My self-summary
City girl with liberal politics living in preppie suburb (not always such a good fit). Right now I’ve got a college age daughter, who is very nice, but I’m told that could change at any moment. I was widowed several years ago, after 20 year marriage to a loyal and loving husband. I’m the product of some very good schools. I run a design business and I care a lot about the purpose of life, enough to take time out for inner thought. I’m open to new ideas, flexible about my plans, would like to start the next chapter.
What I’m doing with my life
It was always clear that I would have a career in the arts, we just never knew what it was. Several professional incarnations, including writing, drawing, painting, publishing, and now finally something that pays. Am gainfully self-employed, and I get to talk to architects and plumbers.
I’m really good at
I’m extremely good at staying calm and reasonable when dealing with impossible people or situations; then lose my marbles when a warning light comes on on the dashboard.
The first things people usually notice about me
The long stride, the purposeful air, the goofy remark.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently read books: A few books about the Transcendalists: Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Alcott -- this period just fascinates me. Behind the Beautiful Forevers. I love memoirs. Just Kids, the Patti Smith memoir (if you lived in Brooklyn then, you have to read it). Eating in America by Waverly Root; The Russian Debutante’s Handbook by Gary Shteyngart; love Ian McEwan; really really tried to get through Oran Pahmuk. Periodicals like New Yorker, Tricycle, NY Times.

Music: Miles, Getz, Evans, Jarrett; Van Morrison; Tom Waits and the Kronos Quartet; Bach Cello Concertos.

Food: Bronzino, aioli, arrugula, local potatoes, oysters, Tarte Tatin. Chicken is so boring, unless you cook it the way the Italians do. Anything that carmelizes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All women spend hours obsessing about their looks and advancing age. The rest of the time I feel great.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking about sushi. Or the Tarry Lodge in Westport.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was kicked out of my Women's Empowerment Workshop for being too outspoken.
You should message me if
If you have a big appetite for life and ideas, if you’re smart and creative and complicated and even difficult, that could work. Also if you’re taller than I am, and have a manly presence.

PS -- I can't see "likes". So if you like, drop me a line.
The two of us
