I'm a bright, funny, even charming woman, occasionally a little offbeat... I'm a terrific cook and love entertaining friends over dinner. I love almost all kinds of music (but I just can't do country...) and am particularly partial to Springsteen. I'm not a great dancer, though I am enthusiastic - I blame it on not having a regular dancing partner! I'm a reader and a thinker, prone to lingering conversations that verge on the philosophical, someone with a passion for ideas and expressing them. I love travel, though I haven't done nearly as much as I'd like to do - there are so many wonderful places to be explored that are more fun when shared with someone else.
