Various Vintage 

I've always been called an old soul. It's a pretty accurate description - I love good old fashioned conversations, and my book shelves are overflowing.  My idea of a fun day is a trip to the library and then finding a quiet chair in a little coffee shop.  I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a curmedegon at heart. 

This may seem pretty grandiose and noble, but I've always been drawn to the more intellectual side of things.  I'm ready for an intelligent conversation and an opportunity to learn something new. 

If you're introspective, reflective and often seem to have a heart that's a couple of decades older than your age, you are not alone.  Let's get to know each other! Read more about my old-fashioned ways in the post below and then comment so us old souls can stay connected.
