Self Portrait

Rambling of the day,

There are so many things in the world

that are inexcusable-

how do we chose what to do. 

People ask me

How I Prioritize — I see what appears to me

but on my mind now is my

family

but also friends, neighbors,

refugees,

climate change.

Recycling in a new town,

living gently. 

To

Protect Innocent animals. 

Fight for 

Children being exploited

or trafficked - @Polaris_project 

No beauty contests ,

No pedophiles 

Every life matters

Yes,

I feel overwhelmed.

Even scared sometimes.

We must live courageously

Even in a time

where all we do is monitored. 

Our cameras are

taped over -

Who we support is watched very closely.

We can never know ALL 

about a subject. 

A cause.

An article.

You can retweet something 

you may not know all about

and that might make you think - 

should I have done that?

Am I in trouble ?

Because

maybe it’s not true, or

partly true. 

Or you have been tricked -

Who has written it?

For what reason ?

#Paranoia - #Propaganda

I find myself reading

and re reading 

and wanting to share.

But - 

even I think twice -

rarely. 

But-

I turn to people I am confident 

know better than I

#JulianAssange -

his voice is missed -

he has been silenced for a reason- he’d have an intelligent and unique take on all this garbage on the news.

would feel more comfortable

Its hard to watch the news.

I can assure you if you only watch one channel like @CNN 

you should also watch @RT_com

I think

@RedactedTonight is a great show - 

he delivers very honest information with a sense of humor.

And

When you see narcissism in powerful positions

recognize it as a sickness, unfit to lead. 

Greed, 

Being afraid 

enables this - speak out.

I get hurt

because I want to believe. I want to

see the best in everyone.

But 

there are bad people 

with bad intentions.

Small living - 

less consuming -

#socialism is not a bad word - 

it’s misunderstood / my dad says it’s when you know where your taxes are going -

Living as an artist

Sex is art

Who

are your influences ?

This was written quickly.

Husbands,

@MrTommyLand

#ricksalomon 

@kidrock

and my parents

shaped me -

taught me good and bad -

right and wrong

Boyfriends come and go but real commitments 

test you on every level.

I hope people still want to get married -

We are stronger in pairs. 

Don’t let them keep you dumb. Sick and alone. You’re easier to

Control this way. Watching TV all day or on pharmaceutical drugs. 

It’s more fun to be with a partner. 

And be happy - in a world that doesn’t want you to be happy or powerful. 

To be faithful.

And to only replace ourselves.

Not more than 2 kids.

Anything else seems selfish in these times when the

world is overpopulated

#zeropopulation

Rich people are out of touch.

Not wanting

#middleclass. This is obvious, brainwashing -

Beware - #read, go to #museums, #galleries- 

The good things in life are #free 

Raise kids the best you can. 

Give independence young.

If you need a nanny

don’t have kids!-

I’ll never forget what I learned from my funny family

#picklestopearls

My great Auntie Vie

had a unique zest for life

and men -

she was a beautiful hostess

with no money

but she knew how to have fun

being a woman.

And @alexisvmakeup Alexis Vogel

amazing women who taught me so much. I was lucky to know them.

Girls need women to show them the way. #continuumconcept #mothers 

Like boys

need men #robertbly #fathers

I’m just a small town girl 

from

#Ladysmith

#VancouverIsland #BC #Canada

I can reflect on my wild little life and honestly say.

I made it around the world and am blessed to make it back where I came from in one piece.

Happy that I can bring something home to 

Inject love and resources into my home town -

That feels good -

I think many can relate to this.

Realizing you don’t need more,

but less -

Success is finding your purpose - 

to not be a burden.

To help people, 

society -

realize 

that’s what life is about. 

It’s not about hoarding 

or leaving trust funds- 

I have enough faith in my kids to make their way. 

Trust fund kids are a bore and unattractive. 

It was fun to build careers along side
