During my meanderings through life, I have tried my hand at various creative outlets. Some I have abandoned. Others I seem to have put on hold for finite or indefinite periods of time. One thing is certain, however: at any given moment, I am sure to do something or other in a creative vein.Current artistic hobbies:
photography, music (singing), digital visual arts (wallpapers and what-not).Abandoned or paused art forms:
writing (mostly prose; formerly also poetry & lyrics), drawing (formerly; mostly pencils).Other interests:
horseback riding, science fiction, horror, fantasy, Finnish mythology, assorted literature, psychology, religions, culture, traveling.

Internet ain't big enough for that list. (Wrote that for Fave Musicians field.) As it turned out -- neither was the allotted field size. Also, the contents of the Fave Writers & Other Interests fields keeps disappearing on me.
