Where I'm From
I was born and raised on a sheep ranch/peach farm northeast of Sacramento, CA. My dad is a recovering Catholic, my mom's Buddhist. Just imagine holidays in my house, heh. *I* am a recovering Catholic/Mormon. I converted to Mormonism (LDS) when I was 18, and after a bad marriage and a wonderful baby boy, I divorced my husband and my religion. I have officially resigned from the mormon church as of October 29th, 2008 due to the hateful, hypocritical and bigoted involvement that the church had in promoting proposition 8 in the 2008 election year on the California state ballot. I have lived in California, Bristol UK, Utah, Colorado, New York, and spent a few months in the Philippines. I'm pretty moderate, most would call me libertarian. I could pretty much sum up my political views in one sentence: Leave Me The Hell Alone.

Who I Am With I live in Northern California(NorCal) fiance, my son, and three neurotic furbabies. Good times.

What I Am Up To
I'm essentially a Turbo Secretary (Administrative Assistant) for a software company. As for my free time, I sail. A LOT. I also enjoy cooking, wine making and tasting, reading, and several outdoor activities.

What I Am All About
I'm cheerful (I have the nickname Ra-Ra and Pinky), optimistic (with a side of sarcasm) and I do my best to respect and understand all those who come into my life. I have come to realize that there are so many paths to personal enlightenment, and it comes in all flavors, religions, and personal beliefs. I'm not sure where I am on my path, but so far, so good. I love learning about the world's cultures, and religions and I have a deep respect for others' personal beliefs. I put up with a lot of people judging me for a long time (and I in turn was judgmental because of it) and I am working every day to be open-minded to new ideas. I try to live by the philosophy to just be frickin' nice to other people, and I hope that others I meet are open-minded and nice to me, too. Because, ya know...there are a lot of people on this rock we call Earth, and it takes all kinds of people to make the world spin.

I have enjoyed reading other people's blogs, making new friends, and having interesting yet civil discussions. What I post is usually pretty boring, but occasionally I come out with a zinger if it's been one of those days , or something has touched a nerve...knowhutahmean? Thanks for stopping in, if this hasn't make you yak feel free to friend me; I hope you like what you read!

"I guess I could be really pissed off about what happened to me...but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst...and then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday."
