I think you are incredibly interesting and most definately special! ok, I just read the post above this....after I typed the first sentence...freaky.
You never cease to amaze me with your interests, experiences, views and conviction. I love it! Thanks for sharing.

ps... I had a deja-vu moment tonight while teaching my sister to turn a heel! Thank you for that!

I also know that you like to scrape paint off old doors.
...I'm still waiting to be offended.

Still waiting to be offended. I love that you are willing to be so many "contradictions" out there. I would be more offended by those that are offended by your honesty and integrity. If you forced your opinions and views, then that might be something else but you don't. You are a wonderful, beautiful person I count as a friend. (and I'm Mormon so we can go offending all kinds of folks together!!!hehe)

Can you really be a Zionist if you don't live in Israel? (hey, gotta give you a reason to be offended too, don't I? :P

A Jew who believes Jesus was the Messiah? Fabulous!!!

I'm a Christian Buddhist who is is investigating Kabballah [and I'm sure I spelled that way wrong] and learning to read tarot ;)

I offend freely. Welcome to the club !!

The funny thing is I think most people are filled with contradictions, but we hide them from others, for fear of not "fitting in" (whatever that really is!). It's when we can be transparent and open about our inner contradictions that we can connect with others. That's what Jesus did, isn't it?
Thanks Heather for fearlessly being transparent! You're awesome!
