New York, USA
Bio: I am a proud American, wife and mother. A former student of anthropology, I remain an enthusiastic treasure hunter but eventually gravitated to theology with a focus on mysticism. I am an aspiring author of literary fiction and I have completed a trilogy which addresses matters in mysticism, love, religion and the contribution these three principles infer on the perception of reality. A Lover of Words, I enjoy writing, music, dance, photography, independent films and the culinary arts. Great joy is found in needling a philosophical point, and for my part, I try to honor the Socratic mindset as the foundation to the "knowledge of truth." And, I believe that the Taoist precept, "One who knows does not say it; one who says does not know it," can be a guide to the conviction of faith. My husband, children and nationality are counted among the treasures I value most, but also, a jewel in my archives is, the opportunity to journey to other countries. Exotic lands, full of history, are intriguing to me and the cities I wish to revisit are Lourdes in France, Mykonos Island in Greece, Garmish in Germany, Sorrento and Taormina in Italy and I left my heart in San Francisco. I wish to see more of France and Egypt, and hope I can visit Jerusalem, Morocco, China, Japan, India and see more of our own wonderful America. Through the grace of God, I believe this blessing has offered a unique perspective on life and I am grateful for the privilege to learn from other cultures. Cultures full of depth, beauty and substance, are a wonder and mystery to me and I celebrate the expression of language, art, music, food and religions. I applaud diversity but believe we are all one humanity. And I find the quote "Remember you are unique!...Just like the rest of us," to respect individuality while honoring the amazing, human capacity for diversity without attempting to exceed our humanity.
