Volunteer Aspirations From Afar

(United States)

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ― C. JoyBell C.

I am in the midst of throwing myself, wildly, all about the depths and vast spaces of my heart and soul. Just two years ago, one couldn't have told me that I would have abandoned my post in the "corporate world", shed away all of my possessions, only to be absolutely lost in my world turned upside down.

It would be my pleasure to volunteer at the Sanctuary beginning in January of 2014 if I'd be considered a positive addition to the community.

Much love and light to you all.
