A little about me...
I am 5 foot 7 seven inches tall, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. I am an artist who had a graphic design and sign business for 20 years. After a divorce in 1998, that career ended. I am now the proposal/marketing manager for an engineering and environmental consulting firm. I also started painting watercolors again a few years back - I do sort of semi-abstract landscapes - and have had a few shows recently. Painting has brought a lot of balance back into my life. I have a 27 year old daughter who is my best friend. I love animals (dogs, esp), art, music, nature, reading, and NY Times crossword puzzles. I watch TV, mostly HBO, Showtime, or PBS and movies. I like to swim, do some Tae-bo, and love pingpong - but can't get to do any of these on a very regular basis. Work does cut into one's fun. I have a good sense of humor and have spent much of my life making people laugh.
About the one I'm looking for...
Humor and kindness are very important. At this point in life, tall, dark and handsome sounds great, but is most definitely not essential. I would like someone who is intelligent, educated, in pretty good physical shape, appreciates the arts, is affectionate, and can make me laugh and like me for who I am.
I'd just like to add...
I love the ocean - Atlantic Coast and the Caribbean. My favorite most recent trip was to Akumal on the Yucatan Peninsula...I love snorkeling, but love NH or Maine coast for a quickish getaway.
Restaurants: Kyoto Japanese in Burlington (love seafood), Cafe Provence-Brandon, Storm Cafe in Middlebury, Bunkies in Satellite Beach, Florida
Favorites: I love Empire Falls by Richard Russo and Cider House Rules by John Irving. TV favorites are (were) Curb Your Enthusiasm Six Feet Under, movies: Annie Hall and Moonstruck.
I have several very long-term friends who when we get together - well, it's like when we were 19!
