I design educational programs for a national non-profit. Outside of work I'm an artist, painting colorful abstracts. Looking forward to nestling into the Laguna Beach art scene. I also dabble in creative writing and volunteer my time to social causes close to my heart.
Among other things, I'm passionate about art: visual, theatrical, film, dance, musical, architectural - they make my electrons spin. I practice yoga, Vipassana meditation and study Buddhism. I also hike and swim - enjoy camping and love to dance (former member of 2 dance companies in NJ/NY area) though haven't done these in a while.
I crave the soulful sights, sounds, smells and tastes of different cultures. I love to travel ... Haven't climbed Mt. Everest or made the Haj to Mecca, but have been to Europe, the Middle East, much of the U.S. and an island here and there. I like the beach but prefer crisp mountain air. Would like to meet a man also curious and caring about the world.
People say I'm down-to-earth, unpretentious and playful (sometimes my experience with improv comedy breaks through). I'm a bit of an intellectual: worldly, sensitive men with serious smarts turn me on. And a kind heart is a must! You choose to do the right thing, even when no one’s looking.
When it comes to romance life has taught you 2 things: One good night of lovemaking with someone you care about is worth a dozen "hook ups" -- and building a solid, loving relationship takes time. I'm a healthy, red-blooded woman with the right man, but I take one step at a time when it comes to dating. Not into serial dating or playing games. If you're looking for a quick tumble, I'm not your gal.
One last thing - I'm in my early 50s (though folks don't believe me). My profile says 49 to stay within the search criteria of men my age. Photos are very recent.
If anything here floats your boat, please say hello.
