Joined 5 years ago from New York




Born in Budapest, Hungary and emigrated to the USA. I enjoy writing about occasional inspirations and sharing them with drunken insomniacs and wayward somnambulists... as well as HubPages readers.

Please feel free to share your comments, questions and criticisms.

Many thanks,
