what you should know about me

Incurable romantic trapped in a technological world. I love music, reading, history, talking & listening, nature, the environment/Ishmael & animals. I'm also winsome, whimsical, sometimes impulsive, eccentric, affectionate, playful, slightly quixotic, domestically challenged, depressingly monogamous and a little old-fashioned. I have a dry sense of humor that likes to try to see the humorous side of anything. I enjoy camping, theme parks, Renaissance re-creation, dressing up (especially in Renaissance clothes!), mountains & solitude. I'm not a TV person, but I do like occasional movies. I love just about all types of music. It can be a great mood elevator - if it's the right music at the right time. Ultimately I guess there is always Prozac but I haven't tried that yet - music is less expensive and it's re-usable. Warning! - I live with 6 cats - they are my child substitutes - and I don't have to worry about putting them through college or giving them the keys to the car. Someday when I have more time I'll probably become the crazy cat lady that all the neighborhood kids wonder about & bedevil on Halloween. Everyone needs a career, even after retirement! My goal in life is to retire early to a big house on a large, wooded, secluded piece of property by a lake with lots of wildlife, lots of pets, several fireplaces & lots of books. I'm patiently waiting to win the lottery to accomplish this. One can only hope that instead one isn't living over a sewer grate in Port Authority trying to persuade the cats to stick around & not all pack their little bags & move to a more classy abode. I love candlelit dinners with soft music in the background. Or walking arm-in-arm down a little village street or a park on a spring day. Maybe strolling through a museum or an art gallery or sitting in front of a warm fire on a cold evening sipping a glass of wine while we listen to quiet music in a darkened room. What do you like?

who i want to meet here

In the main, looking for internet email friends, people for friendly online chat, maybe a local activity partner to go to Ren fairs, plays, movies, art galleries, museums with, to start. Not yet "dating", or "intimate encounters", or "marriage", just friends. For other than on-line chat, NON-SMOKERS ONLY, please! For those who have gotten this far and may want to go beyond that, please read on. Where relationships are concerned I have always been rather hopelessly old-fashioned and preferred them to start slow and build from friendship - so please, if you are not willing to be just friends for a LITTLE while (we're not talking YEARS here!), pass me by.(ahem) Also, you must be able to put up with 6 cats. While I don't take them with me when I go out no matter how much they beg, we are pretty inseparable at home. You should be, if not an animal lover, at least an animal tolerator! As for that elusive IDEAL relationship, well, relationships are like a box of chocolates - oops no, wait a minute wrong explanation. If I knew with any real degree of certainty what an ideal relationship was I quite possibly wouldn't be without one! I'm reasonably clear on what I DON'T want but the details on what I do want are still a bit hazy. Maybe, one day, we could build that ideal relationship together. Ultimately, I'm looking for someone who is intelligent, affectionate, witty and romantic, someone who likes to play and doesn't take himself too seriously. Someone who can be passionate one minute and my best friend in the next. Someone who doesn't mind getting cards and notes for no reason at all and who maybe will send some himself. I'd like to find someone who would enjoy going out to a museum or an art gallery, having a picnic or going camping for the weekend, taking in a play, staying home snuggling and talking so we remember what we love about each other.

music, movies, tv shows that i like

I am not much of a movie or TV buff - I tend to like living in my head - things look better there, as a rule, and if they don't, I can change them. I prefer a good book to the visual arts. However, I do occasionally manage to make it all the way through a movie and I do watch television very occasionally although, for the most part, I really loathe it. Most of the shows available just don’t appeal to me. There is no TV show that I watch on a regular basis but I do like all the CSI series, Cold Case, Bones, House, and Law and Order . I love The Dog Whisperer. I was also a fan of The A Team, The Twilight Zone (original series) and Spenser For Hire when they were on. I do like watching documentaries, especially on history. Half the time, though, I end up missing even the shows I like because I get caught up reading something and forget to stop and turn the show on.
Favorite Movies: The Red Violin, Ladyhawke, Bennie and Joon, Marty, Mary Poppins, Harvey, Anne of the Thousand Days, Onmyoji, Shrek 2, Desk Set, People Will Talk, The Bishop’s Wife, Shirley Valentine, Bagdad Café, Tron, The 3 Lives of Thomasina, and all of the Brother Cadfael series of movies
