GeneralRiding my longnosed critters (horses for you city folks)or just being around them; Being a Cav Trooper; my religion of Wicca which is beautiful; being a tree hugger and a dirt lover, getting out in the hills just following an empty pathway to see nature around me; laughing for the sheer fun of it! Teaching my British and Australian friends to say "All, Ya'all." Doing nice things for other "just cuzz."
MusicThe Eagles are number one followed by Dar Williams and Meatloaf, KANE, Los Pimpos, Johnny Bland, then it's a wide variety from Andy Williams to Led Zepplin to Stevie Ray Vaughn and on to Enya and Altan, through Vivaldi then Steely Dan. Recently Lindsay Jane. I hate anything that demeans women or advocates killing cops.
MoviesTo Kill a Mocking Bird; Shenandoah (go Jimmy Stewart!)Apocalypse Now (memorized all the lines); Platoon; White Sands & Off Limits (Defoe as a CID agent); The Horse Whisperer; Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit; The Ninth Gate, Rocky Horror Picture Show; Serenity; Gladiator; Attack of the Killer Tomatoes; The General's Daughter(even bigger laugh from all the Special Agents in my office who were the real CID deal, yeah, John, just try losing a gun in the REAL Army); Dances with Wolves, I have all of Johnny Depp's movies and love his range, a 'non canned' actor and worth seeing.
TelevisionI don't usually watch TV. Time factor but I find Firefly, Supernatural, Smallville, 24, NCIS, The Unit and House currently worth buying on DVD. I watched Buffy and Angel, Farscape, Tour of Duty and La Femme Nikita in Iraq for entertainment. I find a lot of mindless crap on TV and shoose to buy the stuff I really want to watch for a permanent collection.
BooksBook of Shadows by Phillis Curott; Anything by Vivian Crowley; Judy Harrow. My first book, Future Past; Poems by Robert Frost because he got it. The Zen masters and poets; Shakespere for the words; The Lucifer Effect, cos' I had a hand in the telling of Abu Ghriab thanks to Dr. Zimbardo and The Elegant Universe.
HeroesMy Mom and Dad. My sister; Col George Kinoshita, he taught me that if I took care of my soldiers, they would accomplish the mission and take care of me. SSG Richard Eaton, friend, comrade-in-arms, philosophical alcohol consultant and co-conspirator in all things mischevious and daring, rest his soul. CW4 Reese Farrish; Michael, Flyboy, Riggs, Backseater, Dr. O., Tim and Christie, they know why. My husband Will, the greatest friend a wife could ever have (puts up with ALL my shit).

About me:A 23 year retired Veteran Soldier who's been around the world at least seven or eight times. Most of it in the dregs of the world but found them to be really spiritual, earthy and if you are creative, fun too! Yep, I'm an old lady but not dead yet, and am a bit of a workaholic due to my previous military positions as Special Agent In Charge/Commander of the only Airborne CID unit at Fort Bragg, NC (yes, we made the front pages of Newsweek in 2002 for all of our Domestic Violence investigaitons). When I was in Iraq I ran the Mass Graves Exploitation Missions, oversaw the High Value Detainee Interrogation Team for War Crimes and a bunch of other jobs my boss didn't want to be involved with. Yep, Abu Ghraib, been there, investigated the investigators who investigated that. Was privliged to be a member of the RePat Team so got involved in bringing Jessica Lynch and the others from combat to Germany (hey, somebody had to get a few beers in before heading over the berm). Drove all the way from Kuwait to Baghdad (it went from goats and camels, to sheep, goats and camels, to goats, sheep and donkeys, to goats sheep, donkeys and cows all the way up, mixed in with dust, dirt and more dust). Started the first Open Wiccan Circle in Iraq and celebrated Samhain in the back parking lot of our compound on BIAP (for you civilians out there that's Baghdad International Airport). I currently hack my way through walls of human flesh playing Civil War Cavalry on the weekends, have finished one book and am half way through the next, tend to paint a bit and play guitar and sing. I'm a writer as well. Not by design, but by necessity. I share my time between Washington,DC and my 40 acre farm in Southern Virginia where hubby (a highly decorated Vietnam Combat Vet, Silver Star type winner, I only have a Bronze Star), the critters and my backyard wooden Stonehenge magic circle are. Due to constantly working under maximum warp high operational tempo and max stress, I tend to do a bunch of other things like adding 12 foot decks onto the house, putting in fish ponds and creating Zen gardens on the place. Yes Martha, I also am well diciplined in the Wiccan ways of Greencraft so can get really witchy and meditative too! I am a Hedgewitch as far as that goes. Of course tending bar at the DMZ Saloon East (our private bar on the property fashioned after my days in S. Korea where I had a bar in my hooch with my Military Intelligence counterparts) is something I also love to do because I love it when the place is rocking, full of people wanting to have a great time and dancing on the bar may just occur. So that's who I think I am, of course I don't have a problem with me being me, you can think what you want and deal with it as you need to. There are not many ladies like me around and don't think because I can do the aforementioned that I can't put on a nice dress and behave when I want to either! :) I like real people who have done real life things and aren't afraid to talk about it and laugh at themselves on occasion. I remember kind is not only a word, it is something we can all pass on in our travels!

OK, THIS ONE IS AN ALL TIME FAVORITE ANYPLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAMES GUNN, I'D LOVE TO SEE YOUR VIDEO TO THIS ONE!!!!!
Who I'd like to meet:People who do interesting things with their lives and enhance themselves by expanding their material as well as spiritual horizons then have a joy for life in doing so. I like folks who don't take themselves so seriously and on occasion let their 10 year old inner child come out to play. Folks who aren't afraid to jump in a mud puddle even when someone is watching and get a good laugh out of it for themselves just because. I like talented people, music, art, poetry, storytellers, writers, thespians, reenactors, historians. Wiccans and real spiritual types of any path, don't like Playgans. Don't send me any business invites, I have a job I love thank you very much! Creativity is my light in life and I love to hear others speak of theirs as well. Life to me is a roller coaster ride and I love, roller coasters!..
