about me

a dog with her head under the sofa

I work in a library and care about books and information being free. I have two dogs and foster a third. I'm getting married soon and I'm excited about it.

I'm interested in veganism, cooking, socialism, free software, making friends, science fiction, co-ops (or at least the idea of them), and cetera. I'm a Unitarian Universalist by church and an atheist/humanist by faith (or lack of it). I believe in the inherent goodness of people. I believe in the simple fact that we've made our bed, and we can remake it to be better.

My favorite children's book might just be The Little Old Woman Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. It's a lot of fun to read and it has a good message, namely: Don't be afraid of the unknown. It's probably just misunderstood.

I am in complete awe of the community here on ~.town. There's so much great art around town and I want to make some that's just as good. Everyone here inspires the hell out of me.

I have the general feeling that I wrote this in about two minutes and it shows

I cannot simply keep slumping down into a reflexive self-consciousness I need to simply be who I am and be myself surely there is a way to do that but somehow they never told me what to do
