Here are the questions given to me to answer from Sally G. Cronin’s, https://awakeningwildflower.com/, https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/:
1.Can you tell us about yourself in 100 words or less?
I am a nature wanderer and lover of life, a waterfall luster that includes swimming for miles(literally) feeling my most freedom and peace there, this qualifies me as a lake lusting mermaid as well, I thought I was a mom first but they all grew up and left home and my son recently grew his wings way faster than I can process and flying the heavens in fighter jets. What I found out recently is that in all my studies and all the wonderful knowledge I have built over these years, it really comes down to I’m me and that envelopes a ton of passions that all lead to nature.
My blog was created to be all about encouragement and a creative invitation to allow your own thought provoking inspiration to bubble up, in all kinds of ways and perspectives. .
3.What is the strongest memory from your childhood?
Living in the mountains, precisely why I am so drawn to it now, it was my refuge and still is.
4.Can you tell us more about where you live and why you call it home?
I left my home, my personal training gym and spa when my son got cancer almost 5 years ago. I never looked back, it was a new journey to invest all I am and have into my child.
( A lot here in the middle)
I live in the sunshine right now and am blessed to have more than what I need and a support system around me that is rock solid unconditional love to go through the exploration of a new self after the loss of my child.
6.Is there a country that you have not visited but is on your wish list?
I would love to go to Indonesia, really, I would love to experience as many as I can in my life.
7.Who is your favorite author and why?
I love reading and have so many and my favorite changes, its completely in the moment for me. I’m usually reading new things I can grow from.
8.What is your favorite meal?
I love raw foods and am super creative with food so this one too is dependent on the moment. Id say probably fresh juice in my juicer tops it all for me.
9.What is your favorite musician and can you let us have a YouTube link so that we can listen to them? I would say anything Tim McGraw and Faith Hill …………….
10.What is your favorite film and why?
Lion King, it was always a movie my son and I watched and had mom and son dinner dates together up until his last days and then he wanted to watch Tarzan with his entire family around. I’d say those two because they remind me of him and our time. I don’t own a TV and never have so I’m not a TV or movie buff.
11.If you could live in another time.. decade or century.. what would that be?
In the 50s and 60s for sure when you could dance in the streets and there was no traffic or social media and nature was everywhere, you didn’t have to drive miles to it, and you spoke to people on the phone and not computers.
