About Me Intelligent with a wry wit (if I do say so myself--and apparently, I do!...) Spiritual, passionate, opinionated, analytical, emotional but logical. I am concerned with authenticity and truth, and believe in defending the defenseless and standing for something. Also known for playing devil's advocate in an argument! (For the sake of discussion, of course.)

Political Leaning Depends
Religions Sort of Buddhist-Christian-Wiccan  
Eating Habits love sugar, strive for low-carb diet, need lots of protein, am a coffee addict!, love salads  
Wild Fact About Me "Crazy" can be useful...(ssshhhh! Don't tell anybody....)
My Philosophy "One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything." -- George C. Lichtenberg
What Gives Me Hope My belief in God, and that we all have purpose, and the idea that maybe the grand story of each of our lives is bigger and more amazing than we can imagine.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Declare "women's" history a part of "general" history (and make it so). Reform education in general, and make psychology and sociology a mandatory part of grade school education, and also give back to teachers the creative latitude they have lost in recent years.
What/who changed my life and why My maternal grandmother, who set me on the spiritual path at a young age. And my mother, who raised me a feminist, and who had the brilliance to ask--upon my declaration that I wanted to be a secretary when I grew up--"Why not be the boss?"
What Bugs Me people who can't "rock the boat", injustice, lack of authenticity, cruelty to animals and people, chauvinism and mysogyny  
Passions communication, books and all things related, truth and justice  
Inspirations Can't tell yet?--keep readin'!  
What Scares Me the denial people are capable of, simplistic thinking, the level of cruelty in the world, close-mindedness
