    Basically, cherry-picking what seems right for me at this moment. It therefore evolves over the decades.

Other-than-human Identity

  • Primary Identity

Otherkin Identity

  • Kin Name
  • Kintype(s)
    Centaur, djinn
  • Kintype(s) Description
    Start with a classic Greek centaur, and make adjustments. My head-hair isn't nearly as wavy as a Greek's, yet has some curve to it. It's dark brown, close to black (dark chocolate), and no more than shoulder-length, loose, not tied.

    My upper body is trim, healthy, not necessarily muscular, skin-tone is well-tanned, as if outside most of the time.

    Eye-color I'm not sure, but am thinking green. (I have hazel eyes for this life.)

    The junction feathers gradually, as does my mane partially up my upper back.

    My coat is a type of dun: best color description is that it's a kind of warm-gray metallic-dun, similar to grullo/grulla.

    My mane and tail start out the same as my coat, slowly blending to the same dark chocolate as my head-hair.

    Chocolate-brown socks on all legs, and my hooves are the same dark-chocolate color.

    Body-size/shape is that of a full-size horse, not a pony. The Sorraia pony is the kind of shape, though.

    Upper-wear is simple, such as tunic, button-up shirt, t-shirt, or whatever. No jewelry adornments.
  • Time of Awakening
    around age-49
  • Personal Otherkin Experiences
    It has affected my spirituality, my definitions for "Other Lives" as I now call all lives that include those in the past. Several new-age authors have molded that definition as well, including Mira Kelley and Anita Moorjani. And it has affected my writing, for at least one centaur-character.
  • Personal Awakening
    It was gradual and more of an acceptance of being Otherkin after researching the topic.

  1. Quick update on some things

    ZZ Top are a Texas band, but I was never into them. However, they are from Houston, so you can ponder that connection ;-)
  2. Seduced by his spirit once again

    You're welcome, Gryff :-) I asked my Wiccan friend earlier today, but haven't heard back from her yet. Probably busy at work.
  3. Seduced by his spirit once again

    Here's a site, too, of various Hellenic and Roman religion groups. They are definitely pagans, and I see reference to druids, another group with whom you may want to research. Also, I have asked one Wiccan friend, and will get back to you on anything I learn :)
  4. Spices

    Thanks for that link, @Shezep . It'll help. I might have to print out that diagram and keep it handy for reference when I'm not following a recipe.
  5. Intros and Interests

    I'm glad to see interest in this club, too! While I was learning pastry and baking in some culinary classes I took, the school didn't get enough students sign up for the primary cooking side of their program. Normally, that class would run the cafeteria, but I got roped into it with another classmate who had already taken that course. So, between the two of us and the master chef running the program, we ran a college cafeteria for a semester. Thankfully, I had taken most of my pastry classes by then, and could drop out of the program when I got a job at a Swiss bakery here. I might have remained there, too, if one particular other person hadn't essentially driven me out of it. But that's okay. I still learned enough that I can pass on my knowledge and experience in baking and pastry here, as needed.
  6. Cameras

    Okay :) The link is there when you feel a need to have better optics. That's one of the primary reasons people get bigger cameras (also bigger CCDs, like on medium-format cameras.) The lenses on them are always better than what a phone has, no matter the phone's quality. It has a lot to do with choosing a photographic tool strictly for that, and not to do anything else, as is the case with a phone. If Apple wanted to make a camera, they could, and you can bet it would have bigger lenses. Bigger lenses also mean more light coming through, and that can make a difference in some cases (such as any low-light situation.) Just my advice for when you may want to have something different :)
  7. Cameras

    @BirdMonster I've heard good things about Tamron (and other 'things' from friends who don't like them.) I am curious about what kind of upgrade you are imagining. Do you want to get a different brand, or a better model of Canon? I haven't researched such things in a long time, but there are some good professional review sites out there for us.
  8. My photos ~Kyms

    I like the solarization of the first few, and it's cute the addition of your guys :)
  9. Cameras

    @Kyms Have you ever looked at a mirrorless 'camera' for your phone? It's a rather cool development in the world of photography. Here's a good site that compares the differences between mirrorless cameras and DSLRs: DSLR vs. Mirrorless Cameras: Which Is Better for You?

  11. Bandcamp

    I really don't venture into the rap section. There's so little that I like, that I just don't bother for the most part. If some artist I like has a rap cut once per album, that's fine, and I can easily skip them if I don't care for it. So yeah, I'm picky, too :) I'm not sure, but you might be able to see my collection so long as you're logged in. Here are some of the electronic artists I like if you want to give them a listen now: Binar - Another Day in La-La-Land Banco De Gaia - Ollopa: Apollo Remixed Steve Roach - Traveler Alex Reece - The ElectroFlyz Series Vol.1
  12. The Let it All Out Thread

    Sorry for the mistake. I only knew he was going to Austin next. Take care of yourself. That's a lot of walking! Hydrate with Brawndo :p
  13. The Let it All Out Thread

    You must be in the Austin area, @Kerguelen . I've read that the trump will be heading back to Houston to "try again." He doesn't treat anything like this seriously. I would bet he doesn't even understand the difference between a tropical storm and a hurricane. Most people don't, but the president should. Right now, I'm more concerned about the status of some friend who live in a subdivision near the Barker and Addicks reservoirs. That's also very near the 'beginning' of Buffalo Bayou, but there's a physics action taking place with the water release. That is, water can't drain as fast when you pour more water into its 'container' (the bayous in this case) than it can handle. So, it backs up, and that's starting flood those neighborhoods once more. It's an additional nightmare, and one that will likely last through the rest of the week :(
  14. The Let it All Out Thread

    I am safe and not flooded, but the western side of my neighborhood is. Plus, I am quite done with hearing the rain these last five days! (Yes, I am in Houston.)
  15. Strangers Like Me

    It's good to hear you had fun! Also, I was wondering in that Disney game if there'd be any reference to characters from the older movies (as you say Chernabog was a possibility, if summoned.) I have to admit that, other than Aladdin, I'm just not familiar with most of the Disney movies of the last few decades. The ones from the 1930s to the 1960s are those of my childhood (Fantasia, though, I didn't get to see for the first time until I was an adult.) It would have been interesting to play one of the alligators from Dance of the Hours :-D
