I am 48 years old and the mother of two wonderful children. I study and attempt to practice Tibetan Buddhism. I spent my youth satisfying a raging case of wanderlust, traveling, living and working as a volunteer on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, and raising a mountain lion while working for an animal trainer in Florida. I enjoyed many other incarnations before my need to experience everything was quenched enough to allow me to settle down and raise a family. I find myself alternately thrilled with life and appalled by the things I see and experience. I wanted a place to air my thoughts,to give them life, give them breath, and to set them free. In the process... freeing myself.

I have read many books, articles and internet teaching sites on Tibetan Buddhism. There are a few authors that I must note here. It is largely through their writings that I have obtained most of my understanding and the ability to attempt to interpret it here for you all. My heartfelt gratitude goes to them.
With extreme reverence, His Holiness The XIV Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, Pema Chodron, Jack Maguire and Lama Surya Das.
