My self-summary
I am comfortable with who I am, I like my life, I got over any need to be the center of attention around my eleventh birthday (long story), and I try not to take myself too seriously.

I tend to be quiet in larger crowds – not because I have nothing to say, but because I enjoy soaking in the people and noticing the subtleties in their expression and stories. I care about many things – but not stubborn about them and will normally listen to any well-articulated opinions. I do not have a set pattern to my days (where is the fun in that) – and I do believe that everything should be tried at least twice (wise advice from an old friend).

Anything else about me is best known through conversation and experience…

But for those that need a bit more details I do have interests...also I like getting lost in countries I do not know, laughing until I cry, the unexpected smiles shared with others, and a nice peaty scotch…
What I’m doing with my life
I am enjoying it.
I’m really good at
I have been told I make a killer limoncello...
The first things people usually notice about me
Nothing until it is too late... Blame all the killer ninja training from a misspent youth...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books – I enjoy reading. A lot. What I am reading changes based on the frame of mind I am in. I keep going through books looking for a good story that will make me feel the sense of wonder and happiness I felt the first time I read 100 Years of Solitude... that magic that makes you look up from the book and wish there was someone reading alongside you so you could share that sense of amazement. So if you have a book you feel about the same way, please let me know...

Films – All kinds (including Better off Dead). I love those by Peter Greenaway, anything by Stanley Kubrick (well – almost anything, I still wonder where Eyes Wide Shut came out of…), The Princess Bride (I found out there are R.O.U.Ss in the Amazon), The Usual Suspects, Reservoir Dogs, Run Lola Run, Tacones Lejanos, Kieslowski’s three colors, El Laberinto del Fauno…

Food: I am an omnivore. I do particularly love home made gnocchi and burrata.

As for music - eclectic - but I find that there is always room for a song that makes you want to stand up and dance or sing off the top of my lungs while cooking.
The six things I could never do without
I have been trying to get rid of mine. take them.

The things/people/places I would miss the most if suddenly gone are: my family, my friends, the light in different places, books, excellent meals, and something to look forward to. Definitely something to look forward to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
la imortalidad del cangrejo.

cake or death?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting back. Heels off. A scotch. Eyes closed. Smiling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bueno. Si tengo que admitir algo... Esta la vez que...

Actually. Never mind. You probably would not want to hear about that.

How sometimes you cannot tell the difference between waking life and dream life? How sometimes some dreams are so awesome you just do not want to tell the difference.
You should message me if
... if the fate of the world hangs in the balance
...if there is an impending zombie apocalypse (it would be nice to know)
...if you want to.
