My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
in 2007 i took a leap of faith across the country in order to be in the life of my newborn grandson. i left a life i had created, dear friends, familiar neighborhoods, and all those things that felt comfortable and known. during these last 7 years i have been creating a whole different chapter....i have found myself reflecting on how i can still be me, but within a totally different movie. it is mind-expanding. i have found a job i love, new friendships that are deepening, and a sense of freedom as i create myself again. it is so delightful to realize and actualize that i continue to evolve and how awesome is that! maybe it has a lot to do with my belief that i will always land on my feet, that difficult things are surmountable, and i can let go of the small stuff. i generally reframe to the positive, keep my sense of humor and be aware of how we are all pretty much the same when it comes right down to it.
i go in and out of this cyberspace dating thing and find it weird. yet here i am re-writing my profile without the "i like walks on the beach...blah, blah, blah". i do miss someone who would provide that "couple" feeling....that safe enough space to be vulnerable.... that's kind of the out-there hope-for thing. what i'd like 1st is to meet a guy with friendship as the goal. someone to hang with and to stay grounded in the here and now. and saying, "hey , ya' wanna do something tomorrow?" not to worry about baggage....we all have some. would prefer no more than would fit in the overhead compartment.
if you're of the same mind and would like to meet, send me a message and we'll go from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a psychiatric social worker in a short stay psych. unit in San Leandro. I love my job. i am in the early stages of starting a private practice.
i laugh a lot and make those around me laugh as well. I do the Sunday Times crossword puzzle. working out and staying fit is a regular part of my routine.
i believe in comforting the disturbed and disturbing the comfortable. i try to leave a very small footprint on the planet and believe in tikkun olam.
i love theatre and have started taking an improv class....what fun! i'm also in a reader's theatre meet-up.
my 2 grandkids are my joy. they provide me with the opportunity to be silly, wacky, and play with abandon (which i do anyway).
so much more makes up who i am. what you see is what you get....i have a new york accent and a new york edge.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being a friend.... laughing.....listening.... predicting the exact time i will get to my destination....being funny.....kissing....holding a plank for over 3 minutes...connecting with kids and animals

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my family, a sense of humor, a positive outlook, animals, friends, the kindness of strangers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what a long strange trip it's been. i think about where this country is going and what we are leaving our children. i think about earthquakes.
i also think about how lucky i am to have people in my life i love and who love and support me.
how this next chapter of my life will unfold.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sometimes watching a movie on tv, going out with friends, unwinding from the week and planning my weekend
