Laughter, love and an outrageous sense of humor are a MUST in creating joy in my life, in your life, and the lives of others. Make me laugh and laugh again and l am puddy in your hands. I have been a social justice/civil rights lawyer my entire legal career and I really dig being in the courtroom. I try to contribute to the planet rather than take; try to make the world more just, more fair. These and other lofty, unattainable ideals - attending to the down-trodden-define how I stand in the world. Prayer for humility is central to me and, consequently, I get lots of opportunities to become more humble; more right-sized. More pain, more growth, more humility. Honesty and authenticity are key too. I enjoy and nourish a rich sprititual life. My teachers/mentors include, Gandhi, Dr. MLK, Elie Wisel, Rabbi Kushner, Chief Seattle, my daughter, and my grandmother who came over from Russia in the middle of the night on a boat with her parents, who spoke no English, to escape the pogroms. I used to resuce abused and abandoned horses and currently own and teach from our two beautiful Spanish Mustangs that are in my backyard whinnying right now for me to come and play. Our dog, a rescue border collie/aussie shepard mix is an essential part of our family too. My daughter is the best thing about me. No doubt about it. We have a wonderful, peaceful, harmonious, non-dramatic, joyful life; live in a beautiful place; enjoy being part of our community; and, always always have fun!! Come and ride through the woods and desert with me and you too can experience the magic. However, if you are one of those guys that needs drama and trauma, a woman to treat you badly, play mind games, break-up with you every few weeks, and withhold truth - honey, for sure, I'm not your girl. If that's your thing, have at it. But please, pray tell, do call on someone else. Graci! I am someone who is looking for the real deal and will not settle for mediocrity. NO NARCISISTS PLEASE!!!
