Just the other day while sipping my latté in a local café, I overheard a man say “I'd like to find a heart, mind, soul connection in which we cherish our moments together, but also appreciate the spaces in-between." Sounds lovely to me. How about you? So here I am looking for a "romantic friend" (for starters)—a man who wants to play and explore with me, travel to places here and there, introduce me to his friends and kids (if he has any), be foolish and smart, and sometimes just hang out with me.
I’m curious about most everything—people’s stories, politics, the news of the day—youthful, colorful, sensual, visual, sometimes brave n' bold, an evolved soul, so I've been told. Anyway...I try my best to be emotionally present and tune in to nuances in nature, language, the rhythms of the body, the heart.
After spending 25+ years working for a Berkeley-based public policy consulting firm, I'm now a self-employed editor/writer for various national organizations (and loving it!), with a focus on postsecondary education and the labor force. No “job” has been as joyful and challenging, though, as raising my three sons (now adults), sometimes solo.
Among other pleasures, I enjoy film, reading/writing fiction, exploring the Bay Area’s peaks and valleys, political satire, CAL Performances, Berkeley Rep. I love New York always—not just in June—jazz, Broadway shows, a Gershwin tune. I’m drawn to the north coast when the rain is hard, the ocean, wild, crossing the International Date Line, discovering distant lands, cultures, treasures.
Strike a chord? If so, I'd like to hear from you!
