Catching up and getting started

I began my journal on my forum, Gaudiya Repercussions. It is a forum intended to attract other former Hare Krishna devotees like myself, who left ISKCON behind.

Given that some still feel a bit secretive about their identity and what they reveal, I made their personal profiles private, members only. But that made the blogs members-only as well. And some prefer it that way.

I gave it some thought and decided that I wanted to have a more public journal. So I've transferred anything I felt comfortable sharing to this newly minted, as of this evening, Live Journal.

Right now I am tired from entering all of these (back to March) and want to take a break, so I'll write something in the next day or so and update the bio. I transferred that as well.

If you happen to be a former Hare Krishna, you can find us at http://www.gaudiya-repercussions.com

My old feminist 'zine is at http://www.uppitywomen.net and it is called Uppity Women Magazine. I stopped publication in August of 2001 when heart disease, the family curse, caught up with me. I was just broadsided by its early onset and the quadruple bypass surgery at the age of 42.

Do you know your cholesterol level? Your C-reactive protein level? Your risk factors? Talk to your doctor, start prevention young!

Blessed be--
