I am an intuitive seeker of the joys of life from down to earth pleasures of a country diner to lights of Broadway to sound of lions mating on a sultry night. Now creating more loving connections to share the ride. I am intelligent, fit, nature/music loving, humorous, adventurous, occasionally offbeat or irreverent. (Shades of "Elaine" on Seinfeld color my humor).
Coexisting is an introspective heartfelt desire to access a peaceful dimension beyond this chaotic world. I try to live "in the moment." Recognize humor in life as well as the insanity. Strive to be authentic even when the culture doesn't encourage it. Tend to be a candid communicator.
Transitioned nursing to a successful sales career. Enjoy breaking through barriers of formality. I have birthed no babies, but greatly appreciate a happy& mildly dysfunctional family.
Having traveled extensively, cherish shared memories of colorful characters on the road. Love occasional getaway weekends or picnic in the splendor on top of Mt. Tam. Eclectic past episodes of serious fun...hiked New Zealand, jumped out of a plane, swam with dolphins, rafted the Grand Canyon, safaried in Africa, Turkey,Bali. Activities generally simpler these days but plan to hang glide for next birthday.
About the one I'm looking for...
You have a rich interior life and an aesthetic edge, but definitely the ability to crack yourself up. I appreciate an engaging conversational partner who is capable of passion, romance, and joy. Thrilling to be with someone who shares the initiative to plan and organize leisure. I fantasize about more spontaneity.
Envisioning a companion to explore beyond the obvious, arts, hiking, white water rafting, travel, and ?? Spectator sports...no-o-o-o-t so much.
I am in synch with someone who is young at heart, kind, social, physically fit, worldly, attractive, financially secure, and self aware (as much as any of us can be!)
I am a Visual Virgo for better or for worse. Not a fan of much facial hair. Skin feels much more inviting. No rugburn. Turn on is a fit physique with a genuine bright smile that lights up your eyes. A great spirit who makes me laugh...the best!! I'm sure you've heard that one a few times, but it's oh so seductive and true.
I am not looking for a clone, but hopefully our values guide us in a similar direction. I have found meditation to ground and expand my inner life and love. If we don't share that aspect, please be understanding of what it contributes to my life.
I'd just like to add...
More than anything I am ready to greet the day with my best friend and lover. If we are lucky, we will be members of that exclusive club who share each day with their best friend. One of those members put it this way..."Every time I hear the key in the door, I know the party's about to start."
No matter what the world is up to, my vision in this "third act" is that the best is yet to come. Thanks for hanging in there through a detailed wish list. If this feels familiar, I look forward to meeting you!
I am a volunteer at a fabulous local theatre.
Live performances of all kinds.
TV Shows..The Daily Show, Mad Men, Homeland, Modern Family, Real Time with Bill Maher, PBS Frontline for documentaries. From the past SNL,Frasier, Seinfeld, Oprah, Sopranos, Sex in the City.
Most music except C&W. Nostalgic about Bruce Springsteen/James Taylor. Love to explore "world" music, especially Middle Eastern and Indian and anything with soul. Classics like Sinatra. Traditional Hawaiian transports me to the islands that I love.
All food created with care.. Korean least favorite.
One favorite book comes to mind...The Kite Runner
How can I make the best use of these remaining years? .
Appreciating what is happening in the moment.
Lucky to live in the BayArea for so much talent and beauty to be experienced. Only limited by the imagination.
On an extra note....icing on the cake if you enjoy HAWAII! Love the Big Island where I have friends.
