Picture of the day
In the Conservatory

In the Conservatory is an 1879 oil painting by Édouard Manet which depicts a married couple, Manet's friends the Guillemets, in a conservatory in Paris then owned by painter Otto Rosen. Despite a hint of intimacy from the proximity of their hands, the couple appear separated from both each other and the conservatory around them. First exhibited in the 1879 Paris Salon, the painting is now held at the Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin.

About me[edit]

Hi! Welcome to my userpage.

Since its inception I have avoided joining Wikipedia because I knew, once registered, I would get lost in the labyrinth of it's pages. With the responsibility of six children, a mother has little time to indulge in personal projects for pleasure. But, after discovering the wikibooks project, I could resist no longer!

Research is something I've always enjoyed, so an encyclopedia is just the place for me. Sourcing reputable references for uncited material in existing articles is something in which I will be eager to participate ... not to mention the nagging temptation of other wiki projects, especially wikibooks, wikiversity, and commons.

I was once a spelling and grammar nazi, however I admit that internet forums and chat have made me somewhat lazy. My excuse? Unless I'm writing a thesis, I see no need to make casual conversation so prim and proper. Well, that excuse isn't going to cut it here so I'll just have to make an extra special effort.

On the most part my errors will likely be of a grammatical nature or simple typos, so feel free to help me out when I position that semicolon in the wrong place or forget to hyphenate, and don't hestitate in letting me know the error of my ways here. I am a staunch advocate of the Oxford comma.

I enjoy reading and writing, visual arts, web design, music, craft, astronomy and science, archaeology (including historical revisionism), anthropology, philosophy and theology, current affairs, conspiracy theories, television shows and movies, documentaries, stand-up comedy, and my favourite colour is purple. I am a pro-cannabis, human rights, anti-war, nonpartisan political activist, and a direct descendent of John Frith the martyr. I believe in spirituality, but not in institutionalised religion.

What in our society calls forth a Peace Pilgrim? Well dont forget the Korean War was on, the MacCarthy Era was at it's height. There was great fear at that time and therefore great apathy, because the safest thing to do is nothing. At any time, in any culture, where there is great apathy in the face of a crisis situation, a pilgrim is asked to step forth. And a pilgrim's job is to rouse people from their apathy and make them think.

Mildred Norman (Peace Pilgrim)

The worst thing to call somebody is "crazy". It's dismissive. I don't understand this person, so they're crazy. That's bullshit! People are not crazy. They are strong people...Maybe the enviroment is a little sick.

Dave Chappelle, Inside the Actor's Studio,12 February 2006

Guard your light and protect it. Move it forward into the world and be fully confident that if we connect light to light to light, and join the lights together of the one billion young people in our world today, we will be enough to set our whole planet aglow.

Hafsat Abiola

Motto of the Day, from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum.
("Therefore whoever desires peace, let him prepare for war.")
