Curiouser & Curiouser
My parents named me Yang. They hoped for memorability. Some call me Linda. They choose familiarity.
Coast to coast to coast I roamed until I found a rent-controlled apartment to call home. Fortune brought me to the Bay, where Design is my present-day trade. I work on mastering and modeling languages, visual and verbal, creative and coded, mental and machine.
At my best, I discover patterns, define systems, and draw the future. I make late-night breakthroughs and advocate for afternoon naps. I eschew the solitary pursuit of pixel perfection and search for people with whom to make progress. I am not too cool for idealism but I have little patience for assumptions without examination.
I am a human, student, spouse, daughter, and friend. I write in riddles and rhymes for feelings and fears I cannot recite. My compulsion for cleverness is at times crippling. I try to try everything at least once. I read every Hercules Poirot mystery at least thrice. My appetite for noodle soup is bottomless. The views from the heights of this Valley are boundless.
My grandmother sets the ceiling with her relentless studies. My mother survived a Cultural Revolution so that I can have the freedom to speak. Courage is my highest ideal, but curiosity changes the world.
