About Me

I am P. I. Lumen.

I am an eccentric intellectual.

What does that mean?

It means that I am a quirky individual, and it means that I value intelligence. 

A little about me:
I am a rather eclectic person. I love studying world cultures, and have a particular affinity for the Spanish language and its accompanying culture and music. Traveling is one of my favorite activities. Vienna is my favorite city, with Chicago in a close second place. I listen to many different types of music, and approach new music with an open mind. Technology fascinates me. I enjoy the outdoors and camping. When not writing on my computer, I can be found writing with my collection of fountain pens.

Some of my favorite quotes:

Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
-Arnold H. Glasow

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
-Robert Frost

Only the educated are free.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a dmn fool about it.
-W. C. Fields
