I am a creative, open-minded and kind person, who feels a kinship with those that question the meaning of life and how best to live their life.
I'm emotionally mature and grounded, yet also playful with a penchant for adventure.
As a humble person (too humble I'm told), it's challenging to summarize myself here.
I am an urban type who also loves to be in nature.
Hiking and overnighting on the Appalachian trail and going to a cultural event are of equal interest and importance to me.
The company that joins me on such outings is the most important aspect. To that end, I am here looking for a kindred spiirt to share in life's wonders.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching art (in as much as one can "teach" Art), raising my beautiful son, spending time as a family with my son, my man, and extended family too. I so much enjoyi time with friends, both friends with kids and those without. I am trying to find more time for my studio art, and beginning a new venture as an illustrator. However, the reality is that I spend too much time at the sink doing dishes.
I’m really good at
Making oatmeal, pancakes and capuccino in the morning.
Making drawings from life and my imagination.
Keeping secrets - this is important and unique about me. I
found over the years that most people, not matter how well
intentioned and kind, cannot contain that which should be

The six things I could never do without
I am thinking about this question seriously. The reality is that
some of us could without the things that we consider essential in
our lives. So, I am not going to put down chocolate, good red wine,
or my new Nook. Here is my attempt a deeper answer.
-a clear conscience
-moments of quiet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Our faltering democracy and red/blue divide.
How I am going to carve out time for creative pursuits
On a typical Friday night I am
I am not one for having a set routine (although have a young child
has foisted some of that upon me) so Friday nights are not typical.
I might be driving out of town with my family, home cooking a nice
meal, or having dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm...if I write it here it is not too private.
You should message me if
You are sincere, intelligent, cultured, and kind.
