My self-summary
I’m grounded, balanced, confident, drama-free; practical yet whimsical; organized yet spontaneous. Intellectually curious; embracing complexity and striving for simplicity.
A taker of walks. A night person. Yogi, dancer, NYT reader, NPR listener, movie goer.
Comfortable in my self; grateful for the amusements and enjoyments provided by mind and body.
I've lived in four countries other than the U.S., and different parts of the U.S. I am glad to be home in NYC.
What I’m doing with my life
Settling into my new apartment. Planning my next career move.
I’m really good at
Noticing, listening, thinking, remembering...sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
reddish hair?

The six things I could never do without
coffee
seasons
oceans/rivers/showers
friends
yoga/meditation
sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to keep/what to toss out. What is really necessary.
Whether enormous wealth disparity is an eradicable injustice or a human inevitability.
On a typical Friday night I am
Love to have dinner out; also may relax and read on my own.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’'m looking for the yang to my yin.
You should message me if
... you’re strong, smart, witty, conscientious, and kind – and gainfully employed. Looking for a relationship rather than a hook-up.

And, if after a bit of online communication you feel interested, you don't hesitate to ask a woman out.
