Dating StatusFirst you see my face, but then you catch my eyes. 'Stop Looking at Me' ; I do not like to be stared upon
More About MeI'm cute, quirky, a good listener, extremely loyal, witty -- a ham at times (I love to laugh, true belly laughter), a hard worker, my home -- wherever it might be -- welcoming with it's odd antiques and eclectic art collection. I do not let my friends down, or manipulate people: essentially I'm a sweet girl. Physically, I'm a cross (so it be said) between "YO Adrienne and Liz Taylor. I love my music (varied) and book collection. There is nothing artificial about me, except maybe for a bit of eye liner and mascara.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesI'm a fidgeter. I can't just sit and watch TV; I must be drawing, sewing or flipping through a journal. Once I start writing, it's hard to get me to stop. I am awed by how uninvited characters just appear, and a plot-line develops. I used to cook often for my family: I'd experiment with various international dishes and baking was a pride and joy. I like to travel, explore new areas and cities, I paint and sketch and work with colour in many different capacities. I treasure my friends, though it's not always easy to stay in touch. Oh, and the wide screen cinema, ballet, and an Unplugged Concert. There's more, but. ...
Political AffiliationMake love not war,i.e.., World Unity
Who I Would Like to MeetHonesty above all. A willingness to commit and adore (the right person). A balanced set of values, motivation and a love of learning. Someone who shares my curiousity and humour and love of nature. Someone who doesn't need to puff himself up or who talks incessantly about how much money he makes -- BORING! Someone who has learned from his mistakes and continues to look at the new and the different with an open mind.

Where You Were Raisedas a child, in France. Then the US; from CT to CA to The green mountains of Vermont
Others NoticeHow petite (small -- but strong boned) I really am. Moot point, doesn't seem to turn anyone off, unless, of course, they are obsessed they are w/ Amazon women.
Skills/TalentsCooking, several types of dancing, writing, a flair for both dress & home decoration (sometimes do surprise myself), and my uncanny ability to draw children. Never at a loss for ideas, and, to top this one off, gosh, I really am modest. (Did I mention the inherited 'WIT?' Paternal side, dominate strain; at least we can amuse ourselves!
Favorite FoodIndian, cookies, a good chopped salad with mucho contents, my signature fruit salad. Chocolate, of course.
Subjects You Think AboutSurvival. Rampant poverty, and how I can possibly help. Wanting to manage my general health better. Family relations, aka, a brutal divorce which splintered our lovely little family. Lost days. How not to lose more days. Wondering where the days go? And, if you want it all, take this: my brilliant papa, now a professor emeritus, loves to cause trouble and though I'm his one&only, I'm also his newest target. I wonder why this is quite a bit!
Friday or Saturday Nights IIT all depends! Out and about or tucked in bed sleeping.
Life GoalsTo listen to the underdog, and with my words, share his/her views. To be able to touch the universe in some way. To write in such a way that people from all walks of life can relate to. To make sure that my kids, well out of my nest, find their way in this hard world.
