About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Portland to ??? All over California mostly :)

ABOUT ME

My glass is definately half full, I love meeting new people, traveling, and spending time with all my wonderful amigos and family!

"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intellingent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded." Ralph Waldo Emerson

PHILOSOPHY

"All my days I've been searching, to find out what this life is worth
through the books and bibles of time I've made up my mind
I don't condemn, I don't convert, this is a calling have you heard
bring all the lovers to the fold, cause no one is gonna lose their soul
I don't want to fight, hey let's go fly a kite
there's nothing that we can't cure,
and I'll keep you in my arms for sure
so don't let nobody stop us, free spirits have to soar"
