I am just an old-fashioned, girl next door with a few exceptions here and there. I lean toward sophistication and classy, clean up well, enjoy boundless energy, as I am no mild-manner reporter, I just act that way. I am into intelligence, real and pseudo, and I never met a good substantive conversation I didn’t like. Especially while walking on the beach, holding hands into the sunset.
When I made acceptance speeches, I thanked my daughter who raised me (pre and sans divorce), and George McGovern, who was a good friend, who convinced me that I indeed intimidate men because I have wonderful sophistication, but that is a good thing, even if men prefer the pregnant-and-barefoo t concept. (By the way, our friendship was not an indication of my political leanings: You would never know which way I leaned if I stood at the edge of a cliff, right or left. But as a hint, I like to drive in England).
Amongst my passions is designing innovative jewelry. On that note, creativity came into my life at a serious pace when I reinvented myself at age 57. I started my own anti-aging skin-care concept, and went through a plethora of ideas to create different and innovative everything. That is my mantra, and in today’s world, my ideas lean toward developing ideas for embellishing the image of others. Now I lean toward having a world of being 68 with the right person.
My adequate amount of gray matter led me to developing and patenting some entertainment lighting technology, amongst other things, and I accidentally inherited a patent for a substance that fixes stocking runs -- not very viable for today’s world. The passions override the gray matter, and I prefer doing what I love while traveling the world, writing, sailing, snow skiing, walking beaches, spoiling my gorgeous grandsons (or at least trying to get kisses out of them), and an occasional game of bridge while listening to classical music and sipping on a good glass of wine. Maybe even sharing a good cigar.
As for baggage, I never have to claim it because I never check it through I prefer carry-on, which makes for a light load and I myself can unpack it. Baggage is something we all have to own, like it or not. It is the baggage handlers of the world that get the good grip.
I am looking for someone who is understanding, caring, and has a great sense of humor. Lots of character and intelligence is a must, along with the obvious things that make for a wow relationship. Also, I laugh at jokes. I am missing a substantive, funny man in my life. And, one who wants to hold hands into the sunset at this point of our lives.
