My self-summary
I like books, being other people, finding life actors like myself. People who are looking for mobility upwards, sideways and backwards. I consider myself backwards compatible with most life softwares and want to learn Linux.

I am interested in people who have great ideas or something original to say and who make me laugh. As Oscar Wilde said, "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you."

I spend my little free time reading, writing, watching movies, crocheting or on the internet invariably doing something or other. I have studied literature, foreign languages, education and enjoy academic discussions as well as the more mundane.

I quote a lot of people especially if I think their words are more salient or beautiful than my own. As my friend Cryderman wrote in a song, "I put you on a pedestal so I can't see/ It's the perfect height for you to kick me in the teeth."

I write poetry and prose and have a few blogs for those interested is my main poetry blog. It isn't the only thing I do but a major part of my life. If artistic, passionate, intense people aren't for you then we may not get along. If, however, you find women who know their own minds and have a lot to say interesting we may just hit it off. I am a good listener as well as gregarious so I enjoy conversations with all sorts of people on almost any topic

I could keep adding on here but I'd rather have a conversation with someone than have them judge me by just my profile. I could write many more things about myself but anyone worthy will be willing to put in the time to chat and become friends first.

"AND I am aware of my own attempts to ESCAPE
into other people
AND places BECAUSE they feel like parts of me
AND I know all the things that you might say
BUT I only dance now lightly through other people
AND always follow the path which leads back to me."

I am eclectic, mysterious, and cacophonous
What I’m doing with my life
Working minimum-wage-ish and tutoring always looking for better opportunities. Cooking occasionally, living with my stepchildren p/t. Enjoying being married. Not looking for romantic entanglements on OKCupid, just friends. Loving life, music, nature, my family, friends and considering adopting a child or buying a puppy, not sure which yet.
I’m really good at
reading, talking, embarrassing myself
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall. Yeah well ... I am also a fan of brightly coloured clothing too ... so the height might be the second thing that catches people's eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Philosophy of Andy Warhol; Benny and Joon; John Lennon and The Beatles; lasagne; Academic books ... anything by Harold Bloom, Joseph Campbell and Julia Kristeva. Academic interests include: foreign languages esp. French, linguistics, literature, history, art, education, semiotics, symbolism, comparative religion/theology (multi-faith based)this list could go on forever.
Six things I could never do without
paper, pen, shoes, my heart, my arrogance, my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything -- I am slightly obsessive
On a typical Friday night I am
Out on the town or asleep
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
private? what's that? ... maybe I am secretly judgmental towards conservatives, people with bigoted/ignorant world views, racists, homophobes, sexists and anyone who thinks I should be what they tell me I guess.
You should message me if
you know you want to ...
The two of us
