To always immerse and absorb in, contribute to and enhance, and learn from my surroundings.
I'm a busy body. I love moving, dancing, cooking, gardening, hula hooping, swimming, skipping, swinging, yoga, hiking, climbing, biking and so much more. I also love to make art out of just about anything and everything. I work with many healing modalities and I love to share but not to preach. I enjoy the company of children though I don't have any of my own. And I love animals. All kinds.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I once encountered a mountain lion on a hillside, alone, around midnite. I thought I was following my dog until I saw it's sleek body and long tail slink over a woodpile where it stopped, turned and looked at me with glowing yellow eyes. I turned to discover that my dog had dropped behind. The big cat didn't budge but rather waited for me to slip away
S-L-O-W-L-Y...........and thankful - for the rare encounter - and to be alive!
I've twice held a hummingbird in my hand after they'd entered my house. After all of the panic and frantic energy, they both just sat relaxed, resting and looking at me while I admired their beauty. Hummingbirds are my favorite and definitely a totem animal for me. Such a blessing.
And for some reason, I always enjoy seeing birds take fish from the Sea. I tend to think the fish must have thoroughly enJoyed their last breath-taking views..........
