Everyone has a light and a dark side, I find, and I am no exception. If you’re looking for all the answers, I do not have them, I’m afraid. If you’re looking for someone who is happy all the time, I am not, but nor am I always shrouded in darkness. I’m just a girl, and as long as you don’t ask more of me than you would give of yourself, then we will be just fine. The opinions expressed in this little corner of my world are mine and I would thank you to respect that. I do not demand that you agree with, or even like me, and ask you to extend me the same courtesy. What you see is what you get… unless you take the time to look behind this mask. We all have them, and this one is mine.
I’ll be honest, I have the rather stereotypical poetic tendency of falling into month long binges of unhappy ranting. A by product of being bi-polar, I’m afraid. So, if you’re surprised when I don’t seem like the most cheery person on the face of the planet, do not say that you were not warned. I am a lover of dark literature and poetry, thus is will come a no surprise that I am into the gothic and punk subcultures. When I fall, I fall hard, and landing is never easy.
On the reverse, when I am happy, I am blissful. I truly do try and see the good in most, or all, people with whom I come into contact. I believe in the inherent good in man, and always try and believe that people are as beautiful as they have the potential to be. After all, we only live this life once, no matter what happens, or where we go, after. I try to be a good friend, even if I’m not all that skilled at it, and I am very protective of those I love. It's not always easy, but few things in life of value are, I find. When I love, I love completely, as I’m something of an emotional extremeist.
If I had to sum up my life philosophy in one phrase it would have to be, "To everything there is season and a purpose under Heaven." I believe strongly that all things happen for a reason and with purpose, all in their proper time. Just because I can't see the purpose does not mean that it is not there. I am a person of faith, but would never go so far as to say of religion. I believe that everyone must make their own way and follow what path seems best for them. It is their life, after all.
All in all, I am a simple person who enjoys the company of those I love, a good book, and a beautiful afternoon. I ask very little from life other than to be loved, to find peace, and the hope that just maybe I might be able to make the world a more beautiful place in which to live.
I've moved around a lot in recent years, but seem to have settled back hear my home town of Brighton, Michigan. It's kind of strange to be back home. There were times as I kid when all I wanted was to get as far away from this place as possible. Now, I realize that this was not such a bad place to have grown up, and I find myself glad to be back in the place I know so very well. There's something to be said about the familiar, that's for sure.
I enjoy a wide range of hobbies which include: table top gaming, the 'Game of Thrones' CCG, graphic design, photography, live action role playing, celtic knotwork, and sleeping. Yes, I consider sleep a hobby. *^_^* I would place my writing in the hobby catigory if it weren't something I take so seriously. However, as I have yet to be paid for it, I suppose a hobby it must remain.
I have two brothers (22, and 15), and a sister (13) who mean the world to me. I am blessed in that the four of us are all very close. I'm in the statistic of those whose parents are divorced, but it doesn't bother me. They still do a lot together, so I don't feel like I'm missing anything. I am engaged and plan to be wed sometime in 2006, probably in the summer since I want a beachside wedding. It would not be wise to have one of those in the fall in Michigan!

Dreaming in Darkness,
Born of the Night,
Child of the Ether,
Maid of Starlight.
Ponder the secrets,
The Night has to sing,
Learn of the beauty,
That Darkness can bring.
The night is not a thing to be feared, for it holds only what evil and horror that people bring with them. Rather, if we look upon it with new eyes seeking beauty, we just might find a realm of untold wonder and magic.
