I have always liked the idea of having several lives, to be larger than my one life, so to speak.
Anairam, my online blog persona, is part of this. I experimented with Second Life. Tango also allowed me to live another life. (Sadly, I decided to retire from tango at the end of last year.) And the reason I am so addicted to books and movies is because they give me the opportunity to at least experience other lives.

"Do I contradict myself?
Very well, then I contradict myself.
I am large,
I contain multitudes."
