Introduction I've described myself in the past as a mess of contradictions and strong convictions. Now, as my interest and focus moves out from my hill-top eyrie, I feel stronger and happier than I have in a long time, and more complete. I am striving to live the truth of my beliefs and values, for myself and my little boy as well as for the community I love to live in. The rose-coloured glasses have come off, but I still like a lot of what I see.
Interests I have so many interests and passions and not enough time/focus for them all! Try books and reading, web-surfing, food and cooking, painting and drawing, scrapbooking, writing, natural parenting, organics, nature and animals, photography...
