Hi! Ima Heckler should let you know that I am quick witted and value humor. I'm happy with who I am. I love creativity in all formats; I paint, sculpt and write, but truly love music, photography, dance, theater and anything handmade. I really like to pick.....the modern way of talking about looking for antiques or visiting yard sales or flea markets!
I am not so much an outdoor person, but who can beat the redwoods or the ocean for inspiration and peace? I've lived in Austin and San Francisco before moving to the East Coast, Ithaca, NY. I am thrilled to be back!
I'm a big woman with a lot of class. I love beautiful clothes and I'm nuts about lingerie....it leaves a lot to the imagination! Once had a BLT Party (Black Tie, Lingerie or Toga)! You just wouldn't believe what people will wear in public! Plus I scored a literally unknown talent to provide the music for my party......Alejandro Escovedo. I'd love to meet up with him again and ask if he remembers the crazy broad in the black bustier at that party back in Austin, TX!
I have a compassionate, caring side, and spend much of my time/ life working for peace and justice....this is everything from feeding the hungry to working with the homeless, advocating for equal rights for low income people and women. I am very left of center.
I prefer dogs, but do not currently have one, prefer chocolate to any other decadent treat, and hotels over camping.
I'm completely baffled by "chemistry" ~ I'm open to everyone because I just don't know who will have that certain je ne sais quoi that relates directly to chemistry. Humor is on the list; I know that I like to laugh. You'll have to be your own judge.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working on reinventing myself....this is the third time ON PURPOSE that I've moved to the Bay Area and fully expect to stay....finally! This time I've landed in Daly City and it's wonderfully cool. I have easy access to everywhere but I'm just a hop, skip and jump away from the city!!!
I’m really good at
friendship, creative endeavors, planning, organizing and caring for people. I trust easily enough but have had my fair share of scam artists trying to pull one over on me. I'm kindhearted but there is no sap who lives here. I'd rather give my money to the guy on the corner with a cardboard sign or someone playing music on the streets. They are transparent enough for me.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my sense of humor. I'm quick witted, somewhat sarcastic, easy to
be around and really love to laugh ~ even at myself!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Book: FATHER JOE THE MAN WHO SAVED MY SOUL by Tony Hendra. Also love anything by Merton, Richard Rohr, THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (seriously, the most enlightening of my recent reads).
Favorite Movies: Bridge of Spies was amazing.......and makes me wonder why there is such a hoopla over saving the life of our soldier imprisoned for 5 years by the Taliban.......but I diverse.
Favorite Show on Television: I love any good story! How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal, The Good Wife and Steve Harvey are also thought provoking, complicated and fun. Downton Abbey, Charlie Rose. My least favorites are jazz & Nashville Country.......although there are exceptions to every rule, like Latin Jazz and Texas "Country" if you can call it that......Lyle Lovett, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Willie; it's hard to have lived in Austin and not like the music scene.
Favorite Food: Chocolate (like duh!) I do eat meat but I'm trying to wean myself off of it and be more Vegetarian.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the challenges of life, how fear has over-ridden our country.
On a typical Friday night I am
ready to go out for dinner and plan the weekend!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was once top seeded in a tennis tournament only to fall to my
defeat because both bra straps broke. It was funny and sad and
totally embarrassing. It was before there was such a thing as
You should message me if
If you think of yourself as a great friend, a hopeless romantic who loves to kiss, someone who has the capacity to inspire and lives within 50 miles of the Bay area and........ is a man who loves women of substance both with curves and brains, please say hello!
