I remember being so physically and mentally active in my early years. But running my boutique store in Ashland Oregon for 12 years during the mid 90s for 12 years resulted in my burnout.
Vegetarianism was the very first article that I submitted to Elephant Journal. A day after my submission, I got an enthusiastic letter of response. I was accepted to be an official indi journalist for them. I was thrilled! There were two other writer friends of mine who, in the past, had applied to them, but unfortunately didn’t get in. They heard that I got approved, so for the second time, they pitched in their article, but unfortunately, they were denied again.
