I am a cultural anthropologist, an early adaptor, an antennae that feels the energy of the people and world around me, which gives me insight and a knowing I cannot explain (and also presents some problems). To this, add my intense curiosity and joy of discovery, my belief in human dignity as well as human rights, along with my insistent need to be creative and to express myself. Not to mention, I am a child of the social and cultural revolutions that scorched through America in the 1970's--Civil and Women's Rights--along with our opposition to the Vietnam War and the disgust we felt toward our government's (and societal) hypocrisy, Richard Nixon and his cronies' Watergate.
So this will explain why I am compelled to write this Letter From Paris about how the revolution that is currently exploding in Egypt--and will certainly grow--is touching us and being reflected in Paris as it certainly is in every cranny of the rest of the world.
