I am a software engineer, mother, lover of science, music, boardgames, learning, reading, climbing, and hiking, and occasionally fancy myself an artist... Some of those things I get to enjoy much more often than others.
Above video is a work in process. Butterfly drawing is by me, refined in photoshop, animated in 3ds Max, final composition in Panda3d.

If I could take all my parts with me when I go somewhere, and not have to say to one of them, "No, you stay home tonight, you won't be welcome," because I'm going to an all-white party where I can be gay, but not Black. Or I'm going to a Black poetry reading, and half the poets are antihomosexual, or thousands of situations where something of what I am cannot come with me. The day all the different parts of me can come along, we would have what I would call a revolution.
