Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some say I am a " hot mama", but they really have no idea!
Now that I have your attention..... here is what really
My most visible traits are a vivacious, outgoing personality and an
optimistic outlook and slightly wicked sense of humor. I enjoy
finding myself in unique situations and am an easy
conversationalist with a decent vocabulary and a gift for
Yet I have a deep need to balance that with some solitude and quiet
time. An ideal partner for me would understand that and in addition
to seeing the world together, would like to share a companionable
home life, cooking, reading, listening to music and creating a
"cocoon" for us.
I have enjoyed a long career in the travel industry and currently
work on business development projects for luxury hotels and
resorts- I love what I do and it does not feel much like " work".
There is nothing I would like more than to explore the world with a
fabulous, funny,sophisticated man by my side.
Over the past three years, I have been able to help raise
significant funds for Wine to Water and their safe drinking water
projects around the globe. This effort and the relationships it has
brought me has blessed my life in many ways, and has enriched me
more than I can say. I have come to believe that if we each used
our gifts, we can make an impact in the world we live in.
I am a proud progressive in my politics and spiritual by nature,
believing that all of the world's great religions contain elements
of truth. I am open minded and non-judgemental and I love a lively
dialogue on spiritual as well as other important topics.
I consider myself somewhat of a news "junkie" and like to keep up
with world affairs by reading current affairs publications and
tuning in to the Sunday morning talk shows. I think it is important
to understand the ways of the world and to be aware of issues
beyond our own borders.
ABOUT THE ONE I AM LOOKING FOR:
My inner child is seeking a playmate, so you have a quick wit ,
spontaneous nature and are infinitely open and curious. A relaxed
style is compatible with my own, but we will both have to "clean up
nicely" for the fun events we attend.
Wisdom that can only be acquired through a rich life experience is
a valued attribute. I must admit that life accomplishments are a
turn on for me, and as old fashioned as it may sound, I would love
to "adore" someone.
A kind nature is imperative, and an appreciation of the antics of
my lively grandchildren is also a must, as they have a special
place in my heart.
It would be a huge plus if you had a loving, laughing family who
would embrace a newcomer and a cIrcle of friends who respect you
and enjoy your company- especially if they would embrace a newcomer
A large heart that could make room for me and mine could lead the
way to magic between us!
I enjoy a very active life though I cannot say that I "love to work
out", but I mange to get myself to the gym a couple of times a week
. Most of my workouts take place in airline terminals, but if there
is music I will be dancing and if I am stressed, yoga soothes me.
Being outdoors in awesome surroundings is exhilarating to me!
AND ONE LAST WORD ABOUT AGE, BEAUTY, "MAGIC" AND GRACE:
Thankful for good genes and young friends, I belie my biological
years and I relate easily to people in their 40's and 50's. In
browsing these profiles, I confess to being most attracted to men
in their fifties and early 60's . I am trying to strike a balance
between staying youthful and aging with grace, and I would love to
meet a man who loves my inner beauty and can accept that the
external is temporary for all of us!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am having great career experience taking on business development
projects for luxury hotels and resorts and producing events to
In my " spare" time, I work with our professional association,
raise money for Wine to Water, play with my grandchildren, catch
plays, concerts and festivals, and dance as much as I can!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Building relationships and connecting people with each other. I
have great empathy and a high level of " emotional intelligence"
and people trust me.
Cooking brings out my creativity!

On TV:" Justified" and all of its actors- they are great! Hooked on
binge watching some great drama on Netflix and cable. Most
recently- Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Friday Night Lights, Game
of Thrones.... Guilty secret? " Nashville" ! Makes me want to
I love to read and usually have several books going at one time.
Literary fiction and historical fiction both appeal to me and I
will occasionally read a biography and/ or non fiction on current
Most recently, 'Shantarum" by Gregory David Roberts, a story of
redemption that is exquisitely written.
I have been reading Vanity Fair cover to cover for years, as a
matter of discipline and to sharpen my understanding of the world
of art, culture, politics and entertainment.
I also love to go to the movies, plays and concerts....My all time
favorite films would include the original "Parenthood", the movie
version of "Chicago," and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"- and for
that matter anything the Coen Brothers touches! I tend toward
independent, idiosyncratic films like Wes Anderson's " Moonrise
Musically, my Pandora settings include Diana Krall, Ella
Fitzgerald, Keb Mo, Mark Knopfler, Lyle and Willie, and my new
favorite Pink Martini. No one will ever be sexier to me than The
Boss- he still rocks my world!
Food? I love it all- I have the opportunity to experience fine
dining in fabulous places around the world as part of my job, so
when I am home, I crave comfort food ( BBQ! Roasted chicken! ), and
anything I make myself . I do enjoy pretty much all cuisines, and
my favorite local restaurants include The Lantern, Oakleaf, Glass
Half Full, and any that supports local farmers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My children and grandchildren
2) Good health and the health and well being of my loved ones
3) The intimate connection to great friends
4) The comforts of home
5) Travel and exploration
All the rest are blessings, not necessities.....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sorry to say it, but I spend a lot of time thinking about work
projects, which are interesting, stimulating and fun. Lately I have
been thinking about how long and blessed my life has been.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no " typical" Friday night in my life- but during the
summer I like to walk to my local outdoor cafe to enjoy the wood
fired pizza and local musicians.
