fox in socks
13 September 1983
In high school I was one of those bookish types that spent all my free time in the art room. Now I work in a library and study art history.

I'm sporadic in my interests. My interest in things comes in waves - I'll be passionate about a certain activity for a while, then neglect it for weeks before I go back to it again.

My life revolves around cooking good food, spending time with my husband, dance rehersals, and reading. When I have the time I like to sew.

I have strong ideals which inform the manner in which I live my life - I can't always live up to these ideals.

I am trying to live the life that I dream of having, instead of waiting to do it later.
