My self-summary
Staying open and learning are important values for me. Sometimes I trust a little more than I should, but I suppose it's better than the alternative.

While I'm naturally playful, I also have a reflective side and a sharp mind that require regular feeding. Quiet walks, time being still and nurturing touch all keep me balanced. I'm very affectionate and communicative and seek the same in my match - someone with depth who has the skills to build and maintain an intimate connection.
What I’m doing with my life
staying curious
enjoying the children in my life
remodeling my house
advocating for the disadvantaged
being grateful
getting out to hear live music/theater/lectures
asking the big questions
expanding my community
opening my mind and heart wider
teaching yoga/leading kirtans
I’m really good at
slowing down (a gift of getting a little older)
being fair / honoring your autonomy
remembering who directed which movie
mental stuff
puzzles and strategic board games (watch out!)
being me (authenticity is important)
finding the car keys
using my soft voice

putting away clean laundry (really good at sorting, though)

Relaxing after the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be a little geeky when it comes to my professional life ... and geeky can be sexy.
