Favorite quote: "I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief." (Gerry Spence)
Although I am not Jewish, I have been married twice (widowed 2 years) to Jewish men, and feel that I've been immersed in Jewish culture for the better part of the past 50 years. I consider myself spiritual but not religious. I still work and love what I do, feel and have been told that I am "youthful" for my age. My husband passed away 2 years ago after a very rewarding 27 years of marriage. I have two adult daughters (brilliant and beautiful, of course) from my first marriage which ended in divorce after 18 years, and 6 grandchildren. I have lived in Italy for a total of 12 years (was raised in Rome, went back with my youngest daughter for a year after my divorce, as well as a number of times for weeks or months since), have been a pianist and teacher for many years, was professionally involved in photography before doing what I do now, which is psychotherapy. I have a private practice in San Francisco.
I am open to meeting someone who is fun, funny, kind, likes music and art, loves dogs (I have a Bichon I'm devoted to and who comes to work with me), has had a happy marriage (but wouldn't expect me to be a traditional housewife-y kind of partner) and has had children. Someone who has generosity of spirit, is politically liberal (as my late husband's nephew said: "The last time anyone in our family voted Republican, it was for Lincoln."), and is confident and affectionate.
