Hi dear vegan friends...

I wasn't sure whether to post this in the vegetarian or vegan group so I'll post in both because I may actually get a positive response and result from both.  I thought I'd also post here in the share network.  I'm currently living in Starke, North Central, Florida, and quite honestly I feel like the only vegan, let alone vegetarian, natural living natural whole food non-smoker conscious person in this ridiculous stupid god-forsaken town.  That's probably because I AM the only veg/vegan here!!! grrrrrrr    I can't travel too far, but I would really love to find and attend a cool uplifting fun vegan Thanksgiving unturkey Tofurky gathering where I can meet some really nice wonderful cool uplifting down-to-earth conscious aware vegans/vegetarians somewhere in the Gainesville area. 

While I was still living in California, I attended a gathering like what I speak of above and there were no hidden agendas or special speakers, just a nice pot luck event where everyone brought a 100% vegan organic whole food additive-free yummy meal and labeled the meal item with all the wonderful healthy ingredients contained in the dish.  I miss that camaderie connection so much and I would really love to attend and participate in something wonderful like that again!  Does anyone know of anything like this that they can inform me about?  I'm so tired of and feel sad being surrounded by all these meathead smoking toxic detergent/fragrance-addicted rednecks.  Talk about feeling like an alien...I sure feel like one here! *crying*  Anyway, I could sure use some help here, a caring kind good listening ear, and a dear caring friend who understands how I feel.

Please feel free to email me if you have any thoughts or just to say hello...

Blessing, *hugs*

 "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."  (Matthew 5:5)Who are the meek?  I guess it depends who you ask, but I think the meaning implied in the passage above has somehow been lost over the years.  Perhaps that'...

  It is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul.  There is much to be said about this.  You can see emotion through the eyes, can you not?  You can often tell if a person is lying or not by looking into their eyes.  Wha...

When we are born, we are aware of our spiritual self.  Actually, this is the part of ourselves with which we are most aware!  The body is new.  Wow!  Look at those fingers and toes!  As to the mental aspect of self, we were ha...

I no longer choose to trust the medical system with caring for my health in any significant way.  If I need stitches or an emergency accident occurs.  But for my ongoing health care, no thank you.  I do not believe in their ways. I obj...

The turning of the calendar year brings hope of new things, but the truth is that new things occur every moment in time.  And just as we have the tradition of making resolutions on New Year's Day, we can also resolve to change how we express ...

Christmas is for everyone, whether Christian or not.  Christmas is an occurrence of something available to everyone, regardless of their indoctrination.  It is rather according to faith.  Faith in what?  Faith in the Power of God,...

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped me along the way.  In other words, everyone I've ever met, and many I haven't.  I believe everyone who crosses our path or our mind is there for a reason, whether we re...

Spirituality is, of course, different from religion.  This is in part why we changed our description to that of being an interspiritual church rather than an interfaith church, because interfaith hints at religion, meaning we are a church of all...
