I've been on live journal since 2001 and still maintain a fairly regular journal though my friends page has slowed down some.
I write about my life and interests which include photography, gardening, cooking, herbology, aromatherapy, music, cooking, movies, books and poetry.
Big supporter of LGBT community have done hospice work and domestic violence sexual assault counseling. I guess you could say I am a bleeding heart socialist.
I have a background in community counseling and currently work as a trainer/mentor writing programs, behavioral plans, teaching crisis management and supporting 56 staff who work with people with developmental disabilities assisting them to live successfully and independently in their own homes. (sometimes I write about that as well)
Spiritual with pagan leanings, I love the history of things, rituals, religions, philosophy, psychology and this whole business of being human. I feel right brained as I enjoy creating art and consider myself to be intuitive but am actually extremely left brained and LOVE to analyze life and people in all our facets.
Happily partnered for 25 years, newly empty nested but my grown children counted amongst my dearest friends. Family is important to me as is heritage, personal history and culture. I love to hear about people's personal culture!
I tend to shy away from too many politics as I loathe dogma and whether the lean is to the right or the left there seems to be so much exclusivity, anger and bitterness in such things these days.
For myself, Facebook is a post it note and lj is a love letter or conversations over tea with a friend. I am interested in people and their day to day lives, sharing what moves you and inspires you in life.
If you think we would enjoy one another please feel free to peek at my journal and add me.
