I am an equal opportunity socialite. I am a walking talking calendar of events, from seeing a South African vocal group to manning an artfair booth. I love to connect people with things of interest to them, even though I often can't do so for myself. I pay attention to details and I value common sense. Although I am sometimes afraid to leave my comfort zone, I at least try. According to my friends, "if you don't know Laurie, you don't exist." I love to travel & experience other cultures. I'm very active w/ Meetup.com groups & YAD, maybe I'll meet you at one of those events.There's so much I could say here, but what would we talk about when we meet? ....short and sweet, like me!
