My self-summary
I have read some impressive self-summaries on this site and know I am a blue collar mover of words when it comes to writing about myself. I am a listener by trade so I wish I were a little more adept at this. I can be reserved and also out-going. I enjoy watching college football as well as the ballet. I prefer summer to winter but like all seasons. I am happy and balanced and looking for the same. I'm still feeling my way around this site so I may be slow to respond to messages but I will respond.
I am self-employed as a yoga instructor (the HOT one) and a psychotherapist with a private practice. I did the 9-5 thing for years and now enjoy the freedom and independence that comes with being self-employed. I wish I had discovered it sooner!
I was born and raised in the South but when people meet me they think I'm from CA. I've been to CA and I don't know what they see.
I would describe myself as spiritual rather than religious. However, I do appreciate being brought-up in a family where religion was as much a part of life as meals. Speaking of which, my Mom is a fantastic cook - but I am not. I did live in New Orleans when I was in grad school so I know good food and can make a couple of things.
I'm in a book club and read books I would never have picked-up otherwise. It's one of the benefits. Some of our liveliest discussions are of those books we didn't like! Usually Pulitzer Prize winners. Books that have stuck with me are: The Alchemist, Many Lives, Many Masters, Crossing to Avalon - well, really, there are so many.
I would be interested in hearing from you if you're at that stage of life where you are authentic and feel complete within yourself. I like being around people who have done some self-examination and continue to grow. Maybe we could grow together.........
Please do not contact me if you are married or unhappy in your life right now. Smoking, more than occasional drinking. intolerance of differences and dishonesty are deal breakers.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching yoga classes in Atlanta.. - very hot! A psychotherapy practice of manageable size. Some data entry work for a nonprofit. Livin' the dream.

Six things I could never do without
Sense of Humor
The beach
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Different things at different times - sometimes I'm not thinking about anything at all. Ahhh.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends or teaching yoga.
Sometimes staying home and reading a good book or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
C'mon! Really??????????
You should message me if
you are happy, emotionally stable and kind........
