My self-summary
Conversation, first and foremost. I want and need someone with whom conversation never stops. That should be self explanatory. None of this "How are you today?" every day or "Your profile is long. I might finish reading it if we start talking." Just start talking.

I've been on this site off and on for years. I keep thinking I'll overhaul my profile, but regardless of life changes, my profile describes the woman that I am inside. So I edit. Things change and I change, but I am still me inside.

I could say that I'm passionate and empathetic to a fault, and that would be true, but I don't know why it matters anymore sometimes.

I love playing piano and writing, and certain bits of writing. Life just gets in the way quite a bit.

I will say that life is a journey . . .and yes, I'm like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

I should really, really write that book.

I did finally get around to looking up the Meyers Briggs test.
I am ISFJ - The Defender. Ok, then. I suppose I am. Too much, many times.
What I’m doing with my life
"Don't make something simple and efficient when you can make it strange and wonderful."

I keep putting one foot in front of the other while I marvel at where life takes me. I work, eat (sometimes), sleep (sometimes), work harder, and generally try to give my girls the best life I can make for them.
I’m really good at
Writing and music, although both of them have gotten away from me in the hustle and bustle of life. I have written intense poetry and shallow articles. I have dabbled in lots of instrumental pursuits in my lifetime, but piano has always been my favorite. Amazingly, since I'm an introvert at heart, I've discovered that I'm also a good "people person." My customers know me and love me. And I suppose I should also add that I'm really good at my job. It takes up most of my life, after all.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent which is not an accent? My petite frame, or my favorite unique outfits? My red glasses are a hit. (I'm glad I let that girl talk me into them.) And even on a bad day, people tell me I look like Sally Fields. I'll take that as a compliment. Outside of appearances, I am honest to a fault and completely open. I often understand people even more than they understand themselves.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I wish I could say I read anymore, but once upon a time I read voraciously - Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Edgar Allen Poe . . .the classics nobody else likes. And poetry. Movies I still do - the same ones over and over, usually, mostly because I have all the words memorized - Breakfast at Tiffanys, Pulp Fiction, 10 Things I Hate About You, Payback, Phone Booth, Run Lola Run . . .Music never dies - Van Morrison, Jason Mraz, Lisa Loeb, Fleetwood Mac, Live, Pearl Jam (ok, that list is endless. I like a lot of classic rock, though.) I really like Gotye, Mumford and Sons, and outside of mainstream, Emilie Autumn has become my favorite because she is a poet, a bit dark, and thinks like me. My taste varies, including music from just about every genre except rap - can't think of one rap song I like, although after I heard the Thrift Shop song a million times, it started to grow on me. As far as food goes - Mexican and Italian. And a good Chicken Fried Steak. :)
Six things I could never do without
My girls . . .yes, that's only two. Think I've done without pretty much everything else at some point in life, anyway

Let's make that three . . .a few years ago I acquired a Pomeranian. I call her my "$4000 Dog." We bought her from a semi-neighbor who needed to pay her electric bill, and within a week the poor doggie snapped her leg in half. After I carried Chloe around in a snugglie and sought out soft grass for her to walk on, (and once a horrible neighbor turned the sprinkler on just as we were walking there) . . .and had to keep her caged up, she became the glue to my puzzle. She had better stick around and grow old with me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is the meaning of life? Seriously, It makes no sense. It's certainly not about attending church or Karma. But life has a way of working in patterns. Although I always seem to see the timing in retrospect, everyone and everything has its place and its reason. At least I need to believe so.
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to music, making it, or writing. Making a decent dinner when there is actually time to do so. And numerous things on the computer, of course. It's addictive - especially Texas Holdem. Lately I'm watching a lot of Grey's Anatomy. Supernatural is out on Netflix again (Yay), so I'm about to start that. I'd rather be shooting a game of pool, but I'm afraid I'm a bit rusty now. 40 years old . . .really? Where did the years go? It seems like yesterday that I used to enjoy going out quite often.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's not a lot that's private at this point in my life. People seem to want to know everything and share it with everyone they know. But I don't really care. I'm an open book.
You should message me if
You are not married or separated . . .You are neither an atheist nor an avid church goer. You haven't lived in a bubble all these years . . .you don't quite fit in with the world you reside in . . .you can spell, punctuate, and have something insightful and meaningful to say. "You're beautiful" does not count. I had a creepy old hobo tell me that once, as he followed me back to my office.
The two of us
