Kris "Mrs. B." Bradley, Interview #191

 Name: Kris "Mrs.B." Bradley
Where you live: Central New Jersey
What you do as a vocation or avocation?
I'm primarily a wife and mom, filled in with stretches of writing.
Your two favorite books:
I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchet
Your two favorite songs:
Lullaby by The Cure
Why you are interested in spirituality?
I can't remember ever not feeling that there must be something/someone out there watching out for us.  It took me a long while to put a name to it, but I've always felt that energy around me when I needed it.  Being raised in a home that didn't regularly practice any faith in particular, I was given the opportunity to really explore what spirituality and religion meant to me and find the perfect path for myself.
Your favorite quote:
"Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each." - Henry David Thoreau
Your favorite web sites:
I really enjoy Bishop In The Grove by Teo Bishop.  He's always contemplating, always growing and learning - and teaches some important lessons along the way.  It's everything a good Pagan blog should be.  I also really enjoy Facebook, where I participate in a great community of really positive people who come together every morning to share their blessings.
Your hero?
Jane Goodall. This is a woman who found her passion and has spent every minute since then devoted to making the world a better place.  

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
I think all lessons are continually ongoing and as changeable as the tides.  One I'm always working on is patience - with others, and with myself.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
Near water.  I find the beach to be the perfect balance of the elements, plus it's also a threshold between world (the world of the land and the world of the sea), which makes it a great place to commune with deity for me.

Editor's Note: Kris blogs in a number of locations. You can catch her writing at
