Notes from Me
Welcome to my page!

Current status: I'm always open to contributions of positive vibes! As I noted so eloquently in 2006 or so: Any positivity you send is *greatly* appreciated, and thank you from the center of my being (currently under construction ;))!

About Me I'm an eccentric, with a mind for issues both mine and the world's. My closest friends are creative, intelligent, compassionate, and often troubled ... rather like me! ;D I started my own business, Star and Crossbones, in 2005 as a form of self-expression and empowerment, and someday I'd like to be approved by Co-Op America. I see the forest more than the trees, and the patterns therein; and I demand justice for the wrongs that are being committed every day, on levels micro and macro.

Activist Aspirations
Political Leaning
Eating Habits Keep it Healthy  
Wild Fact About Me When Star Wars, Episode I came out, I cut my hair for the first time like Obi-Wan Kenobi's (in a Padawan cut).
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope When people, singly or together, stand against an unhealthy state of existence with strength, intelligence, awareness, compassion, and a sense of fun, for as long as it takes to change the world, and longer.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why Star Wars, because it taught me the difference between love and attachment. (Yes, yes, even before Episodes II and III. ;))
What Bugs Me when people let their fears control them, willful ignorance, narrowmindedness, neglect, ignored potential, misused space, mass-produced foods, excuses, casual extermination of life, negative attachments, thoughtlessness, lack of compassion, snobbery, invented drama  
Passions authentic self-expression, creativity, human rights, respect for all life, self-empowerment, justice, compassion, truth  
Inspirations a well-told story, ancient history, anthropology, mythology, nature  
What Scares Me  
Role Models The Dalai Lama, Mark Twain  
Quotation Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak Arabic, love music and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers and warriors. (Dr. Hunter S. Thompson)

Listen, nothing is impossible. Only, some things are difficult. (Théodore Monod, "the world's leading expert on the Sahara," from _Two Against the Sahara,_ Michael Asher)

There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout: This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you. (Stacey Charter)
