My life has been spent in creative endeavors--children's book illustrator and designer, photo editor and writer. I have one child, a young man who is successfully launched into his own career in journalism.
My tastes are eclectic---I'm a movie fanatic, love classical music, jazz--but I also have an inexplicable love for watching Judge Judy. I read a lot, and would like to meet someone who does, too. I adore children, give money to street people and love to poke around junk shops. Road trips, flea markets, book stores--yes. But I'm also up for new interests. I'm easy going and usually up for an adventure.
At this point in my life, I'm not sure what's on tap as far as romance goes. I'm always interested in what's next, and would consider friendship, partner in crime--and if love comes...cool beans.
As far as stepping out--I love something grand and exciting as much as you probably do, but I'll tell you--frankly--I can get very happy from a new pair of socks.
If I don;t see a movie every weekend, I feel deprived. I love indies, foreign (subtitles? no problem), films about ideas and character. Not too big on explosions and definitely not willing to sit through deafening gunplay. However, do have an appetite for schtoopid fart joke buddy movies from Judd Apatow, Kristen Wiig, etc. I love to laugh. Love Louis CK (my sense of humor is somewhat twisted), British humor, Larry David, etc. I'm a binger on the great series--Breaking Bad, HOmeland, Brit detectives, etc.
Like I said, I'm a reader. The New Yorker, NYTimes, mainly non-fiction. Love history, biography.
There aren't many kinds of music I don't like. I can enjoy country as much as jazz, hard rock (Alvin Lee at Woodstock!) as well as show tunes, World music, American song book, etc. I sing when I'm alone and sound EXACTLY like Katy Perry in the shower.
Food? Bring it on.
something to read, the New York Times crossword, chocolate, a good pen, my cat, and a great bakery on Sunday morning.
