describe me to a stranger (version 2010!)


wow, it's been almost four years since I last did this meme. time to dust it off ;-)

in a comment, describe what sort of person you think I am,
as if you were telling your best friend who had never met me.
(try to pretend you don't know I'm going to read it!)

"Belenen is..."


and if you post it in your journal I will be sure to respond. ♥ If you did this way back when, you can either ignore this or give me an updated version now that you know me better. ;-)

Belenen is a magical creature of colour and life.

Hmm... being for the most part a stranger to you, my description of you would be... She seems a woman of boundless energy and endless smiles, I think is a good start.

Holy crap! You're listening to me!! That is so awesome!

I'm still in the middle of answering all of the "I want to know everything about you" questions. Haha. But I'll go ahead and do this one, too.

Actually I've told lots of people about you since you took all of those photos! "Yeah, my friend, Bel/James took those." (sometimes I say "Bel," sometimes I say "James," sometimes I say "Bel slash James"...mainly just for the benefit of people who may meet you at some point so they won't be confused.) And then I go onto say, "She's awesome. She's very opinionated, and she always stands up for what she believes in!" (Or I go off on how awesome your photography is.)

Bel is an unexpected warrior whose greatest weapon is sweetness, who speaks in rainbows and moves in words. Ze is inspiring the way that sunrises are, in that ze never seems to go dark even in zir darkest moments. Ze's a project of the people: ze learns something from everyone and then teaches them something in return. Ze is equanimity embodied with a truly genderfree spirit and will bend your preconceptions whether you like it or not (but it's almost guaranteed that you will).

Ok, enough gushing. :P Hope I didn't embarrass you my dear.

Also, in regards to Bel vs. James: which would you prefer? Because I find myself slipping between them, and I'd so much rather be calling you what you'd most like to be called. I get so frustrated with people who refuse to call me by my chosen name (which, thankfully, are not many and I don't have to interact with them). But still.

"Bel is this wild spirit, I've never met anyone like her. She's constantly wide open to everything- not just experience, but concepts, and love. She whole-heartedly just gobbles up the world, you know? Like there's never anything that's going to hold her back or make her feel bashful or wrong, she's just out there, raw, and loving every minute of it.

She's got a really creative soul, very artistically inclined, loves making jewelry and doing photography. Even her makeup is art- I've never seen anyone with more fabulous eye makeup than she has. And she has these eyes that are sick gorgeous aquamarine colored. Really stunning. She's also massively spiritual and has a personal spirit path that spans several religions and pantheons, which is so like her, just experiencing all of it.

And I know I've been saying 'she' this whole time, right, and she was born a female and has those parts and everything, but she's actually disavowed gender completely, which I think is massive, it's not only brave, but it's really groundbreaking and profound to be able to break through something that integral to our race and our cultures. I'm really proud of her for doing that, and lately, even, she's changed her name entirely to James. And I love that, I call my Mom that, and her name is Jamie.

I'm not really sure what else to say, I mean it was a struggle to come up with what I managed to say. Bel's just something you have to experience over the course of years, you can't possibly try to encompass her with words right off the bat. So friend her. If nothing else, she'll really make you think about yourself and the world. But I think you'll be surprised."

James is a kind, caring and passionate person. There is love and light all about James. James is truly one of the most amazing people I know.

Belenen is that person in my life whom I feel incredibly connected to, yet wish that I was infinitely closer with as well. Ze radiates light, and it is in the presence of zir words that I feel accepted and strong and comforted and open to being the most like myself. Sometimes ze intimidates me with the sheer prowess of zir mind, but ze is also so very open and nurturing. Speaking to zir is a lesson, and I just want to drink it up and pour it back forth.
