Toru Kamei, Auspicious Animal

prague in ashes by shamanski
I backed the Cheimonette Tarot on kickstarter and totally forgot that I was recently sent a download link for these wonderful songs, as part of the backer gifts for the project. Which I promptly forgot about. Thanks for the reminder, beautiful, talented friend!

“You are breaking her heart,” said Ada. 
“Ada girl, adored girl,” cried Van, “I’m a radiant void. I’m convalescing after a long and dreadful illness. You cried over my unseemly scar, but now life is going to be nothing but love and laughter, and corn in cans. I cannot brood over broken hearts, mine is too recently mended.” ~Nabokov

Last year, I sat down with my brilliant friend Eden Gallanter to be given an incredible tarot reading with her own Cheimonette deck. Afterward, I composed a sad, strange, wandering, threshold-of-pain-skirting soundscape based on what the cards had told me. That song is one of several musical interpretations of Eden’s readings that were composed by various musicians for The Sonic Arcana, an album curated by Eden as a supplement to her deck’s Kickstarter project. 
The Sonic Arcana compilation is now available for purchase on Bandcamp, with beautiful pieces by Artemis, Mark Growden, Jill Tracy, Star St. Germain, and Unwoman. The final track is my own ”Radiant Void”.
Bleh, ugh, ouch, sigh. Such a weird, cathartic, wistful soup. (Winter was hard.) I took this mopey selfie shortly after its completion.
Um… enjoy? :-)

I do not normally proselytize about such things…or much of anything, actually…but I would be greatly remiss if I did not share my very positive recent experiences with Toni at Naturallogic.
As a lady of a certain age, I am noticing that my skin is changing, and in addition to that, a recent but temporary change in environment left me with these weird, dry flaky/scaly patches on my cheeks. Coincidentally, a friend on Facebook had been raving about Naturallogic the day before.  Interest piqued and feeling desperate, I placed an order for some samples along with a note describing my plight and asking if I had ordered the right things.
A few days later a package swiftly arrived full of the samples and a lovely note from Toni herself assuring me that I had indeed ordered the correct things for my situation and to please let her know how they worked for me.
A mere 1.5 days afterward, my skin has totally cleared up. No more lizard skin weirdness! This stuff is seriously amazing. I ordered a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer and while the products are not inexpensive, I do think they are very much worth it. I want to recommend it to everyone, everywhere - not that I think this woman needs my help getting business  - but because if you are a person with skin that you care about, I think you should be using these things.
About the company: Naturallogic is  ”Truly Natural, Organic Skin Care & Body Care, handmade FRESH from original recipes based on Nutrition, Holism, Ancient Practices & Natural Principles, using Certified Organic & Wildcrafted Food-Grade Super Foods, Phyto Nutrients, Clinically Proven Bioactives, Botanical Extracts, Enzymes & Pure Herb, Plant & Flower Oils. ”

If you are prompted to peek in on her shop and order a few things, please let her know I sent you her way! This is *not* a sponsored post and I am not getting paid to say this,  but I do think it is helpful for people to know where their traffic is coming from.

Long time followers know that a year or two ago I started up Skeletor is Love and although I no longer spam you all with it over on this account, it exists as both a tumblr and a facebook page which I maintain regularly and whose fanbase -somehow!- continues to grow.
I’ve probably also told you about my sister - an amazing mental health guidance counselor - who was the inspiration for Skeletor Is Love. Unbeknownst to her at the time!
Well, this year my sister and I are participating as a team (The Twisted Sisters!) for the National Alliance on Mental Illness annual NAMIWalk.  She does it every year, though this will be my first time.  Raising awareness for mental illness is a cause that is very near and dear to both of us, to our family, and, as you can imagine - to Skeletor Is Love.
People reach out to me constantly wanting to donate in some way to Skeletor Is Love; telling me they’ve printed up the images to give as gifts and they want to pay me for it, asking if we were ever going to sell tee shirts because they’d throw money at us if that were the case, all kinds of offers for support.  We are never going to put a donate button on the sites and we are not here to take your money, but if you are serious about wanting to contribute, please consider donating to our team and lending your support to the mental health community.
