My youngest memories include tearing apart old radios to rebuild into new creations. Crafting rockets to fire to the heavens with my dad. Romping on the roof, to the horror of my mother, monitoring my weather station. <br /><br />As I came into my teens, I began to realize how strong a Victorian woman had to be in her time. I gleaned the wonders (kitchen skills, crafts, journal-keeping) and discarded the oppressive notions. <br /><br />Science fiction came into play at a young age too. My brain was a swirl of Bradbury, Asimov, Lovecraft, and dozens more. <br /><br />All these elements have been part of my life, since I was old enough to understand them. In recent years, &#39;steampunk&#39; has been a label attached to many aspects of my life. I don&#39;t mind. :) <br /><br />In Second Life, I &#39;engage&#39; Steampunk because it embodies who I am. In real life, I don&#39;t &#39;engage&#39; anything, really. I don&#39;t dress for cons or build cool ray guns. I do have goggles. *grin* In real life, I&#39;m just me, the bratty creator-child who romped on roofs - I&#39;m still her, but I leave the rooftop to others these days. Getting old, ya know. ;)Ceejay Writerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00147741781472359776noreply@blogger.com
