Dandelyon's Worlds

External Services:
Right now, I am a paralegal/legal assistant seeking work.

I'm also a writer, artist, and musician.

My Life in Haiku (well, mostly) is on Twitter, where I'm also Wyld_Dandelyon.

As a kid, I wanted to know everything; reluctantly, I had to accept that’s impossible (and even have found that there are some things I'm perfectly happy to never know), but my interests remain wide. I think this is a large part of why I found Anthropology fascinating when I discovered it in college—everything about people and what they’re interested in (i.e. everything) is pertinent to that discipline. My life has also been shaped by the Muse of the Creative Arts, whose siren call ensures that I am always in the middle of at least several projects. The variety of things I am working on at any particular time is, sadly, limited by various factors, not least of which is the need to work full time. (Unfortunately, the Muse doesn’t provide even the most basic necessities for her devotees, much less computers, musical instruments, and art supplies. And I won't mention health insurance. Or maybe I will, in a post somewhen.)

If you like what you read, and want to encourage me to put more time into one or another of my projects, please let me know. Requests from people who sponsor me will get priority!

Friending policy: I'm trying to be careful how many journals I officially put on my reading list; I don't want reading LJ to take over all my time for writing. However, I love to meet new people. If you want to tempt me to spend time in your journal, please feel free to comment in mine, so I get to know you.

Edited entries: I do edit to fix typos, but lately, I seem to be editing nearly every entry to get rid of stupid [input][/input] html code that keeps cropping up, looking unsightly, and doing nothing useful. I'm guessing it's some interaction of the latest Firefox edition with LJ's coding, and I hope it goes away soon! *grumble* Oh, and in series, especially fiction, I go back when a new post is entered to add links so new readers can move quickly from chapter to chapter. The bulk of my edits are routine and very dull; I'm not going to ETA these routine and boring things.
