A little about me...
I'm a smart, funny, borderline pretty, uncomfortably zaftig (but I never want to be thin) freelance illustrator with a good brain, a house, two and a half cats, and a desire to get more adventure into my life. Love to cook (hardly ever use a recipe), sing (I can carry a tune far, but not professional solo quality). Want to get back to camping and hiking. Would really love to return to family in New England; I'm not a Southerner. Love the outdoors. MENSA member most of the time.
I design and illustrate products and create presentation materials for large manufacturers, mostly apparel. Also do my own drawings/paintings for galleries. Need to do much more; there is certainly a creative imperative, and I need to earn my keep! (Don't worry, I don't want your money!)
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for ... (here we go...) smart, funny, articulate, outgoing "carpenter-poet" (someone who might work with his hands but who is creative with a fine, independent mind and varied interests.) No chain-smokin', beer guzzlin' NASCAR lovers, please! No druggies, either.
Wanna be friends? GOOD! Got energy? Got creativity? Got no religion? ALL GOOD! Wanna maybe make it a love-of-our-lives connection? Even better! Please send a PERSONAL message; I am finding all those little "flirts" you guys send (I get about 30 a day!) just show laziness!
I'd just like to add...
I have no children, but would enjoy becoming the other grandma or auntie. I look and act younger than 59 and historically date younger men, but don't call me a cougar or I'll claw your eyes out! I am planning to write and illustrate a couple books and create my own fashion line (just because I can). Baseball fan, esp. Red Sox. Want to visit ALL major league ballparks (only 4 so far). Other favorite places: Yosemite, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, ocean front property, any painting studio where someone is using oil paint (love the smell), coffee shops in the morning, ocean beaches in winter. Favorite things: Bluegrass music, handmade pottery and jewelry, fabric and yarn, great tools, all animals, feeling strong enough to do anything. Favorite people: intelligent change-makers (they inspire me to be better), great performers (they give me permission to make an idiot of myself when appropriate), athletes (they show me anything is possible).
