Who is this broad?

When I was an Asst. Prof. of Psychology, the first class assignment I gave my students was to write as many sentences as they could think of starting with the words "I am." It had to be stream-of-consciousness, with no editing.

Since home pages are an exercise in vanity anyway, here goes about me:

I am a lesbian.

I am a teacher. Always will be.

I am a woman.

I am passionately Southern.

I am passionate.

I am a Scorpio. Classic variety.

I am sensual and sexy.

I am a Mac fanatic. Was this obvious?

I am a social drinking, cigarette smoking, red meat-eating non-politically correct earth woman.

I am healthy in spite of the above. Because of? My mother did all of the above, and lived to be 83.

I am deeply spiritual and totally irreverent.

I am deeply, deeply suspicious of fads originating in California. Seems all the new food and psychotherapy fads start in NoCal. What does this mean?

I am 57 going on 40.

I am so happy to be over 50. I read that it's the age when you stop having to hold your belly in.

I am a true dilettante.

I am a former English teacher who compulsively proofreads.

I read a book a day whether I need to or not.

I am on the phone too much doing Web business.

I am a cynical optimist.

I am a great cook.

I am a lover of the absurd.

I am a soft butch, about a 6 on a 1-10 scale.

I am bright, funny, romantic, and very grounded. Most days. Except when I am hysterical.

I am about over self-improvement and into self-acceptance.

I am single, and mostly loving it.

I am a sucker for a seductive femme.

I am sure that seductive femmes are toxic for me.

I am looking for a woman who loves me just the way I am.

I am messy, but I know where everything is.

I am irresistibly drawn to bodies of water - creeks, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceans.

I am a poet.

I am slow to anger, and you don't want to see it.

I am honest and self-revealing, and I expect others to be.

I am frequently disappointed.

I am too close to burnout and need a vacation and a weekend to remember.

I am having a great time on the Web meeting people from all over the world!

I am using a great program called Tapestry to create this Web page, and am obviously having fun throwing in all my favorite graphics from around the Web.
