I'm a freelance writer and editor. I also occassionally tend bar, which helps me get out of the house and balances my largely solitary pursuits.
One should say before sleeping, "I have lived many lives. I have been a slave and a prince. Many a beloved has sat upon my knees and I have sat upon the knees of many a beloved. Everything that has been shall be again." --From an essay by W.B. Yeats
