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 languages.
Bay Area resident since 1995 and love it because in this climate I can wear my favorite high heels and shortish skirts all year around.
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 much smarter than me):
"Perhaps the most indispensable thing we can do as human beings, every day of our lives, is remind ourselves and others of our complexity, fragility, finitness, and uniqueness" ( A. Damasio).
Cannot say for sure if this is just a wishful thinking or a new paradigm is evolving.
Omnivorous reader, got enchanted by John Galsworthy, S. Maugham and P.G. Wodehouse novels.
Keep my-self reasonably fit – gym exercises 2 times a week and dancing once a week.
Like to knit/crochet and do some embroidery too.
"Oh, you look like European lady!" Hardly surprising since I am one of them, European women...One can take the girl out of Europe, but one can't take Europe out of the girl!
Thanks to KQED, recently discovered ironic poetry of Phillip Appleman.
Music: Haendel and Bach, Verdi and Grieg, classic guitar, Astor Piazzolla and Flamenco; Peter,Paul & Mary; Leonard Cohen. Got completely smitten with Celtic Thunder at first, now cooling down, though still like them a lot.
I've never understood why "food issue" has to be included in dating profiles.
How come that what we prefer to eat defines who we would like to meet? Are we going to fight over a plate of favorite food or what?
How does milk get into coconut?
How should I my true love know
From another one?
Given access to FTL transportation, where would I get faster - to the core of Milky Way or to the end of OKC questionnaire?
Agape and Eros, are they harmonious or antagonistic? Can both be focused on the same person and at the same time?
