Hi! I’m Colleen (Lentile) Large, otherwise known as The Wild Woman. My pronouns are she/her. I’m 28, a Scorpio and a Virginia native, currently living in New England. I like reading and writing and learning about true crime and cults. I love tattoos and fashion, particularly thrifting. I’ve got a couple of degrees in writing and do that as my day job. I am married to my best friend and I’m momma to two rescue hounds. I care about equality and the environment. I want everyone to feel like the babes that they are.
I read “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed and got a little too hooked on the idea of being a wild woman. But, since we are in the 21st century here, I want everyone, man, woman and non-binary folk alike to be wild with me.
So, what does wild mean? By definition it means “living or growing in the natural environment; not domesticated or cultivated” or “uninhabited, uncultivated, or inhospitable.” Synonyms include fierce, untamed, ferocious and natural.
Let us be wild. Be wild when society tells you how to act, how to talk, how to dress, how to eat, how to travel, how to think and how to be. Be wild in your decisions and your experiences. Be wild in the face of adversity and struggle. Be wild in telling your stories and sharing your love. Be wild in the pursuit of being exactly who you are and listening to your own voice and your own voice alone. Be wild so that you can live the good life and fight the good fight.
