Let's face it, I'm not as thin as I was 20 years ago when I complained about being fat. I'm not as good looking as I was back then either - a few more wrinkles, and other signs of time passing. But along with the not so desirable changes on the outside go the improvements on the inside. I am kinder and more compassionate. My intellect and wit are sharper than ever. I am quite content in this imperfect exterior of mine and I have the ability to truly connect with another person on so many different levels, physical, emotional, and intellectual. So what am I still doing here? Looking for stimulating conversation over a martini or a nice glass of wine. Still love those indie and foreign films but would sometimes rather rent the dvd's and watch them cuddled up together on the couch after a good home cooked meal than schlep somewhere and eat that terrible popcorn. I still love the theater, especially the off off Broadway type, and most especially the Fringe Festival. I am kind of a reverse snowbird, spending most of the summer in Florida. Dyed-in-the-wool Mets/Jets fan and will NEVER change. Would still love to see the world, but at a slower pace.
