I am a writer, which means I am a storyteller. I love stories, folktales, books, plays, films and any tale that has been already told a thousand times. Though I'll listen to the 1001st time! if it's good. I often find myself re-reading great books. The latest are the five novels of Edward St.Aubyn, pure genius.
I'm looking for a woman with imagination, a woman with intelligence, a woman with a fearless heart, a woman who loves the arts, a woman who loves to work for peace, an activist, a lover of life. If you're deep into football, NSCAR, home decorating and casinos, read no further..
Professionally, I write about culture, social issues, art, history and tales of interesting people from any background. My books have been about music and mythology. I adore all kinds of music, from reggae and blues to pop and funk and rock. As Duke Ellington said, "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." Favorite bands include: the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Nick Drake, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Mumford and Sons, Paul Simon, BigStar, Cassandra Wilson, Leonard Cohen, Miles Davis, Lucinda Williams,Steve Earle, The Beatles, and many other bands and artists. Favorite films: The Third Man, Citizen Kane, Jean de Florette/Manon of the Spring, Taxi Driver, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Chinatown, The Apu Trilogy, Star Wars, The Fugitive, Lost in Translation, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Everything is Illuminated. So many that these just floated off the top of my head.
I am always looking to better myself. I bike and hike. I meditate, I read voraciously, usually three or more books at a time. I believe we are all gifted and wounded in equal measure. I am a unique person who thinks out of the box. I have been through the fires of life. I know how to love pretty well. My hobbies include film festivals, collecting art, jewelry making.
