Join Couchsurfing to see Melanie’s full profile. It’s free!
Passionate humanist, lover of all arts, including life itself, like talking psychology/philosophy/politics. I write a lot. I love traveling and meeting new people, loving, living and learning.
So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?â
