Hang On Tightly, Let Go Lightly

The Enlightened Optimist
I'm an enlightened optimist, an aspiring megalomaniac and a raconteuse - or so I like to think. Sometimes I refer to myself as an incipient bitch goddess awaiting apotheosis. Interpret that how you will.

I'm also an expatriate Brit, but it's been so long since I lived there that there's hardly any Britness left in me.
