About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring...sans planning

ABOUT ME

I love life. After teaching middle school science for 5 years, I've come to Australia to explore and experience something new. I think I've got a touch of Peter Pan syndrome...I never want to grow up...but I think it's just that I love feeling like a kid. I'm happy to answer any questions you have! and can't wait to hear your stories =)

PHILOSOPHY

Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill. Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt. Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench. Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back. The only path to serenity.

Teach, Learn, Share

As a 7th grade science teacher, I am a well of random science facts. Ask me!

I've decided that while religion/tradition/ritual makes me very uncomfortable, spirituality does not, and I love talking about and experiencing the different aspects of this with others.

I'm also love doing yoga or going climbing with anyone; novice or expert
