"Much like She who's namesake I claim…
I am Elemental
I am grounded, some say down to EARTH
I am resiliently fluid; they say be like the WATER
I am steadfast, brilliant, and ardent, burning hot like FIRE
I am either fresh or wild and relentless, much like the WIND.
I am a highly skilled warrior, a protector, a nurturer.
I am divinely feminine; I am divinely masculine.
I am tradition, just as I am change
I am a BADASS Leather Classicist"
