I'm bright, lively, warm and enthusiastic. I like to talk, laugh,
have fun, always have lots of energy and ideas, but am also
thoughtful, intuitive, supportive, laid back and cool - but
Things that make me happy are: the sea, and seaside places; cities
(architecture, urban life, fashion); hot hot Mediterranean sun; my
garden; fresh air; films, music of all kinds, especially opera;
visual arts, galleries; wine bars (well, you have to stop with all
the rushing around sometimes); making plans; journeys; Greece; new
ideas; new places, old places, new things happening; amazing
people; just life in general ...
I like being with people who are creative and imaginative about all
kinds of things, intellectually curious and independent, tolerant
and compassionate, practical (because I'm not always), funny (and
make me laugh ...), edgy and sexy .... and might kiss me amazingly
... or, even, drive all night to buy me some shoes ...***
What I’m doing with my life
Being busy, letting it happen, enjoying it - occasionally wondering
'Has it all come to this?!...' (don't we all ...?), before having a
glass of wine ...
I’m really good at
.... surviving and laughing against all the odds...after that, I'm
quite good at planning fun things to do, making things (all kinds
of things), driving (so I like to think) and not minding criticism,
... hanging in there ...
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile ... (so I'm told)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All kinds of music, especially (and always, day or night) Bob
Dylan, then Rosenkavalier, Theodorakis, Glasvegas (this week
anyway) ... any film about Paris, or featuring Jeff Bridges ....
books, just books .... Kazantzakis more than other writers,
especially books that I know I'm going to hate finishing because I
won't have them to read any more ...Mediterranean food, colourful
food, party food!
The six things I could never do without
Fun people, the Mediterranean, really warm sun, biscuits, perfume,
a comfy bed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
family, friends, the things people say, things I could improve or do differently, plans, places I've been and want to go back to, trees, colour, art, memories,, food, work (good and bad!)
On a typical Friday night I am
You should message me if
You think I sound interesting and we'd have a connection (and especially if you look like Jeff Bridges (at any age!)) - I'm very easy to get to know, easy to talk to and I think fun to be with!
***this is a reference to the amazing and stirring Springsteen track .... I am not a mad shoe fetishist (though I might be one or the other ..... but I do have tender charms!
