My self-summary
Single over three years now and still excited by the possibilities.
Busy with some great new projects - some work; some I just enjoy.

I've been a nurse, an actor/singer, an editor, a garden designer and a few other mini careers in between. I love learning new stuff!

I'm an independent soul and have never really felt the need to be 'joined at the hip' in a relationship. But it is nice to share - so it would be great to meet someone who shared some of my interests and maybe introduced me to new ones. I'm quite happy going to a movie/play/concert by myself - but then it's better to have someone to discuss it with afterwards... and it's lovely to have closeness, warmth

I might as well be bold and describe my ideal... Wit, intelligence and creative talent are all attractive. Energy, spontaneity and open-minded thinking are probably requirements too. A bit of culture, a sense of adventure and some spiritual depth could be nice. Laughter and kissing would be lovely.
I have loads of sheet music - maybe you could play some of it..?

Ok, I know I'm pushing my luck, but hey - don't ask; don't get!

(And I do actually want to MEET at some point so let's be practical - if you don't live in LONDON or thereabouts... I'm too busy for cyber-friends. Oh and, sorry for being so picky, but if you're not really single - please move on; I don't do 'other woman'...haha)

I am bright, spontaneous and creative. (and a bit pissed off that I'm 60! Oh well, don't feel it or look it so who cares?!)
What I’m doing with my life
Teach vocal and presentation skills. Coach in the corporate world: sales teams, marketeers, account directors, lecturers et al. Also teach actors/acting students naturally.
Very occasionally still freelance write / edit; but more focussed on developing my vocal coaching business. Much prefer it to spending time in front of a screen.

Decided to go back to my first love of acting and do some directing too. (I managed to acquire an acting agent - so that's a good start)
Enjoying developing as a director. Directed a new play at a fringe venue, which was deemed a success. So took on a major challenge to co-direct a simultaneous double by Ayckbourn that went extremely well and his agent liked immensely - phew!

Love singing too... would like to do more. Those old jazz standards I learned from my mother as a kid are still with me... there are so many fab songs - in all genres...
Also need to do something with my voice-over demo...

Doing my best to stay fit, mix it up with Bikram yoga, swimming and cycling (- the 'fairweather' variety, so just good hybrid, no racer!) Am not averse to the gym, but need musical distraction to keep me there as I find repetition dull!
I’m really good at
- my work, which I love
- Singing - done friends' weddings and some jazz - as well as the shows/pantos of the past
- I have good comedy timing - but only other people's scripts; don't ask me to tell a joke I'm rubbish!
- a few other things too.. making chutney & cooking generally / driving / discussing offside / helping / understanding
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm friendly and open and people generally seem to like me - but what it is they notice first I guess it depends on who's noticing.
I've been described as 'feisty' - which I quite like... and 'brilliant', which I'd like even more if it was true!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hotel New Hampshire (Irving), amongst numerous others; have enjoyed Hitchiker 'trilogy' (Adams) and No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series (McCall-Smith). Enjoyed Iain Banks Transition and Grisham's The Confession - have had to read so much factual stuff - so enjoying a bit of fiction. Just started I Capture The Castle - can't believe I missed it 'til now.
Also read Eva Gabrielsson's book about Steig Larsson(after reading the Trilogy of course), and Life of Pi was quite extrordinary...
I like selected biogs. Love cookbooks too - so I can steal ideas!

MIB, Starman, Close Encounters, Tootsie, A Matter of Life and Death, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Chocolat, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Class Action, Throne of Blood, Kill Bill (both), some Woody Allen, Coen Bros., Tim Burton, Mike Leigh, Love Actually - mainly because my mate Bill is in it, as is my friend Carol and they don't even know each other! Anyway loads of other films too...
TV - I can always watch Frasier and like Attenborough stuff (he's always been a pin up for me - with Sting!)
...and I do like a bit of legal drama so got myself hooked into The Good Wife - which is indeed good! Someone lent me Breaking Bad - very good indeed - brilliant finish!

Let's not forget the plays... Shakespeare, Wilde, Shaw, Miller, Pinter, Ayckbourn, Hare, restoration comedy, various modern... oh too much yet to see... saw a stunning production of Berkhof's Greek recently - wow. Reading a few play scripts at the moment, mainly to broaden my knowledge and decide what I'd like to direct.

Too much music to quote - Bach, Handel & Puccini, Rachmaninov, Sondheim, Beatles, Stones, Cream, Police & Sting, Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Ella, Billie, Sinatra, Buena Vista Social Club, Bob Marley, Hendrix, Diana Krall, Florence, Kaiser Chiefs, Maroon 5, Red Hot Chillies, Jaime Cullum - and more; the list goes on and grows...

Getting into baking a bit and have discovered that pastry is actually not that difficult...
Fish - especially fresh sardines - preferably eaten on / near a beach
and never underestimate lentils...
The six things I could never do without
my friends & family, music, good moisturiser, vitamins, htc phone and a 7th (rules are for breaking sometimes) my Mac
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my ambitions, places I'd like to go, the happiness of my family & friends, sex - not always in that order...
On a typical Friday night I am
Often rehearsing. If not, socialising; but nothing's typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am mystified by those that message me, enter into some messaging dialogue; seem quite genuine and straightforward chaps - then just disappear?! I wonder what the hell that's all about? I'm assuming married or wimps, but irritating nonetheless.
On an interesting side comment: I've met a few guys (there wasn't a second date!) who seem to be carrying huge amounts of emotional baggage re their ex-relationships. (one actually said 'Whatever you've been through, I can top it, mine was much worse'. Really? Without knowing anything about me?!) I thought it was us females that were the sensitive ones? If you're on a dating site, you should have recovered, I think. Or dare I say - get over it..!?
...ok rant over.
Except... I'm anti-religion and anti-big Pharma.... they're all about power... but don't get me started. (tee hee)
I’m looking for

- there is music in your soul
.... oh, and if you think I'm gorgeous - ha!

(if you don't have a picture on your profile - why? This being the case, don't expect an answer)
