    • Biography: I am best explained as a paradox of astronomical proportions. I rarely take the time to understand myself, so how can I expect anyone else to? I love heated conversations, silly talk, the implied, walking on the edge occasionally, though I shrink to safety in the conservative in zone. I like to think of myself as intelligent, though I am the first to admit that I don't know much. I love learning & being turned on to new things--music, books, films, experiences. I LOVE magnetic poetry, poetry of all types, & helping others find that love of word, especially those who say they hate the form. Okay, this isn't a bio. But aren't those supposed to be written by others, anyway?

        • Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas (although I loathed this film the first time I saw it because I didn't have the background info--like who hunter S.

          wow--too many to list--i like music that reminds me of moments suspended in time; like Ace of Bass can just take me back to high school in a heartbeat or Right Said Fred's I'm Too Sexy transports me immediately to late adoloscence and love's first blush, & Hotel California will always make me feel the best kind of high--on life. But these aren't my favorite songs exactly, they just explain why this sort of categorization is so difficult. Jef's noodling & crooning--sexy fingers & voice!


        • to be honest, & this is embarrassing, my favorite shows are silly fluff--like American Idol, CSI, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, Real World, The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heroes, Lost---I bought in & good. I am really liking the new 90210, House, 24, Desperate Housewives, Hell's Kitchen, Scrubs right now, too.

          Didn't watch much t.v. until after college....

        • my sister for passing before me; for bravely facing both disease and ridcule all the while keeping her faith

        • "Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture.”--Ginsberg

          “Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.”--Ginsberg

          "Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.”--Ginsberg

          "The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That's what poetry does.” --Ginsberg

          "The fact to which we have got to cling, as to a lifebelt, is that it is possible to be a normal decent person and yet be fully alive.”--Ginsberg

          "There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go, no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone”--Jerry Garcia

          "You need music, I dont know why.It's probably one of those Joseph Campbell questions, why we need ritual. We need magic and bliss, and power and myth, and celebration and religion in our lives and music is a good way to encapsulate a lot of it.” --Jerry Garcia

          "They know. They just don't want to tell you.”--Robert Hunter


          “...Hush
          The moon is
          three days dark.
          Nothing more
          will fly tonight.
          Good Teqiulla.
          Bad salt.”--Robert Hunter


          "If I had a ghost living on my street. I would try try to stay alive, and offer him some meat!”--Trey Anastasio

          "Think for yourself and question authority”--Timothy Leary

          "Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”--Timothy Leary

          "The universe is an intelligence test”"--Timothy Leary

          "You can always pick up your needle and move to another groove.”--Timothy Leary

          "To achieve the impossible; it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought.”--Tom Robbins

          "Our Similarities bring us to a common ground; Our Differences allow us to be fascinated by each other”--Tom Robbins

          "There is no such thing as a weird human being, It's just that some people require more understanding than others”--Tom Robbins

          "Religion is not merely the opium of the masses, it's the cyanide.”--Tom Robbins

          "We're our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.”--Tom Robbins

          "Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.”--Tom Robbins

          "It is never too late to have a happy childhood”--Tom Robbins

          "If little else, the brain is an educational toy.”--Tom Robbins


        • writing, waxing poetic, playing mind games, playing dumb, painting, being a good mother, embracing the non-conventional, having pointless conversations
          reading widely & vastly--I'll read any author once--it's the good ones that keep me coming back; hiking, taking pictures, laughing deeply & un-selfconsciously, meeting new people & devouring their life stories--really getting to know them; socializing, being funny (trying), teaching my babies how to live with the right amount of fear & daring......

Toward what city will I travel? What wild houses do I go to occupy? What vagrant rooms and streets and lights in the long night urge my expectation?...Allen Ginsberg 1954: "Siesta in Xbalba"
