- I consider myself a generalist, a dreamer, a visionary, an idealist. I walk both worlds, the inner world of spirit and this outer world we all share in. I have real power, the power of a strong connection to the earth and the power of truth and resilience.
I am committed to being effective in bringing about the changes that must take place in the minds and hearts of people so that we can live in peace and harmony with each other and all life on this planet.
I grew up in the fifties in Lansing, Michigan. My father was a bricklayer, my mother a teacher. I have a strong identification with the working class and ordinary people, and was always quick to defend the underdog and play the devil's advocate.
My strengths are being able to see the big picture and getting to the heart of the matter. I consider that I am a fairly good writer, having worked at this craft my entire life, but I once had a professor who said my true genius was in speaking.
Along with most of the people on this planet, I am seriously concerned with the present state of affairs and lack of balance in the U.S. military dominance.
I am presently teaching English in China. My profession is an ESL teacher, which I have been doing off and on for over 20 years. I have a Master's degree in TESOL from Michigan State University, a Journalism degree from San Diego State University with an emphasis in Public Relations, and a Library Media Assistant AA degree from Pasadena City College.
Research is my passion and main past time, even before the advent of the Internet. I worked in the library at Michigan State University before my son was born in 1986, where I pursued research topics that I was interested in.
When I was in my early twenties, I worked on a book on women's health care as part of a book team at the Feminist Women's Health Center in Los Angeles, doing research at UCLA's medical library that led to a new view of a woman's clitoris. The book is still available in print, "A New View of a Woman's Body."
I am working again with a team of writers on another book with the working title of "Opening Our Hearts and Sharing Our Dreams of What May Be" to share our visions and action plans for the young people coming of age (between the ages of 16-21) and support them in carrying out what needs to be done to manifest the world that they want to have for themselves.

Hang onto your hats, because 2014 brings a year of whirlwind change to our consensual reality. It is a year of remembering who we are, what we’ve done (and a lot of it isn’t pretty), and what we haven’t done in our abnegation of responsibility as citizens of our world.&… Read full post »
Apparently the Mayan Calendar ended in December this year, not 2012. So we are now at the end of time as we've known it. What does that actually mean?
My sense of it all is that everything that has been, is and will be are coming together. With the push to… Read full post »
I have been quite interested in the story about China declaring an air defense identification zone, which includes the Diaoyu Islands. It seems that there is quite a diplomatic flap over it, and possible military repercussions. I have been dismayed by comments that characteriz… Read full post »
Usually I only post political messages, but today I decided to write a very personal one about learning to baby my body. It is part of the process of shifting to a higher level in everything that I do, which is how I believe we can bring about the paradigm shift… Read full post »
The war propaganda machine is gearing up to prepare us for an attack on North Korea. Kim Jong Eun, the young leader of North Korea who stepped into his father's shoes more than a year ago upon his death (quite reluctantly, it appeared to me), has been villainized, ridiculed, threatened, and… Read full post »
There is radioactive water leaking from pits at Fukushima. The storage pits for the radioactive water were inadequately lined with thin plastic. Also, workers at Fukushima are living in terrible conditions, some do not even have cots to sleep on. There have been electrical outages and a m… Read full post »
What would it take to stop the U.S. drive for hegemony and demilitarize our economy? WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
I have some ideas. I want other people to join in with their ideas.
Here’s my list.
1. Start investigating military spending and demanding accountability.
2. Form people’s councils/… Read full post »
As I consider how we could make the world a better place (a favorite hobby of mine), I am absolutely positive that what we should do is make education and training free to everyone. I especially want to see a global women's university that would unleash all that brainpower that is… Read full post »

What the world needs is an emergency response fund with a budget for disaster relief in the case of fires, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis, etc. We also need an emergency preparedness fund with a budget to send teams of construction workers to rebuild in places where disasters have hit and rel… Read full post »
I've spoken with highly intelligent, capable young Americans who I've met while living overseas. I've heard them speak of their dreams of getting work in the intelligence community. You get paid foreign travel, an exciting career, and good pay. They've been sold on the glamor of spy… Read full post »
In 2013, with my words and the purity and force of my focused intention, I now activate the love in our hearts to a higher level of conscious awareneness. We have forgotten how much we matter in our thoughts, feelings and actions.
Let us remember how the way that we… Read full post »

While surfing the Internet, I just came across a treasure, a Youtube video about Gobekli Tepe, a temple built 12,000 years ago that has been buried under sand. This is fascinating information.

Although 2012 was a difficult and challenging year for many of us, it lived up to its promise of ushering in a paradigm shift, more so for some than others. We saw mass demonstrations in cities across the world, as people took to the streets in large numbers over a spectrum… Read full post »
