March 3rd, 2018 - Hi folks!

I'm still working on czuciki/animal teacher art, which you can find over at DeviantArt, as well as Facebook and Etsy!

I am about to start radiotherapy for an incurable genetic cancer disease, and I currently have three tumours in my head and neck that I will probably have to live with permanently. They aren't what you'd call super operable. But I'm in good hands! I haven't yet made plans to have this site mirrored, and I'm still working out how to keep it going if I ever disappear. Hopefully that won't be for a good, long time!

In the meantime, a few people have asked about sending donations to help with the hosting of the site, or other costs. I have thought about possibly starting something like an animal teacher Patreon, but I also have a Ko-Fi account, and for the cost of a coffee, you can really help things along! Don't feel like you have to though, the whole point of this animal teacher dictionary is that it is and will remain freely available.

Along with now having practiced shamanism for two decades, I am also in the Ovate Grade of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD) after spending 6 years in the Bardic Grade. This has very much brought me back into paganism and spirituality in a way that is imoprtant to me, and I hope this means more animal teacher essays and other articles soon. I can't believe it's been five years since I last updated! (And yet I also can, I had a lot of life to go off and live in that period of time).

Want to get in touch with me? Feel free to shoot me an email at I attempt to get back to people as soon as possible, but I am often ill, or working on other projects (my main job is now as a fiction writer); so please be patient.
