Who am I? I suppose it depends who you ask: I am a mother, a technologies professional, and a staunch, devoted force of nature on behalf of friends and family. I say I am all of the above and then some…
Writer, philosopher, Buddhist, thinker, coffee drinker, renaissance woman, part-time advocate, Samaritan, ass-kicker, quirky, nerdy, borderline dorky geekazoid, idealist, nomad, night-owl, and unnaturally stubborn to boot.
A native Atlantan, I relocated to Seattle in 2008. When I’m not busy with work or evening classes, I enjoy creating digital art, music, poetry (slam poet, retired), prose, or roaming about town with friends to discover and enjoy new things.
Update, 12-20-09, quoted from an entry placed here; referenced for relevancy:
It occurs to me from time to time that anyone arriving here without personal knowledge of me will come away with a dramatically different view than someone who sees or interacts with me. I spent about half a second considering that when I undertook the consolidation effort and ultimately decided to shrug at it. You know the old saying? “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter, don’t mind.” That pretty much sums it up. The way I have it figured, folks are going to think what they like.
Of course this is just me giving it a brief second thought. Second-guessing, I suppose. Now that I’m deliberately flying without the veil and being all defiant about it. You know the feeling, right? Somewhere between caring what people will think and reminding yourself that you shouldn’t have to? Ah, idealism. Heh.
Anyway, if the ocean is a metaphor for life then this place is a tidal dumping ground. If you take anything you read here as more than the moment’s flotsam, you’re going to wind up very confused about me.
I mention it because I get the feeling I’m going to be setting a good deal of flotsam here in the next little while (as well as parsing through and putting up more of the old archive). Consider it “fair warning” to say all the above and then, in serious tone add, “There’s a big difference between thinking you know me and using something placed here as if it’s more than it is.”
If you’re someone I see or interact with and you are curious, ask. If you’re “a random visitor”, you can still ask – you’ll just need to hit the ‘Contact’ page to do so.
