Throws a snowball at Joey...

Post by TaoJewGirl on Wed Apr 29, 2009 4:06 pm

Hiyas, peoples. Well, my 'path' is so convoluted, it's more like the Minotaur's Labyrinth. Razz
I was baptized a Catholic at birth, then when my mother divorced when I was 2, that ended
that. So, it was then sort of non-denom Christian, till I was a teenager and went to live with
my father. Then it was holy-roller, pentecostal, speaking in tongues, faith-healing-by-laying-
on-hands, Assembly of God. Then, in the service (USAF), I became an atheist. Then, a few
years after I got out, I started 'looking' and found paganism (eclectic animistic Shamanism).

Although I'd always been interested in Judaism, I'd never known any Jews, personally. But
then I met this guy online in a chatroom and we started yakking about him being Jewish. I'm
in the process of converting, and we celebrate our 6th anniversary in September of this year.
We keep a strictly kosher household and are observant Orthodox Sephardic (ladino) Jews.

As for the Taoism, I remember meeting a Taoist once, at an eclectic religious group meeting
on the local campus. I liked some of what he had to say, so he suggested reading "The Tao
of Pooh" and "The Te of Piglet", and then I read the Tao Te Ching, and I've been hooked
ever since. Also great books are pretty much any by Eva Wong, including "Tales of the Taoist
Immortals".

We live in Indy with our muttly, Adom (hebrew for "red", cuz he is), a german shepherd/chow/
coyote mix that we got from the pound in Los Angeles, two cats (Snowbelle and Rosie), two
brothers-in-law, two sisters-in-law, and my mother-in-law (all 'commonlaw', since we're not
married).

I'm a computer student (and love tinkering with Linux and puters), like animals (especially
Ravens) and piercings, and...

that's bout all I can think of for now. Smile

And that's cool bout the food board. And I left Craig's List forums, not because I didn't like debate/discussion, but
because of the level of it, the sheer amount of trolling, and the lack of moderation.

*goes to find the food board*

Okay, I posted a recipe there for goat stew. You can substitute with pork or lamb, but NOT beef or a 'red' meat; it needs a 'blue' meat for the spices to work right.
