My self-summary
People are way too complicated and interesting to summarize. I would rather read the book than the book jacket. That said, I'm a complicated yet easygoing woman who likes to have fun, and I care deeply about my friends and family. I'm grateful for a lot of things in my life and always learning. Creativity infuses most aspects of my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying, creating, connecting, learning, laughing. I value time with friends and family, being outdoors, animals, creative pursuits. I really want to go to Argentina or Brazil or maybe Cuba. My job keeps me quite busy, but it doesn't define me and I hardly ever think about it when I'm not at work. Like to hike, cycle, swim, walk, run, waterski, dabble in yoga, read, see live music, sing, write, dance, yada yada. I walk my high-maintenance adopted dog at least two miles a day. She's so sweet indoors, but there are Cujo moments on our walks. I've also gotten into online music composition lately and I sing in a bossa nova band. Lots of fun!
I’m really good at
Writing, cooking and remembering people's birthdays. I make a mean lasagna and I am good at choosing the wine. Pretty good at Words with Friends and back rubs.
The first things people usually notice about me
Who knows? Maybe that I'm quick to smile/laugh?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How could one possibly list all those here? I read a lot of fiction and creative nonfiction. And poetry. I listen to the news but don't read the newspaper much. I like autobiographies and well written articles/blogs also. Movies, I like everything from the 40 year-old Virgin to Shawshank Redemption. I don't like movies about war. I could fill up nine pages with the types of food I like, but if I have to narrow it down I would say spicy food like Thai, Mexican, Sushi with wasabi, Italian, etc. would be the favorites. I am really, really into music. Blues, indie, and rock if I have to name "genres". Pretty much anything but polka or cheesy country. I've had some perfect moments listening to live music with people I care about.
Six things I could never do without
Quality time with cherished people, nature, writing, music, cute shoes, hot sauce
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, writing, social justice, new adventures, poetry, love and millions of other things
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays vary. Sometimes I'm tired and curled up on the couch or catching up on reading or chores, sometimes I'm out listening to or performing live music or having dinner with pals.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At times I can be really, really hard on myself.
You should message me if
Get in touch if there is something intriguing in my profile that suggests we might like to get to know each other better. Instant dating feels artificial to me, but I'm always open to meeting new people as friends. From there, who knows, but there has to be a friendship to build from. If there's chemistry the building can happen pretty fast :-). I love kids and would be fine with dating someone who is a parent. Also love animals and it would be hard if my partner didn't.
The two of us
