My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a fanatic over intellectual pursuits and am getting out there for tours, lectures, concerts, art exhibitions (and vintage car shows), opera and theatre (including battle reenactments every so often). The new guy in my life must be interested in some of the same and willing enough to enthusiastically share a few of these things with me.

I was trained in the visual (mostly painting and sculpture) and performing (mostly dance) arts and worked for nearly three decades as an arts administrator. My encore career is now working in programming for elders living with dementia so I get to exercise all my artsy skills on a daily basis that is truly a lot of fun and completely civilized and magical – all things that override the darker aspects of that work environment.

Despite the fact that my name indeed appears on a gravestone (it’s very freeing – you should try it!), the “GraveGirl” thing stems from my research and subsequent presentations regarding 18th and 19th century Philadelphia cemeteries. No! I am not a ghoul or gothic type, but it’s a serendipitous way to discover details of American history – a subject that I enjoy immensely.

My dating goal with the right gentleman is to develop a monogamous, sharing and soulful blending of intelligence, energy, joy and passion. I value and honor my relationships, whether it’s devotion to a partner, or whatever heartfelt variations occur with friends and acquaintances. I am not into games and dishonesty– and am very adamant about moving forward to create a positive partnership. Bottom line for me is good communication.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Beyond my intense work a day (and night) life, I enjoy vacations that involve either 18th century dancing or archaeology (doing that for 25 years now). I am typically awake daily around sunrise, and - after spending my first hour of the day with coffee and newspaper - keep going until midnight. I garden intensely during growing season, I do a lot of volunteer work to promote historic preservation, and I cherish my home-alone time for mental and physical relaxation and creative pursuits. I enjoy designing and constructing things although I am much better with a sewing machine than I am with carpenter’s tools. Style-wise I am more partial to Steam Punk than I am to Modern Minimalism.
I’m really good at

I'm pretty upbeat and energetic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I enjoy mostly anything to do with American history up to the 20th century, thank you. I very seldom read fiction. My bedside favorite: “The Brother Gardeners: Botany, Empire, and the Birth of an Obsession.” I can read bland historical surveys or archaeological reports with as much gusto as most people read steamy potboilers – go figure.

Music: Jazz (especially anything played on the saxophone) or classical/baroque. At the other end of the spectrum I am never bored listening to Danny Elfman’s “Serenada Schizophrana.” (I love interesting vocal and orchestral juxtapositions – plus Elfman’s musical influences are many of my favorite composers – Weill, Orff, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Shostakovich – but I love Ravel too). Jennifer Higdon’s compositions take my breath away.

Movies: My favorite film for the past several years has been “The Fall” by Tarsem – I always see something new in it every time I watch it.

Food? That’s a tough one since I like almost everything except goat cheese and watermelon. But I can honestly say that the best meals are those I have shared with good company – and if that means eating Progresso cold straight from the can, so be it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Coffee in the morning
2. Friends
3. Challenging, yet fun, jobs
4. My health
5. Music, especially in the car
6. Wisdom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why animals, children, women and married men find me fascinating…and single guys?? Well, that’s another story entirely…
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying a show (for now, alone!) at a venue chosen from the previous day’s Philadelphia Fun Guide listing. Or (during warm seasons) I might be out enjoying a beer with my neighbors waiting for the space station to fly over while our local bat swoops around us. Now that’s fun!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I enjoy making lewd out loud comments about people I see on the street when I am driving to work – hence I always make sure my windows are up!
