My self-summary
Life continues to amuse , fascinate and befuddle.

I haven't been active on here for a while , life (and especially work !) had gotten in the way of my search . But here I am, back again in Los Angeles and looking forward to meeting someone new.

I'm single, sane and happy. Pretty artsy by nature. I'm perhaps most happy when traveling and seeing the world. I love a good museum, and sites of antiquity . But music has been my constant joy in life, I'm never happier than when I see great live music... especially when I'm surprised by an unknown talent. I'm outgoing, somewhat gregarious, very affectionate ( With the right person) , trusting and trust worthy. I'm a great cook and love to plot elaborate dinners for friends and relatives.

A good listener, sort of my profession really. Silverlaker, quasi-hipster. Canadian by birth and nature. Gets startled every once in a while when he realizes that Los Angeles is on the ocean .... I love the great outdoors but seldom get there , I would like to change that situation.
Politically I'm very, very Liberal .. but always very happy to listen to other points of view . However, it's rather hard to convince me that the well paid don't owe their fair share to society. I'm a Lapsed Catholic, very suspicious of most organized religions. I do however believe in the boundless spirit of Humanity and it's limitless potential. I believe in the basic goodness of individuals and will treat anyone with the respect and admiration they deserve.

I'm looking for a sane , single , happy woman. Someone who is open, trustworthy and affectionate.
If that describes you, please get in touch !

The six things I could never do without
My Passport
The Night Time
My Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What it would be like to live in yet another country.
The elusiveness of simplicity.
The world and it's wonders.
The state of modern Music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to find a Silverlake restaurant not totally overrun by Hipsters.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still think that Jack Benny was the funniest person who has ever walked on the planet.
You should message me if
You have a really good sense of humor ... silliness will not be considered a character flaw.
You can deal with a small bar and loud music on occasion.
You can have a drink once in a while and not feel that you are an alcoholic.
The prospect of watching a silent film doesn't make you uncomfortable and/or prone to bouts of uncontrollable sarcastic giggling.
