Good morning! It's a beautiful fall day here in the North Carlina mountains. My name is Sharyn. I'm Cherokee, Catawba, and Blackfoot. I am 38 years old(Young
)and the mother of 3 teenagers. Deborah(Running Fawn)is 18 and attends the community college here where she is majoring in Graphic Design and Music. She plans to go to NC state in a year or two. She is a black belt in karate and currently takes Ti Quando(SPELLING?). Matt(Standing Bear)is 17, 6 fet tall, and 250 pounds(!!!)I feel like a runt next to him with my 5'3, 112 inch frame. He is also a black belt, and almost has his eagle in scouts. John(Little Fox)is 15 and just started drvier's ed. He plans to join the Army in 2 or 3 years and get his college that way. Good thing too...might as well get something out of the government, right? I have home schooled them since they were in 1st grade. I still home school Matt and John. We live on 32 acres of land which the Creator loaned to us for a time. We try to live as simply as possible. I am a freelance writer and journalist. I love to read, cook and bake, live the Naturl Way of my ancstors, do native arts and crafts,get out in nature, and protect and heal Mother Earth. I did a ceremony sometime back, while I was very sick, that the spirits, and the Creator would heal me, but with that, I would honor the taking away of something bad with something good, so i dedicated my life to protecting the Eearth Mother and healing her. It starts at home too. You can't really get out there and save the rest of the planet until you clean up your own litle corner of it. So we did. I'm also studying to be a healer and shaman.Well, that's not all but I'll stop for now. Hope to make many new, wonderful friends and relations here...we are all one...we are all related. Aho.
