My self-summary
I am a quiet extrovert. I enjoy being with people, from dinner parties with a few good friends to major social events, but also seek tranquil times with a joyful, loving man.

I'm a writer (everything from movies reviews to catalogs to my own short stories) and an educator (middle school English/Journalism teacher with a great sense of humor).

I love to laugh and am easily amused. My personal mantra is "Life is rich," though "timing is everything" is a close second.

I enjoy nature and being outdoors, but would rather hike a trail or walk a cityscape than bike, boat or run. But I've done all of the above and am open to rediscovery. I have never golfed!

I'm cosmopolitan with a little touch of country (loving critters and fresh produce.) I gave up camping of any kind after my son left home. I make regular visits to NYC, the Dry Creek Valley, LA (my hometown), Jacksonville, OR, and hopefully more Seattle where my son lives now.

I'm looking for a caring person who loves to cuddle. I want a man of physical and intellectual confidence, with a lively sense of self and humor. Someone who cares about his work, but is ready to play after a week well done.

MY PERFECT SUNDAY: Doze and dawdle in bed, dark roast with the Times book review section. Late, late breakfast, long afternoon hike with dog(s) or indie film (wo/pets) depending on the weather. Folding clean laundry in the evening while watching The Good Wife or streaming a Netflix, current or classic. I would love to have someone to join me.
What I’m doing with my life
Savoring each day as a writer/educator and mom to a grown son. I walk or hike with my new dog every day as a knee injury has taken me out of the dance studio for good, sadly. And I get to the movies as often as twice a week.

The six things I could never do without
My son
My dog (A scruffy little rescue mutt who keeps me hopping!)
Films and plays
And the ability to count to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What brought me to this day, this moment and how I will move forward, with mindfulness and compassion, to the next.

And who the heck would post the results of a Slut or Penis Size test?
On a typical Friday night I am
"Vej-ing out" after a busy week, with take-out food and video, and am ready for anything on Saturday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been eating far too much kettle corn at the movies. Trying to go cold turkey.

In reality, it would never be posted on a website, though may turn up in one of my short stories. More likely to be whispered to the one I love.

You should message me if
It would be wonderful if you've known the joys and challenges of marriage and the intimacy of raising children. If not, you must like children. (BTW: mine is grown, "launched" and living in Seattle. Grandkids are not yet on the horizon.) Hopefully you have a soft spot in your heart for animals, especially the canine sort. You'd like to share the great outdoors and music, movies, museums, plays and books with me.
