"Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne."
My name is Dawn.
I am an individual.
One of many.
Do I like myself? Yes
Do I like life? Yes
To live well is to make a better death.
The following was taken from a letter written by the Marquis de Sade to his wife. If you are familiar at all with the Marquis, you'll know he spent much of his life in prisons and asylums for "excessive libertinage."
My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who lives his life for others! My manner of thinking stems straight from my considered reflections; it holds with my existence, with the way I am made. It is not in my power to alter it; and were it, I'd not do so. This manner of thinking you find fault with is my sole consolation in life; it alleviates all my sufferings in prison, it composes all my pleasures in the world outside, it is dearer to me than life itself. Not my manner of thinking but the manner of thinking of others has been the source of my unhappiness. The reasoning man who scorns the predjudices of simpletons necessarily becomes the enemy of simpletons; he must expect as much, and laugh at the inevitable. A traveler journeys along a fine road. It has been strewn with traps. He falls into one. Do you say it is the traveler's fault, or that of the scoundrel who lays the traps? If then, as you tell me, they are willing to restore my liberty if I am willing to pay for it by the sacrifice of my principles or tastes, we may bid each other an eternal adieu, for rather than part with those, I would sacrifice a thousand lives and a thousand liberties, if I had them. These principles and these tastes, I am their fanatic adherent; and fanaticism in me is the product of the persecutions I have endured from my tyrants. The longer they continue their vexations, the deeper they root my principles in my heart, and I openly declare that no one need ever talk to me of liberty if it is offered to me only in return for their destruction.
---Marquis de Sade

I dream a lot.
I like to write, I just don't do it often.
I like to paint, and I do that more.
Where do my beliefs lie? Wherever I choose to lay them.
Am I an angry person? Sometimes. I have a nasty temper that I try to keep under control.
It doesn't always work.
But I try.
I've become a little wary of putting too much of my life out for the public, so I keep a lot of my little quirks to myself and a small group of people who I deem worthy.
I'm continuously fascinated, drawn and repelled by the human condition. However, I'm a relatively sociable person, as long as you don't piss me off by being stupid.
I see a lot of things.
I'm sure I don't see even more.
Hopefully, I will.
I wish for time.
P.S. and I mean this.....you should be having FUN on this site. You can take anything to seriously, and it seems to be a real problem around here. I like meeting people with the same interests, and that's why I joined here in the first place. If you use it to vent your feelings of helplessness in real life by rating low for silly reasons, then more's the pity. I give what I get, and that's the whole of it. Give and ye shall receive. And if you have less content on your profile and STILL decide to rate me low, don't expect me to match what you've given....I might go lower on general principles:)
Fortunately, ratings don't affect real life, at least they certainly shouldn't! And where it COUNTS, my rating is as high as I could hope it to be.
I am truly a blessed person.
It could ALWAYS be worse:)
