Name:belgatherial
Birthdate:Dec 11
Location:New Zealand
Website:http://http%3A%2F%2Fjaxgoss.wordpress.com%2F
I am a traveller, a lover, a professional computer nerd. I'm a sometimes writer, sometimes painter, sometimes maker of random things. I'm a mother. I've lived on five of the seven continents. I've been a teacher, an artist, a philosopher, a bookseller.

I have a tribe of chosen family that covers the globe. I have an amazing blood family. I have an amazing child.

I have love and joy and magic.

Mostly, I am annoyingly optimistic and positive. Black despair visits, but it never stays.

I'm South African, and Africa flows in my blood still, even though I don't live there any more. I live in New Zealand, and love it. It is not HOME, the way SA is, in my blood, but it feels adoptively homey. I have traveled enough now to feel like a foreigner everywhere, and like I'm at home everywhere at the same time.

I love the sun, and summer, and Christmas (in the southern hemisphere). I love story - books and movies and good tv. I love food. I love people. I love language, and how words taste on my tongue. I love kids. I love how technology is making the world smaller.

Welcome. Pull up a chair. There's a pot of fresh tea on the table. Make yourself at home.
