A little about me...
I'm a happy girl who lives in the mountains just north of Santa Fe, really glad to be out of the city where I was born and grew up (Houston). I am mostly retired and love movies, some opera, classical and oldies (R&B) music, close-embrace tango, good conversation (really bad at small talk), smart people who like to think. I adore my 2 adult children...did a good job! And my 5 grandchildren...wow, they are fun! (They live in San Antonio and Sebastopol, CA.) I am financially and emotionally secure, have had a wonderful career and am now enjoying making art (watercolor, fabric collage), playing the piano, some great volunteer work, entertaining my friends and dancing tango (other things, too, but tango is my favorite). I'm adventurous and would like a partner with whom to share the adventure that life is!
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a bright, interesting man, with baggage that has been mostly handled! Laid-back would be nice....life is too good to be pushing all the time. I would like someone in my age range 57-67, as I am quite young for my age and have a lot of energy. Sharing classical music and movies and cooking (I like company in the kitchen!) would be great. I want someone who appreciates who I am and is happy to be appreciated...affectionate, caring, loves kids and animals, hiking, music (did I repeat myself?) and appreciates beauty. Financially and emotionally secure....happy, in other words. I am not about to be "over the hill" so sensual and sexual is important.
I'd just like to add...
Have already told you my favorite activities. Love Santa Fe restaurants, especially Ristra, Osteria, Il Piatto, Tune-up Cafe. Eating out is nice but would really rather cook if I have company. Love foreign/art films more than American ones but can be convinced to see a native one occasionally but no gratuitous violence....and it needs to tell a story about real people. I love to read and find it enjoyable to be in the same room while my partner & I are both reading, perhaps foot to foot. I don't have guns and am not opposed to a gun but collectors and hunters need not apply. I'm a big peace advocate (work with Creativity for Peace here in Santa Fe) and sustainability/green building advocate. Lived with an architect for 20 years, so aesthetics are important. I work out at least twice a week and add a hike if I can, eat healthy (grow an organic garden in the summer) and sleep well! I should live to be 100!
