About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Pick more daisies

ABOUT ME

I enjoy travel, camping by a lake, having fun on the weekend (live music, farmers' market, dancing, dinner parties...) gardening stuff I can eat, knitting, lotsa music especially indie folk/rock, salsa, blogging and writing, working out e.g. running, dancing & new experiences. Also, I aim to live a lifestyle of self-sufficiency (simple, sustainable, health conscious living).

PHILOSOPHY

If I had my life to live over
I'd dare to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier that I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones.
...I would travel lighter than I have.
If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.
--Nadine Stair "If I had my life to live over"
