FC: Charlene "Bear" | My Awesome Life... | 2011
1: Camping, kayaking, hiking, fishing, and generally being outdoors is the essence of who I am and what I'm about. The wilderness and its waters feed my soul and rejuvenate me in ways that I cannot explain in an earthly means. My spirit is constantly fortified by nature and its many offerings...for this I cannot complain about the little things in life. I live for every day.
2: Although I have (3) types of arthritis: RA, AS, & OA, I still remain an adventurer at heart and I try to remain as active as I can. I tried Zip-Lining for the first time last year and can't wait to do it again. I love photography, painting, and of course, kayaking!
3: My Dog Scout | I talk to her when I'm lonesome like and I'm sure she understands. When she looks at me so attentively and so gently licks my hands; then she rubs her nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows, I can buy more clothes but never a friend like that. -W. Dayton Wedgefarth | Scout is my 5 y/o chocolate lab/chesapeake bay retriever mix. I love her incredibly and we keep each other centered.
4: Expressive Arts | I am by no means a "professional artist," however, I thoroughly enjoy painting, craft work and the expressive arts. I enjoy the expression of emotion/feelings and the positive results that have come from engaging in a variety of arts. It's part of who I am.
