I like this work, and like that it's not all-consuming. That is to say, I have time for the people in my life and for self-reflection.
Speak-from-the-heart conversation sustains me. So does bringing humor to everyday interactions. Share a laugh? Sign me up.
Sign me up again for a walk in the woods or an event in the city: concert, exhibit, movie, cafe, the park, the urban clamor in moderate doses.
I live debt and mortgage free with enough left in my pockets to travel and save for the future. I lean to the left on political, social, and environmental issues. My house makes its own electricity and heats its own water. The Sierras feel like a second home.
I find time to exercise most days. Swimming, and biking in the East Bay hills are the usuals.
I grew up in the East Bay and have also lived in Tokyo, Santa Cruz, Yosemite, and just outside of Manhattan. I look forward to seeing more of the world. You too?
