Magickal Awakening (c.2002 – c.2007)The books that resonate with my past show that my interest in Magick was in part connected with an attempt at coming to terms with my budding sexuality. While I consider my sexality a major part of my spiritualty, it is not so central to my path as it had once been.

Magickal Renaissance (c.2016 – Present)Recently, I have been drawn to books relative to Chaos Magic and the Left-Hand Path. This is a desire to learn about all dualities of magick, that I may forge a person "grey" path.
