About Me

People who know me have nick name for me "Nature girl" :) I love to share my time in the forest on the regular base to pick medicinal or wild edible plants and turn into dinner :)
For some people I am health freak. I make everything from scratch and I am good at it. I love simple way of living. I think the less we have the happier we are.
I love animals, they are my best friends. I always said if I had a house on the country site I would have a zoo :) I lived on ranch with wild horses where I spend many nights during summer on pasture with them particular during the full moon I love so much and I felt privilege to be accepted by them as pack and earn their trust. Last may, I lost my dog who was my world to me, ( I rescue her from the street but in the reality she rescue me) that was the hardest and painful recovery I ever had to go through and that's when I began to write a poetry in English. I berried my preciouses friend by in the roots of500 years old cedar tree where we used to spend our time together just to listen a silence.
I work as Esthetician in the Spa and I love my job. I like to watch how grumpy people turn into relax and smiley one :)
I don't have much experience with the CS but I would like to confirm that I am strictly here because I like to travel and to meet interesting people from all over the world who can teach me something new and help me to see the world I didn't know before. I would be boring for people who just want to hang out in the bars and clubs to drink and smoke, because I do not do any of this stuff. I try to stay healthy because health is priceless and I need it to enjoy my life in the beautiful way.

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy listen to all kind of music but my soul and mind always get comfortable with classical music - piano and violin or New age - sound of nature. I really enjoy America, Britain or etc., got talent it's place where you can meet even trash man or homeless who will blow your mind with the powerful talent to tears and they do not even know how good they are. Kurt Nilsen, Ryan O'Shaughnessy, Brian Justin Crum.
Movies - "Hachi"; "Dances with Wolf", "The horse whisper", "Spirit", "Message in the bottle", "Notebook", Human Planet, Earth Planet and scientific documentaries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Shared my life with straight dog, horses and nature. P.S. After I got tied relationship with the nature I gain a lot of knowledge how to survive without relying on the grocery store :) The feeling is priceless :)
I used to be volunteer to dedicate 1000th of hours to rescue animals. And I guess it makes me feel that my life was not wasted but used in a good way.
Also, I try to recycle garbage and I have a deep respect for people who do that too. I always think where it's going to end up. I think humans are the dirtiest animals on the planet Earth and we are responsible for every creature who die because of our laziness and ignorance.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone has something to teach you about if we only learn how to listen. Even a silence can be your best teacher and of course animals ;)
