Religion: I do not believe there is one corect spiritual path that is right for all. I believe that God is everywhere, everything,part and parcel of the very atoms and molocules of matter. God is beyond the limitations of our minds. God is both male and female and neither. God is Krishna, Jesus, Budahah.
I experience God/dess most directly through nature, animals and all things wild. Therefore, I follow a pagan path....recognizing the turning of the wheel both as the seasons and in my life. I celebrate the ancinet pagan holidays. I also recognize the universal truths inherent in hinduism and budhism and incorporate that into my spiritual and material life.

Intrests: I love to spin wool and other fibers on my Ashford spinning wheel.I am an avid natural dyer, finding non native dye plants growing in disturbed roadside areas as I travel. I then use them to dye my handspun wool and other fibers with. I am also an avid needle felter and wet felter.
I love to play my mountain dulcimer by myself and jam with Moss as he plays banjo. We dont sound to great at present, but are working on it and haveing lots of fun.
My other great love in life is the enjoyment of nature and all things wild. Be it through hiking, bird watching, swimming in lakes and oceans or wildlife rehabilitation.I enjoy the study and celebration of nature in any and every form. When I am in a forest, on a mountain, desert or beach..I am at absolute peace.
I alo enjoy rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife which I used to do professionaly for 10 years, when I lived a stationary life.I keep a comprehensive medical kit on the bus with me for wildlife emergencies. If I happen across an animal in need I stabalize it and tranfer it to the nearest wildlife rehabilitator, wherever I happen to be.
Other intrests include, green, enviromentaly sound technology and architecture, voluntary simplicity and bikeing.
Negative Traits: No ones perfect right? Like everyone else I have "issues".So,to avoid presentimg myself as a perfect human, the following are some of the negative personality traits that come out from time to time...
Can be self rightous at times and have a bad temper. Talk before I think ,obessive compulsive, impatient, like to provoke, question and buck authority and accepted norms and am very impulsive and unpredicatable.
