About Me These days, I generally appear to myself as someone who is slowly (but now...thru Grace...apparently 'surely') awakening from the illusions of Samara to the seemingly ever present joy of Leela, AND in spite of all too frequent displays of arrogance and other at least equally unpleasant character flaws, I think I (more than less) have a basically good heart. And, to quite a large extent, I like myself, finally.

However, I certainly have not been, nor will I ever be, mistaken for a saint, and am quite aware that I partake to some greater or lesser degree of/in every human characteristic (as it appears to me we all seem to) negative, as well as positive.

Also, I feel compelled to mention that I don't consider ANY of the information I've entered, or checked, anywhere on this profile as necessarily an absolute, true expression of 'dani.' Rather, I think much of it is little more than an at least mild exaggeration, generalization and expression of the ego...mine of course. But, oh well and Cie La Vie, aye?

    On the day you were born it was a very special day
    The world was blessed in a most unusual way
    May the magic that brought you to Earth
    Shine all around you on the day of your birth.
