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.
