My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Life is very, very good right now. Of course, it can be better...and that's why I'm here.

I thrive on the Arts and creative expression. That’s my core. I’m extremely fortunate to have a daughter who shares that with me.

I made an independent film years ago, but most of my artistic expression today is through writing. A day at the art gallery, an afternoon at the theater or an evening spent with a good movie is bliss. Reading is also a great passion. (GoodReads and I have become very close companions.)

Festivals are a great deal of fun. I'm not too keen on "pack 'em in like sardines" events, but having some room to roam, wonder, and discover is a delight.

My job allows me to contribute to the development of others which is both rewarding and fulfilling. I live a short distance from wooded park lands, so long walks clear the mind and recharge the body's batteries. (My day always includes 30-minutes of exercise.)

The evening doesn’t end much better than sitting on the back porch with a good friend, drinking a glass of wine, sharing creative ideas...or settling the world's problems, then retiring for mutual closeness. I relish those quiet times.

I'm a life-long learner and naturally curious about many things, especially about other cultures. (My ultimate vacation was 3-weeks in Japan.)

If you are artistically inclined in any capacity and are willing to share your creative ideas, you will have my grateful attention.

The child in me is still alive, well, and seeking engagement. I bring him out to play whenever I have the opportunity. He loves magic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a proud single parent, raising a daughter who has become my best friend. I'm excited for her as she makes the transition to college and her own life...and I'm aware that I'm entering a new life phase myself.

I consult on learning projects for our corporate university. This allows me to work on projects that help others...a wonderful feeling. It also allows me to interact with so many different people at various points in their development.

Keeping fit and healthy is very important for me. My preference is walking, but I'll "stair step" or do floor exercises if the weather isn't favorable.

I have a small dog, a Japanese Chin, and I prefer to be around animals.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding creative solutions for life's problems and the humor in most situations. I'm also good at helping others discover their unique talents.

I'm also not bad at finding the magic moments that are waiting just around the corner.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That would be my wit...although I have been told that I have kind eyes.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ah, at the moment, I have a Friday night ritual. I enjoy Monster Movie Night, which involves watching classic (and not so classic) horror and fantasy films. It allows me to relive some delightful memories of being a child and sitting up late on Friday nights to watch Double Chiller Theatre. Wine, cheese and FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN.
