Non est ad astra mollis e terris via. -Seneca

“…he that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils: for time is the greatest innovator; and if time of course alter things to the worse, and wisdom and counsel shall not alter them to the better, what shall be the end?”
-Francis Bacon, “Of Innovations” (1625)

The thing that matters is not what they show me but what they hide from me, and above all, what they do not suspect is in them. -Robert Bresson

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

I am always dreaming, even when I'm awake. It never ends. -The Last Unicorn

About myself? A B.A. in criminology and criminal justice with a minor in psychology. Theoretically, I would love a second B.A. in psychology, but I doubt I'll get it. If I ever do, it'll probably be a graduate degree. I'm in grad school for a masters in criminology and criminal justice, but was advised to get a social work degree for the work I want to be in. Research while in grad school has focused upon sexual assault (in the media, sex trafficking, ignored victims, constitutionality of various legislation and how the death penalty intersects with sexual assault) and historical criminology. Really, I'm interested in forensic psychology, but few programs I've found, and actually like, offer that. There's also the nerd interest of the legal systems in ancient civilizations and how they defined crime; however, it's hard to find a lot of accurate research on that. A growing interest in restorative justice policies and the issue of domestic sex trafficking and prostitution. I lost both parents nine months apart and some issues still remain unresolved. I have two dogs, a sheltie named Libby and a shelhuahua named Legend. I'm a Type 9 enneagram; aries astrologically if that means anything to you.
