I'm a warm blooded creature, raised mostly in Paris, but my background's so chaotic I'm a vampire's cocktail.
Also, my brain and heart are highly inflammable.
Moved here after London and Berlin, because it would've just been so predictable to stay where my MD was worth something. Plus didn't feel I needed to wait till retirement to live where I want to.
I really like trying to "get" a completely different psychological wiring then mine. That's the white thread between theater, psychiatry, languages and travel. And that probably comes from my teenage search for my "essence", the kern that wasn't a product of circumstances.
Friendship is my religion. Is there anything as beautiful as the lengths we'll go to bridge our differences with someone we care about?
With the people I care about, I like intimacy and being able to talk anything through (that's what happens in those parisian cafés where people talk for hours on end). Not that I want each instant to be intense, just being able to be vulnerable makes sharing the rest more pleasurable.
My standards for humans are very high, and those for my close friends even higher. (Naturally, I'm even tougher on myself).
I really try to be as considerate & consistent with my values as possible, and to decide/vote independently of my own interest.
I try to add a lil magic to other people's life every time I can.
I chose psychiatry because I like meeting new people -especially the weird ones-, because happiness is not only a legitimate goal, but I also genuinely think the happier we are the better we are to our piers (that's my shot at making the world better and possibly curing/preventing EVIL).
I'm catwoman and I do my own stunts.
It's actually quite easy to be autonomous and self sufficient.
But I like sharing and inventing new ways to make my guy's life magical. I even like that if pain there is, it often eventually gives way to a precious, tender benevolence.
