Here it goes : unattached and independent human being who
fortuitously was born and still remains of them, enigmatic females
; well-rounded , though admits a minor imperfection : too smart for
her own good since has got over-educated ....
Rather extensive traveling and work abroad helped me to overcome
most of cultural and upbringing-induced narrow-mindedness and
bigotry. I was happy while working in Spain, Germany or Poland and
survived using smile and just a few words in native
Bay Area resident since 1995 and love it because in this climate I
can wear my favorite high heels and shortish skirts all year
The long stretches of "survival of the fittest" have taught me
important lesson:" Be your-self no matter what they say".
Here is one more of my favorite quotes ( there are so many people
