"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." -Chuck Palahniuk I'm a Japanese-American, part German. I do not speak Japanese, but I do practice quite a few cultural traditions. I felt inclined to say this, because of the false Japanese usernames flying around, now. Izumiko, of course, is not a real name-- but it's something I've taken to, because I've always written Izumi as my false name, and my real name is Fumiko. False creativity, I love it. I love music of quite a few kinds, and I play the flute and oboe. I guess that's not important, and there's not much else I care to add. By the way! My stories/ poems don't have anything to do wtih the reality of my life unless I say so. I feel that that's an important thing to say.
