My self-summary
For all the good guys: Those who are taking the time to read this profile, I salute you and here's a little bit from yours truly --

Artist, feminist and feminine. Voted high school class clown but can be quite shy too.

Fav things to do: Writing with my laptop while sipping coffee in my neighborhood cafe, cycling along the waterfront, people watching, spending Saturday morning in bed reading. I guess I am a typical New Yorker.

I try to be kind in my daily interactions -- One never knows what stories and sorrows the stranger on the street is carrying.

My mantra is:
"Life is short, and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind."

~Henri-Frederic Amiel~
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, cycling, working, tinkering, brunching with friends. I am on a college textbook kick --reading reading reading
I’m really good at
Telling funny stories and naming that tune. I am also very 'crafty'...I can take the ugliest chair in the universe and make it pretty.
The first things people usually notice about me
That 'Mona Lisa' smile?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: The 400 Blows is my all time high.

Other Top Movies: The Tree of the Wooden Clogs, Rear Window, The Shop Around The Corner, Stranger Than Fiction, Marty, Gosford Park, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Full Monty, Fanny and Alexander, The Tin Drum, My Life As A Dog and classic horror/suspense.

TV: It's my opinion that The Andy Griffith Show was one of the finest shows ever on television...seriously.

Three of the best albums ever made: Zimbabwe Frontline Vol. 1, Buena Vista Social Club, Tito Puente Greatest Hits. First album I ever bought (with my allowance) was Jimi Hendrix -- Are You Experienced

Last read Ship of Fools -- Currently reading Willa Cather Four Great Novels --- I also collect classic children's books

Food: All seafood, cafe au lait (you know, the kind that is served in a bowl) and a homemade sticky bun. Greek, Italian, New Mexican (Sopapillas). Fresh raspberries, grilled salmon, every vegetable under the sun. Garlic. Vietnamese, Japanese, Ethiopian...

Are you still here? That's dedication!
The six things I could never do without
A book, some music, my cats, reading glasses, social interaction and my bicycle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food - writing ideas - what's for breakfast - what movie to see - what's the meaning of it all - what's for lunch - why people can't stop texting for one minute - what's for dinner...
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing a movie marathon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bunnies freak me out.
You should message me if
You're a stand up guy. You are willing to string a few sentences together because you're serious about meeting someone and well...it's just good manners.

I wish everyone well in his (or her) search for romance (or at least coffee with a nice person).
