Introducing myself and my journal: buddha and the chocolate box

About Me:
i'm 34 years old and i currently exist in a world of studying herbs and their medicinal properties. i say this because there are some days when i am completely immersed in a sea of information regarding plants and the subtle ways they can help to balance our bodies.

balance is a large part of my life. i'm a libra, the sign of the scales, and justice and fairness are of great importance to me. i view every side and angle of every story, so it may take me a while to formulate an opinion. however, when presented with gross injustice, i feel i can spot it immediately.

lately i have felt...well, i don't know. i suppose i have just felt "off" or unbalanced. it has been difficult to put into words and yet i feel it so clearly. to know me is to know someone who enjoys laughing and cutting up, but who also gets very emotional and does not like to see people being the butt of jokes.

i adore animals and sometimes think that i'd rather spend time with them. that said, i have seen the wonderful things humans can do. i feel sadness and wonder and hope when i look at the world today and i am very shy, except when it comes to writing. i feel like i can put my feelings and thoughts into better order when i write.

the title of my journal is taken from an album by cat stevens.

My Passions:
film, books, music, herbalism, the arts, human rights, animal rights, ecology, exploring my spirituality, helping people understand that they are loved, listening, birdwatching, nature in general, writing, photography, cooking and baking, crafts

My Challenges:
balancing the spiritual with the physical, depression, my relationship with food, looking at myself with love, kindness and understanding, realizing just how special i am

My Vision for the Future:
love. kindness. understanding. joy. laughter. equality. a world where everyone has just enough of what they need to survive. a world where people, especially women, stop judging based on appearance and start seeing others as totally equal.

My Areas of Expertise:
film, music, books, herbalism
