friends would describe me as happy, up-beat, kindhearted, generous,
fun, loyal, successful, competent and well-grounded.
I had a rewarding government career and retired early, so am now a

appeal to me and that fit my semi-retired lifestyle.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying semi-retirement especially the added time to spend with
family and friends. I also enjoy museum exhibits, theater, a wide
range of music genres, movies, reading, and traveling.
I love experiencing different cities, cultures, food, art, etc.
both here and abroad. I take frequent short trips with my
girlfriends, siblings, kids (Tahoe, NYC, Chicago, New Orleans,
Russian River, etc.) and I just returned from my second 3-week trip
abroad. Budget allowing, I hope to travel abroad every couple of

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at being a mom, sibling, friend, partner, mentor,
consultant. One of my close friends recently sent me a card
thanking me for teaching her (by way of example) how to be a good
friend. It was a very sweet and generous sentiment and it warmed my

Books- I currently have 3 books on my nightstand, Michael
Paterniti's "The Telling Room", "The Most of Nora Ephrom", and
Julian Barnes' "Levels of Life" and I also subscribe to several
magazines and the SF Chronicle.
Recent Shows: Most recently ACT's "Underneath the Lintel", and
"Black Watch". Recent Exhibits: "Boats on the Water" at the Legion,
"David Hockney", "Richard Diebenkorn" and "Girl w/ the Pearl
Earring" at the De Young and "Terracotta Warriors" at the Asian.
Recent Concerts: Natalie Cole at SF Symphony, and Moodie Blues at
Masonic Auditorium. Would've loved to have seen Sting, Bonnie
Raitt, and Steve Miller last summer but it wasn't in the cards.
Recent Restaurants: 1760, Redford's, Laconda. Always on the lookout
to try new up and coming joints and the good old standbys. I also
like to host informal dinner parties and BBQs with friends. I've
been known to go to pretty extreme lengths to experience unique
food opportunities, but I also love mission district pop-ups and
food trucks once in a while.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
... and am truly thankful for:
1) My very good health and over all fitness;
2) Amazing family and friends, especially my kids (son, daughter,
3) Mandy, my loyal and devoted dog;
4) City of San Francisco, including the SF Giants
5) Great food and restaurants
6) Love, humor and passion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Today and the future. I don't tend to dwell in the past. I can't
wait to see what new experiences each day will bring.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once sent $100 to Michelle Bachmann's opponent.
