Happy' slide story has been a huge influence and inspiration to me for years! My husband passed two and a half years ago, after 24 1/2 blissful years married..wow how the time flew! He was 13 years older than me, we travelled through parts of India/Nepal for our honeymoon voyage, spending a month in discourse at Rajneeshpuram, in Pune, with my husband's guru. I am the lucky mamma of our eight blissful, beautiful children, ages 8-24. I have always been an active seeker..completed a double major in art history/ religion in modern art/ thought, at Bowdoin College, Maine. I am currently working overtime to try to raise funding/ materials yo covert my garage into my photography/art studio so I can work from home mainly, fitting with my stay home mommying...I am also filming a documentary now, teaching myself the art of making a digital movie, and writing a book on the same subject..my subject is 102 years young!
2 ~ What is your "JOB" (aka Joy of Being)? What especially delights you?
Photographic portraits, the birth time, life, and any other moments of this blissful life! Writing, painting, sculpture, classical piano, most dance...singing! Gluten free and raw food making, for my eight children, and friends.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community?
I am new to your community, but have wished for years to visit you all. However, my husband's illness was very intense, demanded ALL of our resources, so we are just now ready to all help mommy rebuild her career. My birthday is coming the last day of November, and wow would I love to come out there with my youngest 8 year old daughter for a week, to enjoy being with you all, and I can offer photography and/ or help making food..I am drug/ alcohol free, wheat/ sugar free, 100% organic for the past 30 years..this youngest child of mine was 100% raw vegan for her first 6 years, breast feeding that whole 6 years(I was ages 42-48)..my husband's doctor said at one point, what's your wife doing, 'cause by our books, you should have died 6 years ago(I made 100% organic raw vegan for me and my babe, so he could have as much as he wished of raw foods..)
4 ~ What do you value most in life? Which virtues do you most admire in people? And, how do you feel we can deepen, expand and enhance our community?
I do not yet know too much about what you are already doing for community outreach, etc. I just know I am impressed with the ability to give of herself, of Happy..
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions, Sedona businesses and events have you been exploring?
My two eldest boys are traveling out there soon, in one week..I hope they will be safe(18 and 22), so I sent them a link to your site..do you accept work/ exchange visitors? They are both very helpful, and still healing a lot after the loss of their dad.
6 ~ Please share a few quotes, poems or lyrics that most embody your essence.
"I will try to do six impossible things before breakfast!"-Alice in Wonderland..
"Trying to be the changes I wish to see in this world.."-from Gandhi..
