My self-summary
I'm a woman on a mission to design a brand new bed for a brand new life. It's going to be beautiful!

I'm a dancer and actress who has a second act career in education. I just love what I do, and helping people who need me this way is very rewarding.

I'm a woman returning to art, in the form of writing this time, and trying not to let anybody discourage me. I had something optioned for TV, another got some attention, and maybe I have a publisher this time. Tune in in 9 months to see what gets born of this venture.

I am a yogi, a hiker, and a friend to my own. I adore my sister! I've had wonderful teachers all my life, and am amazed that this time of life is so much fun! I've been loved, and it matters...I still love everyone I ever did...and all things change but that.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in a private practice that helps people learn, read, write. It's really nice work and it all began in a volunteer program in a local shelter, not far from Rock Center. Yes. You could walk from the Rink to the Shelter in 10 minutes. I'm lucky as can be to love what I do and to do it well!
I’m really good at
Friendship and love. I'm a true friend and keep things like thank you notes, love letters, paintings, sculpture, my own dumb poems from 3rd grade. I am a very good hiker and I learned that last summer making the pilgrimage to Santiago. 256K on foot! I'm a dedicated writer and have a deep need to do it every day. I'm a tantric enthusiast, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big smile, I think. Intelligence, curiosity, generosity, delight. Sensitivity next.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the big food movies: Babette's Feast, Eat Drink Man Woman, Tampopo,
Fanny and Alexander, Black Orpheus, It's a Wonderful Life.

Books: just read May We Be Forgiven, Fools Crow, Great Expectations (again)

My music is partly redneck music, and I can't explain. Lynrd Skynrd except for one lyric in Sweet Home Alabama. Bluegrass, Celtic Music. Oh, and Leonard Cohen. He's my man! (and his age doesn't diminish this at all). I love opera but hate going to it. And classical music is on at my office all day long. Chet Baker is a heartbreaker, so is Sassy, and Ella together with Louis swings! I'm newly into Brazilian jazz, and love live jazz at Lincoln Center near my home.

I love and support dance through the Bill T. Jones/Arne Zane Dance Company and the AbrahaminMotion companies.

I don't have a TV so I have no clue what people are watching.
The six things I could never do without
Stories, yoga, love, children in my life, purpose, cannoli, good wine (but not too much--I don't hold it too well.) OK, seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to control my own game in business, in art, and in relation to my own heart. It's a wild one!
On a typical Friday night I am
Forcing myself out to the National Arts Club to see if any interesting is happening there. Having wine in the prettiest 1870 room in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a glorious romantic. My main picture here is from two Decembers ago..
You should message me if
...if love is your aim, your goal, your pleasure, and your wonder. For a good time petunia, call somebody else.
