I'm VampireLily..... my friends call me Lily or Lil. I'm a naturally redheaded, green eyed, witch with a hard-core shoe fetish and a fucked up sense of humor. My heritage is Scots, Irish, Welsh, American.... proud of every single one of them.
I wear Victorian corsets, I don't shop Hot Topic unless it's for stripey socks or something with skulls, which i love. My home looks like Lord Byron's place after a particularly nasty opium trip. I'm a writer, a romantic, and sometimes a big pain in the ass. I dig the smell of old books, designing my own clothes, cursing in public places and i am a proud advocate of creative punctuation. I over analyzing stuff. I read into everything. My first love is art & words.
I'm an intelligent, strong woman. I have opinions. I have a low tolerance for bullshit. I won't apologize for any of it.
This is more than you'll ever need to know about me and probably much more than you actually give a shit about.
Below is one of the four cards that i created for my website... this one represents 'Muse'. I try not to take myself too seriously... but i'm quite serious about my work.
There are those of us who walk between the worlds...
We straddle the line between darkness and light, between the tangible and the imperceptible, between the land of humanity and the shadows of the spirit. We do this not because we choose to....but because we must. Within the structure of the common day, we seek out the tiny fractures which allow us to penetrate true beauty.... to find radiance in the typical moment because we know that no moment is to be ignored.
We obtain immortality through the preservation of art in all her guises. We write, we create, we paint & draw, we photograph... we leave pieces of ourselves behind so that we will not be forgotten. Through language, music, and art....we are leaving a history that will be told long after we can no longer tell it ourselves. A story that deserves to be told.
So come...walk with us~
"The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution - weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way they could get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today." ~ Lawrence M. Krauss
