Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. 
~ E.E. Cummings

I suggest that the only books that influence us
are those for which we are ready,
and which have gone a little farther
down our particular path
than we have yet got ourselves. '

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope That there are still people around us who are willing to make a difference. And that there are still people loving, dancing, laughing, hugging, etc. The world may be covered in black spots (people warring out of greed, for instance, or people killing others on the street in a city somewhere) but it's not one black pit of doom.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Get everyone a good therapist. :) Or at least make sure that everyone is fed & has a safe roof over their heads.
What/who changed my life and why God & Oprah, because of either the way they care for me or what they had to say to make me see the world (and myself) more clearly
What Bugs Me People who disrespect the Earth, people who overuse plastic, people who act like bulldozers  
Passions books, the beauty of planet earth, my cat, love, art, family and friends  
What Scares Me  
Role Models Oprah Winfrey  
Quotation Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
