Retired literature professor with lots of energy and passion for life. Going to the gym every day keeps me fit and sane. I use my fluency in Spanish to interpret at an immigration legal clinic. I'm fond of books, theater, and art, and mad about film. I also like exploring the wonderfful TC, where I'm a relative newcomer. I walk my dog near Lake Calhoun twice a day, 365 days a week. I also travel frequently, last winter to Cuba, this spring to Spain. I am engaged and engaging, brainy and unpretentious, witty and caring. People tell me I combine girlish enthusiasm and womanly wisdom. I have a wide circle of friends of various backgrounds, but would love to find a special man, well-educated, intelligent, funny, and energetic, for adventures near and far.
