Curious, creative, quick-witted woman looking for love, laughter, and lust with a smart cool easygoing guy. I’ve been divorced for a while but raising my daughter and working full time has taken most of my energy. Things have eased up lately and I finally have some time to spend on the right man. I am fun loving and down to earth. I do my best to be open-minded and non-judgmental and accept all people for who they are. That being said, I’m a Berkeley girl born and raised, and have fairly liberal worldviews. Realistically, we’re probably not going to be a great match if you voted for Romney in the last Presidential election. Some things that I love to do; curl up with a good novel (Carson McCullers, William Faulkner, Philip K****, sing along to my favorite song (Lucinda Williams, Johnny Cash, Rolling Stones, I love all kinds of music as long as it comes from the heart and has soul to it). Find a new route, travel a new road, photograph just about anything anywhere especially in the low golden light of sunset or the pink-purple hues of sunrise, listen to the birds singing in the morning, sip on strong coffee, take a bike ride up a hard hill until I think my sides will split with the effort. Go on home to BRC once a year, to frolic in the dust. I’m not for everyone, I’m quirky and creative and a little nerdy, but for the right man I will be loyal, affectionate, sexy, and supportive. I will have your back and be your best friend. I am both independent and social, a city dweller and a nature lover, an adventurer and a home body. Like most people, I have lots of layers and have done lots of things. Despite it all, or maybe because of it, I try not to take anything for granted and be grateful for every day that I am alive. I feel young for my age, even idealistically naïve, still hoping that positive intent and love can mend the world or at least make it a healthier place for us all to live. I don’t like to have too many expectations or too rigid an idea of who I’m looking for because you never know. I hope you’re out there and that we meet up soon.
