Hello, i guess it is in my interest to say as much ...
a practice in humbly admitting how wonderful i really am ... eeek! ... but shortcomings might be perceived as attributes ... and vice versa ... so here are some of mine;
i am a true caring friend ... i am good at being a present audience ... turning an ordinary space into one of beauty ... laughing at my shortcomings ... i just love love to laugh ... i am always open to an adventure ... i speak with an accent (Prague was my original home) ... i love to share my stories from my rather unorthodox life ... i love making yummy meals - i live to eat and love good food! fresh, ethnic, complex, simple and i don't understand people who - eat to live ... i am alive, engaged in life, bouncy, young, i meditate ( unless i am having a lazy excuse and choose a piece of chocolate and a movie instead),
i was an actress once upon a time ...in Prague ... now i write for my own pleasure mostly (with an accent) and still dream of new creative ideas to materialize ... i have accomplished some odd and wonderful dreams in my life ..such as having a traveling circus with my small children ...
i don't watch television, but i do like good movies - independent films, non hollywood, british comedy ... love british humor! also some tv series - i am hooked on 'braking bad', pbs nova series.
i read slowly i and i seem to like the book i am reading at the time ...i have a few favorites ...nabokov's lolita, merwyn peake's gormenghast, luke reinhart's the diceman ... kundera, mary oliver, neruda, david white, klima, rumi ...
i could not imagine life without music and listen a lot ... there are some favorite local groups i go and see
and to mention few from the repertoire of my staples;
... beatles of course, scriabin, the stones, karina denike, dylan, billie holiday, mozart, the band, rachmaninoff, nick drake, the grateful dead, dire straights, leonard cohen, sam cooke, the staple singers, bb king, chopin, astrud gilbeto, dire straights, john fahey, maria callas's ...
i hope this gives you a touch of an idea who i may be ... as vague and limited it is
my life is full and sweet, it seems to be complete, yet i feel a longing to share the mystery of it with a companion.
i am not sure where this originally comes from but i love this saying;
'laughter is the shortest distance between two people'.
i would add that the same is true for intimacy between two people...
i treasure the love i share with my children and grandchildren
and the wealth of having dear friends
i am grateful for the gift of a good laugh, the magical surprises in life, the dreams that seem to be coming
i feel fortunate to live this life
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
maybe we meet in a park ... suddenly it starts pouring ... neither of us have an umbrella... so we run to the nearest caffe, by this time we are soaked ... laughing and feeling relieved that the first moments were broken for us by nature's intervention ... thank goodness..
now over a hot tea ( with a little rum maybe to warm us up) we talk...
i tell you some of mine you tell me some of yours.
i hope that ... you are sincere ... you are comfortable... you like to get the giggles ... you are not afraid to make a fool of yourself ... you know what it's like to have your heart broken .... you enjoy children ... you are passionate about something in your life ...
and we decide what's next ..
