I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would
say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are
helping.' To this day, especially in times of 'disaster,' I remember my
mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are
still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world."
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
