Introduction Black/White/Cherokee genetically, female of the species, bipedal with opposable thumb. I love languages and speak several, have lived in Asia and Northern Europe as well as the both coasts of the US. Imported my husband from the UK about 10 years ago and we still like each other. We met online in a social group two years before we ever met in person and romance never seemed an issue since an ocean and a lot of land lay between us. Life is more good than not. :)
