I feel it is necessary to be around others who understand the significance of how we related to animals. I work with people who don't appreciate the importance of animal protection and sometimes I get weary of being the only one who is an abolitionist living in an era of slavery. it would be nice to find like-minded people close by.
I currently work in government as a lawyer, but probably have more of a writer's sensibility. I feel best leading a balanced life which for me means spending time around diverse people, having a enough amount of time for exercise, relaxation and hanging out with animals. I don't like the weather here because it is too hot in summer and too cold in winter and I miss being closer to the ociean. on the positive, here, at least, I can bicycle to work and I like the unpretentious wine makers in Amador County.
I am also interested in politics and the issues of the day, film and good television, some music and some fine art. I also like to read, both fiction and non-fiction, and always want to travel, but also need to find animal people wherever I go, particularly in difficult places. I am always trying to learn French.
yes, see above
Long-time animal protectionist who had to move to Sacto for work and I miss my southern Cal veg community but always enjoy meeting animal-friendly people everywhere. I am involved with international animal issues and some politics in the U.S.
