Who am I? I am all the things a woman can be. I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, an artist, a lover. I am strong and I am proud. I am a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Though you may come to know me well, you will never fully understand me.
Daedal, the mother:
I have two beautiful sons, ages 6 and 10, who are my entire world. I awake each morning to their smiling faces, and go to bed each night with the taste of their sweet kisses upon my lips. My heart continues to beat only for them.
Daedal, the daughter:
I am my mother's only surviving child. I was raised to believe that family is not only the most important thing in life, but also the only thing you need to get by in this harsh world. Having come from a large extended family, I know first hand what a family should be. They have seen me through the roughest times in my life.
Daedal, the sister:
I have two step-sisters, both older than I. One, I am at odds with the majority of the time, and the other is all that a sister should be.
Daedal, the aunt:
I have four wonderful nephews, a 14 year old, a 12 year old and 6 year old twins. I adore them as if they were my own children. Unfortunately, they live in a different state, so I don't get to see them nearly often enough.
Daedal, the artist:
I am an artist at heart. I am constantly looking for something new to create, usually a drawing, a poem, a story, or a graphic. My imagination runs rampant with the need to create beautiful things. If I don't express my creativity in some way each day, I become restless and miserable.
Daedal, the lover:
I am the kind of woman that most men want but few will find. I can be the girly girl, or I can be just one of the guys. I am perfectly content listening to someone talk about themselves without having to switch the conversation to myself, because, unlike many, I know it's not all about me. I am real, and honest, and loyal. Though I have loved often and fully, true love has managed to evade me. I know he's out there somewhere, searching for me as intently as I search for him.
Sir Thomas Alma-Tadema
I am a sensitive, impressionable dreamer with a concern for the plight of the world, a woman who isn't afraid to roll up her sleeves, jump in and get involved. I am a lover of freedom, a rebel with a cause, and a woman whose main desire is to live life to the fullest. I am good, idealistic, enthusiastic and warm-hearted. I am reflective, a deep thinker. I am interested in contributing to people's sense of well-being and happiness, and will put a great deal of effort and energy into tasks which I believe in.
I enjoy things that can excite my senses, or make me think. I enjoy good music, good conversation, good food. I love a challenge, and as such, will often set almost unreasonable goals for myself, just to see if I can push past my known limits. I live for the small things in life that most people don't notice. The warm smile of a friend. The spark of lust in a man's eyes as he passes by me on the street. The feel of flesh on flesh, however small, be it a handshake, a hug, a kiss, or something more passionate.
When people are busy rushing through life, trying to get on to the next thing, I take life slowly, savoring each moment to its fullest. While others overlook everyday things because of their simplicity, I marvel at their complexity. I can often be found spending hours on end staring off into the distance. I'm not daydreaming though, as most would tend to believe. No, instead I'm enjoying the beauty all around me. The rise of the mountain tops in the distant skyline. The lone falcon soaring overhead in search of prey. The shapes the clouds make in the bright blue sky. Watching people walk by, lost in conversation. In my quiet contemplation, I notice the details that most people overlook.
Some of my likes:
- Music, in all of its forms, from classical, to rock, to jazz, to hip hop. Music moves me, it inspires me, it touches something deep down inside of me.
- Fine art, paintings and sculptures and the like. I love to marvel at the beauty that others have created with their own hands.
- Theater, plays and operas, and yes, even movies. I can get lost in the storyline, feel what the characters feel. It's a wonderful thing.
- Family, friends and great conversations. What more could anyone ask for?
I could list my dislikes, but I don't see the point. I try to be accepting of all that is thrown at me, good or bad.

And that concludes my description. I hope you've enjoyed your peek into my world. If you want to try to figure me out, send me a message. If you want to carry on a decent conversation, free of chat/leet speak, send me a message. If you can't spell or speak in full sentences, don't bother sending me a message. I'm a writer. I've written since I was 5 years old. I see the art in letters coming together to form words, and words coming together to form sentences. I can't see the point in abusing the written word in that manner. It's pathetic and it disgusts me.
