My self-summary
I am happy to be at this point in my life. I'm content, confident and enjoy being a life long learner. My children who live in Oregon, Staten Island and England are very important to me and luckily I'm important to them as well. I'm an optimist and can usually find the positive in a situation. I don't feel the need to judge and place blame. I won't spend time with negative people if I can help it. I care about the planet and the people on it.
What I’m doing with my life
I've had a very rewarding career in veterans services, youth development and restorative justice In New York (upstate) and Vermont. I've retired twice and now have a job that is low stress high reward and I love going to work. I moved to Portland to be closer to my son and enjoy the city he loves.
I’m really good at
Finding the positive in just about any situation, writing, loving my children and friends whether close by or far away, being content.
The first things people usually notice about me
My calm, easy going, accepting personality - except when it comes to Donald trump.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
7 Habits of Highly Effective People, writings by Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Napoleon Hill and currently enjoying Dr. Daniel Amen's works. I also enjoy nonfiction by David Baldacci, John Grishim, Dan Brown, Janet Evanovich, etc. Can't say that I have a favorite movie -- enjoy a wide variety (no longer enjoy scary movies). I often plug into news and commentary (not Fox News), enjoy NCIS, the Daily Show, Elementary, This is Us. Many types of music. My mother was very involved with folk music while I was growing up, enjoyed that, still enjoy 60s and 70s music, Norah Jones, Rod Stewart, Beatles, Adele, Willie Nelson, Neil Diamond, and variety of newer artists. I am trying to be more adventurous with my eating and make healthier choices.
