I'm a well-adjusted woman of many talents. I'm a well-published writer, funny, friendly, slyly erotic. I'm a good cook, great kisser, and I know the entire alto part of "Finian's Rainbow."
My mind works very quickly, and I definitely need to meet someone with a mind to match. Literacy and irony are, I'm afraid, imperative (unless we decide for a limited-engagement sex romp) (...kidding) (pretty much)
I tend to wake up every morning happy (for want of a better word), and somehow I feel wise, (ditto). I don't mind being my age. I feel fortunate and energized.
I have always been considered attractive---I'm frequently told that I seem to radiate an inner quality. I'm your high school girl friend -- vivacious. I have shiny hair, pretty skin, long thin legs and a voluptuous body. I'm independent (although a man who knows his way around a tool bench always makes me weak in the knees), exuberant and interested in almost everything. I'm very passionate personally, politically, intellectually. I can be also be very shy, though, and I need quiet time.
I can be very zany and uninhibited. I am also pretty irreverent. My sense of humor can be very dark indeed. Once I'm comfortable with people, I love to laugh and to make them laugh. (I have to say that I'm good at it.) And I'm low-maintenance and easily pleased. But that doesn't mean that I'm a push-over or passive--I'm not. It just means that if we're at your place and you make scrambled eggs for supper, I'm happy. I'll make hash browns.
I care very much about the people in my life. I take my greatest satisfaction from being mother to my son--he's a stellar kid. I have a really diverse range of friends. I treasure them. And, of course, there is Asia, my cat (see photo), prize of the DC Animal Rescue League, 2005.
I'm longing to meet a SMART, big-hearted, down-to-earth man who is intelligent, interesting and interested. (and, I have to say--not grumpy) Where is the smart guy with the ironic sense of humor, the wood chopper who reads? Are you out there??? Are you??? If you are...do you like peach pie??? Would you like your own private geisha? I'm 65, my son is launched, and I'm ready to know what's next. If this sounds good, for God's sakes, WHISTLE!!!
