The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path

     As mentioned, I have recently acquired a second Examiner post and now I write as the local Fairfax County Vegetarian Examiner as well as the national Buddhism Examiner.  I have decided to begin the Buddhism Examiner articles at the most reasonable beginning: The Buddha's Teachings.  As I present the Teachings, I will then later re-approach them with parables sharing different ways the Teachings may be applied to daily life, thought, oneself, and so forth. 

   The Vegetarian Examiner post is only meant to be localized to this area and so I will likely resign that position when I move in a couple of years, but I do try to provide information that could be helpful to others as well.  I will attach a few links below:

Other articles in that section can be found here.

   I always wanted to be a writer, since I was in second grade and won an award for a story I wrote.  I never thought I'd actually have the chance, though.  Writing is a tough business to crack into and I didn't study writing I studied (and study) Psychology and Japanese.  I am grateful to my husband for providing support and encouragement while I work on building my writing platform and get through this graduate degree program.  When I graduate next Spring, I will devote a large amount of time (currently spent on schoolwork) to writing and hopefully have a first manuscript draft completed by Christmas!
