[ About ]

Greetings, I call myself Stormwise Raven, and I’d like to welcome you to my blog! I thought I’d set aside a page here, to introduce myself and my blog to you.

My name is taken from two great fascinations of mine: storms, and ravens. Storms are my element – when there is one outside, that is generally where I will be found. Thus, Stormwise as a name has more to do with the direction I often like to travel than it does with actual wisdom. Ravens are something that hold just as much fascination for me, and carry just as much personal meaning. I first saw ravens flying around in eastern Arizona (USA). I’ve seen eagles and hawks, along with any number of other birds, even crows and magpies, make their way through the air … but until that day, when I saw the pair of ravens flying around, I’d never seen birds own the air. Against the backdrop of the desert landscape, on a bright day with no clouds in the sky, these two birds stood out, and were obviously un-perturbed to do so. They were in their element, reveling in it; and it left an impression that will remain with me for a lifetime. You could say that ravens, like storms, are holy things for me: I find a deep sense of sacredness in both; and experience a profound connection with them. I would like to share a quote with you, one that I feel is perhaps the most fitting quote I’ve ever encountered when it comes to ravens:

I am a black bird, a Raven, I am Raven. I know and I am knowing—I know and see life and death, expansion and contraction and I do not shiver and cry—I am unafraid.

I am Raven. I am black as liquid night with wings and my eyes are stars to see by.

The light within me leads the way and it is revealed through my eyes and I am what lies between the dark and light.

I am the balance between.”

– H. Raven Rose, Liquid Me: A Collection of Poetry and Prose

The blog you’ve wandered into is my little piece of the blog-o-sphere. It is a place where I like to keep a record of my thoughts and interests. I wouldn’t say that I have any real theme or structure to this blog, it’s actually my intention to avoid doing this … I would like for this blog to be a little more organic than engineered or contrived. My interests are myriad, my attention span fluctuates, and WordPress is kind enough to grant me lots of virtual space! This is also a place from where I hope to get to know interesting people and learn some new things. I welcome conversation here – please feel free to leave a comment either on this page or in another part of this blog, and I’ll likely return the favor!

    • Thank you, very much, for thinking of my blog with regards to this award :-) I was very happy to stumble across your blog recently, and look forward to reading more from you (here, and in your blog) as time goes on … ravens of a feather, and all ;-)

  1. Hello Stormwise.
    Everyday I discover new things in this world and it’s the first time I hear about someone interested in ravens! I love the way you write and thank you for letting me learning something more today (I don’t talk about the storm part because I know a lot of people who love storms…) ;)

    I don’t really know if writing you this will lead to somewhere, but I try.
    I’m an artist, with a project. A crazy project, and I’m trying to find people who might be interested in it. If you have a minute, go and check my page. And if you don’t like it, I’m sorry for bothering you…
    Take care,

    • It’s no bother at all – thank you for taking the time to visit and read in my blog :-) Ravens are special creatures – as are all creatures, actually – but with ravens I do feel a certain degree of kindred spirit.

      I did go and visit your project’s page and, while I am not at this point able to donate the dollar you are asking for, I can at the very least send you wishes for luck and success … I will admit you captured some of my curiosity :-)

    • Thank you very much – I’m glad you find it interesting :-) I think that you feel a connection to Nature in general is a great thing … we all have this connection, but not everyone allows themselves to actually feel it.
