Who am I?

I am the person in the corner of the room who observes everyone and who may not say a word. I am the creator of memories that can tell a story while provoking emotion! I save time that would otherwise be forgotten. I save small details that may be overlooked and fade over time. I am Melissa I am shy but love meeting new people. If you say hi to me I am more then likely going to talk your ear off! I am an observer and book lover when I a moments to read.
