Christine enjoys gardening. She likes to take long walks and is happiest when she is out with nature. She is an animal lover.
“To me,” Christine says, “animals are the only truly innocent creatures in the world. With people, you can always question their motivations. You can always wonder what they’re really thinking. People can lie. They can be false, they can be difficult. They can be a lot of things. Animals can only be one way. When you interact with an animal, it can only be one thing. It shows you its nature and it behaves in the only way it knows how. I can’t imagine a dog or a cat or any other sort of animal that could look at you and hide what it’s really thinking. When an animal is hungry, it lets you know. When it’s happy, it lets you know. When it is loving, it gets close to you. That’s just the nature of animals. They’re like innocent children, incapable of being false with you. A child eventually learns to lie and learns how it can gain by saying what isn’t true. An animal never does that. That’s why I like to volunteer with animal shelters. You’ve got to be careful when you volunteer, because shelters are run by people, and some of them are motivated by something other than what’s best for the animals. I’ve had good experiences volunteering for shelters and I’ve had bad experiences. You’ve got to be careful and you’ve got to be prepared to walk away if it’s the sort of place that is run like a puppy mill.”
Christine also enjoys going to zoos to see more exotic animals. “I just love them,” she explains. “I like seeing them at the zoo, but I like seeing them out in nature that much more. There are some animals that you’re never going to see in nature, though. Or at least, if you see a tiger out in the wild, that’s probably the last thing you’re going to see. So I go to the zoo for things like that. But when it comes to my nature walks, I like to see how many different species of bird I can spot and identify. And then, when I sit down somewhere, I like to be really still. If you’re still for long enough, if you don’t move and you don’t make any noise, you can get squirrels to come really close to you. It’s like they forget that you’re there. It’s like something out of a Disney movie. But if you feed them and you’re patient, you can get them to come really close to you. I know a girl who went so far as to tame a squirrel for a pet. She lets it run loose in her house. It does a lot of damage and chews on things, but she likes it. And I have to admit it’s pretty cute.”
Christine believes she is very well suited to her job because of her love of adventure and her flexibility when it comes to her schedule. “If a client wants to party until dawn, I’m up for it,” she explains. “If I need to spend the week clubbing, I’m up for that too. And if a client wants a more athletic date, I’m ready for that too. I love the fact that when I start my week, I really don’t have any idea what I’m going to do be doing. It could be a museum, a business meeting, a night in a hotel, anything. Knowing that it’s wide open is a dream.”
Gardening is how Christine connects herself to the Earth and centers herself. “When I get in touch with the Earth,” she says, “when I get my hands in the soil, when I help something to grow, that’s when I am my most human. People today live so separated from the Earth we come from. They live in towers of glass and steel. Concrete and asphalt have been paved over everything. We’ve gotten to the point where if you see so much as an ant in your kitchen you freak out. How sanitized a life do you have to leave to never see so much as a stray insect? When did we come to take for granted the fact that we could completely control our climate and purge everything in our lives that doesn’t exactly match the way we want to live? People used to be a lot more in touch with what was out there in the world. They used to live a lot more naturally. That’s why I like to get back to nature when I can. Nature is soothing. The Earth has this vibe that just lets you get in tune with your inner self.”
That tuning is very important to Christine, who explains, “I have to center myself periodically or I go crazy. We all have the need to get right with ourselves, to center our minds. It’s very important. I think that’s the reason that I need to get away, to shelve all the technology, turn off my phone, and just be myself. If more of us took the time to get those little breaks from the rat race, from the terrible pace of modern life, we would really all be better off. I think I am doing a good thing if I can encourage at least one person to think that way, at least once in their lives.”
