I'm Hope. I'm a walking contradiction. Mainly I'm happy these days. I've been married to the most wonderful man on the planet for almost eight years (anniversary June 28!!) and it's so fabulous. Allen is the most wonderful amazing fantastic person I've ever had the joy of being around and I'm so lucky he found me. I have two cats (Flora the white and Bullitt the gray). Our Sunney girl passed away on 4/24/10. I love music, reading, writing and travelling, as well as messin on the Net! Ice cream is my addiction! :) I'm normally a "the glass is half full" kinda girl, unless I'm hit with something really hard, but I usually snap back into my normal cheerful outlook. I decided to stop eating meat about three years ago. It's a big step, but I feel better abount myself now. I'm on a spiritual journey right now. I am a Virago...
virago: a woman of great stature, strength and courage, who is not feminine in the conventional ways.
My view on relationships.... to me, relationships are similar to gardens. You have to work on them to make them good. You can have the best location, soil, weather and plants; but if you don't water, fertilize and weed the garden, it won't be as fruitful (or vegetableful?) as it could be.
