The Real "About Me"

I'm very opinionated, but not closed minded.

I may be selfish, but I'm not sure... I don’t want dogs or children because I don’t want the hassle or the commitment.

I love my husband so deeply and intensely I sometimes cry thinking about it. I never thought it was possible to love someone so much, and in such a real way.

Once upon a time I didn’t know my sister. Now I'm not sure I always do, but I know enough to say there is no one else I appreciate more.

I loved high school, although I only remember half of it. ;-)

I was a long-haired-acid-dropping-dancin-naked-in-the-sun-Haight-Ashbury hippie in a former life. I still believe in Peace Love and Understanding.

I find and nurture my spirituality in the grandeur of nature. I give thanks for my blessings every day.

I believe in Karma.

My dream is to travel to Nepal and stand in the shadow of Chomolunga. I can’t imagine a more spiritual experience and really need to be there someday.

I believe there is good in all people and that you should be open to whatever it is they have to offer, because you never know when that will be just what you need. Treat others as you would like to be treated, judge not.

I believe laughter is the key to happiness. A good gut wrenching, tears running down your face, belly laugh is good for the soul and one of the greatest bonds between people there is. I cherish it.

I wonder how I can make a difference in the world and worry that I am not doing enough.

My biggest fear is growing old, withering away, and dying in a nursing home.

I love life. I love everything it has to offer, the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the triumphs and the tragedies, because all of that is an opportunity for growth and all of that has made me who I am today.

My favorite movies are Apocolypse Now, Interview with a Vampire, and Dead Poets Society.

I cry. At everything. Even the old Livesavers commercial when the dad offers his kid a lifesaver after losing the game.

I often think I am too empathic, as I feel too deeply others' pain and sorrow. I cannot watch movies in which real people are getting hurt, abused, harmed or saddened without being deeply affected - now apply that to real life... If I could live in a "Happy Cave" and not be aware, I might like that.

Conversely, I think too many people are not aware. And shame on them. Open your eyes people!!!

I think silence... is deadly.

I love to Road Trip: The road is relentlessly endless, our eyes are getting blurry, our necks stiff, backs sore. Eating so much junk I think I’ll explode – just to pass the time. Finally, suddenly, out of the misty nothingness, the mountains. The first peaks showing themselves to lift our downtrodden spirits, to pump our stagnant blood, and we sing. Our song is the song of the raven, suddenly set free, free to soar and experience that which is magic, that which is its life’s blood. We are soaring, and singing and remembering why we came.

I love my bike. Her name is Rocky. It is on my bike that I sprout wings and fly. Mud, blood, and miles later, I am transformed. I paint, and I imagine, and I create.

I am eternally grateful for and blessed to have so many amazing people in my life that I can call friend. Throughout the years, old and new, I have been honored by these friendships. Each person has become a part of me and I am better for it. Thank you.


I am currently eating peanut butter out of a jar, with a spoon.


I have no regrets.
