A note of caution. By far the majority of you are looking for 2 major feminine qualities that I, sadly, do not possess.
1. I absolutely and totally lack any detectable sense of humour. Lately, as my friends noticed with concern, I do not seem to LOL from dawn to dusk. I am especially incapable of LOL right after I wake up and the daily copy of The Guardian arrives into my mail box. And pls do not put any smiles on my face; are you kiddin' me? I have enough wrinkles, thank you.
2. A lot of you here are seeking a "G-d -fearing woman." Especially our neighbours to the south, the American Abrahamic tradition practitioners. I have to admit I no longer fear your G-d. Why? He is not available. I have heard from a very reliable source that he is in semi-permanent retirement in the 5th dimension, way beyond the accessibility of a nearest Wormhole. He is allegedly undergoing an intense Peter-Paul assisted PTSD and anger management therapy related to the gory mess he feels responsible for. I do fear other powerful G-ds, tho, like the Greek Furies, for example. I believe I might get a better response from them sometimes.
3. PLEASE, do not start your msg with "Hey, pretty, how's your Sunday?" or "Looking forward to the weekend?" My grasp on reality is so tentative these days, that if I open your msg AFTER the weekend, say on Tuesday, I may get seriously time-disoriented. I WILL NOT respond to "Hey, pretty, how's your day going?" either. it's none of your business how it is goin'.
4. I do not cuddle on a couch in front of a TV, drive without a purpose, or feel equally comfortable in jeans and evening dresses; definitely not when worn at the same time. If that is what you are lookin' for, sail on my cybernetic friend. . .
I also read, write, attend concerts, theater, and political events. I spend time with my kids, knit (a lot), cross-country ski, and mountain bike in beautiful forests in October.
I am politically active and involved in community building. I'm interested in the arts, growing food and foraging for it in the woods, world history, anthropology, sciences, philosophy, and a ton of other things.
I love big cities, tram noise, great buildings that are eye candy, huge public spaces, and grand rivers dressed in granite. Last summer I was in Barcelona. I wasn't that impressed with the city itself, but Gaudi definitely made my head spin (see the pictures in his park).
Thinking also sometimes works, but not always. I used to be very cerebral, but it dawned on me that thinking doesn't always look good on a woman. Now I'm trying to learn to walk in high heels.
Oh, this is such a lame question.
Can I apply for a part-time position designing the questions on dating sites?
I just came back from the Ashkenaz music festival. I felt so alive, so connected to all others and the source of all things human. If our politicians and their masters were musicians there would be no war.
-- How majestically beautiful the world is in the summer. As I write this I am sitting in a cafe on a Greek island --Alonissos -- in front of a noisy port. The air is filled with the scent of the sea; invigorating, nostalgic, but tarnished by the unpleasant clouds of diesel exhaust occasionally expelled from the innards of ships.
-- We are the strangest and the most magnificent species on earth. If only we just stopped killing each other. . .
But don't tell my mother.
