My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a poet and nature photographer. Have had a life-long interest in wisdom & spirituality. I love the outdoors & having fun (bumper cars, bananagrams). I enjoy deep conversations, and also just being quiet. I'm kind, generous, warm, silly, usually soft spoken but I do have intensity when I feel passionately about a subject.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing poetry, learning Italian, appreciating the natural beauty around me, "eating" my way around the world by trying different countries' cuisines in Portland restaurants, being a good friend, helping my aging parents. I believe in love, joy, laughter, appreciation, compassion.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Enjoying moments of beauty throughout the day ("oh look there's a hummingbird" or the way rain drops silver a branch); planning local adventures; choosing gifts; remembering birthdays; celebrating; playfulness; appreciation; communication; compassion; being a loyal friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out enjoying a frozen yogurt, or attending a friend's poetry reading, or at home enjoying a bowl of popcorn with a movie.
