My self-summary
Here it goes : unattached and independent human who fortuitously was born to be one of them, enigmatic females ; well-rounded , though admits a minor imperfection : too smart for her own good since has got over-educated ....
Traveling and work abroad helped me to overcome most of narrow-mindedness and bigotry.
Bay Area resident since 1995 and love it because in this climate I can wear my favorite high heels and shortish skirts all year around.
The long stretches of "survival of the fittest" have taught me important lesson:" Be your-self no matter what they say".
My other favorite quote: The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.
Ursula K. Le Guin
What I’m doing with my life
Reading, learning, reading, dancing and enjoying it all together.
Omnivorous reader, got enchanted by John Galsworthy, S. Maugham and P.G. Wodehouse novels. Recently discovered unique book by P. Auster, Brooklyn follies.
Keep my-self reasonably fit via gym exercises and dancing .
I’m really good at
Listening and empathizing; analyzing and synthesizing.
Like to knit/crochet and do some embroidery too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've had no clue until recently, when my OKC date exclaimed:
"Oh, you look like European lady!" Hardly surprising since I am one of them, European women...One can take the girl out of Europe, but one can't take Europe out of the girl!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Science fiction ( R. Heinlein, P.David, Star Trek New Generation and New Frontier, Ch.Sheffield among many others) and mysteries, especially D.Francis and P.D. James.
Love " Cranford" and "Downton Abbey" on PBS. The new serial "Victoria" is totally absorbing and fascinating.
Gradually became big fan of Doctor Who ,though unlikely will evolve into real Whovian.
Music: Haendel and Bach, Verdi and Grieg, classic guitar, Astor Piazzolla and Flamenco; Peter,Paul & Mary; Leonard Cohen. Got completely smitten with Celtic Thunder at first, now cooling down, though still like them a lot.
I've never understood why "food issue" has to be included in dating profiles.
How come that what we prefer to eat defines who we would like to meet? Are we going to fight over a plate of favorite food or what?
Six things I could never do without
Books, family, friends,PBS ,dancing, classic music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Conundrums and paradoxes of life :
Given access to FTL transportation, where would I get faster - to the core of Milky Way or to the end of OKC questionnaire?

Agape and Eros, are they harmonious or antagonistic? Can both be focused on the same person and at the same time?
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Mystery on KQED... or something else equally entertaining
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bedroom Rule: use of laptop, tablet, smartphone or other mobile devices is totally prohibited AT ALL TIMES!
I mend my socks and stocking...
You should message me if
You think it might be interesting to converse
The two of us
