My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an adventuresome spirit, a gentle soul and an agile mind. I'm open to new experiences and have an unending curiosity about human nature. I've been an educator and am in the psychology field. I love my work but am no longer defined by it. I've cut back to part time and love the freedom it allows for my other passions. I love puttering in my yard and gardening (a favorite place) or creating in my home art studio. I am accomplished in a variety of media. Art is a supreme pleasure; making form, moving color, bringing dimension to experience, expressing the inexpressible. So, other things I love -- dancing, writing (working on a collection of short stories) ripe nectarines, crossword puzzles (number two pencils with good erasers!) unexpected moments, the high art of hanging out, being silly (adulthood, at times, is very over-rated,) hot water (lounging in, not the kind that spells trouble,) movies (I'll go see almost anything,) flannel sheets, cuddling, playing guitar and singing, building things (I confess...I love my power tools) and playing almost all sports. I'm passionate about downhill skiing and have recently dusted off my tennis racket. I live in an old farm house in Berkeley and part-time in Truckee; especially in winter when the snow covered mountains call to me. I'm well traveled in inner worlds (I have a committed meditation/mindfulness practice) and am at home in irony and awe. I'm young in heart and body, attractive, energetic, intuitive, compassionate, very easy going (life has enough challenges without inventing them,) feeling, communicative, playful, sensual and both romantic and down to earth. I have an ironic and quirky sense of humor. My values are traditional; truth, loyalty, monogamy, kindness, integrity and respect for differences. I have many remarkable friends whose diversity and gifts grace my life. I love my wonderful son who married a wonderful woman and the just had a daughter. I am in grandmother heaven! Both are PHD's in sociology. Being a parent has been a joy and a blessing. Basically, I have a very abundant life; the only thing missing is a partner to share both the sublime and ridiculous -- the extraordinary and the mundane.

You desire to be met emotionally, physically, mentally and soulfully. While striving is fine, you understand that perfection is a silly concept; its about intention and a willingness to be human and staying connected no matter what. You can be present for the good as well as challenging times and understand that intimacy includes both. You value closeness of silent moments as well as open and engaged conversation. No topic off limits. You're comfortable with the language of feelings and are no stranger to your inner world. You care about people. You're capable of relaxing into the moment and when in doubt you lean into curiosity rather than judgment. You appreciate that often life happens in between the plans. Creativity is important to you and culture includes everything from theater to Sesame Street. You delight in both giving and receiving and believe in integrity, kindness and commitment. You seek truth and know that it doesn't always stay still; being real is more important than being right. You are engaged in your life. You care about your work but it doesn't rule you; you enjoy the high art of play. You find much in life that amuses you. You have a sense of humor, and of course, appreciate mine. You're comfortable in your body and enjoy being physically active. Basically, you are an evolved jock with a high emotional IQ ... (If you downhill ski that would definitely be icing on the cake.) You are definitely heart-full and sensual and feel the Food and Drug Administration is remiss in not considering affection a basic food group. You desire a relationship grounded in genuine friendship and most especially an ease of compatibility in daily rhythms. Is this a lot to ask for? Absolutely! And I hope you ask a lot of me! I've known love before and want it in my life again.

PS: My friends keep telling me to list my age as 59 --- I know some about marketing and search criteria so from that perspective, it would be a good idea. While I look even younger than that and live the life of a younger person, I just can't abide by starting out with a lie, even if it would expand the number of men who would be interested. So, as Will says to Ado Annie, in the musical Oklahoma, "Take me as I am or leave me be...." Life is short and I've gotten this far with my integrity intact, so might as well continue...

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love going to the movies and have such a wide range of tastes that some might consider me non-discriminating. I like to think its just a love of the genre. I do have my limits, however, and dumb vilence as in Bruce Lee is off the list. As for food, I keep it healthy: organic at home but in the world, I am not a fundamentalist about it. For relaxation I tend to do art rather than reading, although on the word front, I love a good game of scrabble and crossword puzzles. And perhaps in the interest of full disclosure, I am addicted to: So You Think You Can Dance and the singing reality TV shows as in Idol or The Voice. I like going to theater and have a soft spot for musicals.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The people I love and who love me
Creative process
Exploration (both inner and outer)
Play (in all its forms)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Actually, I am striving not to think so much!!!! While my mind is agile and active, I am finding that life is more pleasurable when I simply engage in the experience of the moment rather than whatever my thoughts about it might be.

Current topics of wonderment include: how I wish to evolve my work, retirement, moving my art more into the world, what next adventure to plan (treking in Napal?) All that being said, the only significant thing on my bucket list is meeting a great love and living that partnership fully....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical and my life is constructed so that any night might have the freedom of Friday night! I like being fluid and spontaneous (this does not eclipse the value and pleasure of planning). Friday nights can include being with friends (walking, dinner, movies, events), working in my art studio, puttering, house projects, or catching up on a few TV programs I like such as Breaking Bad and So You Think You Can Dance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
