The sounds of roller blades were actually the hospital gurney speeding down the hall. Anticipation of a long laborious night was disrupted, as I was born within 5 minutes of entering the delivery room.
Hello, Holistic Ebony supporters! My name is Christine L. Taylor. I grew up with 2 brothers, and was a high school track and field county champ. I continued to run track in college, but missed going to the Olympic trials by 3 tenths of a second. I enjoy learning new languages and how to live eco-friendly. I earned my Bachelors degree in Communications and Culture from The City University of New York.
Fitness has, and will always be a part of my life. Nowadays, I bike, hike, walk, do yoga and swim. Oh, by the way, I also do a little gardening. New York was and still is home, however, my family did a lot of traveling throughout the South. I remember riding along a narrow 2 lane road through the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Scents of fresh sweet balsam pine, and soothing cedar trees will never fade. Spending summers in the country and on the family farm embedded within me an appreciation for nature.
Additionally, I am a buddhist and member of a lay organization that promotes peace, culture and education, (Soka Gakkai International-USA). I am excited about being a staff writer for Holistic Ebony. I believe that you should never stop learning. Learning to live holistically can be enjoyable, easy and in fact such a delight that healthy adjustments are not only achievable, but also sustainable. I hope to help you reach your holistic goals. I look forward to hearing from you.
