I am a thinker. I admire intelligence. There is no formula to what makes me laugh. I like people that make me laugh, but a goofy sense of humor is too much. On a good day I can laugh at almost anything, despite being a somewhat serious person. I am grateful for almost everything in my life. I am learning the art of how to be grateful, realizing that it does not usually come naturally. I am half-way thhrough writing a fiction novel, and if I finish it will be the thing that I am most proud of besides my two children. I am looking for someone who is a good conversationalist, caring, able to love, self-sufficient, independent, and accepting of the person that I am. I am passionate about movies and music. I appreciate them both as artforms that have enriched my life and I always wonder what my life would be without them.
