My self-summary
My sneakers are sitting next to the front door ready for me, I love heading out the door, taking long breezy walks doing rapid scissor cuts wearing my ear-eye pod. I’d like to invite you to join me for a walk, how about walking up and down and around the rocky cliffy terrain in Torrey Pines Park over looking the shimmering sea? I’m nearly never bored, so many things interest me, take my hand and lets go savor yummy food together, also feed our senses with art, design and music. Are you like me where you enter a book store and feel excited like a small child? How about if we each get a pile of books and sit cozily together and read? Seeking a lovable boyish guy to cherish and shower with affection, to be my best pal.

We're so new to Portland - been here only a month, and I'm eager to explore every which way. What a great place - I feel like I've come home, and it was unexpected. We had lived for a year in rinky dink Reno, NV because my son had been accepted into this school for the profoundly gifted located on the UNR campus, but he didn't like the school, and since it was the only impetus for our move to Reno, I put on my thinking cap as to where to move. I came up with this international baccalaureate program for the highly gifted in this public school in Bellevue, WA. We took the long drive there and didn't like the sterile affluent community, and so on the way home I said let's check out Portland as we looked at several graphic overlapping bridges, my son was annoyed because he'd had it with travel and eager to get home, but I said we're right here - just for about an hour. We drove in and I parked and got out and Wow! I had such a positive vibe - here was a city with beautiful architecture, lush green parks, fun designed shops, many people who looked so cool, a very appealing place and it felt like me. Pretty recently I'd read a superb book "Who's Your City?" by Richard Florida, which was so helpful, and I felt like I'd stumbled into my city - my son was irritated when I said we have to stay a while (we checked into a motel and stayed for 24 hours) and then poked around. I went home and did my research and then while my son was in a summer program at UC Berkley, came up for 12 days and found our new home, cool deal.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a creative Mom
I have an Airbnb
I’m really good at
Knowing what my feelings are, being self-aware. Seeing patterns and possibilities. Superb at research and honing into the best quality of all kinds of things. Very perceptive. Being resilient and adaptable. Being an individual thinker and being comfortable in my own skin. Being funny with a sense of the absurd. Visual and aesthetic. Attachment Parenting and having a harmonious relationship with my sweet natured and most lovable son.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure, maybe that I'm enthusiastic; I just asked my 18 year old son and he said "Your wit, you're unique".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books for me is like a crowded airport runway with jets on line waiting for take off, piles waiting to be read.

I'm a foodie, love gourmet buffets, if stuck on island and could have only 1 food: ice-cream
Six things I could never do without
My son
My animal companions
My rich spectrum of feelings
A sense of wonder, possibilities and learning things
My senses and all the arts and savoring delicious food

and Trader Joes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing this or that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm somewhat shy or in certain situations, such as on a first date I can feel a bit nervous and self-conscious, especially if I'm quite interested in the guy.

Any Man who has as an age requirement range ending at younger than His Age, even if it includes My Age, I will use the feature to Hide his Profile as this just rubs me the wrong way.

It's not private at all but within this space I'll add that I'm an INFP.
You should message me if
If I seem like someone who could appeal to you.
The two of us
