"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly what's important is invisible to the eye." Me? Mischief, mystery, magic. Womanly & wise, I have many sides. Personal growth is important to me. Warm & giving, I am practical when necessary, but also a romantic craving the spiritual, spontaneous, & surprises life has to offer. I'm genuine, true to myself, loyal to others & able to listen, understand, & connect. I have worked on behalf of victims of domestic violence to help save the lives of women and children & health care reform. I admire people who are articulate, expressive & creative. Travel is my passion: Italy my favorite but many places yet to explore. The theater (Broadway especially), film (indies, foreign, & documentaries), & animals give me joy.Honesty is important (including age), the photos are about three years old..). What do I seek? True partnership (open, vulnerable, & capable of sharing ourselves & our lives: if that's not your goal, please pass). I want to explore what's inside us (not just the "gold" but also the "shadows" every person has). The way I can show you love & respect is by being who I am & providing a safe place to express all that you are. We're not mind readers, so ask for what you want & tell me what you need encourage me to do the same. Embrace my strength & accept my weaknesses. Resolve differences openly & honestly without blame, criticism, or guilt but rather understanding & compassion.You appeal if you are a man of integrity, humor, intelligence, achievement, warmth & sensitivity. You are equally at ease not only with action & activity but also reflection & thought. You earn the respect you get & attract the love you deserve.If you want to share moments of laughter & joy, tenderness & sharing, passion & calm, & yes, even pain (it's part of life), maybe we should talk.
