Barefoot & Classy...
A description given by Andrei Zurek
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Man is not the creature of circumstances,
circumstances are the creatures of men.
We are free agents, and man is more powerful than matter.
Say what you mean and mean what you say because the people that matter, don't mind and the people who mind, don't matter.
Always remember you are unique, just like everyone else.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have survived...
Time and time again!
I have kicked cancer in the ass!
Got lost in the rainforest on the border of Burma and China; was supposed to return in 7 days and returned 23 later, lucky to be alive, to the Canadian Embassy looking mad for me!
Experienced the Taiwan quake; not a big deal for most but enough to make a comfy Canadian change her underpants!
And yes, a broken heart.
I THANK THE UNIVERSE FOR EVERY TEST AND TRIBULATION I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE GIVEN...
Teach, Learn, Share
I lived in Asia for years and am particularly attracted to rural living; just moved to a village of 30ppl with no local language skills and your not sure what to do with the live chicken they just gave you? I'm your gal, get in touch and I can help you out! As a result of my travel I have a beautiful network of ppl from around the world who I keep in touch with...who knows, if you are somewhere I have been chances are I could make your day brighter :)
I am an administrative professional to pay the bills so I can help you with anything from designing a slide show, holding an event or performing Excel spreadsheet magic.
Would LOVE to play the acoustic...every single person in my family plays the guitar except me...how'd that happen?
I really enjoy people who grace me with the chance to grow...teach me something about myself that I did not know or previously refused to look at...teach me how I love well and how I can love even more...
