My self-summary
I'm easy-going and laid back with a nice streak of ambition. I don't sweat the small stuff, I strongly believe in live and let live. I'm an optimist, liberal, enjoy the arts and nature. Love children and animals, and live with 3 dogs at the moment. My kids are all grown up and are two of the coolest people I know. I appreciate people who are well informed and are able to draw conclusions for themselves and secure enough in themselves to appreciate other points of view and perspectives. I like to have thoughtful, intellectual conversations about life, world events, goals, etc

I appreciate honesty and kindness and don't believe there is ever a good reason to be rude or disrespectful. Wouldn't it be a better world if random acts of kindness were the norm. Looking for someone who likes to explore the local area and other areas, other cultures.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently left the corporate world and doing all those things I never had time for before...gardening, reading, creating art. I'm in Oregon, but still with lots of ties to Arizona. I'm dong contract work and I am a professional coach - helping people get unstuck and figure out how to be in choice about life. Trying to be the best me I can.

What I'm usually up to - I'm into exploring my new community, the state of Oregon and other cultures. I like to travel and see new things. I love to cook especially with someone else who likes to cook. I like seeing movies on the big screen and at home. I love that I can grow almost anything here and I am! Like to try new things as long as it doesn't involve heights! When I can, I like to hike and take long walks.
I’m really good at
I'm a creative and love to be at the center of something, anything that needs to be created. From creating a solution to a problem, to painting, drawing, etc. I'm really good at coaching others to achieve what they say they want out of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I have 5 or 6 going at once. Love a good mystery, lots of coaching books, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, David Whyte poetry.
Movies - I like stories that are interesting, twisted plots, nothing with violence or scary!
Music - blues, folk, pop, I can't think of any genre that I don't like at least one song.
Food - Organic, healthy, fresh, and love to try new things - just recently stopped eating meat and dairy, still eating fish once in a while.
Six things I could never do without
fresh air
communication with my kids

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life in general. I think a lot about what motivates people to do what they do. The way the brain works fascinates me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends whether I'm just back from traveling for work or have been in town. I'm up for going out, or staying in, depending on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For another time!
