Tamara spent her youth running wild in pastures, playing in barns and living in her imagination. And then she grew up (well, sort of). Since then, she’s spent countless confusing years in the suburbs, disguised as an adult, with one husband, one child and too many pets. She’s been a teacher, an artist, a writer and a librarian. Secretly, she searches for simple understanding and answers to life’s complex lessons, while finding that the best teachers are often found at farmers markets, art museums, music stores, and state parks. In sharing, she hopes that you can use these truths, too, and add to them as part of the whole.
Oh, and what’s a satsang? Satsang (Sanskrit sat = true, sanga = company) is the company of the highest truth.

Glad to see you writing– and doing a darned good job of it. I DO follow “paper” advice and have a monthly recycle guy come by for everything. However, that stuff breeds, not just paper either.
The closer I get to the end, the more I remind my dwindled family that no matter what they find left behind — there was a REASON I had it. Eight pairs of scissors? Wait! I can explain.
Mary Kay just sent me “UP” and “StarWars”. She knows just what to do — the old 85th b-day. You’ve had one recently too? So has M.K. Ah, the Aquarius and Pisces days,
Tell ’em all hello. Love you, Jan
Thanks for stopping by, Jan. Yes, I’m having some fun with this blog stuff. As for the writing style, you are one of my greatest influences here (I still miss our Sunday afternoon writing group)!
I’ll pass the hello’s along. Love you, too.
Tamara: You obviously started this last year and I had no idea. Will look thru posts later. I am going to bed. Last night I was awaken by the proverbial call in the middle of the night. Guess who it was? It was Norton antivirus outsourcing to India. I have been trying to get them to take me off from automatic updates (charging my credit card)… I have a Mac now and can’t use it. Well, I was forced to get a new PC laptop and I thought I would use my already paid for Norton product. Apparently, I wrote 1 a.m. instead of 1 pm for a call back.
I am expecting an another call tonight because I told the guy last night I couldn’t talk (he kept asking me for my PC specs) .. told him to call back today but no one called me at 1 p.m. again.
LoL, Cathy! Get some sleep, and thanks for checking out the site. I’ll still be here when you come back. Hope that everything works out with Norton, and India.
Just found this blog and am a new subscriber! I am also stuck in the ‘burbs and I know my heart belongs elsewhere. I’m also a teacher, writer, and avid bookworm (I worked in a library for four years!).. so I feel I have a lot to learn from you. 🙂
