My self-summary
I hope to be head over heels and land on my feet, with an active, thoughtful, interested and interesting woman, sporting a welcoming smile, in an affectionate, supportive and playful relationship. I am still a romantic. I am looking for a partner to share adventures, mutual interests, the many opportunities in the Bay Area, and moments at home for the years to come.

Recently, I moved back to California. I wanted to be near family and this area was calling to me. I grew up in Marin but migrated East after college. Like Garrison Keillor I Am Happy to be Here. I am closer with my sister and nephew, enjoy new friends, bike trails, the great food, and the many attractions. The scenery is beautiful wherever I travel.

Others find me to be cheerful, intelligent, thoughtful, relaxed, playful, and attentive. I am open-minded and liberal, humble yet assertive. I fly along well below my age, keeping fit and young at heart. I have learned from my experiences. I sum, the Golden Rule and listening and understanding before responding. In relationships I am easy to be with, always looking for the fairest solution to a problem and a way to move forward.

Outside I bike, hike, sail, working in the garden. I like diving to 50 ft to look at sponges and fish or ski blue square slopes. I dance...(Have tux. Will travel.), Argentine Tango is my favorite though I like swing and ballroom dancing too. I race sailboats but also like day sailing or sailing to destinations, maybe to stay overnight. I am the one with the guide book but not in a car. Favorite trips have been cycling through Wales and sailing in Greece. I have many places picked out where I would like to charter a sailboat. Otherwise, I enjoy theatre, films (especially foreign, indie, unusual), museums. I play golf, enjoy camping, and other outdoor pursuits. I am adventurous about food and enjoy cooking. Cooking a meal with a friend is as enjoyable as going out to a restaurant.

Ultimately, it’s about an emotional connection, attraction, and sharing and making a life together. It would be great to have an enthusiastic and adventurous travel companion, literally, metaphorically.

I appreciate an email and then to talk.
What I’m doing with my life
Fixing my house and garden, planning on working part time, making friends, thinking about the next phase of my life. This includes being involved in volunteer or community group projects, in contrast to the solo nature of my profession. Learning Spanish.

Very musical, dance, paint a house, prune trees. Listening, putting others at ease. Finding solutions life's challenges or relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, smile

Books: History, Martin Cruz Smith, John Updike, Alice Monro, Wallace Stegner, Alice McDermott, Anna Quinlan. Just now I am reading biographies of Ben Franklin and John Adams simultaneously, with of course their view of each other.
I still like holding a newspaper..New York Times or The Economist
I like classical music, blues, big band sounds, tango to dance. I like Cole Porter songs, Nat Cole, Eva Cassidy, and there is a Diana Krall CD that seems to stay in the player.
I like indie and foreign films; I check out old movies from the library. I have binged on past seasons of Mad Men, the British version of House of Cards, Downton Abbey
I like almost any cuisine, but draw the line at okra. The food in the Bay Area is great, whether from the stores or in restaurants.
Six things I could never do without
Morning coffee is the reason to go to bed at night. Music, books, art, good food. Friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make my house and garden a great place to live, my new friends, how I want to live the next phase of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am out dancing at a favorite milonga every Friday. Other nights I have been to the Marin symphony, community theatre, a walk along the ridge at dusk, out to dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wait until I find out if you play nice....
You should message me if
