I am 61 years young, a performance artist, writer and painter (oils) I live with my Dalmatian doggie

A DAKINI is a semi wrathful spirit woman from
the Tibetan Buddhism tradition who manifests in dreams, visions and during meditation.
She is the Goddess of Life's turning points, serving as instigator, inspirer, messenger and

She is often depicted as a young naked figure
in dancing pose often holding a skull cup of
the Elixir of Life in one hand and a curved

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!
