About Me


To be Free, utterly, truly.


Four years in the academic ivory tower. Now I'm itching to roll around in the mud at a farm, and climb mountains, and sail, and knit, and dive, and paint, and experience everything in the real world. I want to meet all kinds of people and have adventures. I want to eschew conventionality (even while using words like eschew. . . oh I'm so far gone). Mostly I want to believe in things again, and there's no better time than the present for all of us to redefine reality.
