Introducing myself and my journal: the thing with feathers
Hello! I am excited to be joining this amazing virtual community. I'm a mid-age, married, mother of two teens. I have also been a preschool teacher, a nanny, a reading mentor/tutor, an ESL mentor/tutor, a flight attendant, a student, a traveler, and I have volunteered for several organizations. I'm a seeker of truth and wisdom, a compassionate human, a believer, a peacemaker, a shamanic priestess and a yet unpublished writer (other than posts). I also dance just for the sheer joy of it. I hike in the woods near my home nearly every day, stopping by the stream to connect to nature and all living things, to pray, and to express gratitude. I love life and love the earth. I love the journey of life, including the disappointments and harsh realities because there is always something to learn. I love humanity, for the most part, but I find violence toward any human or any living thing or destruction of the earth to be sacrilegious. Sometimes it is hard to be hopeful, but it is essential.

My Vision for the Future:
I envision a non-violent world, earth restored to balance and beauty, all people having access to land, natural food, clean water, education, and joy.
