I was born and raised in a small town called Oella- located in the State of Maryland. As a child my family and I lived on an acre and a half of land in a house located in the woods- undisturbed by the outside world. I loved being surrounded by woods and freedom!<br /> I am the fifth child of eleven siblings. As a child and well into my adult years, I was an introvert. I had no voice. I walked through life as a silent watcher; as if viewing the outside world from a window- not allowing anyone to know that I was there. <br /> Nature was my place of refuge. I loved being in the woods amid nature and the animals; there I felt connected to my spiritual self and the Divine. I also felt safe. In the woods was a place where I could go and analyze the world, my curiosity for life, and the nature of people.<br /> Being an introvert and a watcher of my world didn't stop me from having my share of encounters with life and people. My life experiences have provided me with the knowledge and understanding of what I've come to know!<br /> My relationships and life experiences have taught me to be thankful for the nature of who I've always been- an observer and a watcher of my innerself .<br /> A part of self actualization is expressing the inner me- emptying myself of what has filled me- in fact its been healing!<br /> As a result of what I've come to know I've been blessed to capture the essences of my life jouney and write it down. I have written a book that expresses that journey. It is called:&nbsp;What Type of Character Are You Hanging Out With? <br /> <br /> I am a very optimistic person regarding life and living! And I enjoy this journey called life!!!<br />
