Things I Like

bright colors
the ocean mountains
dark chocolate letters/e-mails from people who share my interests

pretty bowls

shells images and handmade art with positive messages

Things I Like to Do

I love taking walks and taking photographs of flowers and trees and interesting natural and man-made textures. I like to try and capture a different view. I like taking macro photos of flowers. Geometric patterns in nature and architecture intrigue me, such as the repetitive pattern of supports under bridges

I love to connect with others who are independent thinkers -- who like to question and wonder and be amazed at serendipitous happenings and curious dreams. While I am not religious, I am deeply spiritual, and love learning about spirituality and different views. I've enjoyed reading Neale Donald Walsch and Joel Osteen. Their writings make me think.

I love watching the change of seasons and the patterns in nature. I enjoying finding wisdom everywhere I look. It's important to me that I contribute something positive to the world.

I try to put into practice things that are for my highest good and the good of the world. I try to recycle and buy organic foods as much as possible. I have begun to notice that I've collected a lot of stuff -- in addition to art supplies -- and am trying to cut down on the clutter. So I try to buy only things I really need and can use rather than just things that will collect dust on the shelf.

Response: I'm really surprised to see that you rated me a 3. Yes, I was slightly late. But I let you know that ahead of time and explained some pretty major extenuating circumstances that was the cause for my lateness. I thought you understood.

Comment: I just have to tell you that this is one of the best letters I've ever received on Swap-bot. It was heartfelt and honest and I could definitely identify with so much of what you said about writing. It does us so much good, so why do we put it off? Best of luck with the knitting (what a great cause) and with your writing, as well. Thank you for sharing your letter with me. Peace.
Response: Wow! I'm glad you enjoyed my journal entry that much. I can ramble a bit when I let my thoughts wander. But it IS what my heart is thinking/feeling, so I let it roll. ;-)
