Hello there, I'm Satya!
I live at The Benson Place Blueberry Farm and I love it here.
See the Me on the web section below for a overview of my online profiles.
See my Now page for a hopefully-updated bit about what I'm doing now.
My name is complicated. Sorry. Short version is: I am Satya Benson, and I use
satchlj online. Long version here.
I live in western Massachusetts, where I've been since 2006. I went to the Hartsbrook School in Hadley for my early childhood education, and I homeschooled most of elementary school and all of highschool. Now I'm a student at Williams College.
I have too many domain names

I like long walks on the beach. But more than that, of course, I like Pink Floyd, Yes, Jacob Collier, the Beatles, and lots of fiddlin' jams, mind blowing classical compositions, and snippets of birdsong, from the beginning of music way back in the day all the way through to the present. I also play the violin :)
Other killer bands and artists: Fleetwood Mac, ∆, Neutral Milk Hotel, Genesis, Van Der Graaf Generator, King Crimson, Radiohead, the Grateful Dead, Jethro Tull, Joanna Newsom, Gil Scott-Heron, Arden Lloyd, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Paul Simon (and Simon & Garfunkel), Peter Paul and Mary, the Band, Joan Baez, Liz Carroll, Crosby Stills & Nash, the Gaslight Tinkers, Solas, The Decemberists, The Flaming Lips, and (last but not least) the great Django Reinhardt.
