In A Nutshell
I believe that our health, and making connections bring meaning to our lives.
Our purpose is the meaning We each assign to it.
I’m looking for someone who is authentic, can be an active listener when it comes to communication,
who has tapped jnto the lighter side of life....and who wants to experience life, not alone but with someone else.
Companionship, laughter, the ease of spending time together—experiencing
theatre, travel, romantic nights out sightseeing, dining out, day trips, dancing cheek to cheek..anything that moves us!
To be human is not to live as if we are this island unto itself....but to experience All the richness that life has to offer.
Once a widow, now single—-my heart is open, and ready to take that leap of faith!
The One I Am Looking For
I’d like to meet someone who is open to possibilities. Who isn’t judgmental, or pretentious, but authentic, true to their values and convictions, and genuinely interested in getting to know more about the other person.
Life should be a mystery to be unwrapped,
and lived through experiences, rather than material things ( as nice as some can be),.
For instance, a new car depreciates as soon as you drive it off the lot, and there’s only so many places you can wear a fur coat...but sharing a moment with someone you care about, or noticing the nuances around us, can’t be undervalued.
I think that a relationship, on whatever level, should be allowed to unfold organically. The tango of a solid foundation of friendship with the excitement that comes from being in a relationship that is
easy to be in ( not too much work), can be the kindling for the many wonderfully complicated layers of an exciting, and mature relationship.
Just some food for thought.,,
I'd Just Like to Add
What makes me, me? I tend to be more on the full disclosure side of things, rather than someone you have to peel back the layers to get them to open up...And I like that about myself. I also consider myself intuitive, analytical, authentic, and generally outgoing. I don’t have a pretentious bone in my body. I’m punctual and generally loyal—unless you give me good reason not to be.
I’m not gullible, or clueless. I think I read people pretty well.
I like the sound of rain, all my windows open in the fall, driving with my windows down, singing, And...using Marsala lavishly in my Chicken Marsala, because I never had to really cook before ( husband was the cook), but now that interest comes in spurts...and then there’s always my local takeout favorites!
I love lobster fra diavolo dinners, (taking the Block Island Ferry), salmon, the fall/spring, my newfound love of Pilates, psychological thrillers, live theatre, the possibilities of traveling to places on my bucket list, dancing, rock (classics, 70s/80’s...) contemporary music, art museums, slam poetry, talk radio ( different perspectives),
Italian food/Asian food, a good brew, avocados...and So much yet to be discovered.
My tastes can be kind of eclectic!

My Top Interests:
Live theatre engages your mind, stirs
emotions, and has a way of absorbing
I try to do something to keep myself
fit on average 3x/wk. I do some dumbbell weights for bone strength,
and recently worked with a trainer.
I now do a lot of what I’ve learned at home. I also recently discovered I Love
Pilates! The practice has a lot to do with proper form, with concentration
on your core. It’s even ballet infused.
I like that when practiced consistently
it helps with body awareness, and proper technique in the movements.
I like psychological thrillers, but
I’ve been known to see a good comedy,
or a movie with a more romantic bend.
I do cry at the movies, sometimes.
Not the “ ugly cry,” but when something
moves me, or I find the message really
