More About MeI try to be friendly and make people comfortable, though I don't always succeed. ;)
I am insatiably curious, and I am interested in learning almost anything, because I think everything serves to illuminate some aspect or other of the human condition, and I am very interested in the human condition.
I am a romantic at heart, but I also know that a strong relationship is built-it doesn't just fall out of the sky onto your head.
I think it's most important to spend time with the people you love, be they family or friends. Relationships are the real treasures in life, though it seems that as a society we realize that less and less with each passing year.
I have a fascination for language that permeates my entire being. I would love to be a poet, except that I think that I have the soul of a scientist with only hints of the poetic.
