Dating StatusJust looking for authenticity in others and myself . . .
More About MeI can't say that I'm special; I can only repeat what people have found special about me. I've already stated earlier that people tell me my gift has been "compassion and empathy". My sister had a double-lung transplant a year or so ago in Houston, TX and I spent 28 weeks in the hospital with her as her caregiver and took care of her at home for 13 months. I was happy that I could be there for her when she really needed someone, however, it's not what I want to do with my life forever. I also have some musical talent. I was in a brass band for over 20 years until the last few years. If I had to directly what makes me special is that I was independent for over 30 years as a therapist and people acknowledged my work because of my passion for anatomy and always looking for the answer to someone's pain.
Political AffiliationI don't really have one; I vote for who I feel will do the job -- not the party.
Who I Would Like to MeetI'm looking for integrity, fun-loving, a sense of humor, warmth, financially independent, someone who can have "spiritual" conversations and "purpose", etc. I'm also very much into "The Long Island Medium" if you've ever watched Theresa Caputo. Love her and what she does.
Where You Were RaisedSalisbury, MD
Skills/TalentsI have Interior Design and Graphics Design in my background, as well as Medical Massage. I can paint a room and do the "finished look". I've given many a workshop for different topics: "Grief", Team-Building, Cooking, Empowerment, etc. Too numerous to mention.
Favorite FoodHot wings, deep fried shrimp; neither of which I have often because I'm a healthy cook and eater. But if we have to go with favorite and what my taste buds respond to, it would be the above.
Favorite PlacesI love PK Changs; I just returned from Tenn., AL and Greensboro, NC. I thought NC was a beautiful place; just felt peaceful to me. I also travel to Houston quite a bit and Miami, FL.
Subjects You Think AboutThe "other side" and what that's like; how to improve communications between people in relationship (used to be a Life Coach). Recently diagnosed with Thyroid issues, therefore, doing all the research and reading everything I can get my hands on to understand the effects of the disease.
Friday or Saturday Nights IEither out to dinner and movie with friends or sitting at home watching Ilyanda VanSant on OWN. She's one of my mentors and I visited with her in Philadelphia as well.
Life GoalsI've completed most of them, given I'm 65. I retired 3 years ago and have traveled a bit during that time. As I mentioned, I'm an avid reader. I would like to re-create a social life for myself and good friends that I can count on.
