Another space for random thoughts

Ah, what to say? I guess this is just a place where I like to "park myself" and connect with other people who are members of "my tribe." I suppose that's what many of us ultimately do-- try to find like kind souls to interact with. I found mine, after looking for her since I was 13... "it" really DOES happen. For those of us of an introspective bent, the web seems especially appropriate as a gathering place, or point of contact.

As for me, I am Danish, but have lived in the US for 25 years. I am an HSP ("Highly Sensitive Person"), a writer, a reader, a global nomad, a Myers-Briggs INFJ and an enneagram Nine. I work fairly extensively with HSPs, both in terms of providing connection through online groups, and through my work with periodic "HSP Gatherings," which are 4-5 day workshops and retreats for highly sensitive people.

Next HSP Gathering will take place in Somerset in the UK on April 2-6, 2009. Visit Creator/Organizer Jacquelyn Strickland's web site for more information:
