Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“I didn’t know that!”
What fun to be a perpetual student. At the moment I’m eagerly
waiting for the OLLI fall curriculum catalogue to arrive (Osher
Lifelong Learning Institute). Like a kid in a candy store, I drop
everything and study the dozens of offerings. Which courses will I
sign up for this time? Astronomy? Plate Tetonics? Italian baroque
opera? Pre-Revolutionary War history of Georgia? Acrylic painting
for beginners? Twentieth Century American poetry?
Can’t wait! I’ve bought my season tickets for several classical
music series at the University of Georgia’s Hodgson Hall, my house
and patio are finally put back together after several months of
repairs, a long-term family obligation is now over, and I’m raring
Wanna come along?
I’ll hold your hand in the museum, get absurdly “high” on the
sounds of beautiful music, ponder and discuss the play we just saw,
enjoy your family and play with your pets. Then, happily, cuddle on
the couch, savoring the day, because you so readily returned the
I won’t embarrass you too badly at the bridge table. A gourmet
dinner for twenty? Not a problem, but I am reluctant to admit why
one of my porch lights didn't work for months. Yes, my French and
German seem to come back when needed, and I’d love to “need” them
I’d like to find a man who hasn’t lost his curiousity, his
appreciation of beauty, who relishes interacting with a wide
variety of people, and who is wise enough to accept that none of us
have all the answers to anything.
If he happens to enjoy, as I do, living in a dot of blue in a sea
of red, great. If he agrees that pet hair on clothes and furniture
is not a disaster, even better. If he knows and accepts the
“woulda’s, shoulda’s, coulda’s” as well as the “dids, and am
doing’s” he is the kind of mature man that interests me.
There is only one deal breaker: No smokers or “trying to quit.”
And, if you are more than 10 years younger than I, I wish you well
in finding someone closer to your own age.
Drop me a line. Let’s chat!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
One of my pleasures is being active in the Osher Lifelong Learning
Institute, both taking and teaching classes, and participating in
several interest groups. I take full advantage of the cultural
activities in town, and--oh yes--am cleaning out my attic! I've
been an Episcopalian my entire adult life and am moderately active
in my church.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, writing, photography, cooking (it's therapeutic). Caring
for pets. (when I was a little girl I wanted to be a dog trainer).
Also misplacing keys, glasses--you know, the "would forget my head
if it weren't attached" syndrome
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs and Steel," and "Collapse" and Terry
Pratchett's hilarious "DiscWorld" series; Classical music, opera,
jazz, bagpipes and close harmony a cappella (like barbershop,
Chanticleer). Sushi, oysters, fresh BLT's, cheeses, chocolate
anything. Family favorite movie was "Young Frankenstein."

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't think I'm obsessive about anything. My interests are broad
