About Me mostly housebound book obsessive, struggling with deep depression, chronic pain, overwhelm and isolation. if you've read this far, you'll understand why i'll refuse your offer of friendship. not because i'm antisocial, but as an act of self-preservation.
  Introduce yourself to cara
  Lifestyle
Pets 1 new rescue cat (welcome bella!!), 1 dog who's a natural comedian, 1 cat who mostly hates people  
Activist Aspirations Casual
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions my gods are pratchett and gaiman  
Eating Habits Almost anything... :)  
Wild Fact About Me the wildest things i ever did weren't very wild at all - shaving all my hair off, and getting 3 tattoos on my wrists. i've forgotten the most exciting thing i've ever done - i emigrated to australia from england with my parents when i was 3
My Philosophy everyone in the world should have the ability to read, whether or not they actually choose to indulge in the habit afterwards. love isn't words, but actions. there are no small acts of kindness
What Gives Me Hope the small acts of kindness that most people never see; that marijuana and prostitution will one day be legalised in australia; that people continue to love who they love even when it makes them a political target
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by i'd implement literacy programs everywhere, so that reading became as natural as breathing. i'd also revoke the right of private citizens to own and use guns of any kind.
What/who changed my life and why my mum. she not only gave me the greatest gift when she encouraged me to read (as well as ensuring that i'd never have any money!!), she has supported me through chronic illness for nearly 20 years. she's the reason i know that love isn't words, but action, and it's way more fierce than soft!!
What Bugs Me the cult of celebrity, "a writer at the height of his powers", certain books being deemed "worthy", the disappearance of community, mobile phones EVERYWHERE, arrogance, rudeness, reality tv, social media  
Passions cats, chocolate, family, reading  
Inspirations neil gaiman, terry pratchett, dorothy parker, my mum, the unconditional love of animals, jim henson, freda kahlo  
What Scares Me donald trump, religious and political fundamentalists, cruelty, ann widdecombe, wilful ignorance, misogeny  
  Favorites
Role Models  
Quotation "pain is inevitable. suffering is optional"

"i used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. then i thought, 'what if life WERE fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' now i take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." - marcus cole, "babylon 5"
Interests tv and movies, music, mythology, cuddles with animals, interesting conversation, writing in my journal, reading
