My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the worst liar you've ever met. I have a great sense of wonder. I gravitate toward people that can recognize the beauty in simplicity. I'm grateful that the richness of my life has very little to do with tangibles ("What is essential is invisible to the eye"). The absurdities of our existence deserve a hearty guffaw...people tell me that my laughter is infectious. I've also been told (more than twice) that I'm a bit of an outlier relative to others you might find here.

I have a keen appreciation for language, written or spoken. Words captivate and woo me. I guess that you could call me well read, but sadly these days I get into bed and fall asleep with a book on my face only a few pages later.

My reverence for nature is the closest thing I have to religion. I am made whole by being outdoors : seeing a beautiful sunset or flower can make everything right for me. I find our physical world breathtaking.

I am a fairly active person. Moving my body maintains my sanity. I run and bike outdoors and am mostly a gym rat in the winter. Close friends are trying to convince me to start training for an endurance event.

My hair is silver, I don't have the wherewithal to dye it and maintain a routine schedule as such at the salon. Most people in my life tell me that the color suits me and complements my blue eyes.

At heart, I am a tomboy but I clean up quite nicely.

I am a thinker. I answered a question on this site in the affirmative about my capacity to daydream, but in hindsight I might say instead that I am easily engaged by the ramblings of my somewhat active mind. I like to pursue threads of thought and make deductions and associations. Unfortunately I sometimes have a hard time shutting my brain off.

I am a mother to six-year-old twins that bring a lot of light and levity to my life. Watching my littles make their way in the world is undoubtedly my greatest joy.

I'm looking for a meaningful connection with an authentic person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Co-parenting two energetic and endlessly curious six-year-olds.
Working as a scientist at a pretty great company.

Feeding my soul with the following :
Time spent outside.
The company of smart, kind, hilarious people.
Fantastic food.
The written word.
Beautiful stories.
Work in the garden.
Hard laughter.
Music (all kinds. All the time).
An almost daily period of sustained quiet for my body and mind.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I make a kick-ass roasted chicken. I love making soups, pasta and pizza. Would love to take Thai or Indian cooking classes. For me, the aroma of a slow-cooked onion in olive oil is sublime.

Though I don't get nearly enough opportunity to do it (aside from with my kids). Someone recently asked me which song would most certainly get me out on the floor, but the truth is that I don't need much inspiration.

Conversation / listening / connecting with people.
I live for witty banter and conversation. Love to tell my stories and enjoy equally listening to tales from others. I can easily connect with people, folks trust me. I am someone with whom you may share your deepest secret even though we barely know each other.

Finding the humor.
I laugh readily. Loudly. Often. Mouth wide open and head thrown back. People close to me will make complete asses of themselves to unleash my mirth, and I am ever so grateful for that. A dear friend once told me that my laughter inspired more freedom and frequency in her own - that she learned how to laugh from me. One of the best compliments I've ever received.

My laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite authors too many to mention : love fiction and literature. Some memoirs and biographies. "The Goldfinch" was a favorite recent read. Not long ago I reread Salinger's Nine Stories ("For Esme..." is my favorite). Just picked up a book of ee cummings poetry. I've just started a subscription to the New Yorker and though I'm loving it I'm not sure I'll have latitude for any other reading. In recent years my appreciation has been renewed for "Where the Wild Things Are" and most everything by Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss.

Movies : A good story draws me in. I am entertained by anything from any genre that I feel is engaging and done well. Just saw Lincoln and Argo and thought both were amazing. Some old favorites : Juno, Fargo, When Harry met Sally, Princess Bride, Trading Places, the Usual Suspects. I am not usually one for scary movies but I think that the Silence of the Lambs is one of the most brilliant, suspenseful movies I've seen.

Food :
Love Sushi, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Indian - though in reality, good food for me is mostly about quality of preparation and ingredients regardless of region of origin.

TV : Watch documentaries and some reality TV (top chef, project runway). Previously been enthralled by the Sopranos, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, sex and the city, older Will and Grace. Currently binging on Game of Thrones. Big fan of the PBS documentary-style series : American Masters, American Experience and Independent Lens.

Love all kinds of music :
Vivaldi, non-acidy Miles Davis, Coltraine, Art Pepper, Dave Brubeck, most Blue Note Jazz, Beastie Boys, Pharcyde, Tribe called Quest, Simon and Garfunkel, CSNY, thievery corp, zero seven, mostly anything from the '80's, Depeche Mode, INXS, REM, Liz Phair, the Beatles, Led zeppelin, Jane's Addiction, the Violent Femmes, Queen, Cake, the Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Cesaria Evora, modest mouse, the killers, Fiest, Lily Allen, Kate Nash, Regina Spektor, Vampire Weekend, the Strokes, Hall & Oates!

I am also an NPR junkie : love This American Life, Car Talk, Fresh Air and wait wait don't tell me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My people aren't things...but I couldn't imagine life without them.
Otherwise : Fruit, exercise, nature, music, coffee, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of people and the universe.
How to raise my children to be independent, intelligent, compassionate citizens.
How I can find time to learn to play the drums.
What I am going to cook/eat.
What I am going to plant in the garden.
What book I should read.
The infinite possibility of the future.
Lessons gleaned from my past.
How incredibly fortunate I am.
Beauty. Love. Happiness. Men. Truth.
The Backstory.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my kids or with friends....or on a date.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ask me when we meet...I'm pretty much an open book.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in spending time with me outdoors. You want to take in all that the city has to offer and show off your favorite haunts. You are more likely to excitedly discuss your passions/interests than dwell on the things you dislike. Despite all the slings and arrows you've endured over the course of your life, you are somewhat optimistic. You are honest and don't take yourself too seriously. You have a dry wit and are at least somewhat irreverant. You know how to make yourself happy.

Please write me something more compelling than "Hi", or some comment about how young I look for my age. Even Worse : sounding surprised that you find attractive a woman with silver hair and relatively advancing age (I'm looking at YOU, mid-late twenty year olds).
I've earned the dreaded red badge of Responds Very Selectively because I'm underwhelmed by the content of so much of what I receive. I'm turned on by men with a clear command of language. Choose your words thoughtfully and charm me a will pay off.
