My self-summary
"Kissing is like drinking salted water: you drink and your thirst increases." Chinese Proverb

NOTE: I am currently living in Sydney, Australia. Yes, Australia. Glitch here and unable to close this profile. Actually though I'm kinda glad because the possibility of moving back to the Bay Area may be on the table for me. And now, on to the main course:

I am open-minded, sensual woman who loves the arts....and...

There are too many things in life that are middle of the road...Love should not be one of them. And life too short to be with someone who isn't quite "right", doesn't make you think, doesn't challenge you, doesn't make your heart race when he/she touches you, allows you to be less than you can be.If you write me, tell me more about who you are, what matters when two are trying to determine if they are a good life connect. Make sense?
I'm open and available, what I think/feel rarely doesn't make it to words. I Believe adamantly unfiltered communication is key to remarkable intimacy between a man & woman, really knowing who the other is, feelings, thoughts, wants & needs - all on the table. I believe that's foundation for "two" staying interested, hot, fascinated, and connect through the years. There is dyed-in-the-wool romantic in me. I wear my feelings easily like an old denim shirt. I'm very emotionally inclined. The more we share here, the better our questions and decisions will be, but that requires us to up. Honesty is not easy, but as two try to figure one another out at this point where words are everything, we need to be forthcoming:
I hope your 'kid' is alive and well in you. We can stand laughing so hard at something only we two know.. Racing out into a summer downpour, kissing while thunder peals over head. Yes, my kid is very definitely alive and looking for a (play)mate to share all the silliness we still have inside.
Talk about anything/everything on your mind, I will. If I begin to muse at 3 am, wrap me in your arms and I'll pull you close, skin-to-skin, feeling so safe, and listen while I vent my soul. Do the same, I need to hear you talk of your dreams as well. I'm an excellent listener. Wrapped in one another - watching the moon dwarf the stars that dare to approach as the darkness gives way to the pearly-pinkness of dawn, a great time to snuggle close and sleep again. I need the one who truly GET'S ME (and I will "get you", inside & out as well).
If anything I've said here makes you aware of what is missing, of what you'd like then it would be lovely to hear from you.
I’m really good at
I like being 'the other half'...just not attached at the hip. Partner ship, relationship...tired of it just being me. I'm creative when it comes to cooking, one of my passions. One of my other passions is...passion. I'm better at shopping for others than for myself. Oh and I can parallel park like no one's business!
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, I think. Truth: depending on my mood, my eyes go from turquoise to blue-gray....can be pretty dramatic even to myself. And, I'm told quite often my laugh is contagious.

The six things I could never do without
Touching and intimacy (non-physical and physical),comfy clothes, hope, humor, silently holding hands (words are not always necessary, are they?).
Not the usual list of 'air, water...etc' but after all, those are a given, aren't they?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is the silliest question.
You should message me if
you're looking for a healthy relationship that includes having a partner in crime, giggles and snicks, if you are healthy in mind, body and spirit and know what that means; if you are secure enough to be completely open and intimate,if you communicate openly and honestly; if you're searching for pure joy, living in the moment as well as planning a future..message me if you are looking for a loving relationship, the boundaries of which to be determined by us.
