Lucia is a study of contrasts. She is fiery and passionate and she is calm and contemplative. She loves spicy food and loud music and tango and humidity. And she also craves peace and quiet and tranquility and comfort. She reads astrology obsessively but holds a doctorate in mathematics. Lucia loves children and simultaneously pines for a brood and dreads sharing her life with another human. She is curvy in all the right places and even a few wrong ones too. Lucia loves Gregorian chants and the structure of high church service and yet curses worse than a sea-worn sailor, so she visits the confessional often. She might even hide a knife or two in her corset. Lucia lives to the edge of every day, balancing on her tippy toes to keep from breaching the precipice, while she looks over it and yearns to let go.
