I am a Bard at heart and by trainingᚇ, and have been wandering in and out of Wikipedia since June 2013. As one can probably guess from my work regarding the Glass Flowers and the related pages, I am loosely affiliated with the Harvard Museum of Natural History;I suppose you could say that I am an amateur historian volunteering my time for them. (If you wish to know my right name, you will have to visit the Glass Flowers exhibit and hope that I am there - in which case I will gladly give you a tour)
