According to Cindy Lauper, girls just want to have fun. So does this retired literature professors 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, intellectual but 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.
