My self-summary
I promise to revisit and fill out the essays as I think about things, but honesty is somewhat time-consuming. I offer, and appreciate, articulate intelligence, kindness and warmth, integrity, humor, creativity, joy, playfulness, appropriately being serious, loving books and reading, writing, art, music and dance, and much, much more. I think finding someone local is important, especially with the hope of opportunities for getting to know each other.
I AM NOT A PREMIUM MEMBER, SO DO NOT KNOW WHO HAS SENT ME ANY "LIKES". Please just message if you wish to reach me. Thank you.
What I’m doing with my life
Transforming my life after loss. Was very happily married, even while devoted to caregiving while still a full time working professional for most of the time. I believe the world is so huge that there is going to be more than one love to be found. Thinking about friendship and companion first, and learning each other. Also I love learning...about people, life, and this world, as well as teaching, and sharing enthusiasm. Enjoying the gifts of life, and adding to my list of things I want to do when I'm grown up.
I’m really good at
Creativity, curiousity, communicating, splashing in the puddles of a summer rain, just not in a thunderstorm. Lots of ideas, not bored, not boring. More as we get to know each other.
The first things people usually notice about me
A sunny smile, warm personality, wit, and a twinkle in my eye. I always wished I knew how to wink, as that seems to fit my personality, but have yet to learn how. Or how to whistle. I look tall for my height. As for keeping in shape, I exercise and dance (love moving to music), but the shape I'm in is that of a little round apple. If age matters, I am actually 71.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How does a former librarian, storyteller, artist, writer, teacher, and dancer, answer this? Too many books to list, but especially enjoy historical fiction, classic science fiction, and most classics and mythology.
Movies...I prefer comedies with class, musicals, (not violence, not horror, or gore), science fiction....including Star Trek, etc.
Shows....Seldom watch TV...except JEOPARDY, SUNDAY MORNING, DOC MARTIN, more from PBS, sometimes BIG BANG THEORY, ..As for live theatre (which I love)....similar likes as previous categories, as well as dance...most kinds.
Music....50s, 60s , oldies Rock, classical..esp Baroque, and Tchaikovsky , classical guitar, symphonic, anything danceable, including world and ethnic, Latin, Klezmer, mid-eastern, Blues, ragtime, more.
Food...seafood and ethnic are favorites. So far not very into Southern or French cooking.
Six things I could never do without
Art, music, reading, writing, live theater, dance, humor...and loving and being loved (ok...that's 9...but math is not on this list).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The gift that life is.....and finding more ways to enjoy it.
On a typical Friday night I am
"Typical" doesn't really exist. Anything from reading to going out with friends, or playing Wordgames, or whatever seems interesting, including making a good chicken soup on a cold winter day, while lovely music plays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Widowed after a long, happy, marriage. I know what love is and perhaps can find it again, starting with friendship. After many years of caregiving, this could be a new day.
You should message me if
Anything I say, resonates with you.
