Hi, I'm Niki I worked for most of my life as a legal and/or executive secretary is high-stress jobs. Currently, I am a freelance writer. I'm also founder and volunteer liaison/trainer of Volunteer Biographers and a scribe for Awakin.org and ServiceSpace.org. I feel like, at last, I am part of something truly beautiful and world-changing. KindSpring, Awakin and ServiceSpace were founded by Nipun Mehta on the idea of "Giftivism." This is what my heart-songs are all about (under1000skies, Volunteer Biographers, My Sister's Keeper, etc.) For more information about giftivism, see Nipun's TedX Talk: "Designing for Generosity.") I'm a mom and new grandmom, happily married to my best friend. I'm a musician, artist, writer, and world citizen. I believe that life is in two parts -- finding your passion, then giving it back to the world. The operative word here is "give." "I am planting seeds, nothing more." I sign my name "♥." meaning "love, period." Love is the most powerful force in the universe. I have learned how to choose love over fear in order to survive especially the last 3.5 years since my son disappeared.
