I keep wondering.
I love people and their endless variety. I am quite certain that I
will enjoy getting to know you, even if we have little in common. I
like figuring out how we all make our way in the world. I will want
to know about your tattoos, your lovers, your scars and your smile.
I'll ask lots of questions and be impressed if you do too.
What I’m doing with my life
I love the combination of trying to do well by doing good. I'm
raising good kids. I'm squeezing in more than i thought was
possible in less time. I'm laughing. a lot. I'm being inconsistent

Food. I like it and I feel like our relationship continues to evolve.
The six things I could never do without
Books, friends, dancing, touch, my kids, loving my work.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people look so sad.
Why having an open mind appears to be so difficult for so many
Relationships and their complexity, exercise and food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home with my kiddos, out on the road at a conference or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm mildly afraid of heights. I'm more analytical than is probably
good for me. I admit most private things willingly, but you have to
ask questions to get answers.
You should message me if
You are confident and open. You say yes more often than no and look for adventure as well as comfort. You ask questions.
You are still exploring who you are and like that I am too.
You would like to go with me to a great concert or festival in the near future....let's go create a memory.
