About Me
No I am not Hawaiian, however I would like to be, to be blessed with the spirit of aloha. I appreciate history, tradition, and respect various cultures. I enjoy many types of music. I like classical music from various cultures, am aware of its therapeutic value for promoting neurogenic factor in building on brain circuitry. I try to sort out the sounds of individual instruments and nuanced layered themes. Or I just breathe in relaxed music. I like good old Rock and Roll and music where I can understand the lyrics. Folk. Blues. Jazz. The song "All Mixed Up" composed by Pete Seeger and wonderfully sung by Peter, Paul, and Mary has a lot to say about humanity.(It is found on YouTube, I really like PP&M's version compared to Seeger's).

My style of travel is not the pampered route. I like to plan my own itinerary with flexibility. I have not traveled to many countries, but did spend 5 weeks in Nepal many years ago, and that was like stepping back a few centuries in time and culture. Have traveled to England and Scotland, with family members.

Politically, clearly I am for single-payer universal health care in the United States. I do not have a solution for the millions of people in the USA who have no means or any health insurance coverage and use an ER as their primary physician, especially when there is no emergency. We taxpayers provide to Congress and the President the most superior health care available (part of their self-appointed perks package). It is justified that taxpayer monies be spent to provide high quality healthcare for those who need it. Thinking of all the expenditures that the government budgets, it is appalling that we don't have better educational opportunities (ie stronger results compared to other nations), health care for all, progressive energy policies, and caring for the "Greatest Generation" which unfortunately is dying out. A very good book to read is a short one written in 1935 post-WWI by Smedley D. Butler, US Marine Corps Major General who was the first or only recepient of two Congressional Medals of Honor. The book "War is a Racket" which at the time was not a best seller so to speak. However it is still available through for about $10. Thanks to the Butler family and Feral Press of Port Townsend, WA for its publishing (2009?). Includes some thought provoking photographs of the period, well worth reading more than once.

I belong or have subscribed to numerous organizations. Examples include World Wildlife Fund, Defenders of Wildlife, Sierra Club, Disabled American Veterans, Audubon Society local chapter, Cowlitz County Search and Rescue, Evergreen Search Dogs (no longer an active organization, plus my precious Walker Hound died in 2010; he was extremely geriatric at 16.5 years!). Americans United for Separation of Church and State-Columbia Chapter in Portland, Southern Poverty Law Center (founded by Morris Dees), Peace Corps Volunteer--taught biology to Malaysian high school students, extended by one year, my total Peace Corps service is a little over 3 years. That period of my life, right after college while young and very fit, seems to have had an indelible effect on my psyche and values. I traveled x3 months afterwards.solo. I do not recommend travelling alone, particularly as a woman. It is a hassle and can be dangerous obviously. If you have read this far, you have patience and I'd like to meet you.

I am still working on adding photos.. If you write me, I will write you back. I probably will be revising this description; it is too lengthy. Cheers, Nancy
