    I am intrigued by the internet and endeavor to be genuine as I am. Less travelled in personal I have travelled alot in my mind. I value solitude at times and I believe we should be equal. Education and healthcare should be free and world class for all. I tend to spend much time online. I read most of the time and I drive all the time. These are my thoughts!
