I read, I write, I make art.

“If you can live with an
occasional glitch, then
go for speed.”
Databases are a lot like life.
When you get stability, things
tend to slow.
Long ago I gave up on
cravings
for bright red corvettes
and dangerous men.
“Commits and rollbacks” are the
hallmarks of a sturdy database.
I’m committed all right.
But I haven’t done a rollback in years.

About Me
Fiction writer, coffee addict, cat owner...doesn't every "about me" say that, usually with a cutesy photo? I don't do cutesy. So I'll add to the list: I'm short, stubborn, very unfashionable, clumsy (typing this with a wounded wrist, always have bruises), opinionated, and a humanist. BS degree in Journalism '83, certificate in technical writing, addicted to reading, can't boil water without setting off the smoke alarm, non-skinny, politically active (and annoyingly loud about it). Love comfort, hate camping, wouldn't want to live in a world where chocolate and caramel hadn't been invented.
