In her own words

I strive to see beauty in everything--in people, in nature, in art, in culture, on the el, in the exciting, and in the mundane. I work to rectify injustice--never make peace with oppression. I smile and laugh as much as possible--make me smile! I seek to be present--engaging whomever happens to be in my path and observing the nuances of where ever I find myself in the moment. I love to travel and the most beautiful hospitality I have experienced has been in the poorest countries in the world. I seek to emulate that generosity of spirit and to cling to material things loosely. I love my family and friends--loyalty to my favorite people in the world is crucial. People inspire me. I believe that there is more to life than meets the eye--I nurture my soul and spirit by practicing my faith and using my God-given talents and gifts to give back to the universe and to the most vulnerable in society because injustice really irritates me. In a nutshell, I believe in going beyond the surface to see people's essence with the eyes of my heart. Yes, attraction really matters, but I am interested in meeting you, not your representative (Chris Rock) and I presume you desire the same. Peace!
