I'm a transplanted Brit. with a lot of energy and a busy life. I'd
love to make time for someone who enjoys conversation, walking,
theater, dining, and laughing at the absurdity of meeting through
the personals. I believe in always learning from one's mistakes and
in making smart decisions, but not being afraid of revising them
into today's new plans . . . . Lately, I've learned to spread my
wings, tested my comfort zones, stood up for my beliefs, bought
property, finished what I started, and walked away at the right
moment . . . . I've confronted difficulty, not held onto hate,
embraced love, considered wisely, and acted spontaneously. I'm
gregarious and I am told I have a great sense of humor. I'm an
academic and books and writing are a major part of my life. If this
sounds like someone you'd like to get to know and you have
complementary characteristics, then do contact me--please have a
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working hard . . . to be the best person I can be. I want to be
deliriously happy once in a while, and relatively content much of
the rest of the time. I want to learn how to follow my longings,
but also to know if they're worth following. I like my job, but
sometimes I work too hard. I'd like more energy!
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Teaching people to find in themselves what
they don't realize they already know. Having my own style. Being
brave and resilient. Being compassionate and passionate both.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, you'll have to tell me . . . the accent, of course, but
that's too easy. My smile, then. The way I walk--fast and steady,
despite walking with a cane (I have really crappy balance--but you
won't notice that right away!). My forthrightness. My humor. That I
am polite, sincere, and caring. That I don't get enough sleep . . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to chose from--I teach, I listen to a great of deal of
music and read many books. Even so, I wish I had time for more. I'm
always interested in new recommendations! Eclectic tastes in food
and odd aversions~love Asian food of many types, but won't eat
rice. Go figure.
The six things I could never do without
Silly question. Does one put the basics--air, water, food,
intellectual stimulation--or shoot for the moon and list the
out-of-reach? Will it be world travel or chocolate? Fresh flowers
on my table every day and champagne in my glass?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to teach tomorrow. How to find my heart-companion.
What can and will make my heart sing. Books. Fabric, color,
texture, language, and music. Another silly question.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are rarely typical
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
. . . . is not something that I'm willing to admit in this forum.
You should message me if
. . . you are not already having an affair with your motorbike or
boat or alcohol or ______ [fill in the blank] . . . you appreciate
building a special, communicative relationship.
