"Grief can destroy you --or focus you. You can decide a relationship was all for nothing if it had to end in death, and you alone. OR you can realize that every moment of it had more meaning than you dared to recognize at the time, so much meaning it scared you, so you just lived, just took for granted the love and laughter of each day, and didn't allow yourself to consider the sacredness of it. But when it's over and you're alone, you begin to see that it wasn't just a movie and a dinner together, not just watching sunsets together, not just scrubbing a floor or washing dishes together or worrying over a high electric bill. It was everything, it was the why of life, every event and precious moment of it. The answer to the mystery of existence is the love you shared sometimes so imperfectly, and when the loss wakes you to the deeper beauty of it, to the sanctity of it, you can't get off your knees for a long time, you're driven to your knees not by the weight of the loss but by gratitude for what preceded the loss. And the ache is always there, but one day not the emptiness, because to nurture the emptiness, to take solace in it, is to disrespect the gift of life."

I really wish I drew more often. I love to draw, but a combination of chronic wrist pain and lack of confidence keeps me from doing much. And it seems that when I do draw, I rarely develop something like I used to. I'm going to work on that. :)

Besides that, I'm a college graduate, working in the clinical psychology field, but wanting to pursue a PhD in Neurological Psychology. I love brains. :D Until I go to grad school, I think I'll play more video games. :eager:

As for art, my brother is my hero - he's an AMAZING artist - and Sailor Moon inspired me to start drawing years ago, starting with an anime style. Since then I've branched out in terms of style, but I'll always have a very special place in my heart for Sailor Moon. :heart:

What else? um... I make awesome cakes.

Current Residence: Too far south, USA
Favourite genres of music: Industrial, Punk, J-pop, 80's Glam Rock, random stuff. Oh, let's just say variety is the spice of life. ^.^
Favourite styles of art: modern comic book, illustration, realism
Operating System: Mac OSX
Skin of choice: pale. I burn too easily to sit in the sun. :)
Favourite cartoon character: The Sailor Senshi (especially Moon and Uranus)
Personal Quote: "I can't control the wind, but I can adjust my sails."
