ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Wow--seems terrifically hard to try to capture the essence of who you are in words. I think its something you have to experience but I can at least share with you my values--

1. I respect intelligence--not necessarily the I-have-a-PHD kinda intelligence (obviously an amazing accomplishment if you have it!) but the sense of wonder that many of us leave behind in childhood;

2. I love humor--to me the ability to laugh at yourself and life's little bumps and bruises is one of life's great gifts; I'm pretty sure that over-seriousness (is that even a word??) is the single biggest threat to your health and well being (well...maybe besides smoking....);

3. I value kindness--whatever your life's successes, I totally subscribe to the pay-it-forward school of thought;

If you stop reading here, you will know everything important you need to know about me!

If the details of the story are your thing, here goes the abridged version (for those of you suffering a bit of insomnia, I have the unabridged version I can share with you in person :)

--born abroad (Cairo, Egypt) but left so young and have been exposed to so many cultures since that my outlook on the world is more citizen of the world-ish;
--more of an adventurer than a home body-- love to travel and have traveled widely--Africa, Europe, Central and South America; when I am home, I love being out--hiking, biking, running, sailing.
-family is super important to me (would have loved to have children of my own but ADORE a collected assortment of nieces, nephews, godchildren, children of friends..really the best thing this world has to offer in my humble opinion!!)--that is one legacy of my heritage-that has struck---love and loyalty to family and friends;
--friendship to me is a lifelong-- not situational and not just when its convenient--despite my many moves, the people who are closest to me I've had in my life for decades (with an "s");
--have a lifelong love affair with learning (spurs me to travel, read, always open to new experiences)-- love good theater and the performing arts--up for foreign language art house flick as much as I dig Bond, Bridget Jones, Bill Maher, Chris Rock

Because I work in medicine, I get almost daily reminders about the finite-ness of life.
To paraphrase a line from one of my favorite movies--I just want to live a good story: to laugh uproariously, to make a meaningful contribution to the world, to practice mindful-ness and compassion, and to love well and to be loved.
