Just to say...
I'm so glad to have found a social networking site that actually cares! I'm hoping to be more active in finding and spreading news items and other helpful things once my life settles down - I'm currently wrapped up in my fledgeling ethical business and it has taken over my life completely. So apologies friends! I know I neglect you :( But I do try to take action every day, which is really why I am here.

About Me I'm an artisan and crafter, in the past I was self employed doing art and environmental workshops with children, and I'm thinking about starting that up again. I'm happiest near any body of water, whether that be the sea, a waterfall or a rutted tyre track puddle. I love camping. A critter doesn't have to be cute for me to care; slugs feel pain too! I'm new here and still working out how this thing works, so on care2 I'd say I'm clumsy.

Pets none since my cat died :(  
Activist Aspirations Rabid
Political Leaning
Religions organised religion is not for me  
Eating Habits I love food!, vegetarian, healthy  
Wild Fact About Me You mean I have to narrow it down to one?
My Philosophy I live by the principles of tactical frivolity, senseless beauty and freedom. I believe that every woman benefits from owning a sewing machine and a drill. And every man, come to think of it.
What Gives Me Hope Love, beauty, that will do for now :)
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Permanently sacking all politicians, including myself of course
What/who changed my life and why As a child I saw my local environment being destroyed and degraded. Meadows I played in ploughed up for roads and shopping developments, the ponds I collected tadpoles in and watched dragonflies fly over drained and paved over, the trees I climbed in chopped down. The apathy of the adults around me at that time astounded me. I decided right then as a child that I wouldn't grow up to be one of those uncaring apathetic adults.
What Bugs Me capitalism, Greenwash, waste, complacency, politicians, apathy, sloppy thinking, dangerous driving  
Passions nature, freedom, peace, making a difference, love, LIFE!!!, environment  
Inspirations tolerance, kindness, the small things, the sound of the ocean, the sun coming up, peacemakers, courage  
What Scares Me disposable culture, global warming, religious fanatics, ignorance, current USA administration  
Role Models Being your own role model is best  
Quotation Time flies like and arrow. Fruit flies like a banana - Groucho Marx
Interests peace, activism, wildlife, recycling, reading, national parks, ecology, environment, crafts  
Books Annie Dillard, J.G Ballard, Oscar Wilde, Douglas Adams, Tanith Lee, Angela carter, Ursula K Le Guin, Isabel Allende, HP Lovecraft
