Activist Aspirations Enthusiastic
Political Leaning
Religions ex-christian, seeking indigenous truth  
Eating Habits much less, need less  
Wild Fact About Me I am ADHD, both types, recovering alcoholic, working on recovering from childhood, peripatetic teacher, dissatisfied, glad to be male, but prefer females, horrified at human history, hopeful beyond all reason.
My Philosophy I am learning to be grateful instead of fearful. Starting late on a slow but gratifying process. Only with hope, dreams, and love can we survive.
What Gives Me Hope Books by Stiglitz, Speth, Wolff, Korten, Chomsky, Sachs, Krugman, Reich and a thousand heroic women.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by End Capitalism and put people first. Study Rousseau; it's that simple. Work for people and for love, real wealth rather than fantasy wealth. Respect rights of nature first, since we live here at nature's sufferance. Wars are ridiculous and no longer even slightly appropriate. All action for world community with all cultures and languages nourished.
What/who changed my life and why Steve Sekhon & Jarl Foresman of www.gratitudetwentyfourseven.com for bringing me ancient wisdom I can access and resonate to.
What Bugs Me no interest in learning truth, warmongers, money used as power, selfishness and cruelty, People who think they know stuff  
Passions community, human harmony, water, rocks, mountains, trees, love  
Inspirations great writing, music, Martin Luther King, Jr, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Luxemburg, labor leaders, Gandhi, Tolstoy  
What Scares Me my fearfulness  
  Favorites
Role Models Sister Harris-Lacewell, Angela Davis,

    So true, since we cannot keep ourselves from damaging our only planet and exploiting all other creatures.
    HAVE NICE WEEK, MY FRIEND.
