Rather than be content with just being a member on dA, she has tirelessly committed herself to helping out around the place. She comments often on deviations and runs more clubs than you can shake a stick at. Amidst all this, she also finds time to work as a carer for people with severe disabilities.

I can't believe five years have passed so quickly without you, Pip--and yet, they still seem slow when compared to the years I had with you. Wherever you are, I hope I'm making you proud.
Creidimis sa Tsíoraíocht.
I ache when the world does, and maybe that's a bit too much ego, and maybe that's just a little too close to cowardice, but it's the putting in rather than the putting on that makes another's shoes uncomfortable. Empathy isn't a promise to feel as another feels, to have walked as another's walked. Empathy is the understanding that I ache, and you ache, and it's the aching where we meet--rather than the road that brought us to it. I don't know your pain, and you don't know mine, but that's okay. We don't have to share an injury to acknowledge a wound.
You may call me Bill or Pip. I'm a twenty-something editor, a self-professed punctuation junkie with a penchant for words, and a Catholic. I am also a very private, shy homosexual living my day-to-day between New York City and Oxford.|
I like talking about sex, politics, books, relationships, religion, grammar, philosophy, literature, music, baseball and football. I have an old obsession with black and white movies and anything noir, and a true appreciation for Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, and Cary Grant.
We'll probably get on well if you know who Robbe-Grillet is, enjoy Borges or Nabokov, can admit to liking Oscar Wilde, hate James Joyce and John Steinbeck, like Keats, appreciate Donne, and believe that Baldwin and Capote are among the greatest American writers in literary history.
Or, if reading isn't your thing, hit me up with a "Hello!" I welcome random IMs and notes.
