My self-summary
I love spontaneity and synchronicity. I think I am a mermaid as I love to be in water. What makes my soul light up and makes me smile; kindness, dogs, kids, what i see through my camera, birds, flowers, ocean, music, movies (foreign), delicious food and wines, landing in foreign lands, feeling love, eye smiles, long bath tubs, fireplaces, photography/art, elders active in the world, integration of science and philosophy, old stones, travel, being with my friends, traveling to new lands.

I believe that truth, understanding, compassion, respect - good chocolate/red wine and fine tunes are the ingredients for a truly joyful existence. I prefer quality over quantity in almost any context. Exercise outdoors is my thing. I am not a major tv watcher but utilize netflix and my local independent video store.

I was raised in South Africa, studied and worked between Europe and US most of my adult life.

I am nurturing, feeling, compassionate, quick, and joyful.
What I’m doing with my life
Continually learning about integrative healing- teas, science of food, somatics, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Quantum Physics, luna solar twinning, neuro plasticity, human condition, faith, love, compassion, belief, art, perspective....its all so bloody fascinating.

I'm a muse on many levels and somehow have been able to integrate that archtype into my professional path always being led by curiosity and values. Strategy naturally comes, advisory services to many, making change, asking tough questions. In multiple sectors over 2 decades generally related to bettering the human and natural condition. Sustainability, healthcare and education seem to be the themes in USA, EU and developing markets and then a few art/technology fun things too!

Fun: Any travel, water related play (sail, swim, paddle), kids, gardening. Socializing with any culture or age group. Playing in nature, living it up in any style. Being a friend, giving to people and the world....

Continuing teaching myself guitar, growing the extent of a meager food garden and writing.
I’m really good at
Wow- humility?

I can knit a warm sweater and it looks pro ( have not made one in about 10 years), cook a great soup and other food groups. I have a gigantic music collection - so can make a mean playlist! I fold laundry perfectly if its still warm.

allergic to. Hot spicy is a challenge to my pallet. Prefer clean,
well prepped and organic or happily raised but if have to will eat
street food when on the road. I love to dine on white table cloths
or funkee eclectic dingy spots...its about the food, service and
atmosphere and memory.
Six things I could never do without
water (and teas), camera(s), body, magic carpet, laughter, music, lap top.......ummm more real huh?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
many a splendid thing...
On a typical Friday night I am
playing in some shape or form - sometimes its a calm night as the week is closing. Dinner for friends or dine out. A movie or music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
not for public consumption
You should message me if
you are available on many levels, kind, value truth and have a worldly appreciation, and are downright good human to know : )
