My self-summary
I might be a "double" damn Yankee as I have been in Atlanta for 20 years, but am a California girl at heart. Originally from NYC area I have strayed, culturally, a bit far south and a little too long though I enjoy the sunshine, warm weather and good friends. Wanting to live in a more progressive area and find a sympatico community. Will hopefully relocate farther north or west. 6 months working in the garden at Esalen might be a great transition. So would cooking school in Bangkok or Tokyo. I have my dreams.......
I think outside of the box but keep a care for what is going on inside. Prioritize a sense of humor and to "keep it real". Time is precious. I have been working in the healing arts and teach Compassionate Communication (a consciousness and skill set to create more satisfying communication). I volunteer with refugees, mentor cancer survivors on their journeys and edit a Nonviolent Communication newsletter.

For enjoyment: art, music, conversation, indie and documentary films, planetariums, travels, hiking, fabulous healthy food, reading, (lust for) learning, meditation, being a museum docent, the symphony, organic gardening. Want to try more outdoor sports and am delightedly learning more about science.

At one time I was a sophisticated New York stockbroker (so what - family business) but eventually reconnected with my passion for wholeness and health. It is still a quest and I am insatiably curious about almost everything. We didn't say "shut up" in my house growing up but every darn time I asked "why" I got that "there you go again" look.
Still sophisticated and seeking but playful, warm and thoughtful in the face of the great mystery of life. I am looking to create a mutually respectful partnership with someone who would value the same. Then comes the fun...
