I am smart, well educated and intellectual. I am very feminine and fashionable, worldly and well traveled. I enjoy books, art, stimulating conversation, movies, the theater and the symphony. I am also earthy and enjoy spending time at home with friends, family and my pets. I like to surround myself with art and beauty. I like to cook, entertain and celebrate. I am as happy with an evening out as I am with one at home. I am sensual, passionate and affectionate. I am also kind, sweet and compassionate, politically aware and sensitive to the needs and suffering of others. Although I certainly have a serious side I am also really fun and funny and love to laugh. Laughter is one of the most wonderful parts of life.
I also love nature and being outside. Walking the C&O canal. Walking all over large cities and in the woods too.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a business and marketing consultant. I love what I do and I enjoy my clients, some who have developed into good friends.
I also am an organizer in the Peace and Social Justice Movement. I have worked on some major issues and that part of my life is also very important to me.
I’m really good at
I am very creative in many ways; when I am cooking, entertaining, arranging flowers, decorating etc., but also when organizing events and very much so when I am developing marketing plans. I am also good at making travel plans and networking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very friendly and open, warm, kind, engaging.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books way too many to even contemplate, movies: Melancholia,
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Desperately Seeking Susan,
Life as a House, Grosse Point Blank, Gone with the Wind,
Dr. Zhivago, Dances with Wolves, To Kill a Mockingbird, Body of War. I saw "Begin Again" last year in the theater and have rewatched it on cable several times. I love that movie, the story and the soundtrack are both fabulous.
Television; Masters of Sex, The Affair, Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory and movies, lots and lots of movies.
The six things I could never do without
I prefer, for the most part, to label these things; I am very thankful for or things I love to indulge in. I think in the end there is much we can live without; very sadly the majority of the population of this planet live with barely anything and somehow they persevere :(
Art, Art, Art I love visual and performance art. I also have a large and varied art collection of my own. Art also includes movies, especially love Indie films.
My friends; I have the most wonderful, interesting, supportive, amazing friends a person could hope for.
My pets; even the ones who have left the earth plane, who are still in my heart.
My passport. I travel frequently and have been to many parts of the world.
My books, who are also my friends. I have way too many and I really need to find a way to downsize them but it is not easy. How I wish I could warm up to the kindle :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Peace in the world and why most Americans remain asleep while our freedoms are being destroyed and we are bombing the hell out of the planet. The sad state of the environment and the fact that there is most likely no way to undue the damage.
My next dinner party, what great new restaurant I want to try, what's coming to the theater.
How to take my clients to the next level of success
My next trip, I travel frequently and hope you do or want to also.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a "typical" Friday night
