Please describe yourself so that other like minded devotees can find you.
Happy, easy going, loving & caring down to earth devotee, who loves cats, art, music & laughter. Who misses association with devotees, who for me are family. I live alone, with my vegetation cat, Tom who sadly is ill with renal failure ( any prayers offered for him I would be grateful for) I have a daughter, Layla who I adore & stays with me as often as she can. Still engaged in krishna consciousness and devotional service, I have my own deities whom I perform puja aarti for.
What are your expectations from this community?
To get back in contact with my devotee friends from the past who I knew when I was serving at Edinburgh, the manor, Paris, Bury place (now Soho temple) London. & Newcastle temple. Also to meet like minded devotees. To get updates about news and events and any devotional service I can help with.
Describe any specific service you would love to offer to Lord Krishna & His devotees?
Anything that would be of any help to Krishna Consciousness. With in my capabilities (this is due to health issues).
