My self-summary
Blamed, framed and shamed.....a sweet hearted soul who was woefully wronged but finally out of the bad relationship that lasted far too long and went nowhere. At this time, I am focusing on moving forward in a positive way. I don't really feel an urgency to date yet, as I'm really enjoying some "me" time....but it would be fun to have a friend to enjoy summer's activities with on Martha's Vineyard. The summer is already flying by!


The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's welcome
and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread.
Give back to your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

-- Derek Walcott


TRUST….is one of the most beautiful things in the world, and it's amazing how we never notice how we use it so naturally until it's either lost or broken, or abused. And when Trust is broken, it's very hard to build it again -- but it can be built. And sometimes the mistake is if your Trust is betrayed, the mistake is to hang on to the regret of it….and to become bitter. In that way, YOU are completely defeated. Because only those who become bitter are truly defeated.

So this is a Blessing for broken Trust:

Sometimes there is an invisible Raven that will fly low to pierce the shell of Trust, when it has been brought near to ground. When he strikes, he breaks the Faith of years that had built quietly through the seasons in the rhythm of tried and tested experience. With one strike the shelter is down and the black yolk of Truth turned False would poison the garden of Memory.

Now the heart's dream turns to Requiem, offering itself a poultice of tears to cleanse from loss what cannot be lost. Through all the raw and awkward days, Dignity will hold the heart to Grace, lest it squander it's dream on a ghost.

Often, torn ground is ideal for seed that can root disappointment deep enough to yield a harvest that cannot whither, a deeper Light to anoint the eyes, Passion that opens wings in the heart, a subtle radiance of countenance, the Soul ready for it's True Other.

--Father John O'Donohue
What I’m doing with my life
I'm very busy in the summer, I work 5 jobs! I really don't recall what "fun" is. I still find time to do a few things that bring me deep joy and peace: I swim in the ocean every morning, meditate for an hour or so, and do Yoga. I'm hoping to take my Yoga Teacher Training this Fall. I'm an active, athletic woman....I like to swim, hike, bike, rollerblade, kayak, sail, horseback riding, etc. It woud be really nice to have someone to do those things with.
I’m really good at
Keeping it together when things get busy. I'm pretty organized. I seem to think more clearly when multi-tasking. My days and nights are very structured. I like to stick to a routine. I can get a lot done, juggle a lot of things. I'm looking for a friend who would kind of be the opposite to that...a good sense of humor, easy-going, laid back, impulsive, knows how to have fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big aqua blue-green eyes that are very expressive and genuine, warm smile, bright spirit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading! Topics? Mostly new age stuff...self help...spirituality...wisdom....culture....nature...anything to do with Hawaii or Scotland....historical romance. I like REALLY GOOD movies or it's not worth going at all...I don't like violence (I peek through my fingers)....I also like kids movies and have been known to "borrow" a friend's kids just so I can go see a silly movie! Music, I enjoy just about everything....I prefer Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Celtic and New Age. I LOVE to dance! I am Healthy Vegetarian, and I am an excellent and creative cook. I make my own Cacao Truffles! No sugar!
Six things I could never do without
Ocean, Sun, love, freedom, chocolate, yoga
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my life is going and where I'm meant to be and how I can leave my footprint on this world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exhausted. But sometimes up for the local Community Yoga Class....then a nice bath in my claw foot tub with a cup of herb tea and early to bed with a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't stand guys who think with their Pr*cks. So if you are one, keep moving on......
You should message me if
You are the kind of guy who can gently respect a woman who needs to learn how to trust again and needs a friendship with you first. No lies, cheats, players please!
The two of us
