I'm a 45 year old married Mom of two grown children and an aspiring writer. I'm also a new Christian who still holds fast to my beliefs of human rights such as same-sex marriage and legalizing marijuana. I'm a lover of all things purple, classic rock & roll (Fleetwood Mac being at the top of that list), folk music, movies of all kinds (especially classic), European history, tattoos and my Lord and savior above all else. I'm a vegan (no meat or dairy products nor any animal clothing of any kind) for moral reasons and a survivor of bankruptcy. I will sometimes share personal insight about that horrific time in our lives when we didn't know where our next meal would come from, how we got through it & how we are now as well as my new journey into Christianity. You may not always like & agree with me, but you also never know where your next enlightened moment will come from. God opened MY heart and mind -- he can open yours, too.
