Geek Chorus

Aikidoka, dreamer, seeker, general purpose geek
21 June 1979
You can't step in the same river twice. Carried by the current, learning to swim, beginning to hold my head up and look around.

I am a librarian in an all-online library. My expertise is developing along the lines of copyright, reference, and information literacy. I am toying with the incredibly alluring idea of becoming an instructional designer as well. That would make me a "blended librarian." Currently I am only a blended librarian when I drink on my work-from-home days.

I am a historian, and my specialty is U.S. slavery and abolitionism. In general, it's "the ways people use power, abuse power, resist power, subvert power, find power of their own." I am a bit invested (obsessive) in this family of topics because I was a bullying victim for many years.

My prevailing, driving fantasy is to have a homestead and a lot of time to myself with my land, my cats, my research and writing, and my partner.
