It occurs to me that I am America. I'm talking to myself again.

I'm trying to come to the point. I refuse to give up my obsession.

"But if you want to see the Northern Lights
You gotta lift up your head and
If you wanna have some kind of life
Decide you're not better off dead and
If you want to read the secret story written in your future
You better start to write it now..." --Gaia Consort

Sometimes I'm a basketcase, but usually the emotional baggage is just a hatbox.

Once upon a time, back in my basketcase days, I was a very unhappy, somewhat unhealthy person. I've done a lot of work on myself and my life to become a happier person, and now I have a damn fine life (modulo a little drama now and then). I'm not done writing my secret story, but large portions of it are already exactly as I would wish them to be. I'm a lucky, lucky woman and I try to never lose sight of that fact.

I have a very sweet and smart husband scorched_mirth, a brilliant nine-year-old daughter (aka La Jeune Hatbox), and many wonderful friends, all of whom I likewise adore.

Mostly I use pseudonyms for the family members...but the cat's name was Nate. He was over 17 years old when he passed away on Dec 12, 2007. He will be forever missed.

I used to be a technical writer for a large software company, but I have shifted careers. I am now certified as a personal trainer and a Pilates instructor. I have my own business, teaching movement instruction.

I have an advanced degree in Armchair Psychology from Google University.
