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!
spelling, proofreading, talking and sometimes writing;
rationalizing bad behavior;
and taking naps.
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.
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 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
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.
