Summaries draw a picture. I think this captures part of who I am: short brunette with a bouncy personality, big smile, quick wit and an open mind who lives joyfully.
I strive to be a good person, to make each day count. I can be very serious when considering social problems, who to vote for and where to put my energy. I have worked in environmental non profits for decades and continue, against the odds, to do what I can to help people work together to make the world a healthy place.
How do I convey in this limited space, bound by words, a flat bright screen how moved I feel when laying on the soft earth gazing at the light/shadow patterns made by redwood trees? How excited I get when a new bike lane is striped. That my eyes well up whenever I watch family drama on screen. How I love to get lost to find the unexpected.
OKCupid seems to me to be like a giant meet up - a place where lots of people mingle superficially hoping to connect. I want to meet someone who is looking for a serious relationship. Not immediately, of course, but as a premise for cruising this scene. I am an independent person with a lot of love to give. My only child is in college and I am in a phase of my life similar to my 20s only I have lots more confidence and calmness to really enjoy life's gifts.
More about me...
I also enjoy micro brews, partial to IPAs but always interested in trying something new. Love to visit the many amazing tap rooms and brew pubs in the Bay Area. Excited about Magnolia's new place in Dogpatch. Big fan of red wine, and have found a few whites I like. Earlier this year I checked out the Edna Valley south of SLO - very cool vibe. Want to get back to the south Central Coast again soon. Most recently I have become intrigued by rye whiskeys.
I love to cook, and it's fun to create in the kitchen with a willing accomplice. I grow lots of herbs and try to get to the farmers market weekly.
