The best symbol to identify me is like the tattoo I have of a chameleon. The best way to understand my spirituality is to take in the beauty of any tree. Everything I need to know about birth, life, death and immortality can be summed up in the life of a tree! I am a creator. If I can figure out a way to make something I see with my own hands I do it. My favorite craft is jewelry making with wire….I’m a wire bender. I love to do anything creative – writing, drawing, painting, cloth crafts, wire crafts, singing, repurposing things, taking pictures. I love Mother Nature and all her masterpieces, whatever form. Mother is everything to me – my friend, confidante, therapist and muse. Walking, meditating, praying and doing Tai Chi/interpretive dance in her presence is how I have “church” – nature is my church. The expanse of the sky and earth below is the only place large enough sometimes to take on what burdens I have to shed!
Some of my mottos: Nothing I’ve been through, good or bad, has been for no reason. It is my responsibility, when given the opportunity, to share my experience, strength and hope with others who are facing what I’ve been through. Always try to Lead by Example! Even if you positively impact one life of any kind….you’ve done well.
