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