I like to garden and watch it grow from its renewal in the spring through to harvest time, and don't care a lot for winter and the cold. I'm an artist at heart. My first drawing was of a dog on a cereal box at 18 months of age, and yes, it looked like a dog and he had a red collar with silver metal rivets. I had a good memory when I was young. I have many flowers and ten pear trees, Bartlett and winter pear, and one large apple tree. There are many evergreen trees and hundreds of Rose of Sharon that are blooming as I write this in purples, pink and white. I love animals and my pets have always been my best friends. I care about the environment and worry about this planet, chemical poisons, and global warming. I do the best I can with my own little world, and use all natural sprays I mix from my garden herbs. Lemon balm and catnip have kept the mosquitoes away beautifully this year. I worry about donations and where the money ends up. How many good and honest people are there in the world? Not enough, but adverse life circumstances are partly to blame. I don't want my donated money to go to expensive cars, first class travel and vacations and parties, etc., for a charity, and check them out at places like www.charitynavigator.com I like signing petitions and giving my opinion on an issue, but sometimes get too angry. I wish there was more I could do. Our government is influenced by big business, when their loyalty should be what is best for the people and the environment. I read and try to be informed, and pray for change, and realize that change starts with oneself. We are all connected and impacting one another through our thoughts and emotions, even if we live oceans apart and will never meet. I have hope for this planet. Thought is powerful and can raise the conscience and behavior of a society.

What Gives Me Hope God, my pets, the beauty of nature
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Provide everyone with dental care and medical care on a sliding scale of ability to pay. The health savings would be enormous because problems would be treated early instead of after they became a crisis. Dental care is important not only for self esteem, but infections here affect the health of the entire body.
What/who changed my life and why This is a profound thought. Like it or not, we are all changed by good, kind, honest people, but also changed by cruel, dishonest and destructive people that come into our lives. My belief in God and Jesus changed my life for the better. Mother Theresa I admire greatly. I'm not going to dwell on people who made it worse. We are the sum total of all the people who have come into our lives. Wisdom is learning who you don't want in your life to protect yourself from unnecessary pain and suffering. I've been very impressed with Dr. Emoto and his studies on the effect of prayer on water and all living things proven through photos of crystallized, frozen water. It even responds to the spoken word and captures images it is exposed to in a single drop of frozen water. It's so amazing. All life is connected, and we are mostly water. Water is like the internet of the earth's spirit. http://www.mercola.com/2002/may/8/prayer.ht

    and thanks to a benevolent
     arrangement of things,
    the greater part of life is sunshine."

    "The April rain, the April rain,
    Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
    Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
    And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
    And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
    The cuckoo through the April rain
    Calls once again."

    - Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"

     


     I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace
    and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty.

    "There are 32 points to the compass,
