Gothic Granola AUT FACERE AUT MORI

De Nomine

IMG_2933

If we must use labels as a convenience on this earthly plane, two labels that fit me are “goth” and “granola.”

 

I enjoy bats, coffins, Bauhaus, Specimen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Christian Death, visiting cemeteries, nineteenth century literature, vampires, nineteenth-century and cyber fashion.

 

I also enjoy tofu, trees, veganism, buying in bulk, anything from the Moosewood Collective, nutritional yeast, and consignment shops.

 

The DIY (Do It Yourself) ethic unites the two.

 

I like to make and eat granola while listening to playlists that originated in the late ’70s in the Batcave and wearing all black clothing (with a fair few t-shirts from here).

 

I do not claim to represent all of goth-dom or granola-ity. Generally, these labels are applied externally, though I wait for the day when I’m so goth I think labels are passe. They are, from an ultimate perspective, unimportant.

 

Be nice, kids. Do less harm, and less harm will be done to you.

 

Q’s Code of Ethics: CAKE

 

How do I show…

 

Compassion

Awareness

Kindness

Equanimity

To other humans? To other sentient beings? To the environment?

  1. Hi!
    I work at swedish magazine about family search. We have an upcoming article about swedish roots in America and I would like to use one of your great photos from the cementary in Ryssby for a small text about Ryssby. Would that be ok with you? Please let me know as soon as you can!
    I found it here: https://cemeteryspelunking.wordpress.com/2015/01/25/ryssby-church-cemetery-longmont-colorado/.
