My self-summary
OK...I wrote a long-winded version of this...even I didn't like it, so here's the "summarized" version:

Curious, adventurous, not lonely or lonesome...just want to meet someone to share the things I like to do..travel, garden, movies, dance, cook, read very good books, listen to jazz, neo-soul, classical music, and whatever the two of us think is fun.

LOVE a good conversation with a person who thinks for him or her self

I'm a good and loyal friend

Baggage is a small valise (hey...we ALL have some).

Pretty much what you see is what you get

Love to learn new things and find that people who are outliers (i.e., think outside the box) are the most fun and interesting to talk with.

Generally let folks be who they wanna be...which means I won't try to change you. If I can't deal with the way you are, I'll leave you alone.

I am Friendly, Spiritual, and Tough
What I’m doing with my life
Getting on with it...enjoying it...shaping it...not wasting time pondering it.
I’m really good at
hummmm....figuring out whether I'll like a new person or not straight away. Good at gardening, cooking, writer, technology...and I'm an excellent teacher (duh-uh...it's my profession..I'd better be good at it. Other stuff..you'll have to discover as we get to know one another.
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair...don't ask me why...then they figure out I have a face under it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books...humm..for fun: The #1 Ladies Detective Agency series, anything Toni Morrison writes, Orson Scott Card's science fiction; for enlightenment: In the Light of Truth; so I stay up in the world: Obama's books, The World is Flat, Tipping Point, blink...

Movies...just saw Hero with Jet Li..superb

Music...jazz (Miles Davis, Coltrane, the smooth kind is ok), classical, neo-soul (Jill Scott, John Legend, Corinne Bailey Rae)

Food...seafood..preferably from the Blue Point Grill in Princeton on Nassau Street
Six things I could never do without


My son, my sisters and their husbands and kids and my friends and neighbors

My eyesight and hearing...so I can read and listen to music

Sunshine and flowers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is the next great adventure?
On a typical Friday night I am
Messing around on the computer, out with my friends, or at home reading a book, watching House or CSI reruns, or working on something for my classes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, if it's private, it won't be if I admit it here, now will it?
You should message me if
You're adventurous and can deal with a woman with a mind of her own.
The two of us
