Husband, Animals, and Plants
Carole lives in the mountains with the tall beautiful trees and her husband, James, and two cats, TJ and Sasha, and their dog, Natasha. She loves to create, whether cooking, writing, drawing, speaking, picking flowers, decorating or sharing her creations. She loves to watch seeds grow and help struggling plants turn around and thrive. Her wonderful husband eats all of her food creations - no matter how they come out. What a sweetheart!
“We each are unique individuals, whether humans, animals, or plants. We are wonderful and glorious in our diversity and individuality, but we are also dependent upon each other and interconnected. We cannot survive alone. We need each other and need to help each other to survive - as an individual, as a species, as a city, as a habitat, as a state, as an ecosystem, as a country, and as a planet. No matter what culture we come from, no matter what species we are (plant, animal, or human), we all need to work together to create a peaceful planet where we can all be friends and help each other fulfill our dreams and destinies as individuals and as a planet.”
