The darkness has not overcome it.

Hmmm. Describing myself here is probably not very useful. I believe that we are what we do, but that is always so much more than a short bio or any at all bio can say. For the purpose of an introduction, I am a transplanted southern girl and just completed a masters degree in theology with emphasis in ethics and systematics. My thesis was a stewardship argument on freedom, free will and poverty in the US. I am enrolled at university of st. thomas/st. catherine university in a master of social work degree. I enjoy morbid humor, bagpiping and languages(although I don't claim talent). I read voraciously, including the back of pill bottles if i am desperate. I have an unreasonable love of monsters (including the small felines in my house).

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities. ~Dr. Seuss

Hate is not a Christian value.
