My self-summary
Taste Luxury Humor.
I believe that it’s best to live with the intention to learn each day and hope to be admired by strangers for the chance to make them smile.
Sincerity and integrity never go out of style.
I am as comfortable in black tie and a pretty dress as I am to get dirt under my nails and sand between my toes. You can take me home and leave me alone with your mother; just as long as she doesn't know all my secrets and indulgences, nor yours.
Sometimes the most difficult thing to do is to sit still and be quiet. I am looking for someone to do exactly that and more.
What I’m doing with my life
Wandering the streets of New York just to experience what it may bring that day. Learning from others. Listening. Watching birds. Baking pies at 2 a.m. Making big brunches because there are only 2 days to the weekend. Dressing for dinner. Yoga. I am an active student of the everyday. I am an anthropologist in how I observe, understand and share my experiences. ...but that's not what pays the bills. My 9-5 is within the world of marketing.
I’m really good at
I love, love, love cooking. To me it is an art, science and meditation. I love the planning of a meal, shopping for ingredients, the fuss in the kitchen and sharing the results with others. I thought about going to cooking school a few times, but it wasn't the right direction for me. I hope you won’t mind the occasional night at home to enjoy the toils of the kitchen, even better if you join me in the kitchen.
I am good a lazing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps that I am laughing at myself... I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I haven't been reading much since my commute vaporized. I still have to finish Mole People. Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud has a terrific story and the design of this book is another joy. The Rand McNally road atlas is longstanding favorite.
Art: Serra. Gaudi. fingerpainting.
Music: Oy. I am all over the place. Yeah, yeah Pandora. But there are other resources in the interweb. I like Mpr.org's The Current.
Food: My favorites won't fit into this box. I get lost uncovering things in the USQ green market. I spend full paychecks at Eataly (on mysterious items that I don't know and can't pronounce). Thanksgiving at any time of year. Christmas dinner. I extol the broccoli at ABC Kitchen. Bourbon taste better while at the lane at Brooklyn Bowl. I remain suspicious of walnuts, eel, eggs that are not properly baked into things, and fiddlehead ferns. I admit to a love of pricey pizza at Co., mixology and tasting menus; but the simplicity of cinnamon toast and a glass of milk is often spot on.
Six things I could never do without
I would hate to lose my sight. I am bit hyper active in taking in details of everything around me.
My yoga practice has kept my mind, body and soul in focus (and helps to keep my like of good food from showing up here...and there...)
Every task takes the proper tools. I would be an unhappy mess without my chef's knife and like having a real camera (not just that other feature to my phone).
Space to wander.
That's 5. I like to leave options and possibilities open for a 6th.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the story lines of the people that live around me based upon glimpsing their windows.
...my alter ego on a reality TV show.
...after getting a dining table to seat 6, I like to imagine the perfect 5 people (living or dead) to invite for a dinner.
Sometimes the closest places can show you the most. I am so very lucky to live close to the High Line and visit often to catch the ever changing layers of plantings. Central Park is best experienced walking from one side to another. MoMA is wonderful, but I have to get back to PS1, soon. The Hudson Valley. Northern CA. MN because it's unapologetically beautiful. Wandering through D'Orsay. Experiencing Rome and Florence with 3x/day gelato tastings. I would to go to Porto again...and not have food poisoning this time. the Tate Modern. My visit to South Africa was the most variable and vibrant place I have ever experienced. I must return to Mexico City.
My couch is lovely.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every Friday night is not typical. My Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays often resemble other peoples' Fridays. I don't feel obligated to make Friday any different than the rest of the days, and sometimes like to end the work week with a re-set at home. There is nothing like the luxury of making a great meal and putting the evening's soundtrack on shuffle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
will (hopefully) be directly to you; not to all on a website.
and I think my screen name is strange. (no, my name isn't Eve.)
You should message me if
You feel compelled to do so.

I lived, loved, and learned. New friends and passing pleasure is fun; but I know what I am wanting and I am making a sincere attempt to find it: a relationship for the long term, a partner for the infinite.
With that in mind, I am also not looking for a penpal, but someone sincere to meet up without dozens of volleys of messages.
The two of us
