Brain Pickings by Maria Popova
I enjoy finding previously unknown treasures in music, films and well, people. I'm an explorer by nature, but a pragmatic thinker who prefers to live in the moment and be guided by healthy skepticism. What better time than now?
Update: Love finding books at low prices at my favorite book hangouts Downtown Books or Mr K's
I look at the world with unbridled curiosity! (and sometimes hope and awe at the human spirit)
