"Man lives his life in sleep, and in sleep he dies."
George Ivanovich Gurdjieff.


“I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own.”- The Prisoner

“If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I'd still swim. And I'd despise the one who gave up.”- Abraham Maslow.

“Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment. To such an extent indeed that one day, finding myself at the deathbed of a woman who had been and still was very dear to me, I caught myself in the act of focusing on her temples and automatically analyzing the succession of appropriately graded colors which death was imposing on her motionless face.”- Claude Monet

"I'd like to be able to tell you that I enjoy being inappropriate, but unfortunately I have no idea when I am." - me

"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess. "- Oscar Wilde

"There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it. "- Oscar Wilde.

Yeah good old Oscar gets two quotes.
He deserves it because when people like him can write for you there is no need to write for yourself.

I am currently a work in progress.
I write passably good songs and stories but Stuff™ happened to me a few months ago and I am rebooting both my hardware and software.
It is safest for me to use the words of others until I can be sure that my own words hold true meaning.
I am a friendly and well meaning soul though and wish nothing more than to embrace life like a lover and drink in all the wonders of the world.
Adventures are my most favourite thing in the world and since life is an adventure, I am essentially a very happy bunny.
What a fortuitous coincidence!

I love reading about other peoples' adventures, so, dear friends, keep writing and I shall read...

I also keep a semi professional blog here: http://lizzielowlife.blogspot.com/
and I write about my Synaethesia condition here: http://lizzie-swarf.dreamwidth.org/
I write about my Syn because it is so under recognised and i wanted to change that because I am one of the very few people who can. Since I have it to the point that I am about to be studied for medical science!

I am also the lead singer in a pretty little band. We were quite famous once upon a time but life kinda got in the way: http://www.myspace.com/swarf
