Member Questionnaire 1 (viima)What is beauty? What is love?
Beauty is an universally recognized positive and emotion provoking quality of both concrete and abstract objects. It is a subjective interpretation yet there are features commonly considered beautiful. What are your most important values?

I don't cry often but exhaustive feelings such as despair and failing and fear can make me cry. Something very touching can make me either cry or smile.
