Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey fellas, if you want me to write back, please indicate that you
have read my profile. Try to impress me! I'm worth it.
My tastes are fine and funky. My Parisian friends called me a
Bo-Bo(Bourgeoise-Bohemienne). That sounds really pretentious.
Apologies. It's a way of talking about appreciating quality without
being obsessively acquisitive. I come from Swedish and Finnish
farmers who grew wheat and flax, and in the next generation became
teachers and librarians. I still have a few of my
great-grandmothers' pieces. I am a writer, researcher, editor and
An ex recently said about me: "She is so full of love. Everything
she touches becomes beautiful."
That also sounds like bragging. Apologies. He said it! But I do
love to promote beauty and harmony in my friends and surroundings.
I am impressed and awed by Mother Nature's elegance, and wonder why
we can't just get with her program instead of spending so much
time, energy, and money trying to thwart her. There's a sun up
there, let's figure out solar! There is no scenario in which we say
that well, solar is great and could be essentially free, but it
produces poison that has a half-life longer than the human race has
been conscious of itself. Cows are not healthy crowded together,
their hooves pounding down the soil, eating corn and getting fat,
unhappily mooing as they stand in their own and their sisters'
excreta—which, in the aggregate, produces pollution. This scenario
destroys soil and water supplies, and the meat from these unhappy
beings causes heart disease and obesity in people, and, obviously,
we should consider the suffering of the cows themselves. The way we
make them live just is not cool. Cows like to roam free and eat
grass. If they roam free and eat grass, their hooves aerate the
soil, their excreta feeds the grass and the eco-system is
I propose we follow the beauty way, and try with all our might to
lessen suffering and heighten bliss and pleasure for all
I'm trying to balance my nice-nice Libra/Virgo qualities that are
in a grand opposition to a helluva lotta Aries fire.
I am very loyal and have a strong sense of fairness.

A writer, a reader, an editor, a dancer, a listener, a healer. But
what I really want to do is direct.
I love to dance, but haven't gotten enough of that lately. Join me?
I'd like to learn tango. But I also just like to get down.
I come from a family of musicians and I play a little cello.
I study yoga, tantra, meditation, Jungian psychology, energy
healing and shamanism.
I need to hike or swim (especially in the ocean) or bike or do a
hatha session often. I would like someone to join me for these

I am an adventurous cook, and like to use every dish in the
kitchen. Or just make a nice cheese sandwich (but the cheese? I've
got some Toma from Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company I'm ready
to break open). (I actually did open it. It was OK.)
I have five giant bars of raw Peruvian cacao in my fridge and
smoked Spanish paprika on my spice shelf. (I'm on my last bar of
Peruvian chocolate now, and going fast!)
My secret go-to ingredients are saffron, Cointreau, cardamom or

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
One of my spiritual practices is to once in a while "do without."
