My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Latin American. I think this strongly influences what I find attractive in people.

I trained in bel canto and still sing. I also work with people at-risk and head up a foundation in honor of a prolific artist whose work reached many museums but sadly died too young.

I've had a great many adventures, professional and personal, worked in television news, documentary film, I've written for various media, and was a critic and columnist for a national magazine. Since moving to Portland, I've worked in arts administration and social services. I perform throughout the year and still write daily. Mostly, I write essays and poems and sing. I collaborate with other artists. I stalk my son on facebook, like a good Jewish mother. And I wonder if I am meant to fall in love again.

I'm funny, intense, a strong feminist with vestiges of an old world upbringing and all the contradictions that entails. I'm aware, moody, imaginative, opinionated.

I am looking for an intellectual equal with whom to share things that are meaningful to me. I hope to meet someone who will concur on what is meaningful. We're too old to pretend to like what our other likes. It's a waste of time. If you don't like what I like and you're only doing it to please me, you'll resent me. And I hate it when that happens.

I admire courage and originality. Sometimes, originality requires courage. Usually it does, in my experience. Worth it.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to contribute as much as I can, be informed, participate as fully as I can in whatever context I am placed, and stay open to possibilities for intimacy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing and writing. Connecting with people. Opening my home to friends. Making my habitat really cool. Remembering. I am an excellent rememberer. Movie dialogue, song lyrics, entire libretti, things I see, feelings. I remember things. Being present, emotionally and showing compassion. Making people laugh, mainly myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
yes! I love novels. First novels are especially intriguing: Shadow of the Wind, The Book Thief (oh, what a skill Zusak exhibited in that book! The lines were poetic and searing!). I love baroque music. I love the minimalists (Philip Glass, Nyman...) I love Puccini operas, Neruda and Edna St Vincent Millay sonnets. I love Indian and Thai and of course, Mexican and Mediterranean foods. I love picnics and outdoor concerts under the stars. Some of my favorite films are I've Heard the Mermaids Singing, Out of Africa, Live and Become, You, Me and Everyone We Know....the list is very long, as it is for novels so I'll stop here but we can talk about that. I do not like horror or sci-fi or violence or fantasy or animated. Luckily for me, there are plenty of wonderful films out there that are not any of that.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Actually, right now, I spend a lot of time thinking about what might happen next. Remember the book, Days Between Stations? (I think Erickson wrote it...maybe in the 80's?) In any case, I feel as if I am standing on the platform, waiting for a train but I don't know what train or where it's going. I have a poem in which I say
"....like a slow elevator
that stops on every floor
while you try to remember
what button to push
and who you're there to see."

This is an exciting, terrifying, delicious time. It's like adolescence except your parents are out every night.

I de-activate this profile frequently because I don't think I'm clear enough about who and how I am so, very nice men reach out and I don't know how to do this No thank you thing. If I don't say it, I feel rude. And twice when I have, I have been shocked by the missives. Evidently, acknowledging contact but saying no thank you is the new bad manners. The new good manners seems to be ignoring the person. So, if you write and I don't answer, it means that I just don't think we'd have fun together. And I'm trying to do this without hurting anyone's feelings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know my multiplication tables.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are smart and funny and interesting.

I do not initiate contact. I have heard from several men that they are flooded with unwanted messages. None of those messages will ever be from me.
