In between the place I've been and where I'm goin'

Ain't That Beautiful...?

Anything but typical

I just moved to a wonderful city after a litte too much time in the equally wonderful country-side, with a coast-to-coast US trip in the middle. I freely admit to being obsessed with books, music, culture and travelling. Coffee is my fuel, words are my passion, and my loved ones are my heart. I am in a constant state of wanting to know everyone in the world, and wanting to buy them all a drink.

I wasn't born in the place I was a child in, and now I call a different country my home.

I have done 4 years at Uni, but don't have THAT piece of paper. May be planning to go and get it earlier than I thought.

Right now sees me writing, working and enjoying being a local in a city.


I comment when I have something to say, I always read. Comment with something interesting, something more than just 'add me?' and I shall. Failing that, just add me, if you wish. In short, you don't have to ask to be added.

The quotes:

She's sun and rain, she's fire and ice, a little crazy but it's nice ~ She's Every Woman, Garth Brooks

Art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing but the highest quality to your moments as they pass, and simply for those moments' sake
...To burn always with this hard, gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstacy, is success in life.

~Walter Pater

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance

~Carl Sandberg

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.

~Bette Davis

May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

~George Carlin

I contain multitudes...

~Walt Whitman

Be not unkind to stangers lest they be angels in disguise...--recently found quote...
