I know it seems strange, but truly you can think of me as a really good balance of the following:
* Georgia Lass (Dead Like Me) - snark, empathy/compassion, life view (this sums it up pretty well: 'I always thought that I loved Halloween because I got to look behind all those closed doors. But now I see that it's because I was painted with something darker. That I was meant to see the dark, and through the dark...'
~ Georgia Lass
Dead Like Me, Season 2, Episode 15, Haunted
(I know this so well...and it's a beautiful thing.)
* Charlotte Charles (Pushing Daisies) - joy, second chance to live the life you wanted, love, loss and all that makes life worthwhile
* Gregory House (House) - understanding of people and the human condition, addiction to the 'light-bulb' moments, desire to be better or different tomorrow than I am today
How's that for a summary?
To get it out of the way, I've been on this site for probably eight years or so. I originally joining for the questions and tests only while I was still married. However, now I am widowed and it's been long enough now that I'm looking for someone to hang out with...share movies, museums, music and evenings out. I find myself in the process finally of making a life for me, of my own, as I want it to be...join me on my journey...you know you want to. Can't say I'm necessarily looking for 'the rest of my life' but I am a firm believer that you have nothing really to lose because you didn't have it to begin with...and I always remain realistically, hopelessly, romantically open.
I have a vast fondness for each of the following:
Literature, Music (all kinds), Art, 50's Furniture, Tiki, My Dog, Darkness, Rockabilly, Small odd European cars, Cooking, Useless Trivia, NPR, LOVE. Passions, Dreams, The Universe, Photography...and much, much more.
I am always curious, always thinking about something...my brain rarely leaves me alone (it seems only when I most need it) and truly just being and learning how to be.
