The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about cooking and entertaining. I LOVE to feed people! It is my greatest joy!I am a film fanatic! Love everything from cult to classic. Love music, especially rock 'n roll from the 70's. Wake up and turn on classic rock. Broadway music. Gershwin. Cole Porter. Rhapsody in Blue is my favourite piece of all time. Elton John's Your Song. Sing, Sing, Sing - wow! The best. Love Bruno Mars and that uptown funk. Even love some rap. Love some opera too.I've been studying Kabbalah for 23 years and it's changed my life, given me tools to improve living and bring peace to the universe.Practice TM. Love going
I typically spend my leisure time
I love taking classes on a variety of subjects. Love learning. I am a constant student of life. It stimulates me.Started meditating 20 years ago, but just recently took a course in TM and am loving it!Also beginning a new Chi class of movement.Museums are an important part of my existence. I'm a member of the M.O.T and LACMA.I have two Bichons, Tallulah & Oliver who bring me joy each day and make me laugh. All animals are very important to me. Each of my six have been rescues, wouldn't have it any other way. We are their voice. We must keep them safe and loved.
The most influential person in my life has been
Must love dogs and all animals. Very important issue for me. I don't eat meat or fowl or dairy. Can't be a party to animal abuse and/or torture. They are meant to be free and share the planet with us.Honesty, Integrity, a viewpoint on everything, want someone who is involved and has opinions and enjoys conversation. Must have passion. Intelligence. Lover of all the arts. A sense of humor. If you can recite Seinfeld dialog - all the better ;-)
The first thing people notice about me
My style, my confidence, my ability to connect. I talk to everyone, whether I know them or not, always try to engage people in conversation. I try to make people feel comfortable. My smile and positive outlook.
The last book I read and enjoyed
My favourite book of all time is Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. I read it in high school. I was taken with her philosophy and way of being. It prompted me to read all her other books. I subscribed to her newsletter and devoured it too. Of course, I realized I couldn't live my life like that, but it educated me, and taught me who I really was. I haven't read a novel since that has moved me in that manner. I recently read White Room, don't know how I missed it when it was the rage.Interested in all Freudisms. Since the death of Elie Wiesel, read his trilogy. I am a child of a Holocaust survivor, so important to read for me.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for Tallulah & Oliver and the love and joy they bring to me.
- I am thankful that I have a comfortable home to live in that I love.
- I am thankful for a wonderful family and friends that are supportive and caring.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My vulnerability. Everyone sees me as strong, and I am, but I'd really like to lean on someone else every once in awhile. I have this romantic notion of being taken care of, which is pretty lame coming from someone who participated in bra burnings and freedom marches and protest sit-ins, but that's the truth. I never thought I would ever be saying that either. I am an only child, always been independent and self-sufficient. Maybe I'm just tired of always being in control. It would be relaxing to have someone else be at the helm, a nice change of pace.
