I have been through the fire and come out on the other side stronger, wiser, and a hell-of-a-lot more adventurous!  I want to experience the passions and pleasures of this finite existence with a sense of anticipation and the joy of learning about myself and others.  Whether it is a new author, a new philosophy of living, or a new lover, I want to immerse myself and my senses completely within the existential quest for knowledge and meaning.
