Your joy is your sorrow unmasked...When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~Kahlil Gibran -- The Prophet
Lovely lady with a functioning brain (!), expatriated from Seattle to the Netherlands, working as a freelance counseling psychologist. I try to live each day to its fullest --- this is not a rehearsal, folks! I'm always happy to meet new friends who love all the good things that life has to offer. Music, travel, my two cats, camping, liberal politics (left-wing commie pinkos only, please), and fun and laughter are my primary interests. My secondary interests you will have to find out for yourself!
I'm the only child of the late, great jazz pianist and composer Russ Freeman, who was "instrumental" in the careers of Chet Baker, Shelley Manne, Art Pepper, among many other great jazz artists.
To continually strive for my own self-actualization, in spite of any adverse outside circumstances or distractions of happiness.
What Gives Me Hope

If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Legalize marijuana, and make its use compulsory for certain uptight individuals, i.e. Republicans and religious nuts.
What/who changed my life and why
The event that changed my life completely was meeting my husband, Edwin. Not only did I leave America behind for a life in Holland with him, but he shares a love with me like nothing I've ever experienced before. Complete mutual unconditional acceptance has brought us to a magical place in our relationship with each other, and to my outlook on the world.
