About Me A genuine person, dedicated to the causes I believe in. I am an idealistic, pessimist, very easy going, but can be very radical, also. I'm very sensitive to suffering and injustice of any kind, particularly in regard to animals, the elderly, and children. I consider myself to be a grounded person, as well as someone who is working hard to become more and more holistic. I have been, or currently am a member of just about every animal welfare organization there is, including Care2's click to feed. Also NARAL, Organic Consumers, and Millions against Monsanto.

Eating Habits vegan, organic, local if possible  
Wild Fact About Me this isn't a wild fact, but I'm most happy with the simple things in life.
My Philosophy Be kind, but take no shit.
What Gives Me Hope Wonderful, courageous, people who are willing to stand up for what they believe in. Changes in our world happen because of people like this.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by End factory farming, end Monsantos near take over of our food supply, protect endangered species, enact tough, strict, laws to punish abusers in every animal cruelty case..every one. Protect women, and their right to choose, protect, and strongly punish abuse of the elderly and children. Run the Koch brothers out of the country, better yet, ship them off to an asteroid somewhere in space. Make free animals on Craigs list, live export of animals and crush videos, a crime.
What/who changed my life and why I grew up on a traditional farm. I saw cows being slaughtered,and butchered. I didn't understand it intellectually, because of my age, but I understood, and felt it, emotionally. I knew something was very wrong with it. As I grew up, I still ate meat, but never actually liked it. As an adult, especially now, with the horrors of factory farms, not eating meat is the easiest thing for me to do. And has made my love of animals, grow even deeper.
What Bugs Me noise pollution, anyone that would hurt an animal, Faux News and Rupert Murdoch, cruelty, tea baggers and other dumbasses, People who see but prefer to be blind, GOP leadership, Excessive Consumerism, abusive people, Destroying the planet !!!  
Passions singing, animals, nature/the earth, growing/learning, spirituality, cats, music, aromatherapy, environment  
Inspirations angels, animals, open minded people, beauty  
What Scares Me indifference, over population, the GOP/conservatives/the tea party, GMO's, Religious Extremism, War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, religious fanatics, Disrespect for others, cruel people  
Role Models Jane Goodall, Albert Schweitzer, supreme court judge Ginsberg, President Jimmy Carter, unknown hero's who deserve respect, Mahatma Gandhi  
Quotation The greatness of a nation, and it's moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.-M. Gandhi
Interests body/mind/spirit, music, spirituality, Holistic health, angels, crystals/rocks/gems, trains, history, my pets, words/writing, the arts and nature, old movies, learning to speak French, aromatherapy, wildlife, entertainment, Body/Personal Care  
Books spiritual evolvement/non religious, When Elephants Weep, Biology of Belief, Seeds of Deception, nonfiction, Almost anything worth reading, ghost stories  
Music everything, except old country and rap  
Movies MANY, I love movies/ old blk and whts, Wild, Lincoln, The Kings Speech  
TV Shows many, eclectic  
Favorite Foods pasta, chocolate, vegan soups and stews, vegan pizza, avocados, salad, mexican  
Favorite Places wide open spaces, any place I can feel the wind in my hair, San Francisco northern CA, the open plains, forests and woods, the ocean, rainy days, coastal areas, in front of a fire place at night, my bed!
