I am a person with a great zest for life. I enjoy being around
nature as well as the excitement of New York City with all of it's
diversity and energy in both its people and its culture.
I love to travel (which may only mean a two or three hour drive)
and take photographs of the places I see and the people that I
I am always up for the challenges life throws my way.
I enjoy (music and dancing) and can spend many hours with a good
book. I also enjoy stimulating conversation and while a little
controversy never hurt anyone, I'm more into serenity and laughter.
I enjoy giving and going to small dinner parties. I enjoy cooking
for other people.
What I’m doing with my life
After having left the corporate world, I am working part time . I
also do event planning, fund raising and public relations to raise
funds for a food pantry and other outreach programs. One of the
most satisfying things that I do is volunteering at a local soup
kitchen. To see the large number of people who volunteer on a
regular basis to help feed and comfort those in need, is quite
inspiring and at the same time it is quite distressing to see the
number of those in need grow. I am also involved with raising funds
for a food pantry at my church.
I’m really good at
Being a parent, (although my children are grown &
Being a grandparent
Being a friend, confidant and mate
Bringing light and laughter where I see a need.
Giving and receiving love
Being a good listener
Planning events from Jazz concerts, to Art Auctions to
On the less esoteric side....I'm good at cooking and entertaining
whether it is a romantic dinner for two or a rowdy crowd.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read all sorts of books. I think mysteries are my
I like movies that make me think and that make me laugh. A good
mystery is great but NOT bloody, gory, violent movies
I love the old Jazz, American Classics, Rock & Roll. I also
enjoy opera and classical. I feel that basically if music is
good..it's good, if it's bad..it's bad, no matter the genre.
I enjoy many different types of food from Italian to Sushi.
If I'm cooking it's usually Italian (since that's my background),
or American, roasts, turkey..etc.
The six things I could never do without
Love & Inner peace
Being close to nature & near NYC
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Staying peaceful & positive with whatever life hands me. And
how to enjoy life to its fullest
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends enjoying live music or chilling out at home
with a glass of wine and a good book. Actually, whatever moves my
spirit is what I do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
