My self-summary
I can recite more Shel Silverstein poems than anyone else you know. People tell me I resemble Dr. Seuss characters. I cry watching the "Antiques Roadshow." I hate doing my hair. I could live on sandwiches and Diet Mt. Dew, but I most certainly don't. I like pickles. Dill pickles, sweet pickles, basically anything pickled... including myself on the right occasion. I'm a word junkie and alliteration is my "drug" of choice. My hearing is shot from too many rock shows and a penchant for listening to music at unhealthy decibels. I spent the first half of my life training as an elite gymnast and the second half being a total hack at artistic endeavors. I adore my pugs, art, music, life, laughter and "bed picnics." I value love, honesty, sincerity and steadfastness above all else, but I'm not nearly as serious as that makes me sound. In fact, "silly" is an adjective I hear rather frequently in reference to my demeanor. I like getting out and being active. I equally enjoy a Sunday in my pj's, curled up with my dogs for an, "ancient civilization" documentary marathon. I'm not a, "pink" girl, with the exception of pink champagne. I do my best to support local businesses. I believe pretending to be the loser can quite often make you the winner, but don't think I'm a pushover! I truly believe you get back from the universe what you put out and continue to learn from my mistakes, forgive others as well as myself, take those lessons to heart and grow.

If you read this and it strikes a chord, send me a note. I am balanced. Sane. Independent and financially stable. I am looking for someone to go to the farmer's market, to hike, to enjoy another evolved human beings company. I'm not looking to just "hook up." I'm not saying I need a committed relationship, but Iif you don't want to take to get to know me at all, move on.
What I’m doing with my life
Hiking, hiking and more hiking.
Learning. Growing. Smiling.
I’m really good at
Handstands, crosswords, amusing myself.
Discussing predynastic Egypt.

Six things I could never do without
My dogs. Laughter. Fresh, clean, high thread count sheets. Late nights filled with beautiful tunes. Sunglasses. Just the right cava, presecco or champage for the occasion. Brunch! I know. That's more than 6. Break the rules, especially ones that aren't really rules and won't land in the clink!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Huh? What? I got distracted. ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Shakin' off the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wouldn't you like to know!
You should message me if
You are Lindsey Buckingham. Call me Lindsey! You are eclectic, smart and funny. You let people merge in front of you in a long line of traffic. You don't mind dogs on the furniture. You can fathom the notion that I positively swooned over an episode of, "Deadwood" where Al Swearegen used the words, "turpitudes" and "miasmas" in the same sentence. You like a grown-up woman that can roll out of bed on the weekend, sans make-up and run out the door because she needs eggs over medium immediately. You have something to teach me because I'm ready to learn!
The two of us
