My self-summary
I prefer oatmeal raisin cookies over chocolate chip.

I am learning to stop competing with myself when I practice yoga.

I love the sound of rivers. Especially big Montana rivers like the Yellowstone, the Madison, the Firehole.

I love sports underdog movies.

I look 10 years younger than I am.

There is nothing better than sleeping in a bed in a tent. Not being alone is actually better.

I believe there’s only one rule - to not trespass on the rights of others.

I struggle with assumptions, my own especially. Curiosity is possibly the most admirable trait I find in people.

I meditate daily. And I consider watching international soccer on television a kind of meditation, as well.

I believe that we’re all doing our best, moment to moment.

I aim to be like water that flows compassionately into the cracks and crevasses of my still hidden self. And into the same places of a woman.
What I’m doing with my life
For a living, I'm a writer, producer, playwright and teacher. For fun, I do the same thing.

I practice yoga regularly and volunteer at Yoga on the Labyrinth. I meditate every day. I have a weekly improv work-out. I play soccer twice a week so often I walk with a sexy limp.

I am helping and witnessing my son turn into a good man.
I’m really good at
Skipping stones
Solving anagrams
Teaching
Making a woman feel free, sexually and otherwise
Skiing
Fly fishing
Hiking far afield
Making children laugh
Quoting Shakespeare
Napping

The six things I could never do without
The only thing I couldn't do without is my goofy/sullen/brilliant/evolving 17-year old son in my life. The rest are simply preferences...

Morning meditation
My tenor ukulele
San Francisco coffee shops
The High Sierra
A really good pair of jeans
The scent of a woman
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... how to let go of thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often teaching. Otherwise cooking dinner, watching a movie, sprawled out on an overstuffed sofa. Alone or with you.
You should message me if
...you're a woman who practices presence, awareness and compassion. (No wounded birds or damsels in distress, please.) And if you enjoy rustic cabins on distant rivers, roaring fires and sheepskin rugs, that's a plus. Not to mention wandering Greek beaches.
