"I decided to return to the library and see what I could learn there. Besides, I like libraries. It makes me feel comfortable and secure to have walls of words, beautiful and wise, all around me. I always feel better when I can see that there is something to hold back the shadows." -- Roger Zelazny, Nine Princes in Amber
My journal about life, writing, and whatever strikes my fancy to put here. This is a fandom journal, and a writing journal, and a real-life journal, so anyone who reads it should expect to find a mixture of those things. Anyone is welcome to friend me, no need to ask -- although if you do, I will almost certainly say yes and friend you back.
"In the contemporary world, where things fall apart and the center cannot hold, you need to imagine a community where there is no center." -- John Green, Brotherhood 2.0
My various IMs are all contact list only, but I'm generally happy to add people; just ask.

"I am coming to think that language is in charge of everything. I am coming to think that there is no reality outside language. It doesn't matter what it is, really, as long as we know what to call it." -- Jon Carroll, 8/5/1998
