I am interested in people who have great ideas or something original to say and who make me laugh. As Oscar Wilde said, "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you."
I spend my little free time reading, writing, watching movies, crocheting or on the internet invariably doing something or other. I have studied literature, foreign languages, education and enjoy academic discussions as well as the more mundane.
I quote a lot of people especially if I think their words are more salient or beautiful than my own. As my friend Cryderman wrote in a song, "I put you on a pedestal so I can't see/ It's the perfect height for you to kick me in the teeth."
I write poetry and prose and have a few blogs for those interested ilygirl.blogspot.com is my main poetry blog. It isn't the only thing I do but a major part of my life. If artistic, passionate, intense people aren't for you then we may not get along. If, however, you find women who know their own minds and have a lot to say interesting we may just hit it off. I am a good listener as well as gregarious so I enjoy conversations with all sorts of people on almost any topic
I could keep adding on here but I'd rather have a conversation with someone than have them judge me by just my profile. I could write many more things about myself but anyone worthy will be willing to put in the time to chat and become friends first.
"AND I am aware of my own attempts to ESCAPE
into other people
AND places BECAUSE they feel like parts of me
AND I know all the things that you might say
BUT I only dance now lightly through other people
AND always follow the path which leads back to me."
I am eclectic, mysterious, and cacophonous
