Profile Information

Your Religious Status
About Me:
Former law enforcement park ranger. Raised an absolutely remarkable son who has completely surpassed me in living a holistic, compassionate, and realistic life (so proud!). I have led an adventurous life, wow! And now I blog about it at It is my therapy, because my PTSD had reduced my life to a pretty humbling and boring existence. What is most important to me right now? Finding expression in my writing; my relationships with my son, daughter-in-law, nieces and nephews; my therapy; and creating a path back to a rural area (more nature).
Relationship Status
Why are you here?
Recently accepted that I'm an atheist. I lost my religion several years ago, and until now just sort of put the whole thing on the back burner. Coming to terms with my lack of faith, I am desperate to find other like-minded folks, and learn how they cope with life's struggles.
Why you left your religion.
Considered myself "spiritual but not religious." The aftermath of surviving traumatic events on-the-job included a complete loss of belief that there is anything benevolent out there. It isn't that I'm angry or bitter or blaming, I just feel I've experienced proof that there is no God, Universe, etc.
