Meaningful conversation, putting people at ease, telling funny stories, being empathetic, cross-country skiing, being there for my friend, persevering when the going gets tough, and being a great massage therapist.

A fun vacation to look forward to
How to affect positive change through my words and actions
Finding the right balance between living in a vibrant, multicultural city with endless opportunities for artistic , social and political engagement, and the joy I derive from playing in natural spaces.
How to bring the things that feed my soul together with the way I pay the rent.
I am just now getting comfortable swimming with my face underwater.
I have had more than one fashion malfunction over the years.
You don't find it physically challenging to smile and laugh;
You wouldn't mind being around someone who might enjoy satirizing cheesy 80s music from time to time;
You might like to go paddling in the summer and skiing in the winter;
You are looking for something other than a "nice wife."
