I'm using Twitter more often than LiveJournal these days, but LoudTwitter posts my Twitterings here once per day. I have tea parties at The Treacle Well; however, I usually post them here every day or so. Follow me down the rabbit hole and see what images inspire me by adding my we♥it feed, [profile] nullaluxhearts. Following A Secret Apothecary at [profile] nullalux_soup will give you access to my Tumblr, we♥it, and other web putterings in one fell swoop (but it's often a pool of tears, as it posts works in progress and feeds from LJ, Twitter, et al).

And again, when in the long course of time the story seems to belong to a rather distant past, I am afraid that I shall be regarded as a mere teller of fairy tales or listed among the tragic poets.
~Procopius, circa AD 500

Si qui forte mearum ineptiarum
lectores eritis manusque vestras
non horrebitis admovere nobis.

~Catullus, Carmen 14b

And in the sphere of thought, no less than in the sphere of time, motion is no more. The thing that you personally have long ago forgotten, or can easily forget, is happening to me now, and will happen to me again to-morrow. Remember this, and you will be able to understand a little of why I am writing, and in this manner writing.
~O. Wilde, De Profundis

We are as forlorn as children lost in the wood. When you stand in front of me and look at me, what do you know of the grief that is in me and what do I know of yours? And if I were to cast myself down before you and tell you, what more would you know about me than you know about Hell when someone tells you it is hot and dreadful?
~F. Kafka

Ennui! That monster frail!—With eye wherein
A chance tear gleams, he dreams of gibbets, while
Smoking his hookah, with a dainty smile. . .
—You know him, reader,—hypocrite,—my twin!
~C. Baudelaire

The present writer is nothing of a philosopher; he is, poetice et eleganter, an amateur writer who neither writes the System nor promises of the System, who neither subscribes to the System nor ascribes anything to it.
~S. Kierkegaard, trans. Lowrie

And is it True? It is not True.
And if it were it wouldn't do,
For people such as me and you
Who pretty nearly all day long
Are doing something rather wrong.
Because if things were really so
You would have perished long ago,
And I would not have lived to write
The noble lines that meet your sight.
~H. Belloc, Cautionary Tales for Children

Pray thee, take care, that tak'st my book in hand,
To read it well: that is, to understand.
~Ben Jonson, Epigrams I: To the Reader

Peek at photo entries here. Marvel at my mandibular mania here. Take the Classical Platitudes Quizhere. You might wish to peruse Twitter, Facebook, we♥it, Theriaca Fina, StumbleUpon, Flickr, Tumblr: The Treacle Well, Pandora, Plinky,, LinkedIn, or Dreamwidth: A Dreaming History. Places I rarely check, but there they are: MySpace, Tribe, Friendster, DeviantART, Coroflot, OKCupid!,, YouTube, Soup, HardcoreNerdity, care2, Plaxo, PBwiki, or MSN Spaces. My calendar is How doth the little busy bee... on Google. I listen to music on Pandora. I also have an ill-starred Vox, DeadJournal, Blogger profile, and a G-Blog page. If you are so inclined, you may sponser my LJ with a paid account here. Oh, and may I very sweetly eat your brain? NB: Emergency contact information is available to LJ Admin in a backdated (12.26.74), security-protected post.
