About Me

I go by Gigi.  I’m camera shy, but I promise I’m a real live human.  I’ve been a vegetarian since I was six, can barely breathe without California oak trees, and I find my purest bliss by jumping off rocks into lakes.

When I’m not blogging, I’m a creative writer, artist, actress, and educator.  I was given the gift of deep nature connection throughout my earliest years, and I got involved with environmental activism when I was a teenager.  I’m in my late twenties now.  Back then, I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders.  (I still do, sometimes).   I went through quite a journey to fully realize that in order to heal the earth, I needed to start by healing myself.  Now, I want to share that approach with you, along with other lovely things, like crafts and recipes. 

I strongly believe that real change happens best through mindful motivation rather than through guilt or pressure. 

I put sustainability second to sanity, but first after that.

Peace and veggies,

Gigi
