The one everyone knows! The secret center of the cosmic spiderweb hum hum hum!! Mention Austin in a crowd of strangers, and surely everyone will say “Austin? Do you know Angel?” & of course…they do. Perhaps I shouldn’t speak so loudly, I’m sure there’s meaning to her magical web-pulling ways, and we’ll all be drawn together for some purpose soon.
Besides her role as people curator in the cosmic hum, she’s a painter, a collector of magic & an antique magnet, a storyteller, a world traveler, a gypsy witch, a whirling dervish, writer, an insomniac oracle, & one of the most cozy lovely amazing ladies you could ever have the luck to meet!! One day we will travel to China, or perhaps I will move to Austin. One never knows.
Her blog speaks of a million more wonders than I could ever detail here, so get a cup of tea, cozy up for awhile, and tuck in for a good read.
Shhhhh!! This is kind of a cheating post; Angel’s asked for a new mix a few times and I’ve been throwing songs into a playlist and not getting around to burning them and mailing in tangible form, & so here you are – an Angeliska mix for everyone. Please to (right click &) download and put in a playlist in this order before listening!
