San Diego

I live on the east coast with my joy and love, my greatest earthly blessing... My child. My family and friends are scattered across this beautiful planet, they are the world to me. I love to travel, dance, yoga, take photographs, and sing in my car. I live to love, love to live. I am a spiritual nomad; being out in nature is where I find peace...here lies my temple. I work hard and play exuberantly.

Me in a large nutshell: Joy of being... impassioned by the complexities of this beautiful existence...laughing & smiling…i suffer…i am resilient…grateful...blessed...Tears, the pearls of my heart, mind, spirit, and soul are treasured and set free.

On a mountain I sit among the trees with my eyes wide shut, I am stimulated by the sound of an invisible river descending. Though I cannot see it entirely I know it is heading my way, pulled by credence it twists and turns up and around substance and matter. Like a million soft winged birds in flight, or a dragon through the darkness… I am caught within its wake. Natures dress is turned up by this unseen force. Leaves shimmer a song in my ears all the while this wind-river dances around my body and through my hair. A vision of lying on the seashore enveloped by the oceans waves, I am tumbling in an ecstasy of energetic fervor. I open my minds eye … I see you standing before me, your eyes in many shades of grey, smiling. ~A 2006 (midnight hike, Boulder, CO1996)*

I live for:... the journey, siting on a beach at night, a mountain's wind-river, a clear night sky, full moon's blue veil, the aurora borealis, celestial events, rising and setting of the sun, spring's floral glory, summer's sultry heat, autumn nights and bonfires, live music, vinyl grooves, the radio, city synergy, getting lost in the 'wilderness' to find a new way home.....
