I have a wonderful capacity to be happy with simple things: a great meal, a ripe mango, an hour in the farmer’s market, a walk in the redwoods, a swim in a river, November light. I am sassy and spontaneous, although direct (my New York influence?), yet I prefer clarity to ambiguity. I'm usually at ease with the contradictions. I'm passionate about the things that excite and ignite me, whether it's a new friend, new ideas or conversations about a moving film.
I’m just a few years (or less) from retiring. I’d like to move to a small house in the country with a garden and a wood-burning stove. I'd also like to buy a one-way ticket to Asia and fulfill the dream of doing volunteer work in Cambodia, going on retreat in India, and visiting or working at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand. Mostly I look forward to not planning anything and seeing what evolves.

I love to eat almost all healthy food made of high quality ingredients: Thai, Japanese, Indian, huge salads, nuts and green drinks to start the day
Redwood forests and beaches with rock formations and coves
Silence, and quiet time
Fresh healthy food
My journal and smooth quick pen
Friends who know and understand me
when and where I might meet a wonderful man for an intimate relationship
