dc.description.abstract We lie and we are lied to. Why then does it shock us when those around us are never what they seem, what they expose for judgment, rather than the whole of what they are. We each seek to assure those around us that we are in fact something that they can understand, connect with, and ultimately, put into a box of labels. But in reality most of us strain against such a narrow understanding of ourselves and of the world. Society and any human being in it can't be so easily defined. The individuals that live within these pages are as flawed as any human, yet they have fascinated me with their ways of perceiving the world around them, of fitting into it, or more often, living, as we all really do, outside the normal and always looking in. Remember dear reader, that what you find here is not always pretty, yet in each experience there is an irresistible beauty in the layered understandings of the world around us, of a chance to see through someone else's lens. It is this value that I put before you and I leave you to make of it as you will. en_US
