My self-summary
When you look at me, what do you see? Perhaps you see a smile, a twinkle in my eyes, color, books, and I'm told a demeanor that says "talk to me...come to me...let's talk and connect." I love life. In a picture of me at the age of 5 which I recently found in my mother's album, I was hugging my little friend, had my arm around her and was clearly a happy child who enjoyed hugging. I haven't changed. Yes...I'm now several decades older. Ha! But inside, I'm still that happy person, hugging life.

I am what I love: music, music, music; good food & wine, traveling, cuddling, cooking, holding hands, kissing the man I adore, going to concerts, the movies, and the opera; listening to a variety of music ranging from Cold Play to Beethoven; reading poetry and history; going to a spa or staying home in my PJs all day doing nothing specific. I also love my grandchildren and am thrilled that they are so busy with their lives I have to make a "play date" in advance to make sure I catch them; I love playing board games with the kids sprawled on the floor. I'm retired from a variety of professional activities, having served organizations for over 20 years as leader and servant. I now enjoy my work having a private practice as a Relationship Coach, having conversations with people about how they can love the life they are living by having relationships they love

Long ago, after I had survived cancer, I promised myself that I would live the rest of my life with the clear intention of loving everything I do. If I didn't like my work, I would either change my job or change my attitude about the job. for the past 30 years, I have kept that promise: I love everything I do and do everything I love.

I have a very full and busy life. I've been a widow for 11 years and although single life has been an adventure, I would much rather share life with a special partner. Are you a man who will capture my heart and my attention to the point I will be inspired to be with you exclusively? That remains to be seen.

I love to be in the company of a special man, enjoy a satisfying sexual partnership, being friends and lovers -- I enjoyed being married and find partnership satisfying. Although I've discovered that being a widow and single isn't terrible, being in a loving relationship would be delicious. Of course there are no guarantees in life, so I'm willing to take a calculated risk in meeting YOU.
What I’m doing with my life
Constantly learning new things, having fun, meeting new people and nurturing old friendships, enjoying family and friends, being of service to others, creating and playing
I’m really good at
Listening, loving, learning. I'm really good at smiling at life and hugging life... I love to cook and am really good at it. Since I've made a good living for over 30 years as a singer, I would guess that I'm really good at singing. I throw really good dinner parties. I give excellent foot massages.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people comment on my smile and my high energy, although it is "serene." I'm not frenetic, just enthusiastic and joyful. People tell me they like being around me because I'm positive and upbeat, easy to talk to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many and too much to list here. I've lived my life as a singer surrounded by many kinds of music, especially classical. I love opera -- many kinds of opera. I have thousands of books in my office and home, floor to ceiling bookcases everywhere. I love to cook many kinds of food and enjoy a variety of different kinds of restaurants. I'm a regular movie-goer... love love love the movies. I go to NYC to theatre and concerts whenever possible. If/when we meet, you can take a look at my library and get a sense of what I read. Lots of spiritual wisdom like Neale Donald Walsch and Eckert Tolle, like mystical Judaism and Tibetan Buddhism. I love the poetry of John O'Donohue and Mary Oliver.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next book I can write, project I can create, program I can facilitate. The next person I will meet who will captivate my imagination and even grab my heart. Meeting someone I love to cuddle with, kiss, and share fun activities with.
On a typical Friday night I am
No Friday night is typical anything for me...It's always some kind of adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've got a very colorful -- and even shocking -- past...
