My self-summary
I'm a curious optimist, but not naive. Still believe that most people are mostly good. Love to laugh and to find something to enjoy in every day. Fulfilled my dream of being a mom through adoption years ago; now she's all grown up and this is my latest adventure. Creative - in the kitchen, with the pen and occasionally on canvas. Lifelong tomboy with a dash of sophistication. Still love to root for a favorite team (SF 49ers and NY Giants, SF Giants and Yankees), but these days my sporting joy is mostly in watching my five-year old great nephew and his team at flag football and t-ball. Lost my heart to NYC years ago as well as England and Italy. And miles to go before I sleep.

In a relationship, my goal is that both my partner and I will feel loved, secure, sexy and trusted.
What I’m doing with my life
I fundraise for a nonprofit that helps high risk children and teens. Also work directly with a few clients as a volunteer peer grief counselor and on a crisis response team.
I’m really good at
listening. It's a lost art, isn't it? Also, I am the family storyteller, so this talking and listening thing goes both ways. Laughing not only at my own jokes/observations, but at yours as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told I smile a lot. (Wait just a minute ... that might actually make me simple minded?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As a dedicated Harry Potter fan, just finished the JK Rowling book for grown-ups, "Casual Vacancy" - not an easy prospect. Recently discovered Jo Nesbo and his detective Harry Hole. As a devout Jane Austen fan had to read PD James' Death Comes to Pemberley. Ken Follett, John Irving, Amy Tan, and so much more. Editorials by Maureen Dowd, poetry - Pablo Neruda to Rumi, Mary Oliver to Billy Collins. Movies that make me think, laugh or both. Love theater and concerts (jazz, rock, country and classical). Movies? Enjoyed Hugo, The Artist, The Descendants and My Week with Marilyn, but also sat through "Chipwrecked" with a four- and a five-year old/ Among my all time favorites - Some Like it Hot, 12 Angry Men, Age of Innocence, Cinema Paradiso, Casablanca, Sense & Sensibility, Beautiful Mind ...
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family. Children's laughter. A paper and pen or PC keyboard. Music. An open road. Hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...if I'll ever finish writing my great American novel, or just finish a set of sonnets I've been working on for a while, and why I can't master the perfect pie crust.
On a typical Friday night I am
wondering what's a typical Friday night. It could be something quiet with friends, sometimes a work event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
would not be broadcast on line.
