Welcome to Liamville
Go raibh míle maith agat!
(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 starting a film company and a publishing company.  

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.

Miss the Days

of the Drive-In?

Please do join my

group. It's for those of

us who are nostalgic,

and anyone else who

could be.

I can't help but think

how nice it would be

right now to be curled

up in front of the

campfire in the


somewhere, writing

poetry and absorbing

the wind and the

surroundings, hearing

the crickets, watching

the flames speak,

smelling the burning

pine that fills the air

with such sweet

aromas. mmmmmmm

My plans:
Thru-Hiking the

Appalachian Trail

Thru-Hiking the Long

Trail in Vermont

Might even attempt


Now on to other things:

About Me 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? ;)

    narcissus / daffodil

    Symbolizing rebirth and new beginnings, the daffodil is virtually synonymous with spring.  Though their botanic name is narcissus, daffodils are sometimes called jonquils, and in England, because of their long association with Lent, they’re known as the “Lent Lily.”  Lore connecting the daffodil to not only a sign of winter’s end but a lucky emblem of future prosperity is found throughout the world. In Wales, it’s said if you spot the first daffodil of the season, your next 12 months will be filled with wealth, and Chinese legend has it that if a daffodil bulb is forced to bloom during the New Year, it will bring good luck to your home.
    Have a wonderful Birthday !
