In her own words

Poet Muriel Rukeyser writes, "What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open." This quote resonates with me because in the last decade I have awakened in amazingly painful yet miraculously healing ways. There's much to my story, but suffice to say I am an open-minded, fun-loving, free-spirited, morally conscious, family-loving, children-adoring and still-likes-having-my-door-opened kind of a gal who cares for herself & others & the earth, is emotionally stable, well-educated, thinks outside the box, appreciates perspectives of others, and marches to the beat of my own drum...but not so much that I lose my job or cause the neighbors to gossip! (Well, I'm sure they do gossip...so scrap that!) I am a former college athlete (tennis) and I married, naively, at 22. I am not prone to fits and I am very optimistic about people. Imagine my shock when I discovered on my honeymoon that my husband had a violent temper. Always believing that we contribute our share to both the success or demise of a relationship, I tried everything possible to make our marriage work. And so, we hung together through three births, my illness following the second birth (due to hemorrhage and I am well now) and lots of marital ups and downs for 14 years. I do NOT take divorce lightly. When a union has produced children, I feel divorce is not an option except for in cases of mental illness, abuse, or extreme circumstances. It is awful for children. And for moms with big hearts. But, finally, I did throw in the towel. I'm fairly certain I did the right thing, but to break up a family is not something one sets out to do. So it has taken me four years to grieve that loss. Now, the kids and I are remarkably intact and ready for me to move on. My greatest joy is being fully present with my children when needed (less and less) and helping them to become strong thinkers, excellent decision-makers, and people of integrity and great compassion. I simply love being with all children, as my career choices reflect! I believe in being nice...in forgiving... In not taking things too seriously and in giving abundant service to family, community, and globally as opportunity presents. I'm not much of a bar-scene person, though I love to dance and I will have a Manhattan on occasion. I work full time as an administrative school nurse, K-12, so I'm busy! While I love my job, I love weekends and summers off even more! Dear reader, know that I am looking for long term partnership here. I really don't have time or desire for casual dating. I date so as to find the one for whom my soul longs. This precious man will be able to somewhat fit into our life here, in western PA, even if it means maintaining two homes for a while. He will understand the importance of my children in my life. He will embrace our family, along with his... It can be done! This man is rich in intelligence, but knows how and when to share it...he must be a reader, and a traveler, because that is how we grow and expand... At least that's how I see it, maybe I need to be more open here. He is financially responsible, too! I have worked hard to support my family and I maintain a debt-free life. I'm more of a contributor than a consumer, so I'm not much for shopping... but if this man for whom I search wants to shop, great! Above all, he will be rich in humor and not take himself, me, life in general, too seriously! I am a joyful soul and I've found that I require that in a partner as well. ;) So, if you listen to NPR, aren't scared away by a gal who might occasionally refer to the Divine as "She" and you are at ease with people and can articulate your feeeelings... we probably should talk. Peace to you and bless your heart for reading this far! (My kids tell me I say "bless your heart" too much! Oh well! ;)

For fun

I can do just about anything for fun! Even my job is fun! I'm a lover if life... Specifically, I love to walk (even in the rain) and I love to skinny dip in a fresh lake or pond (especially after a sauna!) and I love fiddling and Old Time music...

Last read

The Life of Pi... Such a great movie, too. Also reading, again, Sue Monk Kidd's "Dance Of The Dissident Daughter" and " The Four Agreements"
