"When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound, in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free."

Be the change you want to see...

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

For thousands of years, marijuana has reduced symptoms
for the seriously ill effectively, and has helped improve
their quality of life. Dozens of medical and health
organizations endorse or allow patients access to
medical marijuana with their physicians’ approval.
Marijuana has been used therapeutically to control
pain, alleviate nausea and vomiting in cancer
patients due to chemotherapy, treat wasting
due to HIV/AIDS, combat muscle spasms
associated with multiple sclerosis and more.

To date, 12 states have passed medical marijuana
laws. While the laws differ from state to
state, they all work to protect patients and caregivers from criminal charges associated
with their medicine.

Seriously ill patients have the right to effective therapies. To deny patients access to such a therapy is to deny them dignity and respect as persons.

Please sign this petition to allow medical marijuana use and tell your friends, too! Thank you.

Last night as I was sleeping
I dreamt -- marvelous error! --

that I had a beehive

here inside my heart.

And the golden bees
and sweet honey

from my old failures.

Wild Fact About Me I like to put some upbeat music on really loud and dance and sing with abandon when I'm by myself!
My Philosophy Do not judge. No one is blameless and appearances often deceive, or at best, are misunderstood.
What Gives Me Hope Jesus and God and my nieces and all animals and nature.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Create a way for resources to be used more effectively for taking care of the necessities of life for everyone before ear-marking money or resources toward projects that benefit the elite few. Garner the resources (volunteers, money, buildings, whatever) to ensure good healthcare for all. Make spay and neutering mandatory and enforce it for those who decide to disregard it. For the poor animals who are already excess baggage, trap and sterilize them and then find anyway needed to care for them, even as ferals. These are not insurmountable problems if we would ALL pull together and offer a little of ourselves...time or money or compassion...everyone has something to give. We are a rich country. It is time to do better.
What/who changed my life and why My Mom! I have been a manic depressive for 30 years, but I did not know this early on. I self-treated to cope with how I felt and eventually found myself in trouble.

My Mom stood by me, even when most of my family didn't understand mental illness (some still don't), and even when I did not love myself. Her unconditional love and belief in me saved me. Still does. Her example showed what love truly is and how lucky I really was.

Passions feeding the hungry people and animals, making a difference, Supporting Mental Health issues, My cats!!, cure for multiple sclerosis, guinea pigs, Dolphins - Whales, tigers of any kind, Pandas, spirituality, reading, other cultures, nature, music, laughter, family  
Inspirations God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, animals-they love unconditionally, my cats, good people, my family, understanding, to fulfill my purpose on earth, the beauty of nature  
What Scares Me being alone, uncontrollable pain, my nieces well being, Religious Extremism, Satan, "Big Brother", tornados and earthquakes, drought, Losing the ones I love, illnesses, global warming  
Role Models Jesus, sister, my family, Mother and father, Mother Teresa, Dalai Lama  
Quotation Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.
