Follow your nose (it always knows) is my meandering diary about living a life following intuition, instincts, apparitions, smells, and most especially dreams. Begun as a place to share an unabashed love of shamanism and mysticism, as a place to share stories in the form of quotidian fragments of life or ancient tales or anything in between, on most days this is simply a photoblog.
Writing days include thoughts on movies, travels, friends, and bumps in the night; occasional rants on love gone wrong, the limitations of psychiatry, and the general state of the world; musings on the teachings of gurus, random strangers, cross-cultural encounters, the mysteries of the universe and fluctuations in the weather.
In Mayan astrology I am Red Electric Serpent (something about an intense relationship with the body, a shedding of skins in rebirth)
In Chinese astrology I am Wood Dragon (big ego, opinionated, reckless, never settles down in love)
But really, the ordinary truth is I’m a middle-aged female, single mom to a gorgeous, smart, sullen teenage boy, living in the downtown core of Toronto, Canada, and working as an editor in the film and television industry.
You could call me Katalina, or maybe Kat.
My hopes for this space are to share the rambling path that is my life, both visual and anecdotal, to burrow into lived experiences, the world out there and the stuff in my head, and crack open the navel-gazing like a walnut just to see the insides.
Bright Blessings to all Visitors,
