More about me

The one thing I am passionate about...

Living, loving, grandchildren, children, art, education, writing, longevity, swimming, dancing, painting, gardening, nature, dogs, birds, the life of the mind!

I typically spend my leisure time

I like to watch the birds at my feeders, turn them into paintings and tell stories. I like to make children happy and inspire them to be better. I inspire them best by making art and by teaching them to read and write.

The most influential person in my life has been

We all hope for and expect honesty; that's a starting place. However, a pure heart, a focused mind, altruistic goals, along with healthy self-respect, are primary. I get along well with other creative people because we have flexible minds and are able to improvise solutions. Myers-Briggs personalities with high scores in intuition and emotional feeling are attractive. I also like extroverts and people who aren't judgmental. People interested in truly sharing power are inspirational. I'm not a religious fundamentalist, if that's what you want. I'm an open, loving artist.

The first thing people notice about me

My smile, the compassion and depth in my eyes, my positive outlook, my sense of humor, and my listening skills are probably standouts, but men see things I probably don't notice the way a man would. Hey, I'm honest.

The last book I read and enjoyed

Coleman Barks' translations of Rumi. Rumi's my favorite mystical writer because of his concrete adherence to specific metaphors, like that of the "heart donkey." His work sounds very much like that of a small town writer because of his insistence on using the common materials in his environment to communicate his thoughts and feelings, which readers easily decipher, due to his commitment to them. Similarly, Virgil has the same grounded sense of place. I have that, too. I also like St. John of the Cross, another mystic poet. I also teach Jungian, Freudian, and Marxist literary criticism for a local college.

The three things which I am most thankful for

  1. My life!
  2. My daughters, gradchildren, and my best friends!
  3. Everything I've been given, my gifts, my peace of mind.

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me

My interest in philosophy, science, prose and poetry. I'm often formal when first meeting people but I open up my heart easily to people who have my trust.

Friends Describe me as

Caring, Creative, Genuine, Happy

A little more about me

I am an abstract thinker, left-handed, right-brained, politically left of center, having been raised in the German- Lutheran tradition of the Midwest. I am grounded as a teacher and mother, principled by idealism and a strong sense of what is right and wrong, and really not looking for someone who is incapable at this stage of the game of being fully committed and completely honest. I like a big smile, an honest and open heart, a man who enjoys laughing every day and knows how to appreciate a zany, dancing imagination . I would be happy most anywhere, but I don't see myself selling my house and studio.
