My self-summary
A little about me...
I am an intuitive seeker of the joys of life from down to earth pleasures of a country diner to lights of Broadway to sound of lions mating on a sultry night. Now creating more loving connections to share the ride. I am intelligent, fit, nature/music loving, humorous, adventurous, occasionally offbeat or irreverent. (Shades of "Elaine" on Seinfeld color my humor).
Coexisting is an introspective heartfelt desire to access a peaceful dimension beyond this chaotic world. I try to live "in the moment." Recognize humor in life as well as the insanity. Strive to be authentic even when the culture doesn't encourage it. Tend to be a candid communicator.
Transitioned nursing to a successful sales career. Enjoy breaking through barriers of formality. I have birthed no babies, but greatly appreciate a happy& mildly dysfunctional family.
Having traveled extensively, cherish shared memories of colorful characters on the road. Love occasional getaway weekends or picnic in the splendor on top of Mt. Tam. Eclectic past episodes of serious fun...hiked New Zealand, jumped out of a plane, swam with dolphins, rafted the Grand Canyon, safaried in Africa, Turkey,Bali. Activities generally simpler these days but plan to hang glide for next birthday.

About the one I'm looking for...
You have a rich interior life and an aesthetic edge, but definitely the ability to crack yourself up. I appreciate an engaging conversational partner who is capable of passion, romance, and joy. Thrilling to be with someone who shares the initiative to plan and organize leisure. I fantasize about more spontaneity.
Envisioning a companion to explore beyond the obvious, arts, hiking, white water rafting, travel, and ?? Spectator so much.
I am in synch with someone who is young at heart, kind, social, physically fit, worldly, attractive, financially secure, and self aware (as much as any of us can be!)
I am a Visual Virgo for better or for worse. Not a fan of much facial hair. Skin feels much more inviting. No rugburn. Turn on is a fit physique with a genuine bright smile that lights up your eyes. A great spirit who makes me laugh...the best!! I'm sure you've heard that one a few times, but it's oh so seductive and true.
I am not looking for a clone, but hopefully our values guide us in a similar direction. I have found meditation to ground and expand my inner life and love. If we don't share that aspect, please be understanding of what it contributes to my life.

I'd just like to add...
More than anything I am ready to greet the day with my best friend and lover. If we are lucky, we will be members of that exclusive club who share each day with their best friend. One of those members put it this way..."Every time I hear the key in the door, I know the party's about to start."
No matter what the world is up to, my vision in this "third act" is that the best is yet to come. Thanks for hanging in there through a detailed wish list. If this feels familiar, I look forward to meeting you!

What I’m doing with my life
Aside from the usual activities of life, I am taking time to know myself better. Have been involved in some aspect of the health care industry most of my adult life. Have a great enthusiasm for preventative care and the mind/body relationship.
I am a volunteer at a fabulous local theatre.
I’m really good at
Making formal conversations more relaxed. Making people smile. Loving animals. Acknowledging contributions and kindness. Feeling grateful.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually notice my blonde hair, but happier when they say I have a really great smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies..Oldies like American Beauty, Moonstruck, Out of Africa. Many recent ones I'll share later.
Live performances of all kinds.
TV Shows..The Daily Show, Mad Men, Homeland, Modern Family, Real Time with Bill Maher, PBS Frontline for documentaries. From the past SNL,Frasier, Seinfeld, Oprah, Sopranos, Sex in the City.
Most music except C&W. Nostalgic about Bruce Springsteen/James Taylor. Love to explore "world" music, especially Middle Eastern and Indian and anything with soul. Classics like Sinatra. Traditional Hawaiian transports me to the islands that I love.
All food created with care.. Korean least favorite.
One favorite book comes to mind...The Kite Runner
Six things I could never do without
Caring friends & family, Sense of humor, Meditation & Spiritual Connection, Natural Beauty, Sensuality, Adventure big & small.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where did I put those darned keys??? Glasses??
How can I make the best use of these remaining years? .
Appreciating what is happening in the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Feeling no pressure to be in or out. Depends on what feels satisfying at the time. The person(s) I am spending that time with have become increasingly important to me.
Lucky to live in the BayArea for so much talent and beauty to be experienced. Only limited by the imagination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For now...I am better at giving advice than taking it. Can you relate?
You should message me if
You should message me if you have taken the time to read the details of my PROFILE and it feels familiar. Be kind to yourself and to's not always the easiest process. Need to handle disappointment gracefully when it happens and move on knowing we are all deserving of love and the best match.
On an extra note....icing on the cake if you enjoy HAWAII! Love the Big Island where I have friends.
The two of us
