The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about loving, learning, the joy and freedom children express; about beauty, intimacy, appreciating the subtleties in life; about being effective, making a difference, small or large (as in an organization for service, or bringing a smile to the face of another). I am passionate about companionship, laughter, good friends, with whom I have a history; a good glass of Syrah or the peppery taste of arugula; about being healthy, in body, mind and spirit; and about love!
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending time with good friends, listening to NPR, exploring new places, listening to music. I enjoy spending lazy afternoons, with totally unstructured time...to find out where the day takes me!
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a man who is loving, has a quality sense of humor, is intelligent and responsible. ..Also, someone who embodies the spirit of Apollo!
The first thing people notice about me
People may notice that I love to laugh (although I can often be serious), that I am a good listener, and that I am a generous person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Getting to Yes. A book by Harvard law professors on negotiating agreement. It explains how to look for underlying interests that are common, rather than getting hung up on positions and standings. Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel... with my kindergartners! Brilliantly simple.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Sharing laughter
- Good friends and family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Perhaps my sense of adventure! I may come off as cautious or shy, initially.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am looking for someone to share this life with, as true companions, and to love, honor, (and adore) one another through it!
