i'm a bit of an enigma, as are -nearly- all human beings, living in my own personal microcosm and tries to find beauty in all things. i walk or ride my bike to get from place to place whenever feasible, and the concept of watching much of what is on television (especially commercials) disturbs me. i consider myself to be a very spiritual person, not necessarily religious in the traditional sense. personalizing and/or repurposing discarded or used things instead of buying new is extremely important. i'm almost certain i will never, nor ever desire to, "grow up"; there is a difference between being responsible and mature and losing one's inner child. i also write only in lower-case letters, not because of laziness but purely for aesthetic reasons.
