A little about me...
PLS do not send messages if you have not posted photos, or if you have nothing to say. I'm not interested in rescue and recovery.
I survived a major heart attack in August 2007, so PLS NO SMOKERS. This is not a dress rehearsal. Apparently, God's not finished with me yet.
I love living in the city: theaters, restaurants, high energy, shows (scripted and unscripted), and always diversity. I also love weekends in the country, the beach, and exploring new places. In Sept. 2010, my 'roots tour' took me to the Baltics and E. Europe to meet cousins I had never met before, and explored parts of the world my family's from.
A former New Yorker, I am a citizen of the world. I love the little row house I own in Adams Morgans, my favorite neighborhood in Washington. It reminds me of the Village in NYC!
I'm always inquisitive and exploring something. I don't want to live 'the unexamined life'. Well educated (the product of a European education), friends would describe me as sophisticated, funny, articulate, intelligent, artistic, creative, generous, compassionate, and a big animal lover. Basically, I'm a pretty great broad! I'm also known as a good cook who can take you from borscht to greens, and still be culturally correct.
About the one I'm looking for...
Companionship mainly, a vigorous physical life (sailing, hiking, traveling) including, possibly, an active sex life. There's always the possibility of a long term relationship, but right now I'm not so sure about that. I want to have a great time living my life, and creating new friendships! I want someone I can go to the Kennedy Center with, including other venues like museums and galleries, and someone to share some of my favorite restaurants with.
It's also nice if you adore music and dancing. I have very eclectic tastes. Some of the folks I listen to are Joe Williams, Annie Lennox, Prince, The Neville Brothers, Aerosmith, Shirley Horn, the Rolling Stones, and sometimes, recapturing my youth, I play some P-funk!
You get extra points if you can do a mean tango, the sexiest dance on earth!
If you're afraid of strong women, I'm not for you.
I'd just like to add...
Intelligence, integrity, humor, and an inquisitive mind packed in a healthy, well-maintained body is very desirable and sexy.
If you're prettier than I am, this won't work out. If you haven't had an original thought since 1963, this won't work out.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
Unadulterated beauty and majesty. It gives me perspective on what's really important in the world.
Self-expression and creation are vital to the human condition. It's a way of speaking your soul, who you really are, what moves you, and what you are passionate about.
Cooking is sensuous, and involves all the senses. What a wonderful way to love yourself and others who you share your cooking with!
