About me

Occupation Librarian
Location Reno, NV, United States
Introduction We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world forever, it seems. -Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy. I liked the first line because I've always had music in my life, in one form or another. But as I read the rest of the first stanza, it seemed to fit me- to match my actions and moods as I grew up. I was usually the one with my head in the clouds and nose in a book, and I loved to sit by streams alone making up my own fairylands, and floating leaf boats on the water imagining they were much grander with sails full and pulling... This blog is just an extension of my thoughts, and maybe a hint of some daydreams too...
Interests Reading, swimming, running, biking, Yes-triathlons! Out-door-sy stuff. :)
Favorite Movies While You Were Sleeping, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Office Space, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, I'll have to add more here later, can't seem to think of them all right now...
Favorite Music Rock, Jazz, Heavy Metal, Classical, Musicals, Funk, Pop, some New Age Techno-y stuff... Pretty much everything except Country and Rap.
Favorite Books How about favorite authors- too many books to narrow it down here: 1) Robin McKinley 2) Elizabeth Haydon 3) Phillip Pullman 4) Garth Nix 5) Gail Carson Levine 6) J. K. Rowling 7) Jonathan Stroud 8) Beverly Cleary 9) Paul Stewart 10) Herbie Brennan. That's 10, so I think I'll stop there, even though there are so many more... (Notice that all of these are children's authors?)

Have you ever seen a monkey swing this way and that, and that way and this way and this way and that? That way and this way and this way and that way and that way and this way and this way and that?
