Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Karma is real. Everything you do effects the people and environment so think carefully before you do something that could harm them. A deeper connection to the earth creates a deeper connection to the divine. Use technology wisely and never favor it over true human interaction.
What Gives Me Hope That there are other parents like me who want to raise children who will feel more of a responsibility to the people and world around them. Perhaps someday they will be in the majority.

    You know, I almost went with the herbs, but decided on the rain because... well, I live in Seattle. 

    Not only have I actually done a few things with my page and finally gotten around to adding you, but I've been checking in with it too! 

    And also, since I was damaged this weekend and spent most of it propped up on pillows on my bed, I finally figured out this knitting thing.
