Here am I in mid-life, grown through so many roles and chapters and keenly aware of so much more living yet to come. Time is passing and I do not wish to let all of my days slip by in a chain of routine necessities and squandered hours. Neither desperately alone nor fully content in my singleness, I am looking for a suitable companion with whom to share the amusements and diversions, challenges and joys that this and the chapters of life yet to come will bring. In moments of high optimism I even hope for romance and love.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a worthy job, assisting my young as they launch, building a
better me and trying to find ways to fulfill the maxim "Live the
life you love, Love the life you live."
I’m really good at
Being a decent person. My daughter says I have a way of making
people want to to be better people/the best version of themselves.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hardly know where to begin here. There is so much that is wonderful/interesting out there in all of these categories - and so much that is bad as well. I think I'll have to cop out here and leave this for real conversations later.
The six things I could never do without
My young - even as I do so more and more...The natural course of life means holding them close in my heart as they grow further away into independent adulthood.
Thinking/communication: Ideas to read and think and talk about, knowledge about how to do things. I have a bit of a curiosity problem.
Human contact & connection. People. Friends and family, of course, but others too. I'm not really into crowds or "joining" but I thoroughly enjoy real conversations with smart and/or interesting people.
The expressive arts - music, visual art, dance, theater, etc...
The 5 major Senses ( and the 16 lesser known ones too!) Colors, smells, textures, tastes, touch.... It's such a rich and wonderful world!
Emotions. Love, of course & all of those other amazing, complex and bewildering human emotions too.
Bonus: The earth and all her wonders. Naturally.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
So many things. Some serious, some silly, some curious ... Quite
often lately: How in the world can I create the life I want from
where I am now? and how can I maximize enjoyment of now even as I
strive for something more/better?
You should message me if
You're also in search of a friend, a companion, a date, a relationship and maybe even love. And you know that the first of two of these are as much to be appreciated/treasured as the last. Btw: If you're interested in a drinking/drugging buddy, random sex or just want a woman around to clean up after you, I'm not your girl.
