Wild Fact About Me I handle wild raptors on a regular basis - have the scars to prove it (don't worry - it's legal! I work at a wildlife clinic)
My Philosophy First do no harm, then figure out how to do better than that.
What Gives Me Hope children, golden lion tamarins, even hints of progress... it's always slow going to make things better
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Oye... see favorite book. i'm not sure i would know where to begin!
What/who changed my life and why To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf
- something about that book resonated deep in my soul - how life inevitably moves forward and is what it is, but yet has those countless little moments, the ones you can almost miss if you aren't paying attention, where life stands still for an instant and all is connected and right and good. All we have to do is make the first brush stroke... that is indeed the hardest part - knowing where to start.

Role Models I'm on a Marian Wright Edelman kick... V  
Quotation "The rainbow mirrors human love and strife; consider it and you will better know: In many hued reflection we have life" - Goethe, Faust
"A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back -- but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you." - Marian Wright Edelman
