"). My writing has been published in many places throughout the US, plus Canada, England, Ireland, Holland, Brazil, Australia, Poland and other countries.
Jobwise, I have worked for large international telecommunications companies most of my life. (Again, a lesson in how things connect...) I hold a bachelors degree in Communications/Journalism, and a masters degree in business and government policy. I moved from New Jersey to Miami Beach, Florida on August 1, 2001 and enjoy Miamiís internationally diverse culture, with a Latin spice!
I am an active member of the Covenant of the Goddess (CoG), the US National Coordinator for the Pagan Federation International, and a member of the Gardnerian tradition.
Fun? I enjoy good food and good wine, bad humor, camping, gardening, traveling, almost anything Brazilian, the Ocean, SciFi, and sleeping late at least once a week.
