My self-summary
What is there to say that hasn't already been said? I'm fabulous! Isn't everyone? Walk on the beach? Sure. Likes to have fun? Duh. Classy? Yes and no. Confident? Yes. Not so pleasant when I'm not so pleasant? Sure, guilty as charged. We can't all be that amazing special someone that is described in these zany pararaphs. Cut to the chase: I'm a simple gal, with a complicated brain. I'm conversational and active, spiritual and adventurous. My passport is current and my shots are up to date, so anywhere you wanna go is up for grabs. My hippie camper is in it's full glory, after all it's summer in Minnesota. I have power tools and know how to use them. I have gourmet tastes with a simple twist. I enjoy a good life and am happy. I care about the earth. I'm given to moon dances and star gazing. I dig being in nature most, but truly do enjoy a fascinating movie, theater experience or a night out listening to music. I'm charmed by a great smile. I melt when you touch me softly ~
What I’m doing with my life
Taking care of me, which took some time to learn how to do. I have lots of things that keep me busy, much to my dismay sometimes. I run a small, yet efficient, nimble, effective agency. I have a consulting firm. I'm a great Auntie, a good friend. I travel, I bike, I hike, I practice yoga, and meditate. I don't do much without music in the background. I engage in my friendships and contribute in ways I believe make a difference.
I’m really good at
Traveling, cooking, being out and about, not to be seen, but to see. I'm a lovely listener. I'm a dear friend, I'm a trusted colleague. I enjoy spiritual endeavors a lot and dabble in all the oracles and traditions.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically: My smile, my hair, and if your a leg man, my gams. Intellectually: my smarts and ability to carry on a lovely and spirited conversation. Socially: my commitment to social justice and willingness to seek change. Spiritually: my authenticity, genuiness, kind demeanor and engagement in eye contact.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: after all these years, Interview the Vampire remains my favorite sit-down-and-read-it-from-cover-to-cover-and-not-move-from-the-hammock book. On the non-fiction side: Woodman, Hillman, Bly, Rumi, Perry Brass, Eckart Tolle, ya know, the usual Jungian subjects. Movies: Let's just say I'm a flick freak. Shows: Broadway? 'Into the Woods' always stands out. I'm on a local nonprofit board for one of the theaters in town and live theater is important in my life. Music: YES, YES and more YES. Just keep that techno, violent rap and the are-you-kidding-me-disco-really? far from my ears and we'll get along just fine. Lucinda, Mercedes Sosa, Lyle Lovett, Townes VanZant, oh the list could be endless here. I also dig 60's and 70's rock and roll. Led Zep still makes me dance every time. Pink Floyd Meddle is one of my all time favorite albums. My friend made me a copy of his recording of the Masai people singing and playing music with their hands when he visited Africa ~ it's one of the most intimate and lovely gifts I've ever received. Dance me a tango and I promise you'll be astonished at my delight. Heck, dance me a polka, just dance me. Food: Gourment done simply. Organic and healthy. Watermelons have seeds in my world. Let's go to the farmers market early Saturday morning and pick out the best we can find ~~
The six things I could never do without
Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, my power tools, music, art, nephews - that's 9, but there's a whole bunch more... mostly love, love, love and stars and water and mountains and my passport and poetry and love. The rest I can do without ~ maybe. Well, my bike, my RV, and this lamp, that's all I need.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That night in Nepal. The wine in Mendoza, Argentina. Breath. The silence at Wounded Knee. Balance. How to say it. When to say it. Presence. Owls. Where to find seeded watermelon. Yellowstone. Tibet. What's for supper. What's for breakfast. Why active boys get labeled ADHD.
On a typical Friday night I am
Tired but willing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Seriously?
You should message me if
you're ready ~
