found her on the first post
After finding Daryl and Pik, I am convinced that there's hope for the 'next blog' button. Which is why I keep slogging through the teenagers, the advertising (Blogger is now rife with so-called blogs that are just spam), and the Jesus freaks, who are legion.
Which is how I found Ellina at Screaming Monkeys Attack, apparently a waitress-slash-writer-slash-cellist. She's got one real post up so far, and it's long and complex, but beautiful. Waitressing and Arvo Part and sunlight. Check it out.
