My self-summary
Curious, tender, irreverent, quick to laugh and slow to dance. But do insist. It's worth the effort.

I am sadly indifferent to sports but love the outdoors of most kinds. Don't own a TV. Love to cook, hike, live music. Please be a reader and have something to say about the world.

I would like to meet kindred spirits, sharing in my awe of nature, the power of ideas, the majesty of language, the mystery of the human and the humor of the divine.
What I’m doing with my life
Slowly settling in NYC after much migration. It's been 3 years here but feels like I'm just beginning.
I’m really good at
Negotiations. Clarifications. Laughing at myself.. and you. Doing 20 things at once. Leading on a dance floor. And intuiting deep, highly personal and often embarrassing thoughts.
The first things people usually notice about me
Smirky sass. World class lass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm no literary snob and have a physical love of books. The alchemy of print and glue, the satin spines and thorny fiber of book edges. The smell of weekend New York Times I drag into bed to smear on myself like a cat in heat. If you don't own book shelves, we won't get passed the first drink.

Really enjoying Adam Phillips (who should really do more Audible!) and Andrew Solomon (who should stick to print); outgrowing Jonah Lehrer but falling for the neuroscience and pop psych folks like Jonathan Haidt. Fiction-- Kafka, DeLillo, Bellow, Nabokov top of the list. Whitman, Pushkin, Bialik, Ackerman and bunch of young poets whose names I can't remember but love discovering.

Anything before 1880 and after 1940. The stuff between leaves me cold. Blues over jazz, bluegrass over rock, swing over pop. Some electronica to pump them endorphins.
Six things I could never do without
birds chirping
good coffee
hiking/running shoes
lazy Sunday mornings
the Seventh Thing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to stop thinking so much. It takes real effort to quiet the mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner, live music, opening many wine bottles with friends or quietly transcending material reality.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a feminist who loves courtship and men acting... well, manly.
You should message me if
your inner child is friends with your outer adult. If you appreciate the difference between an argument and a fight. If you are not looking for a perfect woman to fill a space in your already full life. If you have the energy, the time, the stomach for the unknown, the messy, disruptive, unpredictable miracle of building a life with another human being.
The two of us
