My self-summary
Delighted and enchanted with the myriad possibilities of the universe, I'm filled with wonder everyday of what we can create in our lives. I love to meet new people and hear their stories and the insights they've gained over the years.
What I’m doing with my life
Life has been a long, serendipitous romance with the Arts. Formerly, I've been a singer -- mostly Irish and British folk songs and also a children's theater actress. Now, I'm doing some creative writing again, (my college major) learning astrology, teaching myself portrait drawing and painting, playing around with some Broadway Musical theater songs, having fun acting them out, and thinking about doing some classical singing.
I'm also playing with the idea of living overseas again -- I adore Europe and I'm thinking of the Netherlands, Belgium, Paris, Prague, Budapest and St. Petersburg.
I’m really good at
Listening and empathizing. Encouraging people to follow their dreams and develop their talents. Being silly, playful and imaginative. I probably have more fun in my imagination than doing anything else!
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmmm...I don't really know what people notice at first...but this is what they tell me later....That I am cheerful and pleasant, loving and forgiving, that I am a good listener, think about interesting things and am very playful and creative. One friend who is a grade school teacher is always trying to recruit me to be a teacher too -- she thinks I'm great with young kids and make learning fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot....quirky, character driven novels like The Cornish, Deptford or Salterton trilogies by the late Robertson Davies, (we lost him too soon!). Or Moo, Horse Heaven, and A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley, who understands the hearts and idiosyncrasies of several species. Loren Eiseley whose poetic essays inspire me to ditch my artsy leanings and head for the wilderness. Tales of burning Love by Louise Erdrich about a very flawed man, (you can't help but find him appealing) and his marriages to five different women. Anything by Louise is fabulous and teaches so much about the endless desire to be an individual. Elinor Lipman: she has been compared to a modern -day Jane Austen, her dialogue is snappy and believable. I love books where I watch the characters evolve, discover things about themselves and their worlds.

I loved the movie, Inception, its link to the Orpheus and Ariadne myths. Not that you needed knowledge of that information to enjoy the movie -- it worked on so many levels, literary, mythologically, psychologically. Even the characters names: Dom, Mal....look up their roots and it reveals more of the characters intentions.
In general I love comedies -- quirky, offbeat indies. But I'll watch a period drama for the set design and costume, even if the acting are dreadful -- I'm enamored of rococo, baroque and art nouveau interior design and can never get enough of it.

I'm formerly a folk singer of the Garden variety of Irish and British folk songs, but now I am absolutely bonkers for Classical Music, instrumental, oratorio and opera. I turn on KingFM from Seattle the minute I wake up. I've pretty much gone off all other kinds of music....well, I still love Musical Theater and Big Band Jazz and Cole Porter that works for me, it's fine if you listen, (and perform) other music.

Love to eat! Pastries, salads, lobster, (our bath tub in Province Town served as a swimming pool for these guys before dinner when I was growing up). Pizza is great -- most food is wonderful, but the caveat is that it be organic, local or just good quality ingrediants and preparation, (Sorry, Denny's ).
Six things I could never do without
My recognition and sense of the ridiculous in life.

That we are all connected to one another; The recognition that we all have loved and we all have lost something.

My sense of play and creative imagination.

My sense of adventure, of possibility and my desire to learn and explore.

Cats, my kitty in particular, but I love the company of cats wherever and whenever I meet them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mysteries of the universe, metaphysical and otherwise. How human beings as a species are evolving; how we think; why we think as we do; how we are each unique and so interesting! How we can bring more love, understanding and beauty to the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
...buried under an avalanche of books...novels, Russian language, the histories of middle European countries, embroidery, doll making, pastel pencils and sketchbooks for drawing and ideas... my cat is burrowing toward me dragging supplies of belgian chocolate and a flask of shiraz....but I could be convinced to dress up to go out for champagne, or a riverboat cruise through Europe where I could practice those language skills or attend a chamber music concert...the world of culture is wide open!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat breakfast in bed almost every single day. Some people have told me this is shocking, (doesn't everybody eat breakfast in bed???). Tea and toast, my kitty purring on my lap, various books to read, paper, pens, pastel pencils to record any ideas that may emerge from my imagination, dreaming -- This is the finest luxury!
You should message me if
I'm looking for a guy who is both light-hearted and deep, who is optimistically philosophical, warm hearted, fun, curious about the world and thinks we could have a good conversation.
The two of us
