People that are overwhelmed or helpless. That's why I like being around heavy trauma in the hospital, the people there are so in need and so deserving of good care.

When I was in college I had a book entitled: The Magic Mushroom Agape

Mine is the Ocean. It's a place where I:

- play
- compete
- harvest/hunt for food
- find solitude, comraderie, peace
- become one with the elements
- battle with the elements
- learn about its ways
- learn about myself
- become humbled and strenghtened

Greek Yogurt is a byproduct of Greek Love. So, yes, that does count.

Greek love is great for a non-receptive point of view.

Hmm, so that what Agape means. I thought it's some sort of Christian thing, because I always see that word around churches and stuff.

How do you pronounce it?
a-gape
a-ga-pee
a-gap

Teaching...but I refuse to do it professionally....I can be a bit tempermental at times, so I think classroom stuff is a no go for me.

I love it when I get to enrich someone's mind.

What is your Agape?

Greek love usage:

storge - 3%

philia - 4%

agape - 6%

eros 87%

Hey, I am only human.
