everyday philosophy :: writing :: life :: shared by Amanda
Hi, I'm Amanda. I'm a writer and a scientist, but I don't always write about science. I write poetry, nonfiction, flash fiction, and I read as much as possible. 

I had cancer at 32, and now I study why animals die. Makes sense, right? I'm always seeking balance in my world, and it's not always easy ... but life's a work in progress, for sure. 

You can find me on my website and on my sustainability blog Easy Peasy Organic. Head on over, bring tea :) I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I'm a local travel expert at Afar, and I sell my photography at Society 6.

See you soon!
