I have just moved to Petaluma. I was in San Francisco for the last 3 years. I am so glad to be back in Sonoma County, enjoying a peaceful life.
A little about me.....I love laughter, an easy going flow to life, fun and hanging out with family and friends, and helping others. Spending time in nature is important to me and essential for my well-being. Whether it be a long walk, a gentle hike, kayaking, or a picnic on the beach, or perhaps a long drive in a beautiful place. I am spiritually eclectic, and grow up in the Jewish tradition which I still embrace. I'm very grateful for this beautiful life. In a partner I appreciate warmth, affection, expression of thoughts and feelings, laughter and ease. I am looking for a beloved companion, an explorer of the inner and outer world. Also, I'm an east coaster. Grew up in New Jersey, worked in NYC. A Jersey girl. That has softened after living in Vermont for 12 years, raising my kids, and then moving to CA in 2002.
I have two children, ages 37 and 33 and a 2 year-old grandson. I'm very close with both of my children. We have loving and fun, relaxed, open relationships. In general, I love all kids and am devoted to family and would welcome yours.
I teach ESL (English as a Second Language) to adult immigrants, a relatively 'new' career for me. I love it! I've been a very creative educator for a long time, and have a Masters degree in Education. My prior career was as a professional, classical dancer and Professor of Dance. I've also worked as an administrative analyst in higher education and enjoy my analytical side as well. My skills and talents are diverse and I've been blessed with work that I love. I become very inspired and involved in my work, and so when I come home I really need to unplug.
Well, I think that's enough for now. If we meet perhaps we'll have time to discover all of the wonderful life stories there are to tell. I would enjoy discovering new friends, companions and with some luck a long-term relationship.
I wish you all the best in your search for love.
Movies - I love comedies, the old movies as well. Other genres too, but not horror or excessive blood and guts. But I must admit, I loved Breaking Bad.
Music - very eclectic taste. 60's-80's rock, light jazz, R&B, international and ethnic
my children, family and friends
a conscious life and trust of intuition
the beauty of nature
the ease of sincere, heartfelt conversation
all things beautiful, including my home, the arts…. music, dance, etc
And..... Where is he?
