Introduction I like to consider myself a renaissance woman and a life learner...I am engaged by this world, by existing within it, by experiencing all its tastes, flavours and tangents and by listening to what lights my soul..my family motivates me greatly....and I feed my soul through art, art history, anthropology, politics, technology, internet, music, self-development, sociology, language, business, and especially of late, reconnecting with old friends ...I am also learning how to love better and forgive more...wish me luck...
Interests I feed my soul through art, art history, anthropology, politics, technology, internet, music, self-development, sociology, language, business, and especially of late, reconnecting with old friends (loving Facebook!!!)...I love the nostalgia and the simple warm and fuzzies I get from hearing from people that I've lost touch with, but love nonetheless...
