What the people of the 562 area code call weed. It is called this because like the renaissance it is a period of rebirth. The term is widely used and understood in La Mirada.. also used in some areas of the OC and LA counties. And in various major cities in the US. The main reason this code name was created was to use it around the Police and Parents.. and other people you dont want to understand. It is the item and also the action of smoking weed.

You know if you are born a Renaissance Woman, or have met a Renaissance Woman, because:

You/She can mix the knowledge of what is considered disparate spheres into a new whole,

by using her most unique method of analysis based on

her very vast, deep, curiosity and experiences...

which led to a very vast & deep knowledge,

that she is so anxious to apply to everyday life, &
to inquire, and share with everyone she meets.
Real Question from top Venture Capital Fund CEO (note, he's in his 70's, ex - RIT, Xerox Exec.) during 7th , and final, interview with firm in 2000):

"How do you reconcile your math skills with such a personality?" That is, how can you have disparate skills - fun & math?- how do you reconcile being a "Renaissance Woman"? After recovering from the shock of such a question (I haven't even mentioned my art studies, piano lessons, theater, music exposure/loves), I responded - "I don't think that having math skills and a personality are mutually exclusive. How can you operate in business without being able to communicate with other people?". That's the lesson - I was able to communicate with all 7 interviewers because I had lived in , knew someone from, knew something about, and was interested in, a subject of interest to the interviewer. The lack of a "Renaissance" mind-set defines the "State of the Union" today - no one is communicating because people are closing their spheres instead of opening them and comprehending the multitude of their connections. That's how a nerd hippie got hired by a Mormon venture capital fund.
