I'm political, and lean lefty, liberal and I was raised by anti-war activists, and my mom went to Woodstock. Oh, and if you said that your right to own a gun was more important than your right to vote, don't contact me.
I'm a professional, in a management position in the health care field. I'm looking to grow more professionally, possibly go back to school again, get an NP or phd. I like to keep growing and learning.
I've raised two kids, I was a good mom, read to my kids, took them to museums, parks, out biking on the Charles, baby behind me in the carrier, the older one with training wheels at first. They turned out great. They're in their 20's now.
I grew up reading voraciously, wasn't allowed to watch TV. So I missed out on a lot of the cultural touhstones of my generation. I'm supposed to be a Boomer, but my Mom was more of that generation than I was. I fell in with rockers and punk rockers in my 20's. Met my husband (he was in a Rock band) when I was 24, married him when I was 30, left him when I hit 50, the year our youngest left for college, I had grown and changed, he hadn't. I went back to school twice in that time. started a serious career, got involved in community activism, started practicing meditation...
My buddhism is a major part of my life. I practice in the Tibetan tradition, and meditate daily, and go on retreats, study, read and continue to grow, hopefully, in wisdom and compassion. I'd really like to meet someone with with a similar out look on life, who I could really talk with. If not a Buddhist, at least some one who is into deepening themselves, who's introspective. But its not just talk I'm interested in - you need to be active and healthy, and grounded.
