I was just tagged by one of our dear homeschool Moms. I've never played this game before, so here goes. You're supposed to list 26 things about yourself.

1. I'm a hopeless romantic.

2. I love to walk in the woods, in fields of flowers, on the beach...

3. Nature is my true love, it supports me, comforts me, heals me, inspires me, and when I pay close attention guides me too.

4. I love pizza, and homemade cookies.

5. I love to bake, but its not good for my diet.

6. I'm not too good with people. I'm better with animals, they're not so hard to figure out.

7. I have a hard time letting anyone in or letting anyone go.

8. I spend six days a week at the ice rink cause I love my teens.

9. I've learn to work where and when I can even though its always on the run.

10. I'm a visual storyteller because that's how I've learned to cope, communicate and understand myself and life.

11. I'm way too sensitive, so I wear super thick armor to shield my heart.

12. Despite contrary belief, I do love humanity.

13. I learn something from everyone, the world is my teacher.

14. I love to dance in my kitchen and sing to the heavens.

15. One day I want to go back to martial arts.

16. I often play guitar by moon light...well, I try to play, still learning.

17. I love music...all music, it helps heal my soul.

18. Spirit and character are so much more important than looks, but a little eye candy never hurts. ; )

19. My favorite clothes are a pair of old, worn jeans, a soft sweater, an old pair of cowboy boots, an a hooded cloak if it cold out.

20. I think I was born in the wrong time, chivalry is lost and so is true love.

21. I love to read.

22. If it weren't for my children I'd probably never leave my little house in the woods.

23. I love candles, I always have some burning.

24. I've always collected rocks, sea shells, bird feathers, leaves, moss, flowers...did I mention I love nature?

25. I have four birds, a cat, two dogs and an old turtle.

26. My favorite colors are rose and sea green.

Running, running, feel like I'm choking
Its alright, just keep swimming
Someday, perhaps I'll find my way back to clear waters

Hiding Away Again
I've been hiding away again deep in my art
Thinking of you but fear reaches up
My throat's so tight, my tears so hot
I can't stand still, hurting and running blind
How is it we let this happen,
You with your dark moods, me and my stormy ones
How is it we let this happen
Back in the same place we started from
How many times must we dance around before we get the steps down
I look up and you look away, then we switch places I feel love fade
Did we promise something, or was it a dream
How many opportunities do we throw away, how many chances does it take
How is it we let this happen
You with your perfect spirit, me and my broken one
How is it we let this happen
Back in the same place we started from
How many times must we play around before we get it right
Why did you have to go and believe in me
I was doing just fine before I let you in
Sometimes its best to stay in the background unnoticed and unheard
Sometimes its best to walk away no matter how bad your heart aches
How is it we let this happen
You with your golden smile, me with my timid one
How is it we let this happen
Back in the same place we started from
