My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am passionate aboutthe arts, healing, and spirituality. My life, personal and professional, incorporates all of these. I am inspired by the opportunity to witness and support people's transformation and growth. I am committed to my own transformation and growth as well, which is an ongoing journey.
Silliness and play are essential. I love creating, witnessing, and performing music, dance, and theater with other creative souls.
It's a bit out of character to be on this site, given my computer revulsion (or is it repulsion?), but a friend suggested it and it seems like a reasonable way to find people I wouldn't otherwise meet. So here I am, typing words on a screen connected to a machine that causes my brain circuitry to rapidly deteriorate...
I prefer human contact to online "connecting". I do not use a cell phone that is smart in any way, and I have no experience with I-things like Pods and Pads. I don't know what tablets or blackberries are, other than aspirin and fruit... I prefer it that way. I enjoy face to face, voice to voice, heart to heart interactions.

I am creative, curious, compassionate, communicative, expressive, eloquent, playful, passionate, soulful, sensual, spiritual, and apparently almost always alliterative.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creating it, one moment at a time...
Discovering who I'm becoming, Finding ways to express who I already am,
Trusting that whatever I'm doing and however I'm being, there is always the next breath and the next moment and the next possibility.
Other than that, I'm generally chopping vegetables.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-teaching others how to do the things I love (such as experiential psychotherapy, body percussion, Playback Theater, Israeli folkdance)
-acknowledging the vast universe of things I'm not really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically - my olive skin, my eyes, my lack of tallness
Emotionally/spiritually - my presence, my attention, my compassion
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love the music of many composer/lyricists, including:
Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, Thirteen)
Adam Guettel (Light in the Piazza, Myths and Hymns, Floyd Collins)
Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, John and Jen)
Stephen Sondheim (everything!)
Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell, Children of Eden, Wicked)
Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret, Zorba)
Rodgers and Hart/Hammerstein (everything!)
Ahrens/Flaherty (Ragtime, Once on this Island)

Anything on Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
Anything on Ericksonian Hypnosis
Tom Robbins novels - Jitterbug Perfume and Skinny Legs and All
All of Geneen Roth's books, especially When Food is Love and Women, Food, and God
The Sufi Book of Life
Poetry by Rumi and Hafiz
Elizabeth Gilbert: Eat, Pray, Love
AJ Jacobs: My Life As An Experiment
Michael Pollan: In Defense of Food
Anne Lamott: Traveling Mercies
Bill Bryson: A Walk In The Woods
And last but certainly not least : The Stupids Step Out

I generally gravitate towards substances that I can readily identify as actual food. If it grew from or freely roamed on the Earth, that's good. If it is simply prepared and not overwhelmed with salty, sweet, saucy, sticky stuff, that's really good. If it's beautiful in color and satisfying in texture and enticing in aroma, that's excellent. And if it comes in a package and lived forever on a supermarket shelf and only survived due to the intervention of artificiality and preservatives, well- that's just wrong.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
vegetables, room to move, indoor plumbing, kindness, dental floss, a view of the sky
And Fragrance-free products (important enough to defy the six thing limit, and inherently way more than six things)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
which is apparently actually quite something.
It can fill countless hours and answer so many questions:
"Whatcha thinkin' about?" -Nothing.
"What have you been up to?" - Nothing.
"What's on your mind?" - Nothing.
"What'd you do this weekend?" - Nothing.
"What are you seeking?" - Nothing.
"What are you running from?" - Nothing.

See - it's an endless supply of material.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- that I am significantly disturbed by the idea that countless people are revealing their private thoughts to the world on this lifeless screen for any and all eyes to see...
while children are keeping secrets from their parents, partners are living hidden lives and lying to each other, and we seem to have lost our discernment of appropriate boundaries and our capacity to co-create true intimacy in our lives.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you have actually read my profile, and have a desire to respond to something I've written. Or...
-you have something inspirational or kind or thoughtful or brilliant to say. Or...
-you simply want to reach out because you have the intuitive sense that we are supposed to connect with each other . Or...
-you have a really good reason of your own.

Please note: If your message simply says "Hi. How are you doing today?" (or any version thereof), I will most likely not respond. It makes no sense to me. I don't know you and we're not yet engaged in casual familiar conversation. Please save that question for a later message once we have connected, if we have in fact connected, which we will not if you have nothing else to say in your first message. Much appreciated!
