My self-summary
i am healthy, fit, trim, articulate and like chocolate.
i crochet & knit hats for my business. i love books. i read every day and usually have 3 going at once; the public library is my very best friend.

i paint in acrylics, & oils...watercolors when i'm on the fly...and draw cartoons, which are, to the chagrin of most, based on punning & wordplay.

i subscribe to the atlantic ; harpers, the new yorker, the nation, & i just got a kindle...the latter being a royal pain in the Y K What because the battery life is awful.

i like the theater--straight plays, musical theater too -, NPR & the BBC, .fine art ; looking at good architecture , so many kinds of music, but mostly JAZZ !!! i like my 2 very friendly, UNscratchy and not at all mean cats Buster & Winkle, driving to a new undiscovered location and then eating dinner there.

i was born and raised in NYC; central park was my front yard. if i had to be exiled somewhere, it would be the UWS. i KNOW that the obscene rents and vanishing middle class values will never take away the heroic NYC i knew and still love.
i spend a fair amount of time in Columbia county, and like to drive into Vermont, a state that appeals on so many levels: political, environmental, aesthetical [is that a word?], and the people are so nice....

i was a tom-boy in my youth and admit to that proclivity now...even as i know how to wear a skirt.

i was lucky to have lived in paris for 2 yrs.... i learned the language, and most importantly it taught me how to be humbled by and flooded with respect for a culture that's not my own. they have excellent jazz clubs, too

caveats: if you don't like to sit with a good book several afternoons or evenings a week, if you are a conservative right winger, if you don't like a stroll thru MoMA or the Met, or don't want to just SIT without a DEVICE, and groove on coltrane for a bit, if you sneeze after meeting Buster & Winkle.....well then....let''s not waste our hard-earned spare time [actually TOO much time] carved out for this rather strange way to meet people.
