Active, down to earth woman looking for a good, fun, smart and
left-leaning man. I love to hike, garden, canoe, go to movies
(mostly independent), go to concerts (especially jazz and
symphony). I love nature, animals, the night sky, snow, good
conversation, good silence, good music, good friends and family. I
watch virtually no television ( I do like the Olympics).
What I’m doing with my life
Living it with as much joy, compassion, beauty, and lightness as I
I’m really good at
appreciating beauty, nature and the small miracles.
The first things people usually notice about me
Really not sure. Thinking about this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoyed the new movie, Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and
Beautiful. Mostly I see movies at RealArtWays, Cinestudio and
Cinema City. Sunday Jazz concerts at Hartford Public Library all
last winter were exceptional. Did you see The Tempest at Hartford
Stage? Excellent. Right now most of my reading is about gardening,
or newspapers. Food: I just started eating meat again after years
of not. My body seemed to want that protein. I am careful to eat
healthy foods, organic as much as I can afford. Present favorites:
artichokes, bluefish, excellent watermelon and mangoes. And ice
cream. And chocolate...
The six things I could never do without
Trees, loving, being loved, learning new things, animal companions,
smiling, the possibility of a better world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
all kinds of things; trees, plants, gardens, chocolate, the world,
how to build a successful compost pile, poems by Mary Oliver or
Rumi, when can I ride my bike?, the sad state of affairs in our
government, are love, companionship and sex possible at this late
state of affairs?
On a typical Friday night I am
leaning into the weekend, looking forward to the relaxed pace that
comes with it. Maybe cooking and having dinner with a friend, or
perhaps enjoying the peace and solitude of eating not exactly alone
with Zoey and Nelson (canine and feline).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that private things should be shared when the time is right.
You should message me if
you got this far and think maybe, just maybe....
