My self-summary
If you are a smoker, a hunter or a Trump supporter, I am not going to respond. Have a good life, we are not a match. And please be able to write at least one sentence that doesn't look like robo-text.

I'm a pescatarian - seafood but no animal products - so if you are a devout meat-eater, it's not going to be possible. You will think it doesn't matter, but eventually it will. If, on the other hand, you are vegetarian or vegan, it's only a matter of time before I cross over completely.

I'm not good at brevity. I have a dry, rather quiet sense of humor, am young at heart though feeling older of late. I have stayed away from dating for a long time now - so this is both exciting and anxiety provoking. Am dealing with some grief, just had to put down my sweet, beautiful, darling Aussie, Maggie (photo below).

En marche.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm busier than when I first signed up, but will make time for the right person. Retired paralegal, work part-time at home and do quite a bit of volunteer work. I was so devastated after the election I ran ragged for a couple of months going to meetings and demonstrations but for the long run decided to channel that angst into trying to help just one at a time.
I’m really good at
You'll find out if you get to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Eclectic. Currently reading Born a Crime (Trevor Noah) and Drift (Rachel Maddow) as well as Mr. Monkey, a silly New York novel that is strangely comforting (I'm from New York!). Love a good disaster movie, from the sublime Testament to the ridiculous Day After Tomorrow. Love most movies from trash to gems, depends how weary I am. Rarely get to an actual movie theater, would love that if we manage to connect.

Transfixed by Better Call Saul - even more than Breaking Bad, despite its brilliance. Also fond of Twin Peaks - and Lost, How to Get Away with Murder and others. I just love great writing, directing, ensemble acting, and am finding more of it in recent years on TV than elsewhere.

Sustained of late by the wise witnesses - Trevor Noah, Samantha Bee, Steven Colbert, Rachel - you know who they are.

Haven't been to the theater in decades, but used to love old Broadway musicals. Love classical music from Bach to the Romantics. Nostalgic for folk-rolk, still cry for Phil Ochs. Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Dylan, the Doors, the Beatles. Love Leonard Cohen and Rufus Wainwright, whose Hallelujah with that choir in Canada gave me goosebumps.

Dealt with food above. Sushi, Thai, Indian are favorites.
Six things I could never do without
Love, close friends and beloved animal companions. Our democracy, imperfect as it is but in such extreme danger now. Gardein and Boca crumbles and veggie burgers. Almond milk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's going to happen to us. Beyond the dementia of the buffoon who became our president is there any limit to the callousness and cruelty of McConnell, Ryan and company? Is there someone out there who can take me in their arms and make me forget all this for a while?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching a movie or working. Maybe some day I will be spending the evening with you.
You should message me if
You would like to know more and might have some interest in a full-figured woman who would love to find someone to wander this strange path with.
The two of us
