A hippie-gypsy at heart-I have traveled to many places world wide, being a missionary minister, and met the most amazing and beautiful people.
My faith is basically Christian based, although I don't believe in titles. I accept all people, all faiths, all situations. I am here to enjoy what I have been blessed with and love my Creator who made it all; Bring love, peace, and compassion to my surroundings and the people that I meet; and leave the rest to God😁

My current permanent residence is in Upstate New York, nestled in the Catskill Mountains. it is a beautiful farm-filled area, with many beautiful fields and mountains and lakes. I have lived in other cities such as Las Vegas (when I went to college at UNLV), and in Wappingers Falls/Poughkeepsie/ New Paltz area of New York ,for 13 years (when I had worked for IBM.) I also lived in Australia recently for four and a half months, and discovered the amazing beauty of that country from Brisbane to Port Augusta to Coober Pedy and Alice Springs.. over 8000 Miles of beautiful lush grasslands, and the stunning deep red soils of their deserts and Outback.
