PHILOSOPHY I believe that it's time for a new American dream. I think that living your life in the pursuit of stuff is destructive. I consider myself an optimist and I think that the best way to explain my philosophy would be to demonstrate my vision. The life I intend to lead is in sync with nature, learning how best to survive in and tend to our world. I look forward to a life ...(copy thing from DR questionairre about the seasons)... Another important aspect to my vision of the new American dream is an environment where children can grow up without oppression. Children should be able to grow up in an environment where body and mind or man and nature are not black and white, but are one. We need to move past the disection that we have endured in this society.

CURRENT SITUATION I am currently working a job that I am unsatisfied with. I'm ready to work for something greater than myself. I am very excited about leading a life that is infused with the things that I find most important in life - community, balance, having pride and love for one's work, and being a part of a lifestyle that has a future. As for right now, I find joy in my research into nutrition and experimentation with different cooking techniques.
