Thoughtful, caring, fun-loving, comfortable in my own skin, a life-long learner, playful in child-like (not child-ish) ways, a good communicator, honest, a woman of integrity, passionate and compassionate, with the capacity to hold and appreciate paradox -- emotionally, in life, in myself and in others...complex and yet simple and straight forward...
I enjoy yoga, Qi Gong, and Feldenkrais awareness through movement -- my current (albeit not exclsuive) movement practices of choice...and have a spiritual practice that feeds my soul and being...
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference..."
" Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves,
as if they were locked rooms
or books written in a very foreign language.
Don't search for answers, which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.
Live the question now.
Perhaps then, some day far in the future,
you will gradually without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer."
-- Rainer Maria Rilke (translation by Stephen Mitchell)
Doing my best to leave the world a slightly better place
personally and professionally.
-Caring --I am passionate and compassionate
-Dancing -- Salsa, Hi Life, free style...
-Taking time to enjoy the small moments, small things, and beauty that surrounds us

my distinctive -- and infectious -- laugh(ter)
