About

I am a Canadian currently residing in Vancouver, British Columbia. I have previously lived in Ontario and Alberta. After studying English Literature and Religious Studies (that would be the secular study of religion, sort of like anthropology) at the undergraduate level, I became a graduate student in English Literature at the University of British Columbia. I got my Masters in 2012.

Reading and writing consume a lot of my time. I have some minor fiction, poetry, and academic publications. I am Christian; I attend Anglican churches generally, though should the Anglican church collapse I would probably start going to United churches. I am wary of more specific denominational identities. My interests are eclectic, which you'll note reading my blog. Examples include conjoined twins, flatworms, and obscure literary forms. I am obsessed with moral action (by which I almost always mean compassion), with animals, and with the theory of interpretation.

I started this blog as a way to self-publish fiction, poetry, and opinion pieces. (In truth I started it because my brother had an art blog which I thought was so cool and I wanted one too.) Over time it became more autobiographical as I attempted to keep friends and family abreast of my life, but Skype took over that function in my life. Now I mainly muse about ethics, aesthetics, culture, philosophy, and religion. For reasons I don't want to get into I now only post sporadically. The sidebar should help you navigate.

If there are two things that have really changed over time, they are that I have become more of a feminist and that I have increasingly begun to value uncertainty.
