outou: (Who hath desired the Sea?)

In June of the human realm, all fragrant and beautiful flowers have disappeared.

But the mountain temple’s peach blossoms have just begun to bloom.

Feel free to add me to your friends list, but please send me a message if you do! I like to know the people who, for lack of a better phrase, want to know me. Don't worry, I don't bite!

I'm currently majoring in both Russian Language/Culture and Sino-Japanese Studies, with a minor in International Relations. All other relevant information can be found with interest and ingenuity.

This journal was originally intended to showcase the graphics I make, which are now hosted at [info]momoizumu; I still occasionally post "artwork" here, which mostly consists of works-in-progress. The nebula you see here, the cloudscape in the "welcome" post, and the header of the icon journal were all painted by me.

The poem referenced here is Robert Frost's "Choose Something Like a Star," while the title of this journal is part of Bai Juyi's "Peach Blossoms at Dalin Temple." The style sheet used for this journal was made by [info]minimally, and the profile code was made by [info]fruitstyle. Thank you!
