I am the proud mother of an incredible 18 yr. old son and one really cool dog. We have enormous fun together and laugh alot (yep, the dog laughs too). I am also completing a doctorate in the field of moral reasoning. My favorite activities are snowboarding (I am a former Midwest champ in my age group. You might say I had no competition - literally . . no other woman in my age group in any race for the entire season. . I like this sport! . . might take up log rolling next - because I heard I could clean up there too), rock-climbing, windsurfing, rollerblading, bicycling, running, and, above all, spending time with Morty (aka Sporty Morty - aforementioned dog) at the beach! I like to go on long hikes in intriguing places - Nepal is my favorite so far, but there are also many amazing areas here in New Mexico. I like to explore "uncharted" territory - at least uncharted by me - and to "see what happens" rather than follow a prearranged plan. I truly feel that life can be an adventure, whether in the Himalayas or in your own hometown.
