"Who or What Am I?" ...questions I've been trying to answer all my life. The crusade to find one's self is often foggy, far worse than the fogs of London and denser than the swirling masses of gaseous matter and debris surrounding a star, except it's all in my head. Indiscernible to myself and others. A kind of fixed question mark.
"Really, who am I?" I am a typical Aquarius, and consider myself unconventional, creative, and always traveling the road less traveled. I was born in Mississippi, on January 27th, 1981. (Mozart’s birthday!) My parents were public school teachers. Despite a few times of struggle, their salaries managed to provide my brother and me with everything we needed. My mother loves recalling a story. Once I listened to her talking on the phone. I was near the back door, and I heard her say, “If I were rich, I’d have cut flowers everyday.” Not understanding what cut flowers were, I continued to gaze out the window at our unkempt yard with its onion flowers and dandelions. Suddenly, I started to get so excited, I began to shout, “We’re rich; we’re rich!” It was as if a light bulb had turned on in my head. We were rich, but not monetarily. We were rich in love, faith, and creativity. It is a mindset that has followed me ever since, and I quote Marlene Dietrich, "There is a gigantic difference between earning a great deal of money and being rich." I believe that difference is perception.

|Wild Fact About Me
||On my 24th birthday, I received an energy cleansing ritual and a birthday blessing both preformed by a voodoo chief in the Congo District of New Orleans. It was a very uplifting, enlightening, and affirming experience for me.
||Everything in moderation, nothing in excess.
|What Gives Me Hope
||Blank paper, feathers, sunrises, flowing water, laughter.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||increasing research funding/initiative for alternative energy resources.
|What/who changed my life and why
||Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka because of the lesson it teaches about self-worth and the value of life. Shall I live my life as a means to someone's end or be the end for which someone is living?
Also, The Life You Were Born To Live by Dan Millman. Affirming my intuition, this book inspired me and was one of the spring boards for my current lifestyle changes.
