My self-summary
I am a very active, vibrant, funny woman with a lot of interests. I am independent but understand the beauty, fun and excitement of sharing life and some of my interests with a special man. I have learned that life can be short (now a widow) and each day offers a bright new future, unexpected pleasures and sometimes everyday challenges. Although, I enjoy watching a baseball game, I prefer to engage in athletic pursuits -- running, cycling, skiing, tennis, ping pong and maybe some kayaking... Music of all genres improve my outlook and range depending on the mood and whom I am with. I especially enjoy the urban lifestyle but appreciate the beauty of the beach, mountains and outdoors.
What I’m doing with my life
rediscovering myself professionally and personally. It is a time for me to reconnect with my earlier passions about work and to redefine those interests and passions. I find that I spend more time living life and less time planning for it. I find myself exploring why I am here, enjoying the people around me and engaging in art, culture, music, travel and cooking. And, trying to get off of okc by meeting someone to share life's amazing pleasures and wondering where the next chapter will take me...
I’m really good at
being creative and entrepreneurial. My friends and family enjoy sharing meals with me as I love to cook and entertain. Good healthy food is important to me and you can find me at a farmer's market often (and there are many to choose from).
The first things people usually notice about me
My vibrant smile and energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read -- newspapers, the New Yorker and books. Some biographies and auto-biographies -- no new ones of late but there were ones on Steve Jobs, Andrew Wyeth and John Adams. Other favorite reads because of a book club -- the Art of Fielding, A Thousand Splendid Suns and the Kite Runner. A favorite author is Alexander McCall Smith. I like a diversity of films (independent and mainstream) such as boyhood, "A Separation," and "The Artist, Nebraska, Philomena, Gravity, It's a wonderful life... (none of these are new ones). Love a wide range of music from jazz to rock and roll to alternative but listening to music (and live music) is important to me.
The six things I could never do without
Health and exercise - running, cycling, skiing, hiking, tennis
Friends and family
A good cup of coffee and glass of wine
Clean air and water
My body and mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make my day the best it can bean whether I can find that chemistry with someone that triggers passion, love and friendship.
On a typical Friday night I am
spending time with friends. But no Friday is typical and am open to events, music, travel or ....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
you will just have to get to know me to find out...
You should message me if
you are interested in someone who has passion for love (I am a romantic) life and a desire to share it with someone special.
