I like reading, having a good time, cooking for people I care about, eating well, listening to jazz in a club, walking through gardens and parks, telling stories, singing, gardening, discussing the meaning of life. I love to try new activities and learn new things.
I have sold the large family house I lived in for 34 years and rented a one-bedroom apartment in Inwood. I am thrilled to be on the A-train and only two blocks from an easygoing craft brew bar, and I enjoy living in a small place that's all mine.
I am really 68, not a year or two older. Though I love being on an express subway now, I actually enjoy driving.
I spend a few days a month at my house on a pond in Eastham, on Cape Cod. I have a garden (in process) of native plants there, and find learning about native flora fascinating.
I have seven children, three of whom were adopted as older children. I'm proud (and relieved!) to say that they're both mostly independent now, and mensches, and that they treat their mother and grandmother lovingly. I love to spend time with them, and with my grandchildren, but I have a life of my own.
I just returned from a month traveling all over South Africa, partly on tours, partly in hostels and on buses. What a beautiful and interesting country!
I would like to spend more of my life travelling, using my storytelling and book skills to help and entertain people, and trying new experiences, from new music to hiking to writing to open mics. I'd like to have someone special to cook for and ... etc.
