About meI love books, music, films and writing. I'm Jewish, bisexual, non-binary and polyamourous. My stamping ground is a cross between a library, art gallery and a big mess. I hope someday to publish the sort of lyrical poems and songs that are the tid-bits in my diaries. Who knows?

About my libraryEverything. I need escapism. I love knowledge. I love finding topics that make me exclaim in jubilation upon their discovery. It's what books are for - I love how there are ones for every mood + every occasion, hopefully there will always be something for everyone.
