My self-summary
I feel very blessed to have had a wide variety of experiences in my life. Originally from the Midwest, I have lived most of my adult life on the East Coast - with the bulk of that in beautiful Brooklyn. For the last 8 years, I have lived on the edge of the Southern Berkshires. I love it here - and am glad it's an easy trip into NYC as well.

My work life has also offered a breadth of experiences. I spent the first 20 years of my career in the glamorous ad biz (Account Management on car accounts), achieving a decent level of success. As my spiritual life grew and I dealt with my late husband's illness and subsequent death in 2001, that road felt far too soul-sucking - for lack of a better term - so I left it for more fulfilling work. The specifics of that "Other" answer in the job category is that today I am a healer, spiritual counselor, and chaplain.

Travel has become a passion of mine in the last decade or so. One of the items on my "bucket list" is to set foot on all 7 continents; just returned from Africa which was #6. No surprise, Antarctica is the one I have left but one that I really am looking forward to. Many other destinations await as well. I would love to find a fellow adventurer to explore with - or even just put my toes in the sand with.

Other things you might want to know: 1) Interests of mine are theatre, writing, hiking, biking, laughing, hanging out with people I care about, reading poetry, among other things. 2) People are often astonished when they find out how old I am - either that or they are excellent actors. 3) I am open-minded, down-to-earth, liberal, and very grounded in - and involved with - the realities of living in this world in these times. 4) I'm told the most lovable thing about me is my quick smile / laugh. (I'll let you figure out the least lovable thing for yourself.)

What am I looking for in a relationship? Someone to share life with. A best friend. A lover. I am looking for a man who is considerate, intelligent, attractive, has a sense of humor, and takes the lead. He should be positive, open-minded and open-hearted. He should be happy with himself and his life, but also willing to grow. He needs to be willing to bring himself fully and honestly to a relationship. Ideally he loves both the city and the country. Please no party boys!
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it. Learning. Growing. Being of service whenever / however I can. Bottom line is my intention is to add more to this world than I take from it.
I’m really good at
Listening, finding humor in most situations, writing, my healing work
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh. Everyone who knows me can identify me by my laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Eclectic appreciation of culture. I generally have a stack of books that I am reading at the same time. Current stack includes How to Make Books, Leadership on the Line, Artist's Way, and A Course in Miracles. Not usually a huge fiction reader. Love live theater and good danceable tunes. I don't consider myself a major foodie but I do appreciate a really great meal; really great is beyond my abilities, so I'd love it if it's not beyond yours!
The six things I could never do without
Laughter, time in nature, friends, spiritual connection, my dogs - not necessarily in that order
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The insanity of our current political environment. How I can support people through challenging times. Where my next trip should be to. How a person without a full-time job or a family to care for can be as busy as I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no such thing as any typical night - or day - for me...and for that I am grateful
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a profile on OKC.
