I am a feminist of the vaguely postmodern kind. I am extremely liberal, politically, and I am an ELCA Lutheran who is pro-choice and supportive of alternative and homosexual lifestyles. I consider myself to be somewhat of an existientialist in the vein of Frankl. I believe the best way to express religious devotion is to help other people and make the world a better place. I badly want to do this, but sometimes I am unsure how to make a difference. I also want to start an artistic movement based on Baudrillard's ideas on seduction. I have probably misspelled "Baudrillard".
I like writing profile summaries, for some reason. I'm not expecting anyone I know to read this.
I am a musician, a liberal democrat, and distracted
