About Me I am unconcerned about material things - very concerned about this planet. I live a simple (some would say insanely primitive) existence because of a sincere desire to tread as lightly as possible on this earth. I share this space with a like minded husband and all the wonderful creatures we've adopted (many from cruel or neglectful situations). We are artists and naturalists, making our living at home in this beautiful place.

I don't like to play games with people's heads and so can sometimes be considered rather blunt, but I take the world's woes very seriously and often lose patience with those who do not. This doesn't mean that I spend all my time on a soapbox - I can have fun too - but my enjoyment usually comes from walking in the woods watching wildlife or keying out mushrooms and flowers, not parties and social events.

To give you better idea of who I am, just know that anyone who thinks the way to enjoy nature is on the back of an ATV or whizzing around a lake on a jet-ski probably wouldn't like me very much. But if quiet discussion, observing nature, books, a good glass of wine and like things appeal to you, you might.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Give, do, help.
What Gives Me Hope Not much frankly. Global warming is considered a joke by about 75% of the population, and Americans are still spending hand over fist to have bigger, more polluting and resource wasting toys. Still, maybe disasters like the recent tsunami in Indonesia and our own hurricane Katrina may wake a few people up to the consequences of ignoring our changing climate. I suppose there is a grain of hope in that.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Establish a cabinet level position for the study of "humans in the environment" in order to determine ways that we can live with, rather than off of, the rest of the planet's flora and fauna. You CAN have a clean, healthy planet that includes people living good lives. All of the bull about people losing jobs because we tree huggers want to save spotted owls and old growth forests is just timber industry propaganda. There are ways to have jobs AND forests full of wildlife. We just need to use our brains instead of our anger and prejudices.
What/who changed my life and why Leo Welch, my biology teacher in college. He helped my mind to understand what my heart already felt... that this is a very special place in the cosmos, and we have to take care of it.
