My self-summary
**Read the last paragraph of this section first and, if interested, welcome back to the top.**

I am from coastal New England which will always feel like home even though I have not lived there for 17 years. I enjoy travel as it seems many do who are here in the land of online wonderment. When in foreign lands I make an effort to learn about the life of the communities I visit...I am an ethnographer at heart.

I honor integrity and self reflection and have an exuberance for life that can be contagious. I appreciate those who think about how his/her life fits into a greater context while at the same time not taking it all too seriously...I get along best with those who are able to laugh at themselves and who encourage me to do the same.

Water, music, and movement balance me. I will swim/surf in any cold body of water even though I'll never say no to the tropics. As a dancer I am intrigued by movement inspired by personal reflection and perspective.
For example:

a company whose work speaks to the human experience in Cuba

*****I have been single for a good stint of time and have enjoyed and lived fully in my independence all the while learning a great deal. I desire meaningful connection in the physical, soulful, spiritual, playful, and partnership realms. I am not looking for a man to fit into a "package" I create....quite the contrary....I am excited to co-create. Chemistry is something that flows naturally when we are open to it and it can take time to establish our comfort level with one another to allow it to flow forth. I welcome the opportunity to make myself vulnerable with a man who is also ready to do the same in partnership.******
What I’m doing with my life
- Making sure the next generation is equipped with the critical thinking skills, self confidence, and compassion to take the risks necessary to make positive change in this wonderful and crazy world.
- helping people live more comfortably in their bodies. check out www.gyrotonic.com
- learning as many languages as my brain can keep organized
- practicing slowing down and finding pleasure in simplicity
- getting to and in the ocean as much my time and little carrito will allow
I’m really good at
multi-tasking, getting the attention of hormone engulfed teenagers without saying a word, telling animated stories, laughing at your animated stories, being flexible, getting spiders out of the house without hurting them, silliness and sarcasm, being objective and recognizing my subjectivity, cooking yummy food while drinking wine, imitating people, tripping and recovering gracefully, bringing people together, getting dirty, cleaning up.
The first things people usually notice about me
I move with grace, I laugh even when I'm feeling scattered, great booty (disclaimer: my housemate told me to write this...he said it would be unfair to not include it, not my idea as I am not the best at self-promotion)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: a few titles I have enjoyed wholeheartedly: Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Brief and Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao and The Time Traveler's Wife as well as academic reading, classics, and news. I just finished Finding Mañana, memoirs about the Mariel Boat lift from Cuba. Super interesting and sad and am now reading Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende....it's intense.

MUSIC: oooofff! this list could go on for days: reggae/dancehall, Hip Hop (of the conscious political sort), Blues, Jazz, Forro, Pagode, Samba, MPG, Bossa Nova, Bomba, Nueva Trova, Bachata, Merengue, Son Jarocho....

For your listening pleasure: Danay Suarez, her words in this song scratch a place of conflict in my heart....one that still remains to find resolution.

another that I was listening to while writing my profile:

ARTISTS: Calle 13, Macaco, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Nas, Tribe Called Quest, Gyptian, John Legend, Erykah Badu, Jarabe de Palo, Ojos de Brujo, Sao Jorge, Caetano Veloso, Djavan....lists get annoying

FOOD: I eat well as a means to feel good and take care of myself but also to support local and sustainable agriculture (including meat that is raised as it should be...in pastures). I love to eat out as much as I like to try new recipes at home....food brings people together.
The six things I could never do without
olive and coconut oils
being submerged and weightless in water
Touch and all the other senses
a cozy hoodie combined with flip flops
Wide open space
friends/family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-too much....all the while reminding myself to trust the process
-tides, wind, swell, swell direction and the combination of all four
-if I should drink coffee or opt for tea
-ways to construct my life to live closer to the ocean
On a typical Friday night I am
sharing dinner, biking over hill and dale, at a dance performance, reading a book, out dancing, watching a movie, turning in early to get to the ocean first thing in the morning
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have secrets, we all have secrets...they are to be shared intimately.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 35–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
1. you want to meet one another in the flesh and are curious to learn more about me and share about yourself.

2. you are open to explore where our connection may lead and open to the idea of something long term if it feels right.

3. you want a partner for weekend getaways, to surf ocean waves, camping in the redwoods, to explore a new city, dance the night away, and/or to ride bikes to any destination.
