Can you feel it?
Do you sense something big is happening or will happen?

Since the late 50's, I recall my teachers saying the planet cannot endure much more pollution. That we must act now before it's too late to save the environment for future generations. During the 60's as part of the anti-war movement, and going through the 70's, 80's and 90's hearing the same warnings, I find we have made little progress toward healing our planet and are now on a dangerous course.

As an optimist, I believe in the spirit of man to ultimately do the right thing, even in the face of adversity and when the odds are stacked against him. I also believe in faith, hope, courage and yes...in miracles.  My own life has been one big wall of adversity, odds and roadblocks. Through my optimism and beliefs, I have experienced many miracles.

With all the ugliness in the world, there is still vast beauty. We have within and around us everything we need to sustain us all for a good life. Rather than dwell on the ills of our world, it's important that we dwell on what we can change. So, what can you do?

Change your thought process and dwell on the positives - with an eye to changing the negatives. Knowing the economic crisis we face and the rising cost of food, consider going toward the basics and growing your own, then bartering with others for what you need in exchange for your excess food grown. And to reduce fears of the unknown in worst case scenarios, get your emergency supplies of food, water and survival in place. Most important...pay off all debts and try not to use credit cards. Reduce consumption to your basic needs only.

These are practical steps we all should have been doing long ago. By taking action and being prepared, you will reduce stress and gain a certain amount of peace of mind knowing you've done all you can to secure your well-being...which leads to greater happiness.

So, what's it going to be? Will you follow the crowd, put your head in the sand...or take charge of your life to minimize any crisis that comes?

  Lifestyle
Pets wild critters in my yard  
Activist Aspirations Casual
Political Leaning Liberal
Religions How I live is my religion  
Eating Habits Love garlic and onions, keeping it healthy, organic, no red meat  
Wild Fact About Me Was personal secretary to Sugar Ray Robinson (frequently cited as greatest boxer of all time, deceased); won CA state spelling bee-6th grade (can spell words I have no clue what they mean); ambidextrous; used to drag race on streets (cringe today when I think about it); raised in household with almost all major nationalities; simultaneously worked full time job while raising 3 children alone, while earning degree at night, while being a Navy Reservist
My Philosophy Care about others, care about life. Although my political leaning is Liberal, I live a conservative and extremely frugal lifestyle. I am quite practical, have never been on a "vacation", save for rainy days and have worked very hard over the years. I was usually the last one out of the door. Yet, I know everyone is different and dances to their own drum beat. I know alot of things, yet haven't touched the tip. Never discount someone's truth until I can disprove it. Must keep an open mind and must protect others, critters and the planet because EACH of us is a piece of the puzzle and completes the pie.
What Gives Me Hope My husband, thoughts of my grandmother, the Universal Mind
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Help others appreciate the benefits of racial diversity, restrict water usage and charge for excess use; stop grass lawns, encourage indigenous desert plants; focus on alternative energy, jobs, domestic issues and self-sufficiency; walk around town and get to know the people and their needs, ideas
What/who changed my life and why My grandmother who gave me hope where there was none, taught me to love unconditionally and showed me that I CAN make a difference
What Bugs Me closed minds with open mouths, sociopaths, Fox News, Glenn Beck, christians who are anything but, racists...especially those who deny it, snarky arrogant people, materialistic wasteful people, people who harm others, complicit congress, Rush Limbaugh  
Passions life, love, healing the planet, nature  
Inspirations peacemakers, books that reveal truth, Movies with inspirational messages, love, rainy days, butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, sunrise and sunset, kindness, a smile, a good book, the universe, hope, Courage in the face of adversity, the god in me and others, dancing  
What Scares Me corrupt leaders, apathy, so-called Christians who live otherwise, religious fanatics  
  Favorites
Role Models my grandmother, my life partner
