About Me


To explore


Open-minded and enjoying finding my way


Spreading positive energy wherever I can.I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.-- Stephen Grellet Of course this is an ideal philosophy. I am no Buddha :)
