My journal entries are usually spontaneous and sometimes more polished. I've begun locking down most of my posts to friends only because of all the spam that comes through. I I value the friendships I've made here and feel privileged to read other's posts. This journal has allowed me to express my feelings about situations that few in my actual life even know about. And I have received much support that has gotten me through some tough moments. I love to write and have been doing so more and more. My dream is to be free to live as I please, apart from the 40 hour work week and consumer culture. I am a stylish frugalista yoga practicing, newbie belly dancing, hippie, Sufi, gardener and writer. Namaste.
