Activist Aspirations Casual
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions "Kindness is my religion" -Dalai Lama  
Eating Habits Almost anything... :), Keep it local and organic  
Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Be kind and compassionate to all of our world while striving to embrace it. Love is not exclusive to humanity, it exists throughout the living world, and hopefully the universe. Love many, trust few, and always paddle your own canoe.
What Gives Me Hope The basic desire of most humans is to simply enjoy having a home, a loving family and a job, and that this commonality will eventually win out over all politics. We are moving closer to becoming 'One World, One People', and although this advancement is now measured in feet, it was once measured in inches, and will one day be measured in miles.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Quit and go fishing with the kids.
What/who changed my life and why My daughters home birth in 1978.
What Bugs Me Lack of Compassion and Respect, hypocrisy and ignorance, abusive people, intolerance  
Passions children and grandkids, Life In All It's Diversity And Wonders  
Inspirations proper use of intellegence, the beauty and wonder of our world, Words of Wisdom  
What Scares Me the GOP extremists, Religious Extremism, "Big Brother", loss of freedom and rights, ignorance and willful stupidity  
Role Models R F Kennedy, Dr M L King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi, Louis David Riel, Edward C. Tremble  
Quotation "Success comes in CANS, not Cants" (High School motto); "There are two ways of spreading Light: To be the Candle or the Mirror that reflects it"" (Edith Wharton)
Interests Spirituality/Philosophy, human rights and civil liberties, Alternate Energy Technology, Wildlife Habitat Conservation, Resource Conservation Technology  
Books Lifelong avid reader  
Music Love it all but Jazz rules
