Introduction
I'm an eater of books, a Wonderdark pen, a greensteam-fond etherist, who enjoys a good mushroom steak and splash of plum wine in the library cabin of my metal balloon. A pleasure to make your acquaintance, I'm sure.

Reach me via The Azure Bird's house
(though I prefer to use ping.fm for reasons I shall not passionately list here. It is a loooong telling I fear.

A personal project independent of the Moorwing Archive, though it may be submitted for logging at a later date.


Greetings dearest readers, and even-tempered Bookeaters,

*cups hands about mouth* Did you click the orange-ish lines?! They work. Mostly. *dusts off dress, pulls the frock coat tighter to fend off the breeze, and returns to the Moorwing where... mushroom pastries and mulberry teacakes await* *Smiles pleased and heavy-lidded*

Thankyou good lady for the recommendations. I shall endeavour to have a closer look at them. May I be so bold as to suggest a book I quite enjoyed, The Anubis Gates, by Tim Powers.  I hope you are well, I must go as a cup of tea and my pipe are demanding my attention. Good evening, and farewell.

Thanks for the Bday blessings!
I'm not specifically trained, but my mother is also attuned to Reiki 3, and supposed to help me get there. I'm also looking into energy healing through dance, and my own massage-touch exploration :)

Whilst you figure that out, might I inquire as to how I can peruse a reviewer's copy of Wonderdark?
At 9:28pm on February 27, 2010, Jha Goh said…
Wonderful! Feel no obligation nor guilt if you can't make it, of course, but I daresay we would welcome the contribution of your company immensely.

Not only will I be attending, but the esteemed Ay-Leen and myself will be hosting a discussion on social issues in steampunk, and another showcase on non-Eurocentric steampunk. We would be delighted to have you as part of our coterie.
