I love dogs but don't live with one.
Like living with others (I live in a house with 4 others)
I feel awed and at times overwhelmed, living at this time on the planet.
I love being with people and I love being alone. I need both.
done for now...
I belong to an interesting and caring circle of friends. Actually a few circles that overlap and intertwine. I belong to a mixed gender book group thats lively and engaging.
I'm in a small circle of women who meet to encourage and support one another, as well as put vital and compassionate energy into social and environmental issues.
I'm an ordained ceremonialist, perfoming weddings, baby blessings, coming of age ceremonies, divorce/releasing of vows ceremonies, etc. I also see clients for counseling/life coaching. I lead women's circles that honor ceremony, our connection to Nature, and the unique gifts that come with being a woman.
I care deeply about the well being of children in our culture. I help guide parents, formally and informally, in staying connected to their children, and being conscious, kind parents.
I continue to cultivate my inner life through prayer, meditation, reading, awareness, and the cultivation of compassion for myself and others.
I'm learning to take better care of myself. I've tended to focus on the well being of others at the expense of myself. That's changing.
Doing Qigong 2-3 times a week. Swimming.

This friday night for example, my sister and I will be staying at a cabin on the russian river, doing who knows what.

you're interested in listening, as well as talking about yourself
you're humble and wise enough to be inclusive of differences among peoples of the world.
you see yourself as young at heart and not old.
