Lelisia is a lifelong bum, obsessed with art, music, languages, nature and science. Has a degree in Biology, but much prefers quantum physics and astronomy. Switched concentration from science to Classics in graduate school, concentrating in the Latin language and Ancient Roman culture. Is also a lifelong devotee of spirituality; and, though brought up Catholic, and oftentimes devoted to it, Lelisia is more closely attuned to the Buddha, to Apollo and Minerva, and to Asclepius and Dionysus. Lelisia is also, since age 16, devoted to the "Meditations" of Marcus Aurelius, and to Lucretius' "De rerum natura". Lelisia mostly sits around musing or dabbling with a variety of musical instruments---primarily bass, trumpet, French horn, and voice, or plays in the dirt, or, rather, sand, growing an ensemble of herbs, citrus, and "Mediterranean" type plants. Loves movies, especially old ones---VERY old, to most folks' thinking, such as those from the Silent Era of Film---being particularly fond of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., and Rudolph Valentino. Is a deranged cat and owl lover, as well, and has a passion for Cypress trees. Lives in Jacksonville, Florida, but feels it was perhaps a misstep to move away from Savannah, Georgia---the city of eccentrics, exotics, and avant garde artists in all genres. Loves to paint in oils, acrylics, inks or pastels, but mostly prefers to study, journal, and daydream. Is rather sold on the idea of self-sufficient living, avoiding driving, and eating organically as much as possible. Has been known to cook Ancient Roman meals using Apicius' recipes, but has equally been as known to sit all day eating little while playing "Oblivion," "Fallout 3," or "Skyrim." Does NOT like the upcoming "Elder Scrolls Online," however, and is thankful to have Beta-tested the game several times so as not to waste $60.00 when it is released.
