I love learning. All kinds of learning. I also love art and making art. My primary creative mediums are photography, writing, and sewing, but I am a consumer of all kinds of art. I want to see most of the world, which means I'd better study up on immortality. Movies and reading are favorite diversions, and I'm omnivorous for both. I'm an avid cook and enjoy cooking for others (tempting in a host, no?). As a traveler, I tend to be independent and prefer to plan my own trips rather than going with a packaged itinerary.
