YES, it's been awhile .... I know. So many times I've come here to chat, sat here at this keyboard and thought better of sharing. Things change, life goes on, troubled times and joy walk hand in hand, I don't need to tell you that. I'm ok .... I've joined the ranks of the working masses (for a while) ... I've gained a kindle, iphone and roku box to test my tech savvy. My creativity is stuffed in a 12 by 12 room, a floor to ceiling jumbled mess (much like my current state of mind). I miss spontaneity ... discovery ... I dislike the dramas of suburban life .... good thing we can always rely on change!
I come from a long line of feisty resourceful women. I've studied various forms of herbalism over years of time and never get tired of it. I've owned an herb shop for the last 14 years and a traveling gypsy bus full of handmade goods, imports, herbal potions, incense, curios, books and more. My love for big city life introduced me to many people from different lands and cultures. I now find peace near ocean and forest.
"Doctor, I have an ear ache." 2000 B.C.—"Here, eat this root." 1000 B.C.—"That root is heathen, say this prayer." 1850 A.D.—"That prayer is superstition, drink this potion." 1940 A.D.—"That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill." 1985 A.D.—"That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic." 2000 A.D.—"That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root!"
"The only way to deal with an un-free world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." - Albert Camus
Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. ~Seneca
A great traveller is a kind of introspective who, as she covers the ground outwardly, so she advances inwardly. Lawrence Durrell
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!'" — Hunter S. Thompson
