Eating Habits not terribly good  
Wild Fact About Me I live an incognito life at the request of my spouse so his Mother won't find out we're living together again after having been separated. Been invisible for 6 years now. No Facebook, no twitter, no answering the home phone unless I know who it is...of course Care2 may blow my cover, but oh, well.
My Philosophy This too shall pass.
What Gives Me Hope That all things change, nothing is hardwired the way it seems.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Now there's a scary thought. I guess I would push hard for good education, decent housing and enough to eat for everyone...these seem to be the things that wars are usually about once we get past religious differences and who has the most oil.
What/who changed my life and why The internet, because through it I found the Asian Classics Institute and through them, everything I could ever want.
What Bugs Me one-up-manship, intolerance of beliefs of others, my jealousy when not included  
What Scares Me  
Role Models My brother Tom, Lord Buddha, My parents, Lama Marut, Geshe Michael Roach, H.H The Dalai Lama  
Interests Ancient cultures, Figuring out how to repair things, Learning to translate Tibetan texts, Quilting  
Books Texts from Mahayana Buddhism, Books by Ellis Peters, Books by Elizabeth Peters  
Music Irish folk music, Jazz, Oddly enough, new country  
Movies The Great Lebowsky, Quiet Man, All the Harry Potter movies (so far), Friendly Persuasion, Kundun, Harvey - with James Stewart, Casablanca  
TV Shows House, Bones, Eureka, Warehouse13, Haven, Monster Fish Unhooked, MASH, Destination Truth

Favorite Places The Oregon coast in November, Hiking in the Jemez  
Can't Live Without Meditation, A good cup of coffee, hope
