Single Jewish female seeking companionship, and, potentially, a long-term relationship. Having successfully raised my wonderful children, (who have scattered far and wide), I am now enjoying the freedom and flexibility to have new priorities and adventures. I am a doer and a thinker. I love to laugh ( tend to be playful), but can be serious when called for. I try to stay aware of the political climate (read the WSJ most days) and believe it's important to do our part to try and make the world a better place. I enjoy gardening, cooking, good conversation, hiking and biking, places near water (occasional fishing!) and all things "city" (NYC, Chicago, theater, symphony, bistros and BYOs, foreign films, and dance)...I tend to be visual...appreciate intention and esthetics. I also enjoy the parts of life you can experience and savor with your eyes closed! Hoping to share local simple pleasures as well as travel with someone special. Ulitmately, I hope to 'share the journey' with someone in a committed relationship, wherein each can bring out the best in the other.
