My self-summary
Thank you for stopping by my profile.

I am grateful to say that at this time in my life I feel happy and blessed.
It sounds too simple, I know, but it's true. I have a deep inner peace and joy. I have of course been through my share of hard times, like all of us…. and have learned a great deal, and am grateful for a life of grace. I have two great kids, both adults on their own far away, with whom I'm very close, and 2 year old grandson.

I grew up in NJ, lived many years in Vermont, and now in northern California. I enjoyed my childhood and was lucky to have very supportive parents, a brother, sister; we were raised in a liberal, Reformed Jewish home. I went to college, earning a BA in Dance. I was a professional dancer most of my life (ballet, modern, ethnic, choreography, etc etc), and worked for many years in the dance and disability world, a passion of mine. In the 90's earned a Masters degree in Education which opened many doors. My career has been rich and varied, often fun, certainly creative. Currently I am an ESL teacher in SF, to which I bring creativity and an open heart. I love it!

I am young at heart and have a vibrant spiritual life which guides my inner and outer choices. I am oriented towards being of service and offering kindness and joy. I love being in love, and at the same time, I am in love with life, and thus I'd rather be on my own than be with the 'wrong' person, so to speak. Ultimately, I would like to have a long-term relationship.

I enjoy the exploration, discovery, adventure that relationships can bring. It has been my experience in dating that one never knows why one is meant to meet someone. Several years ago I had a date with a man who has turned put to be one of my closest friends. Another time, a business relationship ensued. You just never know, so I am open.

I think that's all I have to say for now :-)
I wish you all the best in your search for love.
What I’m doing with my life
I live in San Francisco and I teach ESL (English as Second Language). I love my work, and where I live in shared housing with friends. I like to hang out with family and friends, spend time in nature, be of service and do some good in this world, attend music, theatre, and dance venues, cooking for loved ones. I also need and cherish my solitude, silence, and meditation.
I’m really good at
loving, listening, laughing, hugging, singing, dancing, teaching, cooking, being a good confidant and friend, creative thinking, writing, having faith and being positive, being a mom and new grandma :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
my smile and laugh, my eyes, my hair, my warmth of heart
The six things I could never do without
love, laughter, and a gentle rhythm of life
my children, family and friends
a conscious spiritual life
the beauty of nature
the ease of sincere, heartfelt conversation
all things beautiful…. the arts…. music, dance, etc
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How precious life is. Gratitude. The path of a loving life in service.
Wondering…. where is he?
On a typical Friday night I am
R&R... having dinner with family or friends. Taking a long walk. At home watching a movie, listening to music, dancing and cooking....at the same time :-) Just hangin' out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be a 1/2 time jazz dancer for the NY Cosmos Soccer Team in Yankee Stadium. Not all that private I suppose, but amusing.
You should message me if
you are so inspired…...
