The Ex-Pat Manifesto

"There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to the unfamiliar: it keeps the mind nimble, it kills prejudice, and it fosters humor."

George Santayana

i like this quote. it is hard to venture into the unfamiliar... to change... but unless you do, how can you grow and learn?

i love to meet and talk to people i don't know and get to know them and their perspective on life... to listen to their story.
