I am a native New Yorker who chose to relocate to a small beautiful
Upstate community over 25 years ago to make a cleaner, calmer,
healthier way of life that was better for me and raising my kids. I
am open-minded, intelligent, appreciate the differences between men
and women, well-read, a lover of great films, enjoy sipping
single-malt, a good conversationalist but a fair maker of
small-talk, comfortable with silence, a people-person and
people-watcher of the first-order, visual, funny, loving,
insightful and completely believe in Peace, but essentially
mystified by the violence in society. I guess I am still a Hippie
What I’m doing with my life
Visiting with friends and family to laugh and catch-up, museums to
see beautiful things and be inspired, yoga for stretching and
relaxation, movies but especially art house films, Indies, classics
and documentaries, flea markets and antiquing to hunt for hidden
treasures and dining out to simply enjoy; these
are some of my favorite things.
I am passionate about Art. Currently painting in oils, and collage,
and love to take art vacations that are painting retreats. I also
study about artists, painting and follow exhibits. I get lost in
the striving and struggle and hours fly by.
I’m really good at
Communicating in all it's wonderful forms.
The first things people usually notice about me
Petite, spirited, attractive, youthful, outgoing and enjoy life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Goon Squad, everything by Kent Haruf, Cormac McCarthy, John
Irving, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo trilogy books and movies,

The six things I could never do without
My kids, my sanity, my wheels, a home, my health and my senses.
Simple, and to the point.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, what I want to do with it, what I want to do next, where to
go next. Live up to my greatest potential: the secrets of the
Universe for Happiness, Love, Men, Art, Knowledge.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home chilling out after a week of work, a drink, a movie or out
with friends laughing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On the weekends if I am at home hanging out, just doing chores or
reading I might not shower.
You should message me if
You are intrigued and like what you see.
