My self-summary
I've walked 5th Avenue from 1st to 59th, woken at dawn to the sound of a Zen gong and seen the sunrise turn the snow on Rocky Mountain peaks pink. I spent the first half of my adult life being semi-nomadic. Then I settled down a few blocks from the house I grew up in.

I am intelligent, eccentric, and funny.
What I’m doing with my life
My job as a nurse requires both sides of my brain. I assess and analyze, but I also hold my patient's hands and offer comfort.
Second shift is my mom-job, supervising homework and listening to my 14-year-old's smartypants jokes.*(see below).
I’m really good at
Vocabulary tests.
The first things people usually notice about me
Leonine hair, Aquarian sparkle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
On my nightstand: Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slow, Bogle, Don't Count On It, and Rudder's Dataclysm (haven't started that one yet).
Movies - Coen brothers, for sure.
Music and food - my tastes are very eclectic. I am sensually omnivorous. If it's good, I like it. And I love being turned on to something good! I look forward to you sharing your favorites with me.
The six things I could never do without
the company of a good man
eating and drinking well
great conversation
deep friendships
incredible music
going somewhere I've never been before
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who are you? Smart, funny, successful, however you define that. I appreciate a man who considers his work important. I want a man I can admire and respect, a man who feels secure in his accomplishments. I believe a man happy with his work then has energy to grow in a relationship. I will be your respite, with a soft touch, a neck rub - yeah, even a stiff drink at the end of a long week.
I am funny and playful, but also devoted by nature, and I want to be with a man worthy of that trust and love. I am very affectionate and sensual, and need a man who is very affectionate-able! Kindness, honesty, and a commitment to being our best selves with each other would make for a great relationship.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dropping my son off at Grandma's house, and easing my way out of social obligations so I can go for a late swim at the Y, when the water is quiet and I can have a lane to myself.
On a really good Friday night, I get lost in the water and time, forgetting to count the laps. I have a waterproof iPod shuffle, and I love the sensual surround of my body moving through water and my head full of music.
Now if I could only figure out how to eat dark chocolate at the same time.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was pathologically shy as a child. Now I talk to strangers all day.
You should message me if
...you want to have fun! Let's laugh together, let's go hear some music. I am so ready for a Saturday night adventure - c'mon! Let's go! And Sunday morning, the Times can wait. We'll have better things to do when we first wake up. Yes, your work is important, but you'll be eager to spend time with me because it feels so good!

....your inner hippie gets jealous at the 23 year olds in front of us at Ravinia smoking weed, because you don't have any.

...you think my intellect is sexy. I love to learn new things, especially if they challenge conventional wisdom and the status quo.

.....you are ready to grow into a supportive, sensual, serious relationship.

*the joke section:
What do you call a psychic midget that escaped from prison? A small medium at large.
Why can't you hear a psychiatrist when they go to the bathroom? Because the p is silent.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question? Think about it.
