How about we… Take a gourmet picnic, huge blanket, tea-lights and cushy pillows to watch a movie at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (or other outdoor theater)!
How about we… Take a hike with a vista and grab brunch afterwards.
How about we… Go to Venice Beach Wines for tasty bites, mellow wine and shared stories...
An awesome place I've visited:
Sardinia Anguilla Kauai See a pattern here? Hmmmm
My perfect Sunday:
Farmer's market Brunch Reading the paper at home or a book on the beach Exploring something new
The movie I've watched the most times:
The Big Lebowski The Color Purple The Shawshank Redemption Forrest Gump Out of Africa Moonstruck Cinema Paradiso The Bourne films
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Never one to feel obligated to conform, I've taken the road less traveled in life. It's mostly been a blessing but can sometimes be a curse too. Born on the East Coast, I've lived in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Michigan, Manhattan, Missouri, and now CA for 22 years. I've picked up values & cultural traits from every place I've lived. And that makes me a real individual. Quite versatile too! Lot's to share and many more memories to make.
My first concert / My dream concert:
My 1st concert was James Brown 1968 Dream concert- Aretha Franklin circa 1960s or 70s -or- the 3-day Tuareg Festival au Desert (music, camel racing) in Mali
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Oh, lots of little tidbits! You'll see.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Are always kind, culturally savvy, silly humorous, uber intelligent & ever curious, love music, generous of spirit, has an eye for the aesthetics and creative with their hands (like handy-men, artists, writers, carpentry, culinary etc.), and are manly men with sensitive souls who aren't afraid to be all that they are in front of whomever -especially me.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Talking all about yourself without taking interest in, and asking about, the other person (conversation volley). Oh, and picking your nose -that would be nasty!
What I would bring to show and tell:
I'll keep it simple and complicated. Me, myself & I. And all the wisdom "we" have acquired -plus all that we haven't! (Hopefully you've learned what I haven't and vice versa.)
I secretly want to be:
A prize winner. An international selling jewelry artist. Sofia Loren. A singer on par with 1960s Aretha Franklin. A Pulitzer-prize winning author. Venus.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Loved in the most comprehensive way imaginable. (You'll have to inspire that in me though. -It's not difficult -you get what you give.) Who really wants to enjoy the 2nd half of our life.
An infatuation of mine:
HGTV home improvement shows and House Hunters International!
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Live in a comfy, modest, energy independent home. Drive an electric or solar car. Volunteer and/or adopt or foster children. Nurture my family. Become a philanthropist & pay it forward. Swim nearly everyday on my newly acquired beach! (Or a pool with a view would suffice.) Create things. Travel. Have a ball!
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I've had it too hard in life for such a sensitive soul and I deserve a world of good. I believe in and practice the golden rule. I excel in putting myself in other people's shoes. And I'm a pacifist.
I want to come home to:
A smile, warm & curious eyes, touch and a serene, comfy home. A glass of vino would enhance all of that.
