To describe one's self in a couple of paragraphs in a cyber space dimension, hmmmmm. Okay, it is a start and I will play.
I live my days mostly through a spirit of gratitude, curiosity and wonder. Words to describe me: vibrant, warm, playful, intuitive, generous, compassionate, disarming (in a good way), inquisitive, passionate, smart and sexy - so I have been told!
I am originally from the East Coast and still feel those roots running through me as evidenced by my direct sensibilities and a constant craving for New York style pizza. However, the Bay Area is my home and you will also find me hugging trees, soaking in hot springs and hiking as much as possible. Perhaps I have an east coast heart and a west coast soul.
Listening to and discovering new music delights me. Music is a potent medicine. I enjoy learning and discovery and tend to be a seeker of knowledge, wisdom and beauty. Going for a long beautiful hike among redwood trees and ecstatic dance fills me just right. The natural world is my temple and I try to immerse myself as often as possible. And the daily spirit of gratitude has been serving me very well.
So there you have it, my words, revealing and limiting. It all ultimately lies in that mysterious thing called chemistry.
May we all get what we want and need.

Ok, that makes 7!
