Why you are interested in spirituality?
In my opinion, it is our single reason for existing on this plane, on this planet, in this dimension -- to experience many material occurrences over numerous incarnations, so that we can grow spiritually to become our best spiritual selves and evolved spiritual beings eventually. How we respond to those situations as presented to us throughout life, or lives, determines our
spiritual growth, and thus our individual forward movement and participation in our collective spiritual movement. It is the purpose of our lives. To learn fully, to do no harm to self, no harm to others and be our best spiritual selves at all times. All we know can be covered with these simple dictates, if we don't over-think and complicate things. It is important to remember however, that if we are on this plane, we probably are in the kindergarten group of the universe.

Your favorite quote:
"Never make someone a priority when you are only an option to them" -- Author Unknown. I find it important to keep our energetic balance ever in perspective, as that is part of our quest for spiritual growth. Don't over take, or over give to the point of being spiritually lopsided. This sums it up! The Creator neither wants doormats or predators.

Your hero?
That changes daily, usually according to whomever I find who is living their lives to the fullest, with changing and improving the world as their evident goal. Right now it is my friend Dashanaba who just hustled up 5,000 pairs of donated eyeglasses for villagers in Ghana who are all losing their eyesight because they are too far away from clean drinking water to get it, and often resort to drinking the sea water that they live next to in their village, and are thus, losing their eyesight. Often, it is either the organization Kiva, or Water for People.

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
To maintain patience even when faced with acts of people who display extreme disregard for the safety, health, well-being and concern of others in their path, or worse, under their care.

A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
Almost any ocean or by the water. In Atlanta, at a lovely park called Sweetwater.
