What I Want to Do:

In a moment of dream
I watch my life unfold before my mind
Too quick for even my eyes to see
Or for thought to comprehend
And yet I am left with an impression
Indelible as such
That it was filled with joy
And heart
And life
And that I was a good man
Doing what I could to ease the burden
Seeing the pain in others
And searching for the answers
I helped
In my own way
With what I could
And even with its passing I felt satisfied
Felt almost sanctified
That I was even here
For one brief moment
And felt the touch of another's hand
Saw the joy in a child's eyes
The pride in a mother's heart
The innocence of nature's children
The beauty of a lover's soul
With each single moment
I lived a thousand lifetimes
And felt each joy and pain
So deep...
But still I wish for more
And still hope that I will not be the only one
Who has this moment... this vision... this dream

Religions Mainly spiritual not religious, Some Buddhist beliefs, Some Hindu beliefs  
Eating Habits Vegan, Partly Raw, Veg Head, Still Love Chocolate Though!  
Wild Fact About Me As a child I was called the "lion" because of my propensity for eating only meat and milk. Later, I referred to myself as the "original carnivore" I ate more meat than any 10 people combined (3 or 4 pounds for a single meal). For me to become vegetarian was not something anybody could have ever foreseen...
My Philosophy Changing the world begins with one person... what can one person do? Everything!
What Gives Me Hope To encounter other people who have hope for a better world and actively try to change their's in small and lasting ways
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why I was always an anti-vivisectionist, it's what led me away from medicine which had always been my destiny. But, ironically, it was a bumper sticker that read, "If you love animals called pets, how can you eat animals called food," that really set me on a stricter path and opened my eyes. I had to admit to myself that I was a hypocrite and could not fight for animal rights on the one hand and be a cause of their suffering on the other. I had to make me as the messenger pure or else the message would be hollow.

    Have been seeing, on the news, the terrible weather you're
    having there !!  Making me shiver, just looking at it on TV. 
    Hope you're safe and keeping well wrapped up.
    Sending you a little sunshine and lots of hugs, to keep you warm,

    I'm not going to trust C2 e-cards to get my message to you this time - the last twice I sent a batch out, only half got there !

    Just a short, but very heartfelt, message to wish you and your loved ones a very happy festive season (whatever you personally celebrate this time of year).  Hoping that 2014 will be a much better year (for us all) than 2013 has been.  May it bring Peace, Happiness and, above all, Good Health !!   Lots of love and hugs,  Pamela
