When I head off to work full of dreams and ambitions of doing good in the world and someone dear to me says: "Have a lovely day at the orifice dear"... and then I do~
I meet the most amazing people and have the best fun ever with them~
It's intimate on all levels, it's always changing and different from moment to moment and experience to experience~
I'm always amazed and never bored~
I love the relationships I build with people~ Some have lasted the length of my career~
I'm able to give back into the world more in this profession than any other I have had~
Subsequently, it is thru giving that we also receive...
It's kind of a "Princess Diana meets Mother Theresa" kind of thing~
Take photos... Lots of them... Thousands actually...
I love anything that involves me being naked~
I hike with my wolf, kayak, grow tons of food, g crabbing at the coast, bike, track elk/buffalo/cougar etc, paint, draw, do performance arts shows, theater, cook, rappel, wrestle, sing, write music and play guitar, I write pros and poetry, occasionally martial arts, laugh, more laughing, followed by laughter, swim, scuba dive, snorkel, feed sharks, feed sting rays, travel, pee outside, research medical things, study all kinds of things from tobacco to chocolate, wine to coffee...
I grow plants for humming birds and bumble bees~ They are great pollinators in my yard~
I also run a homeless provision program I call trails end west~
It used to include needle exchange but now I just provide food, clothing and laundry vouchers for folks in general besides sheets, bedding, household items, hygiene items for women in transition~
