Like all people in some form or another, I am stereotyped by many names....woman, mother, daughter, friend, lover, photographer, artist, musician, singer, poet, writer, chef, cheeky, playful, optimist, victim, survivor...I am none of these things and all of these things and more...
                                         I am...me....I am.

I have been truly blessed with eternal love, a deep connection to another soul, that allows me to be fully present in my own life everyday, experiencing and sharing both profound joys and deep sorrows, the wonder of all of life's beauty, the reflections of quietude and peace in my heart.

I am a cancer survivor...and throughout that whole adventure I was given the grandest of opportunities...a second chance at life. An opportunity to live my life with intention...with attention. And I am not wasting a single minute of it...and neither should you.

Life is too short to wait for someday. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Live passionately with intention.

Kiss slowly and deeply. Love truly, deeply, and fervently with all of your heart...the earth, all manner of friends, family, and creatures...people whom you've never even met...but most especially yourself.

Laugh freely and uncontrollably.  Dance passionately like no one's watching. Live and discover your life like the adventure it truly is!

And never never never ever regret anything that made you smile. 

Thank you for stopping in and visiting my profile...may your day be filled with peace, love and joy!

What/who changed my life and why There are so many circumstances that have influenced my life...and as life is constantly changing every second of every minute of every day, to pinpoint one event or person diminishes the impact of all else.
