Welcome to Liamville

(May you have a thousand good things! )
Let's see. Since I was last on here, many things have happened.
First and most important, a little over a year ago, I married the love of my life in a ceremony at a quaint country inn in the middle of gorgeous Vermont Fall foliage sharing our wonderful day with family and close friends.
Professionally, I stopped the library gig and started working for myself, running a publishing company and a back-of-book indexing company, in addition to honing my craft of winemaking.
Sorry I've been out of touch. I'll try to be better.
Everyone write to me, fill me in.
But on a personal note, an Update for everyone:
Me: Filmmaker, Screenwriter, Poet, playwright, journalist, Pisces, hate MTV, love coffeehouse music and jazz bars, Love backpacking and doing outdoorsy stuff. Animal rights and peace activist, feminist. I also love to quilt, as well as have dinner parties and play board games.

There is one theory which states that if ever anyone discovers
exactly what this universe is for and why it is here, it will
instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more
bizarre and inexplicable. There is a second theory which states
that this has already happened.

||Let's see. Well, I'm a Peace Oriented Free Spirited Bookworm. Yep. As far as taxes are concerned, I'm a librarian, a poet, a playwright and a journalist who loves being on-line, but I am somewhat happier with a typewriter. I'm a pisces, and if you met me and talked to me, it would be obvious. I am an INFP. If you know what that means, you'll appreciate it. If not, well, just ask. I love basically everything in life, any music you wouldn't find on MTV, the arts in general, dusty books of poetry no one has ever heard of. I'm a true leftist on basically every issue, particularly gender issues and animal rights, though the environment is up there close to the top. If you have any prejudicial feelings towards any particular groups of people, or don't like animals, please move on. With this administration, you can quickly (they're not even subtle about it) see civil rights flying out the window. I'm a strong believer in the idea of voting with your feet (and/or your passport). I feel at peace in the outdoors, particularly while backpacking and love to travel whenever and wherever I can. I'm half buddhist and half pagan. The Pagan part is certainly only as an amateur armchair kind of thing, while Buddhism is more where my spiritual life is focused.
I am in search of the long and winding road that leads me to somewhere peaceful in thsi world, where people are treated equal and violence is not used as a solution to violence and where people are judged by the size of their hearts and not the size of their bank accounts. Anyone has any suggestions? ;)
