Erm... my name is Gil.

Eons ago I took a silly little myspace quiz called "Your Name Acronym" resulting in
(G)loomy (I)ntense (L)ovable, which I would say is remarkably accurate and no doubt the order in which you'd experience 'me.' The walls are broad, steep, and foreboding, but if you endure these first two stages then it may just be worth it; to enter the sanctum sanctorum of my inner circle of trust, loyalty, and magnanimity.

I would say I am extremely difficult to keep track of... being a Gemini coupled with the INFJ type has made me quite the intolerable individual. Constantly shifting my priorities and scatter-brained antics all the while being passionate about each in their short lived moments leaves me vexed and unsatisfied on a daily basis. I can't help but feel that I have been cruelly maltreated by the fates. Perhaps I'm paying for some misdeeds in a previous life.

I have an insatiable lust for the metaphysical undercurrents hidden from our primary perception and have made it a life's pursuit to uncover some of these secrets and experiences for myself. With borrowed principles from the greecian and roman philosophers, to archaic paganistic practices, and eastern mystic perspectives; I try my best to be receptive to these little pittances of Truth. And as my dear kindred spirit, Emily Dickinson, once so eloquently spoke through her immortal verse, 'I dwell in possibility.'

In conclusion I'm just an exceptionally mournful, spiritually and philosophically inclined, truth-seeker in need of nothing else at the moment.

To transcend this bleak reality as I have yet to f


Nature is what we know
But have no art to say,
So impotent our wisdom is
To Her simplicity.
