I am petite and somewhat independent and often travel the road less traveled. I can be quiet, thoughtful, dependable, focused and responsible. I can also be animated, "quirky" and a bit of a fashionista (although my horse does not care what I look like or what I wear). I am a mix of the above, depending on the circumstances and the audience.
In a prior life, I worked in the corporate world. I wore the standard corporate uniform of suits and heels. I am fortunate, as I can now pursue a more relaxed lifestyle. I am usually dressed in jeans, but do enjoy dressing up to attend functions and concerts. I work part time at a nonprofit, own/manage rental units and cannot function properly without my cup of Peet's coffee.
Prior to moving to the central coast, I lived in Cambridge, MA; Berkeley; and, San Mateo - quite a contrast to Watsonville. My horse and dogs helped acclimate me to a slower pace of life.
A prior collector of antiques (stained glass, art, furniture), I have now entered the disposal stage. I enjoy listening to all genres of music. The east coast (Boston/Cambridge/DC) and California central coast have been good to me.
I hold anyone who can make me laugh in high esteem and value intelligence, honesty and integrity. I like people who are modest, direct and drama free (or at least display only a minimal amount). Similar core values (emotional and physical faithfulness) are important to me, as is mutual respect.
