"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

This journal is mostly Friends Only.
Any public posts will be quizzes, quotes and idle randomness. It will also contain some Writer's Block questions and opinion posts on different subjects, like politics or healthy eating. I also make public my recent (2012) adventures in soap.
Private posts will contain everything else; my personal opinions, political rants, feelings and gripes. I'm wary on who I friend. If I don't accept your friend invitation, don't take it personal.

I'm an INFP (the Dreamer) on the Myers-Briggs personality test.

My creative writing is on jypsie_art. Select few are friended there. It has not been updated since 2011, so you're not missing much.

I'm a member of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) as of October 2014. My Dedicant Program (DP) essays are over at jypsie_druid. All the posts are druid related and public.


"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.... This is the artist's way of scribbling 'Kilroy was here' on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass." --William Faulkner, interview with Paris Review, 1956

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." ~ Anonymous

"I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center."
"A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved."
~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

"A "Christianity" pugilist commented upon a recent article of mine, grossly perverting the spirit of my pen. Still I would not forget that the pale-faced missionary and the hoodooed aborigine are both God's creatures, though small indeed their own conceptions of Infinite Love. A wee child toddling in a wonder world, I prefer to their dogma my excursions into the natural gardens where the voice of the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of birds, the rippling of mighty waters, and the sweet breathing of flowers. If this is Paganism, then at present, at least, I am a Pagan."
~ Gertrude Bonnin [Zitkala-Sa] (1876–1938) author and activist (Yankton Sioux) from "Why I am A Pagan," 1902

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."
~ Marcus Cole, Ranger to Franklin, A Late Delivery from Avalon - Babylon 5

"What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy."
~Game of Thrones

"Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic."
"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
~ Anais Nin

"The chief lesson I have learned in a long life is that the only way you can make a man trustworthy is to trust him, and the surest way to make him untrustworthy is to distrust him."
~ Henry L. Stimson

"A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity."
"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy."
~ Robert A. Heinlein

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
~ John Rogers
