It's really strange. As I grow older (and I'd like to think wiser!) I find I am more enthusiastic about life than I have ever been. I enjoy the present moments more, more keenly aware that in this time zone I live most fully, joyfully and meaningfully. I can't change the past or predict the future but I do have some say as to how I live in this present moment. I am blessed with two sons and a daughter, each carving out a niche in their chosen fields, and each special in his or her own way. Myself, I love the arts, music, dance, photography, theater and I especially enjoy the outdoors (hiking, biking, beaches). I see play and laughter as essential ingredients in a relationship as well as mutual respect, the capacity to trust, be vulnerable and listen deeply. I enjoy wholesome, healthy food and regular exercise (swim, dance, and walk tons).
