My self-summary
I'm really not a total ditz; I couldn't find any username that wasn't already taken (and I do love daffodils).
What I’m doing with my life
My 3 sons are grown and I'm enjoying all my new-found free time! I have a very busy legal practice but I try to keep my weekends free for fun. I love all types of music (from classical to rock or Motown). I usually spend weekends going to concerts, theater, museums, daytrips, Nationals games, hiking or biking; dancing or just hanging out and discovering fun new parts of DC. I really enjoy ballet and some opera but will understand if you don't always want to join me. I'd love to learn about the things you like to do!

I travel whenever I can (although there's never enough vacation time). I spent Christmas in Australia and New Zealand and would love to go back. I've explored many countries in Europe and would love to return or discover new places, especially Alaska, China and Antarctica. I volunteer with the National Park Service on the Mall , so have been relearning all my early American history. (It's much more fun now than it was in 3rd grade.)

I work out at least 3 times a week; sometimes can fit in a yoga class as well. While I like to stay active much of the time, it's nice sometimes to stay home and read beside the fireplace or relax out in the garden.
I’m really good at
my job as a lawyer, teaching (I was a professor at Princeton at one point), being a Mom and a good friend, finding fun and pleasure in the "little things" of life.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love almost every type of music: classical -especially Chopin, Beethoven and Mozart; rock/folk - James Taylor, Van Morrison, the Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen; Gilbert & Sullivan. I subscribe to the Shakespeare Theatre and Arena Stage and enjoy PBS dramas like Downton Abbey and Mystery. (Ok, I admit to watching Mad Men too.)

Movie favorites include Iron Lady (Meryl Streep is amazing), the Descendants (George Clooney is pretty amazing too), The Artist, Hotel Rwanda, Blood Diamonds, The Lives of Others, Dr. Zhivago, The Man Who Would be King.

Some favorite books are Wuthering Heights (I still can't imagine how a woman leading such a sheltered life in 19th century England could write a novel about such violent passions); The Radicalism of the American Revolution; Lords of Finance.

I really enjoy ethnic food from Indian to tapas, to French, Belgian and Russian.
The six things I could never do without
My three sons
Music
Fun!
Intellectual Stimulation
Keeping Active
Quiet times every so often
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can continue to contribute (and how I can find you)
On a typical Friday night I am
You never know; it depends on the night and who I'm with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open with my friends but a public website is, well, public
You should message me if
You like smart, pretty women (so I'm not too modest), and want to build a long term relationship (friendship or romantic)
