A woman who has added years but kept her youthful spirit and
health. Find easy contentment in family (4 grandchildren) and close
friends. Travel here and abroad keeps me excited--hoping to find a
companion who travels well. Deep feelings.
What I’m doing with my life
Re-kindling an old interest in making pottery
Trying to add the regular practice of meditation to my life
Working in my garden after a terrible winter
Reading when it rains (and most anytime)
I’m really good at
Making a lovely garden
Listening and talking with friends
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps an easy smile, an easy laugh, and soft eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading Alice McDermott books currently along with Andrew Solomon's
'Far from the Tree'; love Japanese writers including Kawabata and
Murakami; most anything by Virginia Woolf. Books are
For films, old favorites are Kieslowski's Blue, Red and White
trilogy; A Beautiful Mind; The Mission; The Darjeeling Limited; and
recently The Lunchbox. Except some for some of Wes Anderson's
films, I'm not too off-beat in my tastes.
Music preferences include about anything except rap and country.
Love reggae (great for dancing) from many years going to Jamaica.
Always enjoy the Philadelphia Orchestra. Listen to old jazz
classics--Miles Davis and Nina Simone are constant favorites.
Like to cook--so my own cooking. Any ethnic cuisines, especially
Japanese; French particularly when traveling there.
The six things I could never do without
My children and grandchildren
A good love
Books and music
Warm friends for lots of conversation
Sense of awe (that's 7 isn't it?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The twists and turns in life and the requirement for flexibility;
appreciation for the things that make me happy; where to go on my
next trip; what I'm absorbing from interesting reading.
On the 'worry' side, I fear for our environment and increasing
conflicts and hatred throughout the world. What will be left for my
young grandchildren to have to fix?
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends or family, often cooking in my lovely kitchen, or with
a good book, always with some type of music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Very willing to reveal when we are sure we're a good connection.
