Had to stop by and sing my song of joy at having chosen a new username, finally getting an avatar (thanks, Michael!) and feeling terrific as I head towards the Summer which will mark my 2 year veg. anniversary.



I am now to be known as Earthsong -- formerly Gail. Guess I'm one of the older gang here since I'm 51 -- married with 3 kids, I live in NJ and work at the American Red Cross. I've always been into nature - love to spend time in the woods or at the shore - playing flute, hiking, painting. I also enjoy throwing pottery (at a wheel, not my family ) and birding -- hence my lovely new avatar, a beautiful Cedar Waxwing.



Vegetarian for reasons of compassion, ecology, health and spirituality. Haven't yet been successful in going all the way to Veganism, but I don't buy, use or wear any leather and try to find products (cosmetics and toiletries, for example) that are cruelty-free.



Sometimes it's kind of frustrating being the only Vegetarian in an Omni family, but we've got a lot of love there and I do the best I can. It's been absolutely wonderful finding VB -- for support and friendly like-minded folk.



Guess that's it for now. I've got to go.



Shalom,

Earthsong

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Nice to know I'm not the only "gently worn" VBer, PortableKitten. There do seem to be a majority of members who are, shall we say, just a bit younger.

Thanks so much, Gnarly! It is a Cedar Waxwing. In the last year I've really gotten into bird watching. There are so many amazing things out there in the world for those that can take the time to quietly watch them. Too easy to miss all the wonders as we hurry by, I think.
