Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a friendly, practical, curious, generous and gracious woman. I
spend a fair amount of time working--teaching, consulting and doing
psychotherapy. The rest of the time I like to cook for my friends,
walk the dogs in the forest near where I live, read, go to movies,
theater, dance performances--a regular kind of life with a circle
of long time friends who are smart and funny. Periodically I visit
my daughter who lives in Tahoe (and whose friends are smart and
It has been a couple of years since I ended a long term
relationship. We are still friends. I remain in contact with his
daughters, who bring their beaux to me for "the interview".
I would like to meet a really nice man who likes women, dogs, trees
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading-- sometimes get totally absorbed in a book and stay up too
late. Just stayed up reading one I bought from a vendor (the
author) outside Peets--a Berber author writing about fleeing
Algeria--fleeing over and over again--getting sent home over and
over again. Quite an astonishing journey.
Periodically traveling--some adventure, some third world. Just
tried to work out getting on my sister's sailboat to sail with her
in Malaysia but she was never in port long enough for me to fly to
there where ever she was. Sigh.
Going to the theater, going to too many committee meetings,
exercise, walking the dogs in the woods.
Spending time in New Mexico with artist friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Other than my work, I am good at finding amazing and useful cooking
tools. I am good at reading maps and solving problems. Also good at
getting lost in really interesting places. Good at putting on my
shoes and going for a walk. Good at picking out ripe peaches and
fresh corn. Good at using my electric screwdriver. Really good at
being a friend.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
White peaches, books, my daughter, my friends, the woods, my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I once asked my father this question and he replied that he
counted. COUNTED?? Counted things, sounds, I don't know. Otherwise
he seemed pretty normal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Nothing typical. Watering orchids, feeding friends, going to
music--heard an amazing a cappella male rock band not too long
ago--House Jacks. Such an odd name for such a wonderful group. I
came out of there just filled with music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For several years, in my youth, I taught clowns at Ringling Bros
Barnum and Bailey Circus. And I don't even think clowns are funny.
