I love fantasy, science fiction, poetry, Shakespeare, musicals, Tchaikovsky, Mass Effect, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, old books, Disney, and Daoism, in addition to a host of other interesting things :) I studied Chinese philosophy, Japanese and French language, and Renaissance History and Literature in undergrad.
"In all this suffering we must live as if we were dancing, following the heavenly and the natural, climaxing in not knowing we are burned up. This is to nourish our lives. Nourishment occurs not high in the misty mountains away from the world's suffering, but in the very midst of suffering."
