My self-summary
I am absolutely delightful. Everybody thinks so.
What I’m doing with my life
Moving through it.

I am a Movement Educator and a personal and professional development coach. I teach dance, Pilates and Reiki and practice as a healer, coach, trainer, and consultant. I own a business involving all of the above.

I love movies, books, sleeping, my friends, music, traveling, great conversation, and great food. I don't get enough. I want more of those things in my life!
I’m really good at
wasting time;
spelling, proofreading, talking and sometimes writing;
rationalizing bad behavior;
teaching;
and taking naps.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am sweet. I am smart. I am driven. I am inspired. I am always needing to eat. I have big eyes. I use big words, but not on purpose - just because they mean what I am trying to say.

My favorite compliment I once got from a friend is, "I like you because you really know how to get on board with a rant." I don't have patience, however, for pointless negativity. You have to be going somewhere with it, and preferably be clever or at least funny, or you'll lose me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: I'm reading the Inspector Montalbano mysteries right now. I am known for constantly recommending books to my friends. If you know me long enough - or not long at all - I will start recommending books to you. Don't give me an inch on this because I will take 10 miles.

Movies: Donnie Darko. Being There. Harold and Maude. The Usual Suspects.

Music: I have kind of lost the plot with music lately. My faves are, like, Big Star, Cheap Trick, Buzzcocks, David Bowie, Prince, New Bomb Turks, Gaunt, and stuff like that. More to the point, RE: Music, is what I hate: The Grateful Dead, Phish, and the Dave Matthews Band. This is absolutely non-negotiable. It's best if you don't bring it up. Just please quietly do whatever you can to shield me from any exposure to these bands, ever, and you will win points with me.

Food: meatloaf, salad, garlic soup, Thai curries, brown rice, bourbon and ginger, grilled salmon or tuna - if it's super fresh, roasted broccoli. I could go on...

Ok I will: Red table wine, raisin toast, Snowville Creamery milk, homemade ice cream, scrambled eggs done right, my mom's vegetable soup, my mom's bean soup, my mom's cornbread, my mom's ribs, mujaddara, scallops, pastries from Cherbourg Bakery, caramelized onions, sweet potatoes with brown sugar and lots of butter, Coleman's BBQ from Senatobia, MS. Since you asked.

And to be absolutely clear about this: I am not a foodie or a music/media/pop culture geek. I just like what I like, and I like people who can use this info as a way of getting to know me and showing me a little bit of their own world.

EDIT: I forgot to mention gazpacho, cold pear soup and full-cream yogurt.
The six things I could never do without
possibility
the means to travel (aside from the obvious, this includes my feet, my car, my thoughts and my books.)
books (This might actually be the one thing I could not live without.)
other people whom I like
alone time
down time
up time
moving
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why so many people refuse to put anything compelling as "the most private thing I'm willing to admit."

It's not "the most private thing ever," it's just the most private thing *I'm willing to admit* which might, in fact, be not very private after all but could at least be interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late. If you want to see me in action, Saturday nights are better.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I sneeze, it's usually 5 times in a row.
