The one thing I am passionate about...
Living life to the fullest. One of the dangers of living life to the fullest is having your heart wide open. There are times when I?m so filled and so moved that I just cry. A favorite saying is, ?Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the number of moments that take our breath away.? I am passionate that I should travel often, and be openhearted; as that allows me to meet people I might never have met and truly engage in dialogue and understanding. My travels to Middle East, Europe, Central America and within USA are treasured pieces of my being. I am passionate about laughter, love and finding my lover.
I typically spend my leisure time
Travel of course. A day off is always a treat with Bay cruise or winetasting. I've reclaimed my farmgirl roots and started a garden. Cooking is a love. Moreso is gathering interesting diverse people around my table and delving into a feast of food, wine and conversation. Walks with conversation another treat. Sunsets or Sunrises on my beach are always a treat. Writing. Live music, theater, sports is all good! Love to dance... looking for a partner!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Mary Oliver "New and Selected Poems" for a book; Huffington Post for a website
The three things which I am most thankful for
- a sense of wonder and whimsey that makes the cold hard realities of this world soft and warm.
- people I've met that have been willing to be real and vulnerable... enriches me!
- The blessing of my children, whom I call my prophets.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I believe my profession scares people away. I wish that was not so and people would get to know me for me and how I meet people where they are at. I want you to know my joy within, my spontaneity, my sensuality, and my zest for love. I come off as being so strong and self-sufficient; truth be told I love all the aspects of being a woman and look for that one man to partner with. I have a multitude of friends around the World. Many trust me, rely on me; and many are children who are dear to me. But, I still am searching for the one that will stand by my and partner in this amazing life in ways that are yet to unfold.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Creative, Good listener, Spiritual
A little more about me
I believe in nothing ventured, nothing gained. There is only so much one can learn in a profile. I believe there are so many dimensions to any one person. If my profile has inspired your curiosity, let me know. I love meeting people and I am fun to meet! Perhaps if there is something interesting, we will keep meeting and we can see where this might lead. Just like the California Lotto... "Gotta Play to Win!" Take a chance...And I am beginning to believe eHarmony is a scam so not sure how much longer I will be here. It seems no one looks at my profile so... throwing this line in to see if there is anyone out there.
