My self-summary
....Compassionate, wise, sensual, playful, healthy, intelligent, sexually-empowered, adventurous woman....ready to build epic partnership!

I'm passionate about healthy, delicious food and home-cooked meals made with ingredients from local organic farms; balancing my physical and mental well-being; and conscious, compassionate communication.

Just a few of my interests and favorite forms of fun are: dancing, camping, swimming in the ocean, sunbathing at the beach, backpacking, river rafting, hiking, skiing, cooking, laughing, loving, exploring and understanding consciousness, sensuality, Tantra, watching a funny or inspiring movie or tv show, going to the theater, music, concerts, hot springs, a night on the town in SF and everything from 5 star hotels to back country outings or dusty electronic music festivals. I love to travel. Maui and Mt Shasta's Castle Lake have been recent adventures...I would love to explore more exotic locations in the near future!

I'm an independent, loving single mother of two amazing, sweet teenagers. We are a very close, loving, down to earth family with a rich life here in Santa Cruz. We also take plenty of time to play and adventure out of town. I have an amazing community of friends here in Santa Cruz and love the simple pleasures and natural beauty that abounds here.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am afforded an amazing life working flexible hours, so I can be more available to focus on my family and personal pursuits. I have recently discovered a passion for ballet! I take several classes a week as my primary form of exercise. I have a career that I love and I enjoy the freedom I have now to work as needed and not be tied to a 9-5 job. It also affords me the time and ability to travel and have an active social and personal life. I have been single and focused on family stability and personal growth for few years. Now I'm making time to focus on creating long term conscious partnership as well.... And did I mention ballet? I had no idea only a couple years ago just how good it feels. And I don't think it's for everyone. No, my daughter loves hip hop, and everyone's body is different but mine loves ballet. :). I have no delusion of becoming a professional ballerina ( ok well maybe just a little :) Starting dance classes for the first time at 40, it's more about fitness, an appreciation of the art, and it's a great way to challenge and face your own ageism!

The first things people usually notice about me
My height. I'm 5'10 1/2" but often people think I am taller. Maybe because of my thin build and long legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some books and authors that have changed my life: Thich Nhat Hanh, Echart Tolle, Marshall Rosenberg, Non-Violent Communication, Margot Anand. I love books, movies and music that inspire me. If there are lyrics, I prefer to fill my mind with thoughts that nourish my heart and soul. I love folk music as well as classical and electronic music. I've been known to dance until dawn when inspired by the right environment.
As for food, I eat a wide variety of foods, including an occasional bit of total junk food. Every thing in moderation, including moderation. :) Passionate about health and the environment, I was vegetarian for many years. Currently I am omnivorous and try to eat as sustainably as possible.
The six things I could never do without
My family
Friends / Community
Healthy fresh organic local food!
Sensuality/sexuality
Dancing or just listening to music that inspires me
Compassion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
consciousness, compassion, communication, health, happiness relationship, and connection.
On a typical Friday night I am
There really is no typical, but I could be out at live music, dancing and singing, making dinner for friend, or heading out of town for a weekend away. But often I am enjoying a quiet night and in bed at a decent hour to be rested for ballet classes on Saturday morning. Ideally I would be curled up in bed with my partner after a lovely evening of connection, fun and intimacy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love men
You should message me if
First and foremost...
- You feel passionate about creating a deep loving conscious partnership! Yup, that's why I'm here. I have a great community of friends and I have no interest in hook ups.

- You have a positive outlook on partnership and believe in the nourishing synergistic qualities of relationship.

- You are passionate about your physical, emotional, mental and sexual well being and how you impact your community and the world around you.

- You enjoy and value family and children and would be honored to be a positive influence in the lives of my children who have been without a father for several years.

- You are open to meeting after reading each others profiles and exchanging a few messages. I prefer meeting new people in person as opposed to a long online courtship. :) Feel free to send me long messages if you like! I'm happy to read them, But I tend to spend as little time as possible in front of a screen.
