“Writing is the painting of the voice.”- Voltaire
On this website you will find my main, diverse blog. I blog as an avenue of expression because I am as curious as hell, love learning, and because the desire to write never leaves me. Take a peek, and you will find mostly articles on the human experience, and some on other topics. As an avid reader of many subjects, I also write a monthly book review of both fiction and nonfiction books I find inspiring, educational, or life-changing. Check it out!
I live vegan for ethical reasons. My vegan blog VEGoutwithVilms exists to encourage and teach others how to eat healthy, nourishing vegan cuisine, and how to live a vegan lifestyle. I share my recipes – some are from childhood that I have recreated into vegan deliciousness. My e-book, Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms: 35 Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Recipes for Ultimate Health and Vitality, demonstrates how to make changes in your life to improve your health.
If Anyone Wants to Know…
Most people have no idea that I’m an INTJ. I view the myriad of life’s experiences as learning opportunities, and I question everything deeply. I spend time writing at coffee shops, love hiking, exercising, exploring, listening to music, and admiring art. Not having the opportunity daily to use my creativity or intellect induces misery for me. I can’t imagine my life without gardening, woodworking, or crafting. As a lover of nature, I feel most at peace when near the ocean or the mountains and am lucky that I have had many opportunities to visit both. Well traveled, I’ve discovered that all people desire two things: to love and to find their creative expression to share with the world. And lastly, I adore my cozy home in Colorado where I live with a remarkable partner, an extremely creative teenager, and several comical, loving animals.
Take a look around and thanks again for visiting! I welcome your comments.
