I am a warm person, and touch is essential. I have loved greatly and have not lost my belief in endless possibilities. I was voted "most optimistic" in my high school class, and it has proven to be true.....!
I love the wildness and beauty of nature. Being at the ocean can bring me to tears, as can many other things.
It would be delightful to spend time with a compatible companion exploring more of California, and the world.
Art was my first love, and I'm back to it. I'm fortunate to have a studio, and work a few hours a week at a creative space for children and their families.
Exercise is vital to me. Pilates, riding my bike around Berkeley, hiking.
I have a good road bike I want to use more, and a kayak that hasn't been in the water nearly enough.
I enjoy the feel of a newspaper, and real books. Morning coffee is essential, and a glass of wine in the evening while looking out at the garden is perfection.
Movies: Am leaning toward more foreign films lately, they seem more honest than what's cranked out in Hollywood, though I can also enjoy a blockbuster when in the mood.
Music: A true gift from the Universe! Classical, Blues, old rock&roll, celtic, etc.....and dancing is great fun. I really enjoy live performances......and I'm learning to play the cello!
Food: Yes! Here I am in Berkeley, terrific restaurants of every ethnicity everywhere. I especially enjoy Thai, Indian, Greek, most anything. I'm not vegetarian, but almost.....Really enjoying the fresh produce around me.
