What comes to mind first to say about myself is that I love my job. After 17 years with a big law firm, I went out on my own in a new practice area for a couple of years, and then last summer took a job in the public sector. I feel a good bit of stress as I stay on the learning curve, but I enjoy every aspect of my work now. What a great feeling to be happy to get up and go to work; how much fun it is to tell stories of the interesting things that happen every day! I am happier than I have ever been in my life. I am still going through changes as I embark on this new era of my life: my job,my marital status, my daughters off to college, and - soon- a new home. I would enjoy talking about work, play, families, friends, current events, books, movies, travel, sharing quick humor, and learning new things. I am a good listener, insightful, articulate, and direct -- and I would enjoy chatting if you are a good listener, insightful, articulate, and direct as well!!
