My self-summary
I enjoy life and I have an adventuresome spirit. I have a good sense of humor but never at someone else's expense. Good values are important to me as are ethics. I am a great friend to the end. I have a loving heart and I am smart. I am a kind, decent human being-when I die I'll know I tried in some way to make the world a better place.
What I’m doing with my life
I've already lived a full life...organized a big project of a house on wheels moving 1&1/2 miles, I traveled for five months in Bangladesh, I built a successful private practice when in California, I wrote a book that people enjoy reading, and I have had adventures. I am ready to share time with an educated, active, funny, articulate man. I am reinventing my life since I am now single and living in the city-Chicago. I raised a wonderful, smart daughter who is in a great college and I cared for an aging parent, but now I am free and ready to enjoy life to the fullest.
I’m really good at
I am a great friend and companion. I am good at listening and understanding people. I have written an imaginative novel that was well received, thus I am a good writer. I am a good dancer when it comes to free dance. I am quite creative. I am good at problem solving. I can easily say positive things about people. I am good at being optimistic. I am good at in-depth conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
My warm smile, my light hair that is long, and my friendliness is what people notice first. After they know me they see I have a kind heart and that I am very insightful.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I LOVE MUSIC..all kinds. I can go to classical concert and then go hear jazz. I can sing and blend my voice with a good male voice. I like classical guitar and folk music and new age and good rock and blues. I even like some current music. BOOKS: The short story book, The Interpreter of Maladies, is so well written. I like different books, such as Reading Lolita in Teheran or The Gifted Adult or The Book of Qualities but will read your favorite book. I reread The Scarlet Letter and it really is a classic. Emily Dickinson's poetry is wonderfully to the point. I like some obscure movies: Made in Heaven, Grey Owl, Lost in Austen and the better known films: Shaw Shank Redemption, The Piano, Sleepless in Seattle, Anna and the King, Good Will Hunting and many more..love romantic comedies as well. And food...organic strawberries, yum, and good chocolate, yum, and many fruits and veggies...so many wonderful tastes in food...I eat pretty healthy.
Six things I could never do without
The ability to give love and to receive love. Empathy which is important in understanding. My daughter who has a golden heart. Good long term friends. Pen and paper for writing. Inner peace.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am a deep thinker. These days I think about cranial sacral body work which I practice. It is the most powerful body work I have yet found and I am grateful to have had many wonderful experiences with it. If you have not heard of Cranial Sacral, it has a very good reputation for its effectiveness. I also think & reflect on how humanity needs to do better...with the Earth and her resources and to learn how to be co-creative globally. I also reflect on what inner peace is. And I think about building a new life and the excitement I feel in thinking about new adventures and new people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Music events, the theater, dancing, a movie or a quiet dinner out are all nice activities to enjoy with good company on a Friday night. Cozy at home is good too with music or a well done movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 21 years old I had a VW bus and I rebuilt the engine by reading a book called The Idiot's Manual to VW Repair. My friends will vouch for me that I did rebuild an engine and it worked great. And I am such a feminine woman! And I was a daring 21 year old who did not have money to pay someone else to repair the engine!
