I'm a compassionate intelligent woman who loves a good laugh. I enjoy my home and entertaining but also like to get dressed up to go out to dinner, movies, concerts, and the Detroit Institute of Art. I try to keep a book or two going all the time and enjoy being with someone who appreciates reading and sharing ideas. I'm looking for friendship that might grow into something more. The person I'd like to be with would enjoy - fun, adventures, and companionship. Someone who appreciates the exchange of conversation but isn't uncomfortable with quiet still moments. Some of my favorite activities include: kayaking, sailing, trips to the dog park, attending art fairs and museums. I'm addicted to NPR, enjoy Hill Auditorium and the DIA. I bake huge quantities of Armenian food with some great women during the summer for fund-raising. Oh, and did I say euchre? Love the game! At age 15 I had a life-threatening illness that resulted in the loss of a leg. It was a catalyst for growth in every area of my life. I was a music major in college and still enjoy playing the piano at all hours of the night. I can't imagine life without music. BTW if you happen to have a deep calm voice, it's a plus :) If you'd like me to check out your profile, I'm happy to as long as you include a picture.
