My self-summary
I am not an easy person to describe in simple terms. There is a quote that I identify with in terms of describing myself:

"A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma." - Winston Churchill: describing Russia in 1939

For many years of my life, I struggled to happily fit in one box or another. It was only with the "wisdom of 30" that I realized I just don't fit in one box.

I am sweet and I am evil.
I am warm and I am cold.
I am friendly and I am aloof.
I am outgoing and I am shy.
I am loud and I am quiet.
I am happy and I am sad.
I am a teacher and I am a learner.
I am simple and I am complex.

If you are meeting me for the first time, you may only see one side of me. Only after you get to know me will you see both sides.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height - at 5' 10", I'm a little hard to miss.
My ability to notice details that other people miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have spent so much time reading as part of my education, that I look to pleasure reading as a form of escape. I like a lot of different types of books, but can't say I have any true favorites.

My preference for movies is a lot like books. I like a good escape that occupies my mind. I often judge a movie by the shift factor: how much do I notice I am shifting in my seat. If I don't notice my shifting, it's an engaging movie. That said, I do have a few favorite curl up on the couch and escape movies. These are: The Princess Bride, Labyrinth, Ladyhawke, and Stardust.

My taste in music is rather eclectic. My first favorite song, that I remember from childhood, was Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. What I deem my favorite now depends on my mood and how far into my music library I've delved recently. I do remember when "Video Killed the Radio Star" and still find guilty pleasure in '80s music. I also have a soft spot for late 1960s rock. I do prefer blues and swing over true jazz, and I'm really not a big fan of country.

If I had the ability to make the perfect dinner from my favorite foods it would start with Hall of Fame Garlic Bread from Max's Tavern, and the entree would be fried scallops with cocktail sauce from Summer Shack. I'm not sure I have a true favorite dessert - they're all yummy. That said, I do tend to fall into the picky eater category.
Six things I could never do without
I believe that people are resilient and can actually do quite well without many of the "needs" we are accustomed to in modern life. That being said, I wouldn't want to do without the following:

My dogs,
My husband,
My son,
My friends,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Honest, my brain rarely shuts off.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends ... Lately, it's been crashing early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That all depends on the situation and how well I know you. The better I know you, the more I'm willing to share.
You should message me if
You found some aspect of my profile interesting and wish to know more. Also, if you are looking for simple friendship or friendship that could lead to more.

I am polyamourous. I am not looking to be involved in any relationships that are happening without the knowledge and consent of all partners, so please do not contact me if you are out to cheat on your partner(s).
The two of us
