About me

Gender Female
Location Illegitimis nil carborundum, United States
Introduction I am many things including a mom, Amma, wife, published poet, writer, Archaeology student, cancer survivor as well as a cancer cohabitator (the bugger is renting space in my body), and MEN2a advocate. I try to live by this quote: “Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”
Interests Living does that count? ;), Buddhism, philosophy, mythology, history, sociology, archaeology, writing, fibromyalgia, POTS, MCAS, hEDS, MEN2a, medullary thyroid cancer, reading, researching (mostly MEN2a or health related things), and anything I can get my hands on.
Favorite Movies Armageddon makes me cry every single stinking time! Ugh! The Bucket List really touched me and made me think. Stepmom, that’s a tough one.
Favorite Music The odd things- Scottish bagpipes, Tibetan bells, windchimes, Native flute, Jazz, Indian music, and my favorite song is Moshav “World On Fire”
Favorite Books ALL of Robert Fulghum's books, Sir Walter Scott, Siddhartha, Becoming by Michelle Obama, Anything by Marek Halter (you know it's good when a non-Christian gets hooked), and some of Nicholas Sparks' books.
