I'm an active lifelong learner who believes that life is not a
dress rehearsal and that we need to make the most of every day.
Staying in shape mentally and physically are vital to this
philosophy and with that goal I've developed healthy eating habits
and a regular exercise program. Love reading, good film and
theater, good discussions, liberal politics, long walks, evenings
in front of the fire with a like-minded friend and a glass of wine
and, in general, the riches of life. Petite and pretty.
Outgoing, independent and successful. Ageless. Politically liberal,
humanistic. Had long career in public relations and journalism and
still enjoy occasional writing for print media -- often connected
with film. (The annual Telluride Film Festival has been a regular
destination for almost two decades)
What I’m doing with my life
living it to the fullest. Traveling. Keeping up with friends and
family, cherishing new experiences and enjoying quiet times at
home. Audit classes at Princeton University and attend many
lectures, films and other events on campus.
Have been a literacy volunteer, tutoring spouses of foreign
university students in English; an advocate for children in the
foster care system; have been involved in other community
While Princeton is my Camelot, with its many cultural and outdoor
activities and fresh corn just up the road in season, I get to New
York (where bed and bath await me at son's UES apartment) often for
theater, museums and other events. Train ride just long enuf to
read the Times.
I’m really good at
understanding people and where they're coming from; writing,
organizing, solving problems, friendship, living, playing with my

I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
nothing is typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've enjoyed the freedom of living alone in a home I've created but
remembering the cozy times in front of the fire with a like-minded
friend, a glass of wine and good music in the background, I am
returning to the scene with some trepidation.
