My self-summary
I recently moved to North Carolina after 30 years of living in San Francisco. Definitely still finding my way here... I thrive on and enjoy being challenged by a wide swath of cultural activities. Adore dancing- my only musical outlet- both free form and, especially, partner dancing (Cajun waltzing, anyone?). Big tennis fan (although I don't play, myself). Enjoy sharing witty repartee and long, tangential philosophical rants and raves with a partner (after all- the brain is the sexiest organ). I really miss living near the beach and hiking in Yosemite, but am eager to explore my new terrain with a kindred spirit. Exercise and yoga are important to me. I am somewhat well travelled abroad, and wish to find an adventurous partner in crime to share my wanderlust.
What I’m doing with my life
Reinventing myself. Seriously. The transition from living in S.F. to N.C. does not come with an iPhone app providing helpful directions.
I’m really good at
Throwing memorable dinner parties. Story telling. Nurturing others. The Game of Scattergories.
The first things people usually notice about me
For some bizarre reason, many people I meet for the first time often say I look familiar to them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Dickens, Dostoevsky, Yeats. People magazine, to unwind; Movies: Some Like it Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Wings of Desire; Shows: Cirque du Soleil, Sondheim musicals, Rome, Tudors, and Trueblood; Music: Grateful Dead, Leonard Cohen, The Pine Leaf Boys, Sonny Landreth, Lou Reed, Dizzy Gillespie, Gustav Mahler; Food: sushi, Bastila, oysters, duck confit, pad thai. Meyer lemons in the Winter, heirloom tomatoes in the Summer.
Six things I could never do without
New Orleans (specifically JazzFest), a valid passport, hot baths and natural springs, my eyesight, poetry, friendship
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to enhance the aesthetics of interior spaces. Daydreaming about traveling abroad again, especially to Italy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Back in San Francisco that would be attending the de Young Museum 'free Fridays' music and art events, followed by sitting with my favorite meditation group, the "Dharma Punks". There's a 'Friday Carrboro Art Walk that I've been meaning to check out...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm morbidly afraid of elevators.
I have a secret passion for reading restaurant menus online.
You should message me if
you take the time to read my profile, as I will yours... you have an open heart, even after all these years...
The two of us
