I will be away for the next 10 days camping in the mountains! In a tent with not internet or phone service! The only thing to do is fish, hike and relax! I will follow up with you upon my return!

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
