Spice is the variety of life! (Yes, that is what I meant... see my reference to Indian food!)
I have been told by friends, acquaintances and strangers alike, that I am passionate, witty, and ‘weird’... the latter of which I like to pronounce as ‘charmingly eccentric’. I would add to those descriptives: honest (with myself and others), nontraditional, intense, and confident. I definitely have a cynical and pessimistic side to me, but I still get giddily excited every time I see a rainbow, or any kind of wild animal (as long as it’s not in captivity!) I believe that everything we have, or think we have, can be taken away at any moment, so I make a concerted and mostly successful effort to enjoy the ‘now’.
For me, there is almost nothing better than making a room full of people erupt in laughter. Unless it’s sharing an intimate and private laugh with a close someone, that only the two of you can fully understand and appreciate.
I value my career and my independence, and I take pride in knowing that I have achieved my successes through perseverance, honest hard work, and being open to the occasional chance opportunity. I enjoy learning new things, whether it’s a new word, a new concept, or a new language. Five years ago, I decided to fulfill my secret lifelong dream of learning to play the violin. It sounds horrible, and my teacher told me I hold the bow all wrong, but nothing could hinder the joy I felt the first time I played an ear-wrenching rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It doesn’t sound much better five years later, but that’s ok, because unlike my singing (and maybe guitar), it will never be heard in public, no matter how many glasses of wine I’ve had!
I have always felt very content with myself and with my life as a single woman, and so I haven’t had a lot of relationships. But I would like to meet someone who is open-minded and reflective, can make me laugh, and can keep up with me in conversation and witty remarks. If you've been paying attention, I think you'll know whether or not you and I might form a connection. If I meet the right person, I would like to have a committed and meaningful partnership. And I have the patience to wait for it.
