I am fascinated with the process of creating art, enamored of words, and am always looking for creative people to befriend. I sing a lot, spin fanart yarn, watch ridiculous Korean television, and read myself silly.

The written word
Should be clean as bone,
Clear as light,
Firm as stone.
Two words are not
As good as one.
~ Anon.

Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~ G.K. Chesterton

... And what you thought you came for
Is only a shell, a husk of meaning,
From which purpose breaks only when it is fulfilled
If at all.
~T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding

...when she has "that look" in her eyes, it does not mean she is a vacant lot waiting to be filled. It means she is balancing a big cardhouse of ideas on a single fingertip, and she is carefully connecting all the cards using tiny crystalline bones and a little spit, and if she can just get it all to the table without it falling down or flying apart, she can bring an image from the unseen world into being. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
