Hi; I'm new to this forum and all I can say is that I'm more than glad I found it. I'm 30 years old, originally from the state of NY. I've lived in two foreign countries; China and Vietnam. I am to begin grad school in the fall. I've been vegetarian for the past 14 years and I am a lover of nature and everything natural. I also love to practice Zen mediatation, albeit I still need loads of practice.
