My self-summary

I enjoy my work. Amicable divorce. Comfortable in my own skin. Snarky as fuck! Intelligence in high heels! Wait, I meant I prefer that. Adventurous. Risk taker. Love to travel. Local, not big box. Good friend. Comfortable in blue jeans or suit. I usually mix the two.
What I’m doing with my life
Discovering what it means to be living it vs. just surviving it.

Traveling to cool places when I can. This past year it was East coast twice, Dallas, Hawaii, England and Scotland.
I’m really good at
Communicating. - and getting better at it.

Being a good friend. - I care for those I'm close to.

Over thinking stuff.

Hiking.

Cooking.

Delegating. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
That's a great question. I'm not sure. Maybe it's that I have a kind heart, but it's doubtful they're not that notice that before having a chance to see how I interact with everyone I encounter and how I treat my friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Joss Whedon, Weeds, Californication, True Blood, Breaking Bad, OITNB - first season at least, The Newsroom. Need to see Fargo the series and Walking Dead.

I prefer films to movies. If you get the difference, we'll get along.

Dan Savage!

Music is really all over the board. 80's and 90's alt. Some classic rock. Swing. I also love classical, mostly Baroque. Otis Redding, Louis Armstrong's La Vie en Rose or anything by Cole Porter!

I mostly read non-fiction, trade journals, self improvement, business theory. Ethical Slut, Opening Up and workshops on relationship stuff. I've recently read some Bill Bryson. I like his style. The Walk in the Woods movie trailer was bit disappointing. I'm catching up with my John LeCarre'. Love a good plot twist. I just started an autobiography of Akira Kurosawa. A fascinating story teller!

Food:
Portland has some great options. I'm a whiskey drinker and if a place makes a good boulevardier, it's a safe bet the menu is fabulous! I just moved into a new neighborhood and so far have discovered The Pope House, 23 Hoyt, and a couple of other gems within walking distance.
The six things I could never do without
My kids.
The Internet and social media.
Core group of friends.
Open minded, progressive thinking.
Wit, humor, banter, intelligent conversation.
Travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This!
and This!

I'm not done with you England. I need to be back inside you.

Our core beliefs and their relationship with neural pathways.

Sex, intimacy, and relationship dynamics. Those almost hidden qualities that make up intense, undeniable physical chemistry.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really identify with typical anything, including Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to over think and get up in my head about certain things. It's something I'm noticing more and working on.
You should message me if
You're positive and see the best in people.

You're looking for a relationship to start slow and see where it goes.

You don't come with the expectation that all of our time should be spent with each other.

You think outside the box, are adventurous and open to new experiences.

If you're a modern day Hedy Lamarr!
