My self-summary
I love to smile and laugh and find ways to seek humor in all aspects of my life. I enjoy making other people do the same. Most people are happy to see me - well most people.

My true loves/passions are music (especially blues and jazz), archaeology and teaching, but not necessarily in that order.

I'd describe myself as a tall, affable, affectionate, intelligent, self confident, easy going, fun loving, sincere, warm, passionate and eclectic woman that has much to offer. Did I use enough adjectives?

I'm looking for someone who works at staying healthy - physically, mentally and emotionally. Someone to share my interests (and theirs too) in music, the outdoors, art, literature, culture and theater/movies.

I've been on my own most of my adult life and enjoy my independence, however I'd like to meet someone who would be my best friend, my sweetheart, my passionate lover and a companion to explore the world with.

My ideal man can make me laugh out loud and he can show me tenderness. He's able to be a kid and have fun with me. I'm attracted to him because he has a good heart and a way with words. I find articulate men very attractive. Oh yes, I also love a man that is good in the kitchen - a definite plus!
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to stay physically fit and healthy through exercise and diet.
Practicing yoga, pilates and meditation.

Always exploring new interests.
I’m really good at
Making people feel good about themselves. It's what I do naturally.

As the Dalai Lama said "My religion is kindness". I try and practice that every day of my life.

I'm an information sponge. I love to learn new things.

Making brownies. At least that's what my students tell me.

Teaching mathematics, but don't let that scare you away. My students tell me I'm a very cool teacher which coming from them is a compliment.

Ask me and I'll tell you more.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not really sure but probably my height, my smile, my hair and my infectious laugh. I've been told I have a truly wicked laugh.

My favorite brother-in-law says I'm a bit loquacious but not annoying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love music 24/7. Did I mention that already? Especially blues, jazz and world music but most other music as well.

I have a M.S. in archaeology so love museums and any type of rock art whether it be pictographs or petroglyphs. National Geo is a favorite read of mine.

Enjoy the theater, nature, the desert, the redwoods, the beach, trips to the wine country, anything outdoors.

Recent books include Is It Just Me? by Whoopi Goldberg, Making Rounds With Oscar, The Autobiography of B. B. King, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Am fond of anything George Carlin has written. Love Robin Williams.

Favorite place for fish tacos is the Smoke House in Cayucos.

Anything they serve at Baywolf in Oakland.

Will go anywhere to hear a good blues or jazz band live.

Recently got hooked on Pandora radio.

Some of my favorite local blues artists are Chris Cain, Robben Ford, and Tommy Castro.

The blues legends include Willie Dixon, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Albert King, Jimmie Reed, Tbone Walker, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix , Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bonnie Raitt and oh so many more.

Also love jazz artists like Pancho Sanchez, Issac Delgado, Grover Washington Jr., John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Jeff Golub, Euge Groove, Chris Botti, and Greg Adams.

Am also fond of Norah Jones, Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Sr., Steely Dan, and Boz Scaggs.

I could keep listing my favs but that is probably better saved for a first date discussion. Can you tell I like music?
The six things I could never do without
Hmmm. That list is probably more than six but to name a few:
Music, family, sunlight, Peet's coffee, my reading glasses, my tennis shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How fortunate I am to be alive and healthy. That I can see, walk, talk, hear, think, and can laugh at myself. And I do that a lot.

Oh yes, and how soon I can get off this site because I've met someone I am simpatico with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nothing typical about my Friday nights. Could be at a movie, the gym, a new restaurant, a blues/jazz club, home making dinner, out to dinner with friends, home cuddling with my cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a great kisser (or so I've been told). That's something you will have to judge for yourself. :)

Oh yeah, and that I'm an ailurophile. That's not really so private.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 53–67
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're looking for someone like me.

You're not interested in rekindling any of your past relationships at this time, i.e. you've moved on or are in the process of moving on.

You don't ask me out on a first date and then assume it's dutch! I prefer on dates to take turns when dining out, not going dutch treat. It's tacky, very tacky, especially on a first date.

You're not deathly allergic to cats.
