"...everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."  ~Sylvia Plath

I read and I write, in that order. In between I do some thinking, mainly about how to live a meaningful life. My blog is a record of that thinking; my personal subjective - private thinking that takes place between my reading and the writing, and takes form in writing. I am on a journey - learning to live as natural a life as possible. So much of our food now is treated with chemicals and genetically modified, the same with all the creams and potions we put on the outside of our bodies. I believe that many of the illnesses prevalent today - mental and physical - can be prevented or treated with diet and by changing the way we think. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Hippocrates said. Our connection to nature is important too and I like to be outdoors as often as I can. I originally trained as a nurse, gaining my degree in 2000. Now I prefer a more holistic and natural approach to life and health. Jane Redfern Jones.
