I am lively of mind and body, and cheerful by nature.
I am unorthodox, semi-smart, and creative.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard at things I love to do! Teaching high school,
parenting my 11 year old daughter, seeing family and friends,
getting out to live music, going for long walks, finding
cheerful/funny/inspirational movies, and smearing pastels on
canvas...these are a few of my favorite things.
I’m really good at
Remembering each moment counts, and appreciating my blessings. This
world, with all its convoluted injustices, is full of colors,
sounds, sights and smells, and endless motion! A perceiver's full
The first things people usually notice about me
Whew...beauty (and so much more), is in the eye of the beholder.
Maybe they see kindness in the eyes, and a healthy supply of
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have read a lot...but I would rather get to some live music,
especially the blues and world music. Last year I saw several blues
shows, went to a four day Worldfest, and saw more music in parks,
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: music, art, exercise(walking, tai chi), my
kids, following a curious trail, and amorous exploration.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mysteries of life, and potential...people at their best...
music! I think a lot about the people I see day to day.
I am full of wonder for women...their complexities, and ensuing
variables...physics in Motion
On a typical Friday night I am
Home with my child, listening to music...maybe smearing pastels on
canvas. I am appreciating life...hachachacha! Again, where's that
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i take sorry pics.
aside from that? I'm sitting here in limbo, waiting for the tide to roll... looking for symbiosis...let's create a mutually enhancing Oasis.
Perhaps this article from Chelsea Chapman says it best for me:
Q: How would you characterize American women when it comes to approaching love? And what makes French women different?
A: American women (and Americans in general) tend to be very goal-oriented when it comes to love, sex, and dating. Rather than setting things in motion and embracing the unknown, Americans generally prefer to set things in stone with a list of clear objectives, goals and outcomes: Is he/she my soul mate or my future spouse? Where, exactly, is this relationship going? Does he/she love me, or not? From the time we’re little girls, we grow up thinking about love in terms of total love or absolute rejection — unlike the French.
Even as children we say, “He loves me/He loves me not” when picking off flower petals and pondering love. A French girl, however, grows up with this refrain instead: “He loves me a little, a lot, madly, passionately, or not at all.” From the get-go, she thinks of love not in terms of black and white (either/or) but in shades of gray; love comes in a whole spectrum of possibilities. That’s a very different way of looking at love.
