Hello Everyone! My first name is Kyra and i live in a small town outside of Portland Oregon. Im not so sure i enjoy living in this small town because i have recently discovered that my neighbor has been stealing my water. YES, it is the Wild West here! There are some complications with discovering this and I am about ready to finish closing in on him and calling the Police as soon as i have the evidence. It has been a pain to outwit him and i have really learned to speak up in a town where it appears they dont like smart women! Haha! Crazy what i have been thru but i will not let anyone walk over me, Ill have a powerful story to tell coming up......no one should ever have their water stolen from their neighbor and i have found out it is somewhat common. As things get worse with the economy people will need to know that it is very possible to steal water from their neighbor. Learn to read your water meter which in my town no one would answer the questions about reading the meter. I learned myself and it was not easy. That was partly how i saw that this man was taking my water. Also of course my bill as it was so high. If people talk to one another in town this is less likely to happen because people will know what is “normal” for a water bill. Water is a gift and a lot of us take it for granted.......
I’m a cat lover. Baba, my Egyptian High Priestess Cat has gone on leaving her cat life behind. She really enjoyed getting all the snail mail that people over the years sent me. She had to sniff every piece of mail that came into my place. She would hiss when she smelled another cat! That was her way. She always had to be the first top cat! So I still have Claire her half sister who is not 19. Claire is very sweet! I’m so glad that she is with me. She is not difficult at all. Just loving......
I’m creative and have been an artist all of my life. So creativity is just second nature to me. I love to express myself both with word and with marks making art. I’m not afraid to us any medium that art will inspire in me. So whether i am painting, printmaking or batiking there is a way to express myself. I enjoy using the common letters of the English language and creating a story to share with someone else. I had no idea all of the stories that lie within me.
I care about my fellow human being. So being kind does matter. I also at times have had to really get in someone’s face to get my message to back off buckwheat! Sometimes our fellow man just doesnt seem to read body language and the nuances of what it means to respect someone’s right to be themself. I have run into my share of angry hateful people and as we go thru so many changes now with the Pandemic and so many other things that will unfold in the future, people who are open, kind and caring will make it thru these times in ways that when we look back we wont understand it all. We need to remember to be kind and yet when someone pushes our boundaries and does not respect us as humans we must let them know we will NOT TOLERATE SUCH BEHAVIOR. So call me a REBEL, yes I AM. We cannot turn our faces from what is showing up now when we know it is not ok. We all need to find our voice and speak it to others when we see things that are not right in being good for beast and man. YES, I am a REBEL if someone wants to know. Some of us have to be. Look at Ghandi. Look at all the souls that have made a big difference for others. We all need to really ask ourselves what can I do at this time to make the world a better place.
Ive been growing my own food now for 6 years. I have a place where i can go and raise my own food so i am well into the growing season now. I raise all Kinds of veggies and it is all Organic! So i carry hoses and do all of the watering by hand. I love eating fresh veggies as they make a big difffernce in our health and how our bodies age over time. I rarely eat out at a restaurant because what i can make and eat is so much cheaper and healthier for my body! I enjoy working hard physically as well!
SWAPPING I really am into hearing from other human beings. So most of my swaps are about writing and sharing ideas. I enjoy beautiful Postcards and beautiful stationery that people share their ideas on! I like the thinking that goes on behind a given swap. So if you are my partner please be open and write something bout yourself or your life. Tell me something that might be hard for you to share. I appreciate your honesty because all humans have problems. Life is problematic! If one cannot accept that one lives in some great denial. Just be honest and real. I really appreciate your honesty and you will find me swapping in letters and notecards and Postcards categories.
TEAS I enjoy most teas and if after receiving the tea and it does not appeal to me, i will pass it along. I do enjoy tea. I like good teas and so some unusual teas can appeal to me. Please though do not send me tea that comes from a country that i cannot read what is in the tea. Also too do not send me old teas or teas that have been set around and are able ready to break open if they have paper linings. One other thing please dont pass me the teas you dont want. I receive these on somewhat a regular basis and i can tell that someone is just trying to get ride of them. That does not sit well with me. Send me something you would like to receive. I do drink caffeine as it does not bother me. I do like herbal teas and teas from Yoga teas as well. Most of teas tthat i have received from Swaps have been good! So thank you everyone!
REMBERING WHAT IT IS ABOUT!
Just remember we are all human here. So take a risk and get out of your comfort zone and write something daring to me. Write about your life and tell me something that is bothering you. I can hold the space for you. I think it is beautiful to be able to share yourself because we are all choosing to swap. It is really touching to have someone write something deeper than the day was sunny and really touch the human spirit that we all share. Just take a deep breath and write to another human being taking a risk. It’s ok to take risks they lead to some beautiful experiences......
WRITING and OTHER THINGS
Am a closet writer. What i have found out since coming on Swap Bot is that i have something to share and say. It keeps oozing out in the pcs and in the art swaps that i keep signing up for. Stories, quirky facts, drawings, artwork and information comes floating to the surface of the mind and i want to immediately get it down. If you consider yourself a writer then you understand one has to GET IT DOWN NOW!
I hope we can all remember to have a sense of humor and to remember we all choose to swap to one another. Let us all laugh more and enjoy the moment because we never know what our future holds. I send loving kindness to all who end up reading this last sentence! BE WELL!
