My self-summary
I am warm, reliable, artistic, communicative, and a little impulsive. I spend a lot of time by myself - walking at odd hours, writing music, sitting and thinking. I like it that way, but I also treasure my connections with people, and I'm always up for a good conversation. I love all things sensory, and feel equally drawn to city and country, thought and feeling, light and dark. I love intelligence, conversation, connection, depth, wit, beauty, spontaneity, and desolate landscapes.

You are the same, in female form. Or you are totally different, but you have a hunch we might wow each other anyway.

I would like to...
...walk down quiet streets with you as dusk fades into night.
...wander art galleries together, stop for martinis, and then go listen to nutty jazz.
...read poetry to each other
...laugh like crazy
...have conversations where we look up and it's suddenly 2 am.
...go on daring adventures: some will involve exotic locales: others will take place closer to home, and will involve the obscure territories within each other and ourselves.
...share all things exotic and quotidian

My children
Kissing you (yes, I'm living without it so far, but still...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reading on the couch with my son
On a typical Friday night I am
Well gee, I'd like to be spending it with you.

Until then, I'm having drinks with friends, and if we're home, I'm the one mixing them.
You should message me if
You have a playful imagination

You run deep, psychologically and spiritually.

You are looking for something serious...or you're not, but you are a shit-ton of fun, and you know where to get good cocktails, cheap cocktails, or good cheap cocktails.
