The person who isn't me...

It's sometimes interesting to do a Google search on variations of oneself. I know that the other Jilara identities are a horse, and an artist in Brazil. Using various other versions of my legal name, I have turned up my fiction writing (but not my history articles), shamanism, Native American activism, herbalism, bees, and historic pursuits. The best ones for making sure it's "me" are using either my middle name or middle initial.

The weird one is that there is a one-off version of me that I get from using my first and last name, only. It's like she's a version of me that might have been, if the moonshadows had spun from the opposite side of the mountain. Activist, but way, way more radical left than me. Seems to be a socialist Green with communist leanings. She's into social biology and primates, and frankly, some of the listings for her I find...troubling in glitchy ways. Like running into another Promethea, to use Alan Moore's comic book analogy. Just...unnerving.
