People say I'm mellow and outgoing. They also tell me I have an interesting life story with interesting stories to tell. I'm a person with an eclectic set of interests, and I easily get passionate about things to a fault. I am well traveled, well read and generally enlightened. I feel equally comfortable on flats and on heels, and, as Oscar Wilde put it, “if I am occasionally a little overdressed, I make up for it by being always immensely over-educated.” (jokingly)
I am pretty easy going about many things, primarily because I think it's silly to waste energy on frustration over minutiae, but there are certain things in life that I will stand for firmly. I approach life with humor because so much of it is out of our control, but I am serious about friendships and relationships - at the very least we don't want to hurt those around us.
I am a SCUBA diver. A couple of recent diving trips to SE Asia blew my mind away... and I also dive in cold water. Music and art play a big role in my life. I play piano (mostly classical, especially from the romantic period), I go to concerts, art galleries and museums. Some styles of architecture intrigue me. Other activities that I enjoy include social dancing (swing, waltz, tango, sometimes blues), hiking, biking, skiing, and ice skating. I still own a pair of climbing shoes, but haven't used them in a while, you can get me back into it if that's what you do. I also like getting together with friends to play strategy board games. I'm interested in international affairs and women's issues. Wikipedia is my good friend.
