About Me

My name is Diana.

I live in the past and future, but give little attention to the present.

I enjoy writing, sleeping, thinking. I like having structure, but I don’t always follow it. I am in love with the imperfections of humanity, and find myself rebelling at the thought of absolutes. I try to learn from anything that can teach me about beauty. I only hold on to lasting friendships, and keep few casual acquaintances. Above all else, I can always rely on myself to do what I believe is right.

My lifelong dream is to write stories that people will enjoy and remember fondly.

Feel free to stay a while.

Here is me, having recently accomplished my life goal of scooping fish at a Japanese festival.
