My other blog

I have an allrecipes.com blog that I use exclusively to talk about traditional recipes I have veganized and how they turned out.  However, THIS blog is the one I post in all the time.  I did have a blog at livejournal, here but I do not use that anymore.  I realize most of what I post is about vegan cooking and living.  But there are other things that go on.

For example, I was a professional clarinetist with the U.S. Navy fleet bands for fourteen years before I was forced to retire because of illness.  Music is my lifeblood in many ways.  I am just now, after several years, getting back into playing and teaching.  Hopefully, I can eventually do music full time again. I like my job with the gov't, but I miss playing music SO MUCH.  It is gratifying that three of my four children love to play instruments (Chris plays guitar, and Brian and Amy play clarinet).

I will say this, referring to being vegan:  Since I have begun eating and living vegan, my depression has lifted a VERY great deal.  I want to be alive again, and I feel like I am finally on the road to getting my life back.
