Independent and endlessly curious. Love films, reading, great cooking and can't live without music of varying eclectic tastes. Listen mostly to classical, (Chopin my desert island composer) but love the Beatles. No rap, country, heavy metal or banging of any kind though. I actually enjoy melody! Love to travel but can't imagine living anywhere but NYC. Culturally thirsty. Hate politics although grasp the need for it in a democracy. Family ties are important and the children in my life, nieces, nephews keep me laughing.
