About Me

Click to see my most favorite postcard received thus far

I am 62 years of age with a joie de vivre. I embrace the world best through knowledge and communication. There is nothing I like more than taking in copious volumes of information from many disciplines. I love to laugh more than anything. Respect - diplomacy - kindness - love - honesty - all of these are very important attributes to possess.

I have a deep appreciation for aesthetics and the finer things in life, the arts, theatre, classical literature, and fine dining. I would also enjoy eating at a roadside diner on Route 66 or a hole in the wall if the people are fun. I'll take good vibes over ambience any day. It's all about good vibes for me. From the Ritz Carlton to the Beverly Hillbillies - they all appeal to me in equal measure. I love me some hillbillies and I love Jeff Foxworthy! He cracks me up on a whole nuther level.

I love looking at beautiful things and I'm never bored. There is still so much to do and experience. Until I take my last breath in this incarnation, I intend to live to the fullest extent possible.

My interests are as varied as the people I meet. I am not wedded to any strict way of being in the world.

Among the many things I love:

Americana * Ballet * Chocolate Candy * Clarinet * Classical Music * Crystals * Decorative Stickers * Fine Dining * Fine Arts * Frasier * Gymnastics * Indian Food - Not Spicy * Jigsaw Puzzlers * Lindt Lindor Truffles (Milk) * Saint Germain * Sushi * Technology * The Violet Flame * Tiramisu Cake from Whole Foods * Travel * Washi Tape

Postcards I would love to receive:
A post card which reveals the most about you.
Your favorite postcard.
A postcard that would make me go "wow!"
Aesthetically pleasing postcards.
A postcard you love that is not on my list.

Favorite Music

I rarely listen to music nowadays, favoring silence above all. Contemplation and quieting of the mind bring peace to my soul in the midst of chaos in the outside world. Sparks of creativity whisper to me in the quietudes of my mind. Creating is what makes life rich and beautiful.

Among the many songs I enjoy in my eclectic tastes in music:
"I'm Every Woman" by Chaka Khan.
"Respect By Aretha Franklin
Lord Nelson Mass by Josef Haydn
Handel's Messiah: Hallelujah Chorus (by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir)
"Time Loves A Hero" By Little Feat

Favorite Books

The following books speak to me in ways yet to explore:

Kuthumi - The Human Aura. Henry Cloud - Boundaries
Keith Sherwood - Chakra Healing and Karmic Awareness
David McCullough - Americans in Paris
Barbara Marciniak - Path of Empowerment

Quote Love

These are a few of my favorite quotes:

To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid.

Every relationship has problems, because every person has problems, and the place that our problems appear most glaringly is in our close relationships. The key is whether or not we can hear from others where we are wrong, and accept their feedback without getting defensive. (Henry Cloud - Boundaries).

If it's not going to matter in 5 years, spend no more than 5 minutes thinking about it.

Communicate. Even when it's uncomfortable or uneasy. One of the best ways to heal is to simply get everything out.

Hi, VitaLynne, I just saw your second message today. I am tech challenged because I don't even know where to go to hear the audio clip. I would send you my email address but I don't know how to do that so you alone would see it. I am sorry I am so clueless. Sharon (sjbookworm)
