My self-summary
A friend, a lover, a playmate—not necessary in that order—this SJF is looking for a good man: funny, sweet, intellectual. We’ll converge our past solitary lives and dream together of the Revolution that never happened, or make love all day as if we were kids again. I’ll have my eyes closed to imagine I am still young and beautiful and we will hold hands because I fall down often when I dream of flying. I shall take care of all your earthly needs and desires and you shall cook French crepes and read fairy tales, poetry, NYRB, and science mags to me.

I am not a member currently, can't see any "likes."

N.B. Something weird is happening with the algorithms and the Robots in charge here in the past few months. I get a few posts a day from men who claim to be very serious christians. Please, do set your cybersails someplace else. If you just glance to the right of this page, you will see that I am an ATHEIST and "it's important." Atheism is not a religion, and if you insist that it is all a matter of my system of beliefs, as many of you do, then OK, I do *believe that the Church has committed more crimes against humanity than all other institutionalized religions combined. Incidentally, the same visitors who claim to be god-fearing also seem to have no idea about the sentence structure or the need for punctuation, not even mentioning spelling. I strongly suspect they might have voted for the upcoming president too. Do go away, pls. As my bubby used to say, oy vey ist mir. . .

What I’m doing with my life
Apart from becoming a great coloratura soprano (see below), I would like to be famous at something else too.
I also read, write, attend concerts, theater, and political events. I spend time with my kids, knit (a lot), cross-country ski, and mountain bike in beautiful forests in October.
I am politically active and involved in community building. I'm interested in the arts, growing food and foraging for it in the woods, world history, anthropology, sciences, philosophy, and a ton of other things.
I love big cities, tram noise, great buildings that are eye candy, huge public spaces, and grand rivers dressed in granite. 2 years ago I was in Barcelona. I wasn't that impressed with the city itself, but Gaudi definitely made my head spin (see the pictures in his park).
I’m really good at
Well, knitting of course, I am currently involved in four different projects--all very colourful!
Thinking also sometimes works, but not always. I used to be very cerebral, but it dawned on me that thinking doesn't always look good on a woman. Now I'm trying to learn to walk in high heels.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think: my gender, my age, my hight, my clothes--hmm, my looks,
Oh, this is such a lame question.
Can I apply for a part-time position designing the questions on dating sites?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all music except for the types that have no rhyme or reason (like the improvisational jazz that goes on forever). I love ALL folk music and most classical music, especially from the 18th century. I was raised on a diet of perfect ballet, so I am very fond of it too. I LOVE Alvin Ailey. I read a lot of nonfiction, but would love to change this habit. I love the real French crepes, if I can find them.

The six things I could never do without
Music, ideas, sleep, fresh air, my kids, trees, good food (especially deserts).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-- WHAT MAKES A LIFE WELL-LIVED. A life spent in the service to Humanity. Not in self indulgent "self-improvement," meditation, prayer, or own health obsession.
-- How majestically beautiful the world is in the summer.
--That we are the strangest and the most magnificent species on earth. If only we just stopped killing each other. . .
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretending I'm a great singer with a beautiful and powerful voice (on other days, uhh, I cannot produce a single proper note).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I look soooo much better in pictures; but, please, don't tell anyone.
You should message me if
You are someone intellectually challenging, accomplished, urbane, self-aware, and interested in progressive politics (no religion, pls). I'm looking for wisdom, gentleness, and emotional maturity. I seek a worldly man I can learn from; someone who appreciates knowledge and intelligence and is in good enough physical shape to beat me in a game of badminton (or at least make it a challenge). Above all, I want someone to teach me, cook for me, listen to me, and keep me all dazzled and warm and off life support well into my nineties.
