UPDATE end of Sept 2010: Will be "rejoining" the Human Race now very soon... very, very soon. {Beaming!!} A MAJOR departure from my June '10 Update ~~ EVERYTHING'S CHANGING!!! And all for the BETTER--whoo hoo!!! :) :) :) :) (Just got to get over being sick right now.)

UPDATE July '10: Things "may be" lightening up. We'll see.

UPDATE June '10: Sad to say, NOTHING'S CHANGED since my October '09 update. So, so sad!! I'm just Depressed!!!!!! About what's happening to me. :(

UPDATE October '09: Need to update. Have been going through HELL for the longest, longest, LONGEST time. For almost 2 entire years now. Have been living in hideous survival financial ruin mode for just about 2 yrs now. It has RUINED my ability to function normally. I have simply NOT been my positive, upbeat, loving self whom I love SO MUCH all this time. I have become a stranger to myself, to my friends, to anyone I ever knew here & really cared about. I don't care about myself anymore, I don't care about life, I have no dreams, no goals, no purpose, no function. The threat of homelessness or worse is always on my doorstep, daily. I never know what's going to happen from day to day, in a painful financial way, so I live with a constant heavy heart & dread. This is not good. I've gained weight behind it, of course. Ugly bumps & lumps I cannot stand. But worse is the dread, the daily, daily dread of not knowing HOW I'm ever going to make it again & be able to afford to live.

mid-January '09: Things are beginning to look brighter. :)

January '09: Very depressed over finances; am no longer exercising, am gaining weight again....

November '08: Still trying to find my way...

September 24: I need to do something positive with my life, that's all. I just need to do something positive.

late December '07 to August '08: Spark Page Under Construction While I Attempt To Re-Invent Myself & My Life. (Been going through some really, really tough times. Difficult at best, gut-wrenchingly horrid at worst, but always with an Amazing Amount of MIRACLES showing up at the deepest, darkest moments. Proving to me over & over that The Universe really IS here with me, no matter how many times I get scared thinking it's not true.)

September '08: "Some" things are better, and some things are not. Coming up again--time for some **major life changes**, but this time I have NO CLUE what they are.


"Original" Spark Page:

I'm a Raw Foodist (meaning I only eat fresh fruit, "every greens & veggie under the sun" salads , nuts, seeds, seaweeds & fermented foods; i.e. sauerkraut, "non-garlicky" kimchee, homemade fermented seed & nut "cheeses"--all totally raw.)

Exercise all the way--Yeah Baby!! Intense "pushing it" lap swimming, treadmill or track running. (45 min each & building)

Recent Film School grad--BA; recent Creative Writing grad--MFA. (In my late 40's, early/mid 50's.) Writing a multi-volume memoir, multiple screenplays. 58 yrs "young." (59 now.) Don't look it, act it, feel it. Never been married, no kids. Haven't "grown up" yet--probably never will.

    Thank you SO MUCH for the goodie. It was such a nice surprise to get when I logged on.

    How are YOU??? Last I heard finances were a horrible struggle for you and, I would imagine, the stress level was rather high. Is your job situation improving any?

    How is your nutrition? Staying raw or mostly raw? To me, it seems easier to do in the summer so I've been really good except for the times I chose to eat other stuff.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog. You gave me some ideas. I wish there was someone out there writing a book or who had written one that has your idea of keeping it simple and some easy/simple ideas for food. I'm going to play with the dehydrator and see how it goes.
