Although I am attractive, what really matters is what is inside. Friends say I am loyal, supportive and loving...and I believe them...they are my friends, they know me best! (Just don't ask any of my exes)...you can see I love humor, promise to laugh at your jokes and puns (even if some are lame).
At times, I"ve been known to also enjoy serious conversations, about current issues, political and social issues, books, films,
preferably with a glass of good wine...
What I’m doing with my life
I retired recently to write, travel more, volunteer, play with two
awesome grandchildren, spend time with family and friends...
I’m really good at
Procrastinating...more about this later :)
Languages...I can get along almost everywhere in Europe, even better where they speak English :) :)...
I am a good conversationalist, engaged and interested...
I am also a passable skier, mediocre kayaker and hoping to become a stand-up paddle boarder (ask me what this is)...
Breaking news: I tried the stand-up paddle board, loved it, want to do more as soon as the summer starts.
The first things people usually notice about me

I like serious foreign films, but recently have developed a taste for lighter fare, comedies, musicals, the sillier the better. Woody Allen is one of my favorites. I enjoy dance, plays...opera not so much... classical music, rock, jazz and, find Adam Lambert electrifying, Gotye moves me to tears. Love good restaurants, but even more small, out-of-the way places to eat and talk...or a picnic on a beach, sun, a slight breeze, good cheese, fresh bread and a little wine...
The six things I could never do without
Six things? ...let me try:
My family, my friends, my computer, excursions to beautiful places,
books, travel to tropical beaches...and prefer to do that with a
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why isn't there more justice and fairness in the world? what people
do and why...what people want and why... what to make for dinner :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends, watching a good movie...or just staying
home with a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like my coffee without sugar...
