My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Being single is great. Having the right partner in a loving, healthy, growing relationship is even better. I can live happily either way. There is a side of me that is a hopeless romantic and maybe I will meet someone right for me, and I for he online. Making new and interesting friends certainly can't be a bad way to go either.

I am an incorrigible night owl and rabid restaurant worker. I love to travel and am off and running as often as I can.

South America and NOLA are two of my favorite jaunts. If you are into jazz, happy with your life, liberal politically, educated and into communicating, we may well have something to chat about.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving on to the next phase my child becoming an adult, etc.. Just at another transition point. Working on a few novels, a blog, running and Air BnB, always working a lot to keep the mortgage paid, spending time with friends and family, always striving to keep up with the house, yard, technological changes, my "alternate life" in South America, and throw in an indie movie whenever possible. I am always working toward the next travel excursion too. I have to have an airline ticket in front of me, or I go wild. Next stop: Sweden I think and maybe Thailand.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Going to Ecuador. Years back I attempted to adopt my niece from Ecuador (niece to my former husband). Her biological mother had died on a plane over Portugal. That occurrence changed the course of my life for a decade. The adoption failed. I spent the next many years going to Ecuador a couple of times per year to care for my niece/daughter in all ways I could in an impossible situation. I started a small importing business to fund the trips and her care. It is now a decade later and she is an adult now and has been for a few years. I love her dearly and will continue to be in her life and go to Ecuador, but, other endeavors are in front of us both. Time for changing gears.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My strawberry-blond hair. My alternating shyness and vivaciousness. I am an introvert at heart, but quite public under the right circumstances. My independence and strength. My intuitive capabilities and my near native-Spanish speaking capabilities. Not your average white girl; if there is such a thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Jazz, and pursuit of art in many forms
Friends and Family
Enjoying Cooking and the Sharing of Good Meals (although I am currently dropping weight again)
Creative Writing
Sufficient Sleep, Sufficient Running Around in Circles, & Humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When am I going to get to the end of digging up all of these dandelions? So happy to know that I am finally going to sit down and lean into my pile of unedited manuscripts. Where else do I want to travel now that my child is an adult and I can change my priorities some? How can I find more time and energy to work on my house and also spend time with friends and family? Never enough hours in a day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. As a restaurant worker, my Friday nights are not what "normal" day people consider to be a Friday night. Maybe there is another incorrigible restaurant worker out there looking...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can't live without jazz or other forms of creative and expressive arts. You can't live without travel. You have an interesting life. You have at least one degree or achievements thereabouts. I am not ruling out artsy types of men who don't have degrees. I just have my reasons for wanting a motivated man. I am not saying that I am a-mode, but I am not attracted to non-motivated types.
