Bio

This is the chronicle of my day to day life with some poetry and fiction interspersed (most of the latter is friends-only for copyright reasons).

You can read about my professional work on my web log.

What does Lepidopterotic mean?

"People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive." -- Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth.

"There are only two worthwhile things to leave behind when we depart this world of ours: children and art." -James Lapine, Sunday In The Park With George

"There's no normal life, Wyatt. There's just life." -- Doc Holliday in Tombstone.

"The opposite of war isn't peace - it's creation!" -- RENT by Jonathan Larson.

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -- Jack Kerouac, as quoted by tantrumgalore
