I'm so happy the troops are coming home from Iraq! So many people have sacrificed so much and for so long, and it's time to bring them home. I'm glad Obama kept this promise, and I hope that the work the troops did over there - regardless of how misguided the Bush administration was in starting this war - yields benefits for the US. To anyone who served and who happens reads this: Thank you for your courage and welcome home!!!!!
I'm into lifting weights, running, and biking. In general, I'm a hit-and-run athlete. I've done hapkido, snorkling, deep sea fishing, karate, rockwall climbing, horseback riding, parasailing, hiking, etc. I will try anything active!
I'm also a migrant creative and have expressed myself through painting (done shows and sold stuff!), drawing, novel writing, poetry (published!), songwriting, playing piano, and guitar.
And, yes, I am a Zen Buddhist.
