People from all over the world are evolving with Darwin’s Paradox…. Artists, construction workers, teachers, students, healers, entrepreneurs, councillors, and shop-keepers … all journeying together toward the singularity.
Look who’s here today:
“I’m a boomer with zip,” says Viviann Napp, who has been visiting new ports of call since she was 19. “My sailing highlights include a transatlantic crossing on a famous pop star’s lawyer’s sailing yacht.”
Boats, art and teaching English are high on Viviann’s list of interests. Her official schooling includes a BA in French, a MSci in Special Needs and an MA in ESL.
A world traveler, entrepreneur and adventurer, Viviann’s recent ventures included the creation of a vintage vacation rental home overlooking the Chesapeake Bay to the rehab of a 1930s four-story apartment building in Tallinn, Estonia where she lived for 15 years. Her adventure in Estonia included the birth of a successful art gallery where she co-created exhibitions with the British ambassador to Estonia.
“My parents were émigrés to Canada from Estonia, so I grew up embracing two distinctly different cultures. It’s been a lifelong pursuit for me to find my place in this arrangement,” says Viviann. “I have arrived at the ‘home stretch’ of my personal Hero’s Journey where I still strive to keep growing out of myself. I have recently joined CrossFit where I am inspired to post articles on my blog www.ViviannNapp.com.”
The photo of Viviann reading Darwin was taken at The Yellow Deli, in Chilliwack, BC, Canada. Says Viviann, “This homey, wood-paneled eatery provides the perfect ambiance for fire side reading a book you can’t put down. Warmed by a hefty mug of coffee and a savory serving of home-made vegetarian chili, I’m settled in to read author Nina Munteanu’s book from cover to cover.”
