My self-summary
"One's destination is never a place but a new way of
looking at things". -Henry Miller

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls" -Joseph Campbell

Personally I am :

* Looking for opportunities to grow

* Meeting new people......

* Learning new things.....

* Laughing and living .......

* Getting back to my creative roots....

* Knowing what I want and having a plan to get there.

I am both intense and carefree; well educated and fun.

I enjoy living life out loud.

I love the outdoors and all the riches that come with living in Oregon; the beach, the mountains, the valley, lakes, rivers ,all the great towns, the wonderful food, the world class libations, an accessible & vibrant arts and music scene .

There is so much to explore right here in our backyard and then there is travel and other cultures ....so, I want to continue to explore this and so much more and while totally comfortable spending time with myself, I think it's better to have someone to share and experience lifes explorations!
What I’m doing with my life
Running my own Business.
Learning, Laughing and Having Fun.

"The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware; joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware"

and so many great movies... and music

I love music, it can and does set the tone for your day/moment.

I owned a live music venue/ pub and we hosted local, regional and national acts-across all genre

I like to listen to music and go to shows; I'm willing to travel to hear what I want to hear when I want to hear it ...( within reason)

I love watching live dance & theater

I enjoy tasting beer & wine and talking to those that make it.

In fact I think that people who take the time to express themselves artistically are fascinating ( cooks, winemakers, brewers , dancers,actors, artrist, artisans, performers..etc.)

Good food with nice music and good friends, ah now thats livin'......

Food wise most anything e.g. italian,spanish(tapas), all kinds of seafood, cheeses, cuban, thai, sushi, lebeneese, vietnameese, chinese, greek , french, mexican, bbq, southern hi and lo country , peruvian , modern american farm to table, classic american...etc -however, no insects, or super slimy sea stuff and no no no to liver!

We are blessed to live in an area with such a lush culinary landscape. The beer, The wine, The food ...OH MY!!
I love dining out...and yet it is one of those activities that is better shared than alone.....alas the quest for a dinner date.
The six things I could never do without
wine/beer/coffee
music/dance/tomfoolery
family & friends
good conversation
cooking for other people (good food w/great atmosphere)
water (to drink,to play in, help things grow...)
mountains,lakes,rivers and oceans to explore
I spend a lot of time thinking about
**see all of the above**

...specifically though;

How to be great.
How to better relate and connect with people and their ideas.

TIME and how it starts and stops, freezes and explodes.
'HOW A MOMENT IN TIME CAN APPROACH PERFECTION.'
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after a long work week.. cooking, eating and talking with friends....... and wine, don't forget the wine (ok! sometimes its beer and/or burbon). Perhaps going out to a show or performance.
