My self-summary
The following needs to be updated. I'm a poet/writer/teacher/editor who paints, sculpts, & is passionate about literature, independent and foreign films, travel, weight lifting, basketball (NBA-- love of finely sculpted arms, thugs moving w/ grace), & calm. I'm urban, fiery & cultured. I don't like lazy minds or bodies. I'm assertive and direct; I try to communicate openly & I'm a fantastic listener. I'm inquisitive & analytical. I give selflessly to those I love, & I love intensely. I'm also especially sweet.

I'd like to meet an articulate, urban intellectual who reads a lot (pop fiction does not count) and who loves & has time/funds to travel. Be sensitive, introspective, witty, creative, dynamic, sensual. I'd like a man who does not need to be coddled & who appreciates a strong woman. I need someone who's trusting & entirely trustworthy. Be goofy enough to make me laugh at truly inappropriate moments. I'm attracted to men who are writers, readers, thinkers or artists rather than he-men who can out bench press me. Out! Out! Begone with the following: players, flakes, fiends (drug), boy toys (hmm?), SUV-driving suburbanites, Republicans, & dolts. Please, be a gentleman.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring & creating. Wandering in this weird new zone where it snows. Wondering why I'm here & who might help me figure it out.

writing

spoiling my dog

traveling on my own (solo travel thus far: Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Vienna, Spain,

Rubbing my pup's belly.

Someone who intuively understands me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Living overseas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lifting at the gym because I have the damn place almost entirely to myself, which I quite like.
You should message me if
You have actually read my bit above & fit the gist.

You read & know the difference between literature & schlock.

You are not seeking a hipster or hippie chick.
