My name is Benita and I love all things ancient and natural. From copper patina to architectral elements I love it all. I live along the Gulf Coast and the beautiful sugar white sand beaches and turquoise water of Florida. If you have not visited this area you should! I am a history professor by trade which only adds to my interest in the ancient. You will see my picture from Rome which I had the great joy of visiting in December of 2009. I look forward to hearing from you and learning abot your interests. I welcome your comments.
