What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to laugh and love as much as possible. I'm trying to see
and make as many beautiful things as possible. I'm a painter and
muralist and work out of the extended bay area. I love my work but
also am fascinated by science (love Science Friday, for all you NPR
geeks like me). My work occupies my life most days and it's a
solitary pursuit as most fields of art are. As a result I really
like to get out in the evening and see people, share conversation,
see a film, connect. I would really love to find someone to share
ideas, conversation and fun times with. Love the outdoors, not a
fanatic about it though. I do yoga, love to cook for friends and
family, love to have people over, sitting around the table, love
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at being a friend. I'm very loyal, have friends for
years, forever really, but love making new ones.
I'm a pretty good cook.
I'm a great mom.
I'm really good at my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well I guess that would be appearance and friendliness. I think I'm
pretty warm and welcoming, and fairly attractive so there's that.
People don't usually communicate those things right off the bat so
hard to say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love Wes Anderson movies, Cohen Bros., foreign films. Just sow a
great french film called "The Intouchables". Lots of comedy's some
adventure films. Right now I'm reading Paul Auster, "The Book of
Illusions", just finished the Stieg Larsson books "Girl With the
Dragon Tattoo" series. Many favorite authors, Robertson Davies,
Donna Tart, J.D. Salinger, so many. Who can pick a favorite?
Oh music, love many of the new Indie bands, Fleet Foxes, Shins,
Decemberists. Old stuff, Counting Crows, Neil Young, bluegrass
music, rock and roll, classical and blues, some jazz too.
Wow kind of rambling but you get the picture right?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a tough one because if I've learned anything in life to
date it's that nothing is as constant as change.
2. good food ( can be simple though)
4. friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time being in the present. Thinking about the here
and now and how I can make my live and that of my loved ones
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having friends over, going to a pub or bar/restaurant with friends,
going to a movie or cuddling up with a good book or streaming a
movie or show on my computer in bed with my dog and some ice
cream...just being honest.
