A city girl who loves the country and has ended up in suburbia for the convenience of being employed (how did that happen?) Read widely fiction, poetry, articles, internet and non-fiction and always happy to browse and talk books. I also write. Wish more of it was not for work. I love to learn. Please teach me something! Adore a good movie but don't go often enough or rent them regularly (but I should). I enjoy listening to music, world music, Jewish music, classical, folk, and have been known to sing for my supper or in the shower. While I like eating out, cooking is a passion - my repertoire includes vegetarian delights, baking, desserts and trying out ethnic cuisines. You might catch me at a storytelling event, a play, a concert, visiting a gallery, museum, craft and antique shopping, or enjoying a market or festival. Or perhaps we have passed on the road when I have gone for a country drive? For exercise I love to hike and swim and (second-best) do take myself off to the gym for a class or a workout. I have an animal family -- small dog and cat -- who are affectionate, sweet and lots of fun to play with! Ironically I am shy. Ask me about the irony when we finally meet! My friends describe me as quirky, eclectic, arty, sweet (really?!!!) and fun. People are suprised when they learn what I do. Also when they learn my age I have held up well over the years apparantly! Enjoy activity and company but also relish the quiet. So.... do we have something in common?
