I’ve been addicted to the things from the moment I learned to read. Growing up without a TV meant that, at least until the internet came along, if I wanted to be entertained, informed, or edified I reached for a book. I am currently reading about half a dozen books, which is about average.
Six years ago the idea that I could dance, and would do so willingly and publically, would have seemed absurd to me. But the first time I let loose and did what the music told me to do I realized I had discovered an essential part of me that had merely lain dormant until then. Now I get a little crazy if I don’t have a chance to dance periodically. It is my catharsis and my communion with the divine.
Pretty, pretty music. Falls into that category that I term “transcendent music” – music which transform my mood, lift me out of the mundane, and lift up my spirit.
The most important quality in a person. Honesty is my core value; it defines who I am. I don’t lie, and I don’t understand people who do. This has many implications. It is the cause of my desire for transparency. And it fuels my need to be a wholly integrated and consistent person – as within, so without.
When of those enduringly wonderful films, like The Princess Bride. Good clean fun. Plus Jennifer Connolly is hot, and so is David Bowie.
As sailors are drawn to the sea, so am I drawn to the mountains. They are in my blood. I get antsy if I’m somewhere that isn’t at least a little lumpy. I hope to someday live in the mountains.
Love is not a zero-sum game.

…at least.” – Over the Rhine
Bouncy music that makes me happy. Most recent acquisition: Ministry of Archers by Joy Electric.
At the core of my being, pushing and me and prodding me throughout my life, has been a need to transcend. To lift up and spread out and become something bigger and more glorious than I am. To escape the bondage of mundane life, trivialities, and petty concerns. To live on a higher plane concurrent with the physical one – one foot in heaven and one foot on earth. And to to drag every last one of you up there with me, and stand with hand in hand you and survey a world more beautiful than we have ever imagined.

You want to live somewhere lumpy. 😀
yeah, hi, you don’t know me, but i’m a friend of Lady Mandrake’s. anyway, i read your thing because i was bored. so, your view of dancing, i just heard that in my world music class, and realized how many times i was dancing at the drumming circle at FSG, that i felt realllly close to my Gods. so, right on! and Joy Electric was just at or is going to be at York College. ok…bye now.
Hey there. Thanks for stopping by!
Yep, that’s where I picked up the album 🙂 I’ve been listening to them for years, and I was pretty thrilled when I heard (like an hour before they played) that they were in York.
