About Me

Member of Letter Writers Alliance


Hi there! Im a human who is being and currently live in a small town near Portland, Oregon. That being said i am an artist and FREE SPIRIT! I'm a cook and a baker so cooking has been second nature for me all of my life. Friends come over to eat food at m y place and be loved on! It's just something I have always done is cook bake and share food! In the summers have been raising a big garden. I share part of the vegetables with others who don't have the ability to work in a garden and who love fresh veggies.

What i guess seems to be the most important thing to say is that i am creative and daily create something of beauty. Life is art and art is life in my world. For me it is always saying YES to art. Just living an artful life daily. That may look like so many things in so many ways and yet it is simple. Just see the beauty in everything as it is always there.

There is another important part to what makes me who i Am and that is the spiritual walk. So i am not regilious as I have found that to be another box one can be in. I’m not putting anyone down who chooses to be religious. I am saying i have seen that box and i outgrew it looking for something deeper within. I’m about BEING GOOD and DOING GOOD. I like being kind but I have learned that learning to live a good life is like learning how to be a better martial artist. HEHE!

It's great to live outside the boxes of life. For me that means to examine some of the beliefs that I was given and find out whether I want to continue believing in those beliefs or let them go. I have been actively dismantling beliefs that no longer true. This has lead me to a level of awakening that i cannot go back to being lost in hte world. It is just a fact of what is as one open themselves to the TRUTH. Am so grateful! Life just continues to amaze me and show me things that are beyond what i could ever imagine! The magic that is there when one can drop below conditioning is just beyond words! Nature continues to amaze me and it is with deep gratitude that i share this with all who understands what i am pointing to. There is a deep gratitude for all that has come my way.


Live with 2 cats named Baba and Claire. Am their caregiver and family. Anyone who has ever been with cats know that one doesn't own a cat. The best we can do is be in relationship with cats. Baba and Claire were both born in the wild. They have taught me so much, in that they are their own free spirit! Feed hummingbirds too! FInd feeding the birds to be a real gift in my life. It is such a wonderful way to relax and i can be with the birds for hours. They buzz around me and let me come close while they feed and go here and there. Both the birds and cats have taught me to live a less stressed life! But then i am an avid animal lover!


Everything coming into my house gets the stamp of approval of Baba! She has to see and sniff every swap! sometimes she gives a big meow when the mail comes!


I know this paragraph is probably most read in all of the profiles....HOWEVER you will not find here a laundry list of things either for or against. I’m not picky and if you read my profile then you see i enjoy most everything that can be sent over with LOVING KINDNESS. How one treats themself will work for me so i kind of figure that people coming here will be at a place within themself to see the other with love and good cheer. One will just know in their heart what to send me. What happens is that i tend to love it all. I have no problem giving hearts on my swaps either! People always continue to amaze me and send me the neatest cards and notes and all kinds of goodies which i pass on to others thru my swaps etc! We really are all ONE BIG FAMILY and that is how i see being on Swap Bot!


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!

Now lets get down to swapping and having fun doing our thing! Wont you be my snail mail neighbor? Hehehehe!

Comment: What an absolute joy to hear from you again, Kyra! It sounds as though you had a wonderful weekend that was good for the soul and the body. I am fascinated by the intuitive painting class. I know there are times that I have tried to create and my judgement about what I was making got in my way. Thank you for sharing with me!! I also quite enjoyed the card and the wee, sweet cat on the front of the envelope.
