Smart, creative, curious, funny, adventurous, affectionate, and kind -- just like you. Boundless energy that keeps me looking and feeling young. I am irreverent and somewhat eccentric, just enough to make life interesting. I like the city and the outdoors, crowds and being alone, listening and contributing -- you see the pattern here. Interesting and interested, mindful and curious, I especially like being part of a "we."
I like cooking, books, travel, jazz and opera, yoga and working out, fly fishing, and baseball. I do the New York Times crossword and acrostic the old-fashioned way, in red ink. I wear hats and write personal notes with fountain pens and good inks. My interests run the gamut, from the off-beat to high-tech. I am comfortable talking to anyone and going anywhere, but in this casual world I will still dress for opera at the Met.
As much as I like completing assignments successfully, I like volunteering and making a difference in the lives of others even more, including week-long Habitat builds every year in post-Katrina New Orleans. That kind of giving is nourishment for me. I am also grateful that I can still enjoy both of my parents, 97 and 93, who live in Sarasota.
Friends have suggested I mention that "separated" means living in different states and in the process of divorce with no chance of reconciliation. I am petite and very fit, so there should be no surprises (except pleasant ones) if we meet.
Sorry, I don't respond to "flirts" or "hi, how are you" since I hope you have something original to say.
