So, I'm a person who Daniel deemed cool enough to recieve a page of her own.
I guess I'll start with an introduction.
I have a minor obsession with things feline. My name reflects this fact. Neko means "cat" while Haya, in my influent mind, meant quick. I was later corrected by more knowledgeable human - the way I wrote the words Haya means "soon to become". So, "soon to become a cat". I'm cool with that meaning.
I like to write. I won't say I'm a writer because in my mind "writer" has very specific meaning. In my mind, a "writer" is someone who is paid for their art. "Writer" can't be applied to everyone so simply, like "murderer". People through the word around a lot - "Don't murder animals!" "Don't murder innocent dogs and cats" - but really "murderer" seems to have the connotation of a person killing another person. At least in my small world. Anyway, I digress. I like to write - that's the point. I enjoy poetry and short stories, but my two current projects are a children's book and a novel about traveling and [erotomania | http://www.angelfire.com/ga/random/erotomanic.html]. Because the two obviously go together.
I'm an aspiring linguist. (Make the cunning linguist joke and I will smite thee. I have a key for smiting on my keyboard. Test me and consider yourself smote.) Particularly I'm interested in the history of the Indo-European language family and would love to specify in the Celtic language branch. Although being a linguist is not synonymous with being a polyglot, I would like to think of myself as one. I speak English fluently, Spanish very well (not as fluently as I would like to), French, Japanese, Irish and small amounts of various other languages.
I run a small business that survives mostly by word of mouth. I do art (or something like it) for money. I am, in own not-so-humble opinion, better at drawing, but I prefer making dolls. I'm hoping to be able to add clothing and soap to the list of things I can make soon. My mother, who is a professional artist, taught me much of what I know and encouraged my forays into all things creative.
I live a rather nomadic life. As of right now it's not as nomadic as I'd like, but I'm still enjoying myself. I have visited several countries and lived in two different one. I hope one day to live as the gypsies do, or at least television portrays them. I have yet to tire or the road and all the secret places it leads.
Hmm, well, I meant for this to be a short post so I shall stop before my introduction becomes an autobiographical opusculum.
Good night, good night...
