She is a force of nature. I can't even remember meeting Lydia, she's just always been in my life with her gorgeous smile. Lydia is from West Africa and is the only West African I know who either can't or won't dance. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure she's a dancer... EVERY Ghanaian I know is. But she prefers the modest role of observer. I love her because every time I see her, she makes me feel like I'm one of the most important people in her world. And that's pretty awesome.
