About Me The End of Imagination
"The only dream worth having, I told her, is to dream that you will live while you're alive and die only when you're dead… To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."

–Arundhati Roy, "The End of Imagination"

If only ten of you go to the above link, I will have accomplished one of my goals in another step toward ending the genocide in Darfur. May you also be inspired to join the most powerful anti-genocide movement in the history of the planet (or simply answer the 3 provocative questions after clicking the link)!

"Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."

love,
mary

I aspire each day to be
loving, kind, patient, generous, caring, compassionate, socially responsible, an avid advocate voice for those who cannot speak for themselves such as the trees, animals, seas, some of our human friends... i support community supported agriculture and buy organic, cruelty free products yet I work on consuming less materialism in the world...I hope to travel, live and work in central america some day. I wish to create beauty in the world for all the days of my precious, treasured life where love is everything.
music, how i love music!
