In her own words

Born and raised alongside the Pacific Ocean, educated in the States and England, and enjoying the Bay Area at the moment, I'm the daughter of immigrant professors who inculcated in me a love of learning, and an appreciation for nature and the arts. If you read this and something resonates, I welcome your communication. Please don't reach out based only on what you see in the pictures. These pictures reflect me between the ages of 36 and 39, but they can only express my physical attributes. I kindly ask that you base your communication on more than that. Spending much of my days in analytical and argumentative pursuits due to my profession, I turn to music to engage a different part of myself. My daughter, for whom I would move mountains if necessary (she hasn't asked me yet), reminds me daily of the beautiful simplicity of life. A night on the town as well as a meandering bike ride through dirt roads on a lazy Sunday afternoon (the bike is a cruiser with a comfortable seat ... perhaps I should start holding a parasol) are both attractive options. Heine's "du bist vie eine blume" is the best I can do in German (the professor was a romantic who didn't spend time on more practical matters), but I speak several romance languages fluenty. Along those lines, I enjoy meeting people and have found an ability to connect and converse easily with people from all walks of life and many areas of the world. However, I feel truly at home while alone (or with a close loved one) by the ocean or in a redwood grove. I live in the moment as much as possible, and have discovered more and more the limitations of the mind. I write substantially for my profession, yet explore a different approach to writing on weekends. I traveled about much of the nation as part of a folk music group about twenty years ago, and have also explored Europe and South America. I travel less now, but find the wonders of Northern California sufficient for the time being. After all, simply catching light in a prism is fascinating. I enjoy spending time with someone who is curious about life, enjoys simple pleasures, and can contemplate an interesting theory yet be rendered speechless by a beautiful sunset. Thoughtfulness and intelligent humor are irresistible. I am put off by arrogance and hope that one's pursuits are sincere. I respect someone who takes responsibility for himself and expresses genuine concern for others (in other words, one who has had the advantage of good parents/mentors in life), and one who takes the time to reassess the delicate balance between taking control and letting go in life.
