With Atlanta's ball cast in men's eyes

Second-year grad student in human ecology at College of the Atlantic. I plan to focus on ecocriticism, astrobiology, intellectual history and the history of the biological sciences.

I don't post as many of my essays and poems as I used to, but when I stop to smell the tulips, occasional fruits of creative compositions and epigrams appear at treeofwoe. Perhaps as I become more streamlined with being a full-fledged member of academia, I'll feel compelled to post more personal compositions. Much like icetulip was a former chapter of my life, so have my juvenile poems and essays become.

I feel like an old soul. But I'm okay with that.

To love one's self is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
-Oscar Wilde
I work on this every day. Who doesn't dream of an all-consuming love affair? If it's to be, it's up to me. Loners will take over the world anyway.

I love establishing new correspondences with people near and far. Please add me if you like sending and receiving cards, letters and mix CDs.
