I would describe myself as kind, compassionate, honest, patient, open and sometimes scholarly. I can get very anxious at times. I tend to think deeply, but also try to be a friendly influence.
I've traveled a bit; I've been to China, Tibet, Japan and England so far. Most recently, I went to New York for a meditation retreat at an International Buddhist Festival.
I love tea, especially Japanese greens, Taiwanese oolongs, and pu'er (aged tea). I am also a fan of incense and aromatherapy.
I tend to be an idealist and believe in peace, compassion, and the power of the human mind. I consider myself a LGBTQ ally, a feminist, and a champion of human rights.
Politically, I am for anything that reduces suffering and promotes peace and harmony. I also see the immense importance of caring for the environment. Social justice is important to me.
I love to write poetry; I've actually self-published two books for the Kindle.
I try to transform whatever life brings so that I learn from the experience and grow as a person.
