I have a gold necklace my sister gave me and several rings (wedding, engagement, moonstone and labradorite) that I never take off.

Taking my puppy and my 3 year old to the lush forested creek here in Ojai, or the hot springs with my husband under the stars.

Favorite quote or affirmation or words you live by?
"All art is never finished, it just stops in interesting places."
"I invoke the manifestation of my highest destiny."
"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create -- so that
without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.” – Pearl S. Buck
Advice to your younger self?
