My self-summary
I've been on my own for a long time so I'm quite comfortable in my own skin. I don't need someone to fill a void; I need someone to complement me so that together we can be better than the sum of our parts. I really want someone to have fun with - to share my life, my loves and especially laughter.

I'm very generous and considerate in relationships - I love to cook and spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy the outdoors and travel. I'm a great travel companion. I'm pretty anti-materialism and abhor the disposable society. I tend to buy locally and small - prefer family businesses to chains even if I have to pay more. I'm an avid organic gardener and this valley is incredible for growing fresh fruits and veggies. I can't believe that everyone doesn't do it!
What I’m doing with my life
I work doing research which keeps my mind engaged. My kids are grown so my spare time is my own! I cook, garden, hike, read and ride my bike, enjoy museums and theater. I'm totally hooked on books on tape for any commuting that I do.
I’m really good at
cooking, gardening, listening, analyzing, puzzles, languages, generally a good travel partner and host of couch-surfers
The first things people usually notice about me
That I acknowledge the people in my path - make eye contact and usually smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm in a book club which is fun - I read anything from kids books to scientific journals - love to eat up books on vacations. I mostly listen to NPR and classical but love old R&R and jazz. Food - I'm a bit of a foodie - love to cook - especially fresh produce from my garden. Enjoy dining out with a great conversationalist. Charm me with your wit, please.
Six things I could never do without
siblings and my kids - way more than six
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my kids....what to plant next...the health of the planet...what's the best scrabble word for this spot...Where do I want to live next?
On a typical Friday night I am
First friday I'm usually in downtown San Jose at the open studios. Other fridays - visiting friends, family or hanging out at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
you'll have to ask me in person
You should message me if
no ifs....just message me. I'll read it. Hopefully it'll make me smile. What have you got to lose?
The two of us
