I am loving my life. I am blessed with great health, two lovely grown children, a rewarding job, a wonderful family and abundant friendships. Each day is a gift, as I recognize that nothing is promised to us. Our thoughts create our day, so I make an effort to have thoughts of adundance, joy, and all things positive. When I am not walking the lake by my home, I am listening to jazz music and wishing I knew how to play an instrument or sing well. For fun, I love to join my singing buddies to sing karaoke. I also sing in a gospel choir, something I could have only dreamed of several years ago. I am having a blast doing this! Recently, I decided to take piano lessons. (Mom was right. I am sorry I quit..... decades ago.)
I stay on the Peninsula sometimes and sometimes in Oakland. Each place offers a different pace and energy which fulfills me in different ways. When working, you can find me at a middle school, talking to and listening to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who are sharing their thoughts and worries with me. What a joy to work with this age, as these kids are transforming before my eyes. When I am not working, I am listening to music (tons of great venues in the Oakland area), going out for dinner, singing at some funky karaoke joint, walking, practicing piano, or hanging out with friends.
I would love to hang out with someone with youthful energy, an upbeat spirit, and a positive attitude.
PS If you love your dog, I wouldn't be a good match.

The first day could be for coffee or something very casual.
