My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A reasonably intelligent, radiant, active woman, freckled, blondish, full of life and music, usually moving thru the world propelled by a song. No ravishing beauty, though there seems to be a certain something that is still appealing enough that I get flirted with from time to time.

I think it would be really nice to have a special someone in my life again. Life has been filled with great friends, a job I love, plenty of dancing and singing and small adventures to while away the days quite pleasantly.

For about the last eleven years I wasn't noticing missing love in my life. I thought I could go on happily with all that great stuff and only the occasional hobby crush for a love life from here on out. But then a guy came along who knocked me off that course. And, while he tuned out to be not entirely straightforward about himself and is gone again, I am happy to have been reminded of how nice it could be to have a loving relationship with the an honest, emotionally available guy. So here I am embracing new possibilities..

My ideal guy... Hmm I don't have a lot of specific desires about physical things hair color, height and so on. I know that I like pleasant voices, and decent personal hygiene.

Will give this topic a bit more thought and finish later

I am looking for someone who is honest, even tempered, responsible, genuinely emotionally available, inclined to be faithful and who would really like to work on building a relationship that is beautiful and good and for the long run.

That chemistry thing is different for us women, I think. Men often write in their profiles that chemistry has to be there from the start. Maybe it's not all or even most women, but for me the comfort and trust of friendship come first and only then to I begin to notice the small things, like how much he savors rather than gobbles his food, or how much his dog seems to enjoy how she's being petted, or how gentle and responsive his only-friends-yet hugs feel. It's then that I feel that attraction that i think guys must mean when they say "chemistry."

There are many things it would be nice if we have in common, singing harmony, playing music, and going beach combing being in my top ten. But I'd bet if we loved each others' company we'd gather some few enthusiasms from each other and have no trouble finding interests to share.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I could have retired by now, but instead am still working in a transitional job that I love, in the school system with special needs children. It's so nice too to have school holidays and summers off.

My other activities seem to be rather grasshopperly (as opposed to antly) these days, singing, contra dancing and playing my mandolin. Hope to add in a little rock hounding and beach combing before the summer ends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my wispy blonde hair which always seems to be getting away. Over the years I have come to accept it as part of my "look".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Rather a cultural omnivore. As Robert Louis Stevenson said: “The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.” He may have been being facetious, but I do find it a great gift to be able to find the interesting stuff in most everything.

Can't decide whether to mention fewer enthusiasms so as not to clutter, confuse, or limit your response or just toss a sample assortment of them out on the page in order to allow a greater chance of discovering common interests.

BOOKS: Oh my, I have read many, many books, though my pace has slowed some over the years. I am sure we have some in common. I like reading about Natural History and other kinds of science , Sci-Fi, Classic literature, all about metal smithing, ethnographies, some history and biography, and plenty of just plain entertaining novels.
MOVIES: Movies are great, both at home and on the big screen. Not in to violence much or pratfall humor.
FOOD: I love ethnic restaurants and trying new things but am, we'll ok let's call a spade a spade, sort of fussy and reluctant when it comes to some things like weird seafood and organ meats.

Worked in the natural foods business for a long time and tried hard to avoid becoming a "foodist" (someone who tells YOU how you should eat )

MUSIC: Celtic, Cajun, Balkan, Big Band, Klapa, Old timely, Rock, Early Music, folk, Country. ...

MUSIC, vocal in particular: Anything plaintive and mildly twangy ( think Alison Krauss), family vocal harmonies (think Everley Brothers, Blue Sky Boys, the Boswell Sisters, Finest Kind, the Watersons), the good singer songwriters (think Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon,), Shanteys and Songs of the Sea, Balkan music, Tuvan throat singing, the opera sound track on the BBC Inspecter Morse series'.

Oh my.. These long lists ...there is so much great music to enjoy...
I love to sing with friends, in the car, with instruments in the living room or out on the porch

. Being in a community chorus is on my list of things I'd like to do.
My biggest musical passion is to sing the huge eerie thrilling old fashioned white gospel harmonies of shape note music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well OK, here's one shot at an answer: Kindness, Harmony, Rhythm, Balance, Espresso and Oxytocin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Songs to sing, if I wanted to make..? would I do it?, the nature of the divine, what kind of fun can friends and I have next, travel fantasies, the quirks and peculiarities of my beloved species, the possibility of finding love again, how to age as gracefully as possible, "why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings".
