My name is Steph. I'm 30 and am surprisingly ok with being so. I live on the East coast of Scotland, on top of a hill with my mum and three kitties. Our house overlooks a castle ruin and the River Tay - it's an eternal source of inspiration and my own private Camelot.

I'm a Jewellery Designer, with my own business. I create something every day, from jewellery, perfumed goods, felted accessories, stories, photographs or drawings. If I couldn't create, I couldn't live. I know that sounds a wee bit pretentious, but it's true.

I'm developing my interest in witchcraft, paganism and Wicca. I'm at the beginning of my road with regards to this, but I'm hopeful that it will be a rewarding journey when I find exactly what it is I'm looking for.

My Journal is sporadically updated, eclectic and whimsical. There's no rhyme or reason to my posts and the tone is often dark. I do not censor my views and I say what I want.

You may add me if you like, but please do let me know that you have done, so that I may decide whether I want to add you back. I probably will, unless you seem horridly dull, then I shan't.

If you're adding me for no other reason than you're friend-hunting, then don't bother as I prefer my f-list to be made up of people who're actually interested in getting to know me and interacting.

This is possibly my favourite poem or villanelle by the wonderful Sylvia Plath...

Mad Girl's Love Song

"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)"

- Sylvia Plath
