bread and roses

a song of pilgrimage

External Services:
This journal is currently inactive.

My journal title is based on this song, which I love because it expresses something of my quest to combine political engagement and spirituality (in the broadest sense of each) into a coherent whole.

I live in London, England in a friendly, chaotic household of adults, teenagers and companion animals. Pilgrimage and spirituality are central to my life; I have practised and learned from a number of different paths and remain grateful to all of them. I'm nonbinary, polyamorous and polysexual.

For those who know me offline, I have a Google Calendar and keep up-to-date contact details in a locked post here. If you don't currently have access to either of these and think it would be useful if you did, let me know. I check my e-mail regularly at the address in this profile. If there's anything else you want to know about me, just ask. I won't be offended by a polite question, and I will probably answer (but I don't promise!)
