Introducing myself and my journal: Vision and Voice

About Me:
Hi everyone! I am really excited to become a part of this global womens community. I believe that the future of the world rests in the hands of women, our hands and that it has always been there and will always be there no matter our situation. I have been a traveler for the past 10 years and am in the process of settling my bones down back where I grew up in Minnesota. Most of the year I live in MN, where I am starting a wild medicine plant sanctuary on my family land by Lake Superior. There I cultivate and help to re-establish endangered medicinal populations, lead plant walks and study the green world. I also engage in urban community theatre productions in the city of Minneapolis through out the year. In the winters I head south to New Mexico and volunteer at Wolfsong Ranch, a large rescue for wolf-dog hybrids who have been abandoned and abused. In the next five years I am interested in becoming a midwife with skills in terminating pregnancy as well as helping birth beautiful healthy babies.

Again, I am so happy to be here and share with you all. Thank you!

My Passions:
song, ceremony, story, medicinal and edible wild plants, wolves and coyotes, women, birth and death, being self sustaining, dancing, challenging race, gender and heteronormacy, living in balance/walking in beauty, being held accountable and being honest

My Challenges:
staying in one place.

My Vision for the Future:
localized communities living in balance with the earth free from gender, racial, sexual and economic divides.

My Areas of Expertise:
emotional support, creative solutions to not having very much money and not spending it
