Inspired, creative, progressive + happy human - true blue, loyal and love scruff on a man. Interests are.....the stuff that helps to give life meaning - art, films, music, travel + design.......reading lots and lots of books on history, philosophy and biographies. I enjoy writing, designing & doing anything creative + being around people who live with hope & joy. lov + peace ~ karen baxter
