the strange and wonderous world of the Requiem Rosariohello and welcome. my name is Sierra, but you may call me Requiem Rosario, or be creative and come up with something on your own!
well, my friend, where do we begin in this, the describing of the complex, eccentric, reclusive, and no doubt mad entity that is Sierra, Saint Sorroe? i shall begin at my passions--the all-consuming joys of my existance.
writing is my muse. it is to write that i live, and without this, i would surely be more of a babbling idiot than i am now. the characters that i create are more real to me than most of the people that i know, and thus i am their instrument. they speak their troubles, their joys, their sorrows, pains, sufferings, loves, triumphs and their defeats through me, and i simply try my best not to screw up what it is that they are saying. i have a tendancy to live in my head, the strange realm of my eccentric imaginings. reality bores me, in short. i much prefer the world of my own design.
as well as writing, i love to read. to escape the harshness of everyday life for hours, this is my means. without my books, well, i do believe sanity would have fled much sooner. my favorite authors slash literary muses are the amazing Anne Rice, Dan Brown, the Immortal mister Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, monsieur Stephen King, among others.
Music is also a means by which i may flee to my own realm. my preference is classical and instrumental, but i do occasionally listen to music with words if i feel that it reminds me of a character i have created (i do not mean chant-i desperately love chant, and regardless of if it has relevance to a character/plot/scene, i will listen to it.) most of the music you hear is what i listen to as i write. music is a fuel for my abysmal, furnace-like imagination, and there is never any shortage of fuel. i also write and play my own music, playing piano, french horn (such a delightful instrument!!), and an aspiring student of the beautiful cello and violin.
i am also a blindly devoted theatre student. i love theatre, and have had the wonderful fortune to help our One Act Play's production of "The Women of Lockerbie" advance on to various stages of competition.
ask any being who knows me, and they will tell you that i love these things more than anything in the world: cathedrals, rosarys, france, architecture, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, victorian dresses, stained glass windows, wind and snow, roses, and europe. rather obviously, i am an odd little one, but i do believe that that is why many of those who love me do so (we can only hope!)
so, you have seen (in a nutshell) the very strange and wonderous world that belongs to me. if there is anything you wish to know, please feel free to send me a message.
