My self-summary
Hi! Are you a great guy to play with, talk to, love, and share some of life's adventures, intimacy and some serious laughing? Easy companionship is most important to me, followed by strong character, solid values of honesty, friendship, loyalty, family and integrity. You will get that from me, count on it. I'm a nature girl and I love weekend getaways that include hiking or other outdoor endeavors, so lets work up a sweat on the bike or the trail or in our kayaks. I love scuba diving, travel, hiking, backpacking, skiing, kayaking, swimming, biking, photography, sailing, food and wine! I'm not obsessed with activities, I just like a lot of things! I'm also a thoughtful, keenly insightful, wise lady and I enjoy spiritual life without a lot of ritual, rigor or fanfare. My life philosophy/spiritual leanings include being raised Christian, influenced heavily by eastern thought, a believer in Unity principles.

Quiet times, reading in front of the fire, enjoying your cooking (hint, hint) or ordering a fabulous pizza are always sweet things to do but since I LOVE blues music, dancing, and concerts, going out with my partner is very important, too! I like the ballet (you are not required to go) but can't stay awake in the symphony any more, though I really love classical music! But you can take me to a baseball game and I'll keep up! I look forward to some deep conversations, discussion about the movie we just saw, values, personal development, transformational work, the Enneagram, the nature of Universe, - these are things I love sharing with a partner. Followed by shopping.

I'm a Dem, I vote, am patriotic, middle of the road, lean right on law and order, and fiscal issues, and lean left on taking care of people. I shy away from political arguments, so don't make me do it!

I love to have fun and bring a great sense of humor to most situations. I love to laugh and be silly, and hope that my partner laughs easily. You are a man who is "up to something." Something for the good of the order, the partnership, the community, the earth. What are you up to?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working in the senior assisted living field as a marketing director for a very popular 'community' in Oakland. I love it. A couple of years ago I completed a trip to India with Rotaplast, an organization that takes surgeons to third world countries and repairs cleft lips and palates. Very moving experience and I'll continue to do this type of thing for the rest of my life.
I’m really good at
Picking out the wine. Putting people together for fun, fundraising, eating, do-gooding. I'm also good at entertaining in the home, athletic endeavors, photography, making enchiladas, apple pie.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big smile, curious, sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and just bought a Kindle Fire. Shantaram, Cutting for Stone, historical novels, fiction with truth...Hawaii, Pillars of the Earth, Bel Canto, Poisonwood Bible, all Michener. Rumi! I've read a lot of the classics but have learned to have more fun than that now. Music is my passion these days, primarily blues, live or recorded. Tommy Castro, BB King, Jimmy Thackery, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, Eva Cassidy, Eric Clapton, kd Lang; Love classical, new age, spiritual (Peter Kater soothes my soul) and fusion jazz makes me happy, too. Of course, I enjoy comedy. Duh. Movies...intelligent, thoughtful, relevant, funny, romantic, meaningful, honest and not violent. Too many to name! Food: I love it.
The six things I could never do without
My son, of course
The outdoors
A cat in the house
My close friends
Chocolate, skiing, water (rivers and seas)
The delete button
Sounds like more than 6!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can better serve my community, globally and locally.
What's the highest and best use of me?
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy...organically (because I forgot to plan something) ...hanging out with friends, taking in local live music, a little dancing, light supper, and conversing! How civilized! What I'd like to be doing is dancing my fanny off to a rockin'blues band with a good dancer, till we drop!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm easily charmed by excellent writers, sailors, deep sexy voices, men in uniform, and men who read (Rumi) or write poetry. The rest you'll have to hear about in person!
You should message me if
You are truly interested in exploring a deeply satisfying partnership with a good woman. OR you have some excess expensive wine around the house, need a friend, want to go dancing, or you would like a sailing buddy. Oh, and you are not married! Thanks for stopping by!
