Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have read some impressive self-summaries on this site and know I
am a blue collar mover of words when it comes to writing about
myself. I am a listener by trade so I wish I were a little more
adept at this. I can be reserved and also out-going. I enjoy
watching college football as well as the ballet. I prefer summer to
winter but like all seasons. I am happy and balanced and looking
for the same. I'm still feeling my way around this site so I may be
slow to respond to messages but I will respond.
I am self-employed as a yoga instructor (the HOT one) and a
psychotherapist with a private practice. I did the 9-5 thing for
years and now enjoy the freedom and independence that comes with
being self-employed. I wish I had discovered it sooner!
I was born and raised in the South but when people meet me they
think I'm from CA. I've been to CA and I don't know what they
I would describe myself as spiritual rather than religious.
However, I do appreciate being brought-up in a family where
religion was as much a part of life as meals. Speaking of which, my
Mom is a fantastic cook - but I am not. I did live in New Orleans
when I was in grad school so I know good food and can make a couple
I'm in a book club and read books I would never have picked-up
otherwise. It's one of the benefits. Some of our liveliest
discussions are of those books we didn't like! Usually Pulitzer
Prize winners. Books that have stuck with me are: The Alchemist,
Many Lives, Many Masters, Crossing to Avalon - well, really, there
are so many.
I would be interested in hearing from you if you're at that stage
of life where you are authentic and feel complete within yourself.
I like being around people who have done some self-examination and
continue to grow. Maybe we could grow together.........
Please do not contact me if you are married or unhappy in your life
right now. Smoking, more than occasional drinking. intolerance of
differences and dishonesty are deal breakers.
