A little about me...
Likes: conversation, physical intimacy, exploring back roads, laughing out loud
Dislikes: pretense, meanness, oversimplification
I've lived in and traveled to numerous parts of the world -- was a foreign correspondent for a U.S. newspaper for a while -- and would like getting to know someone with similarly broad horizons. At the same time, I can appreciate someone who has chosen instead to spend her life close to friends and family. I'm a professional writer and editor (also a recovering lawyer!) and it would be nice to be with someone who appreciates the nature of my work.
I love the excitement of meeting new people, hearing their stories. (And I try not to go on too long in telling my own!) I love road trips; it would be fun to have a partner in the exploration of the nooks and crannies of New England -- and the world. I also love off-road trips: hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking.
I'm close to my two sisters and am devoted to my three college-age daughters, who during the summer and vacations divide their time equally between me and their mom.
About the one I'm looking for...
Makes me laugh occasionally. Kind. Enjoys outdoor activities. Pretty. Interested in ideas and people. Spontaneous. Occasionally says something that makes me say, "Hmmm...now THAT's interesting."
I'd just like to add...
My Mastercard number is--wait, I'm not allowed to give that out in this forum, right? So if you want me to share my personal financial information with you, or simply want to get to know one another better, let's meet for a drink or a latte. (I grew up in Seattle and knew Starbucks when it was just a toddler.)
Thanks for your time.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I like to hike (partly because of the cool maps) and bike (I commuted 14 miles round trip, year-round, for nine years before moving to RI several years ago); just bought a kayak for exploring Naragansett Bay, the Wood River, and beyond; have long loved snow-shoeing, but don't get enough opportunities to do it.
Still like to visit exotic places occasionally. I once crossed the Sahara, and I spent 10 days in Cameroon recently. And I work for a company based in India.
I like most kinds of music, from "Call Me Maybe" to Corelli to Kanda Bongo Man.
