Years of personal and spiritual questing now finds me calling myself an agnostic that is still striving to understand "the mind of God" and how it integrate into most of our lives. When it comes to the ritual expression of my spiritually, I am more comfortable with pagan practices in general and particularly drawn to Celtic and Native American ways.
Politically, as many of us here, I lean liberal and still believe we can improve the world one vote at a time. Stewardship of the environment and tolerance for our diversities, both human and in all the other forms life takes, are passions of mine.
On the home front, I'm in the middle of modifying my home to living green and hope someday to share this space with friends. Would even be especially nice to create such a space together. Some of the plans envisions a meditation garden on the grounds. Also, a vegetable garden located on the roof in order to eat healthier while keeping it out of reach of the deer population and also better insulating the home. And of course creating comfortable areas in and out to share from time to time with close friends and family.
On the lighter side drawn to folk music, hot tubs and campfires and other places that spirit gathers. Enjoying time spent sailing, be it on a lake or ocean. Also very drawn to the country, having moved to NWNJ, where life comes at you a bit slower and nature seems a little closer. The days here might be enjoyed tending to a country garden or swimming in the local lake. Hiking or cycling to enjoy nature while trying to stay healthy. Riding a motorcycle or taking the old convertible for a spin down a county road. We might be going to find farm fresh produce or home made pies. It might be to spend time at a classic car show, a craft fair, a pagan picnic, a nudist camp or a weekend workshop or any gathering of good friends or family. Often sharing a glass of wine, good meal and great conversation. For now, these are some of the pieces of my life and what I hope to share.
