To explore and be: the traveler, the dancer, the poet, the musician, the wanderer, the sun, the moon and all things interconnected
Live in the moment! Energetic, passionate, crazy, fun, social, ...sometimes quiet and introspective, curious...
I love to:
be on my feet, move, dance,run, garden, play, read, sing (to myself, in the shower or sometimes in front of people!...
learn, travel, be new in the world and bring the world into me...
create, create, create through words, movement, music, nature. ah, music--can play piano (when I want to), am learning cello (soul instrument but still tough), can play about eight chords on guitar and write songs...
be in nature: hiking, camping, healing...
I love dance, becoming aware of the body, watching bodies in transition, feeding the body in nourishing ways, being healthy, growing food, cooking...
always trying new things, new adventures and reflecting...
listening to people, collaborating, working together...
thinking, doing, thinking, doing, watching the world, learning and trying to make it a more beautiful, harmonious place...
Microcosms and macrocosms interconnected. What radiates from inside, shines into the world and the world reflects its energy back inside of us.
Compassion towards people, listen to ourselves, listen to each other as we all travel our own unique journeys and collide.
Eastern spirituality: mindfulness, the dialectic, acceptance, impermanence
