I grew up multi-lingual...Does that make me a cunning linguist?
I believe good relationships require work, commitment, and a willingness to listen, give, and agree on digging deep to resolve conflict.
I believe "love is making a soul bargain".
Love is meant to heal:
I want to unite with my calling as a healer. I want to feel peaceful
giving and receiving in egalitarian, expansive, and fulfilling relationships.
I want to renew my life in giving love to a partner, friends, youth(s), community, and the world.
I want to enjoy all the power of love and the erotic, (paraphrase from Audre Lorde"s , "the Pwer of the Erotic"). I want to join with the love that is the highest manifestation of who I am. I want to fully use all that I have learned... and that love can continue to teach me. I want to live on the deepest levels of life, where only love can take me. I want love's light to banish my fears and pain, as I keep returning to love as my touchstone, my birthright, and my Soul's destiny and purpose.
In general, I've worked hard in my life and made a great deal from what I was given. I was fortunate to be raised amidst books, music, art, and intelligent conversation, all of which I still value highly. In these respects, I'm still very European.
I'm from NYC, then lived in remarkable beauty, for 18 years, between farms near Lesbianville, USA. In 2011, I moved back to NYC, but still looking for a studio in Manhattan. (Aren't we all?) I prefer people to space.
I love being outside in nature: kayaking, taking photos, walking my dog.
I value good friends as much as romance, and give good time to a partner. I'm divorced (6 years ago and done), and would happily marry (a woman) again. I love kids, step-kids, and grandkids; and have helped raise a bunch.
I have a gorgeous, snuggly, dog, rescued from the wilds of W. Virginia. She's my 4th service dog. I'm finally getting good at letting them make me "real". "Who rescues who?"
