I crave someone who wants to hang out, get to know each other. My kids are old enough to be self-sufficient and I really love being able to focus more on me (which is an awesome stage...finally woo-hoo!). Plus in the work I do its pretty exhausting. I work as an advocate at a Sexual and Domestic Violence Non-Profit. I work with survivors at a shelter, crisis line, going to the ER, going to Court, visiting Jails. Its hard work and extremely fulfilling. When I get home I want to relax, play, dance, sing, smoke a cigarette on my porch with an amazing cup of coffee and share in some fascinating dialogue.

Food: I love to cook and love to eat. Spent time in the South (special place in my heart for Southern cookin') I love to explore and try new styles all the time. I make recipes from scratch. My cooking is like my painting. I approach the canvas and the cuisine by allowing it to tell me what it will become. I rarely follow recipes, if I do I only use it as a reference point and the meal grows beyond the recipe given.
