me: just a girl that lives in california, massachusetts and italy, when she’s not traveling elsewhere. her business card says she is a “software engineer” … that pays the rent in cambridge and keeps her daughter in school. in practice though she spends her days translating, or putting on theatrical productions, or cooking, or going to film festivals… at night she works, or creates websites for her friends and family. and she has a bunch of orchids in the backyard in oakland. and a few near her desk there. and one on her back.
