My self-summary
The best way for me to describe myself is, eclectic. I am an open, honest, non-game playing, down to earth woman who loves life. I am open to experiencing as much of the good, interesting, mind and soul expanding experiences as I possibly can. Hence, my interests in so many different cultures, music, etc. I don't like to be placed in a box or a category. Life is too rich and expansive to be limited. I can't stand to stagnate, and evolving emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually is my lifeline. Therefore I surround myself with friends and experiences that do just that. All my meaningful relationships (friendships are of course included) are authentic and intimate (I'm talking emotional intimacy). Good luck to all of you out there, no matter who or what you are searching for.
I’m really good at
Empowering others. It brings me joy to give joy and acceptance to others.
The first things people usually notice about me
comfortable to be around
my laughter
my warmth
my zest for life

Once in awhile American is fine, but it's not my favorite. (Okay...I am truly eclectic!)
The six things I could never do without

music and dance
beauty (includes nature and art)
freedom/choices/self - expression
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I'm enjoying my retirement from teaching, and now pursuing my other projects and interests.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hmmm...I am not typical, so there is no typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That is only for the one closest and intimate with me~~~
You should message me if
You are interested in more than just a "hook -up", or casual dating. I'm not into that.
