My self-summary
I'm Untelligent. Would you want me any other way?

I'm The Penultimate Woman
Kidding! I'm not interested in second best.

Catch and Release (me)
Joking again! You gotta know, I'm a keeper.

A poet? You'll know I'm keen for you when I feverishly pen what might, conceivably, maybe, resemble poetry.

I want to partner; what about you, partner?

I'm into simple pleasures, like making out on the dance floor.
And not so simple pleasures, like the minor key.

A quintessential mix of fragile and strong
Would we get alone?

Perhaps, if you are secularist/scientific…I'm non-theist. Mon dieu!
And if you are emotionally and physically affectionate.
And if you prefer questions over conclusions.
And if you are exceedingly kind.
And, I must say it, if you are very quick witted, and love to laugh, a lot.
And, if you want one woman to love, completely.
I could go on.

I’m a sweet, simple-minded girl. Take the following as case in point:

I may not know
All I can be
But I do know
Who
I want
Beside me
A ditty

Are you able to take the wheel? I need a metaphorical brake.

Construction ongoing
Yield
Chain, chain, chains... naw
Shoulder-safe
DON'T STOP!
Ramp to Hell or High Water
Drive on the Correct Side of Everything
No-Free-Way

Calling all non-policing men. Approach the vehicle and write your own ticket.

Or, we could have a no-pressure first date:
Take the road that stretches out before you. You know the way; you drew the map. You take it up and down, up and down, and then see the smooth stretch before you, the S-curve, the u-turn, your choice but avoid the dead-end, and you go further, you simply continue because you remember you can keep going if only you keep going, so you do, keep going, and it'll take as long as it takes, and you'll know you are exactly where you want to be, you can see the horizon, the expanse of endless sky and you, you ah, you, wait I'll remember, just a sec, got it, yes, this is where you park it. I'll meet you there; then we'll switch metaphors and fly to the moon.

Or coffee would be good...

Okay, how about these testimonials*

So sexy.
There's something so elegantly sensual about you.
Clever and edgy!
Reading your profile was more like spending a weekend with you.
An adventure!
Remarkably playful.
Intellectually beautiful.
Self-admiring obscurantism! (so you say)

*The above are about a profile, not a person, and were written by some loser named Madison Avenue.

"Pedestal Rap Trap"

I don't wanna be no angel!
That, would be fatal!
Wings are for Birds to fly free
Like an angel could never be.
Alas, again, a ditty

Wisdom for the Aged (as soon as I remember it):

When one door closes, another refrigerator door opens.
Beware the hand that fits the glove so unbelievably well.
I lost my mind in a wild romance. (Mose Allison)
Projection of our own home movies requires a mirror in every scene.
It's actually true, can you believe it? You don't always make it when you try. Just ask 99% of the world's population.

Maybe we match up spiritually. I used to believe in reincarnation, but that was before climate change.
I revere Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping.
And I traveled with the full-night transit of the Southern Cross, from a beach on Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, 1987.
And, I bear the pattern of Orion's Belt on my abdomen, naturally inscribed, I think when I unrolled sometime very early on, so proof positive I'm made of stardust.

To continue (more's the pity), you might be interested to know I once got a

Complement from a MAN!

He said, "Wouldn't ----- be a really FUN wife!"

I DO!

understand,

and I would say this about marriage: I don't believe in the necessity; I do believe in the possibility. How about you?

Now, what to do while searching for the haystack needle?

enjoy YOURSELF,

which reminds me of the slim volume of poetry I once wrote entitled, "Five Years In Bed With The Same Woman".

What I’m doing with my life
Lately, I've noticed that if I try really, really hard, I can be quite sincere. :)

I am also contemplating how 9 out of 10 humans are caused by wildfires.

Otherwise, I am
seeking bells and whistles, using smoke and mirrors
watching romantic comedies because I don't have one of my own?
not watching TV,
satisfying curiosity and
taking loving action.
I’m really good at
Or rather, I'm really good at some of these, and love them all:
rock 'n roll
the funk the boogie the blues
opera
playfulness
sensuality
adventure
justice
rescuing insects
animals
curiosity
scribbling
the arts and literature
kindness
lust
irreverence
paradox
cultural travel
comedy
theater
museums
inclusiveness
physical and emotional affection
dancing dates
frogs and great-horned owls
free-irony zones
romantic love
pinball with friends
really good at sounding pretentious when I'm really not
The first things people usually notice about me
that I'm single, ha.
people who become my friends often say they loved me at first meeting, which makes one feel great, doesn't it?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently read Oliver Burkeman's “the antidote: happiness for people who can’t stand positive thinking” (actually a serious work, positively!)
Now on my bedside table: Amiri Baraka, Jonathan Franzen, Amy Tan
A short list of favorites: James Brown, Yip Harburg, Billy Strayhorn, Louis Jordan, J.B. Lenoir, Marvin Gaye, Charles Brown, Alice and John Coltrane, Albert King, Etta James, Gil Scott Heron, Bootsy Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, Utah Philips, P Funk, David Gray, Laurie Anderson, Little Feat, Jerry Miller, Tiran Porter, Joe Frank, Martin Short, Over the Edge, Tony Kushner, Caravaggio, Duccio for the color blue, Puccini, Mozart, Warhol, Spike Lee, Mary Oliver, John Updike, Zora Neale Hurston, Robert Burns, Martha Graham, Shakespeare...
Movies: Bread and Tulips, when the man says to the woman, "Your husband is not a fine connoisseur of your soul", Nashville, the HBO production of Angels in America, Tom Ford's, A Single Man, and Adaptation for the line, "You are what you love, not what loves you."
Food: Don't you agree the pear possesses a certain cool lusciousness...
The six things I could never do without
affection, laughter, trust, playfulness, hope, access to non-corporate media and a dictionary. Okay, seven things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to live an authentic life.
how I believe we might better utilize our capacity for change.
how I ache over the dark ages we live in, and how quickly we are now killing our planet. I think about where the years went and where I am now. I wonder if I will find my true mate, and I know I want to but that it cannot be guaranteed. I think about how no one can say the word "die" anymore and use "passed away, passed, passed on..." I make up more jokes, like, " Did he pass on the potato salad? Did she pass over her obvious match?" I laugh at how, as an atheist, this passing over to something else could thought of as discriminatory. :)
I could go on, but I would have to spend more time thinking and I just don't want to, except, that I think a lot about how many smiley faces I have to type so you know IT'S A JOKE! :)
On a typical Friday night I am
sometimes out for dancing and great music, or playing music, or around San Francisco with friends, or tuning in to the History of Funk, or playing late-night pinball, or putting off tomorrow...

A metaphor for moi:
You can find me at the opera one night and in a dive bar the next...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am sometimes mistaken for an oxymoron.
I’m looking for
