I am a mother of two strong and intelligent little boys who keep me on my toes. I love to learn anything and everything. I feel life is about learning, and enjoying yourself as you do so.
I strongly believe in the barter system. I have worked for various people who used it to make a living, and was amazed at what services could be exchanged. For instance, I once worked at a sandwich shop where the owner exchanged his amazing sandwich making skills to get the floor of his restaurant replaced. That's right, he exchanged $20,000 worth of labor and materials for the equivalent amount of cost in sandwiches. Those men (there were 2 of them) and their families ate well for several weeks.
I've traveled the world and seen how people barter in 3rd world circumstances. These experiences helped me understand the true value of money, and I honestly think we'd be better off without the filthy stuff. But unfortunately for me, the majority of the world disagrees.
I am religious, but I don't let that get in the way of meeting new people and hearing the wisdom and knowledge they have to share. We all have some unique knowledge that if we could all get together in the same room and listened respectfully and with an open mind, we might find some amazing truths about the nature of the spirit and the world.
