2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
I moved to Ashland in 2008 to work for a spiritual author. I found my life partner here and fell in love with with this beautiful place. I am most inspired by the community of souls who deeply love and care for our planet.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
I'm interested in networking with others, learning many new things, and participating as an activist in those causes that protect the Mother and all life.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
My JOB IS my Joy of Being... I am a massage therapist and love what I do! I'm grateful to be doing massage for over 22 years. I'm interested in learning more about the wild edibles and the native medicinal plants in the area. I am delighted most by being in nature.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
