In Her Own Words

About her

Just back from seeing Orestia, raw and unsettling theatre, proving that we still have to find out what being human means. And why we feed and thrive on such cathartic stuff. Jean Vanier, however, said that'our greatest need is to feel that we have value, are worthy and can do beautiful things'. I'd love to connect the prose and the passion...query the beauty we glimpse via the pain.

Your Guardian angel would approve of us meeting; you don't have to be a member of Mensa to send me a message or indeed a postgraduate from the school of life. It would help though if you are passionate about something, and generous with your heart's deepest feelings.

My children are all flown but in touch.
Conversations feed me... though I can also do silence. Not over long though!
Serendipity is one of my favourite words.Resonance is another.
I find working with needy adolescents in a recovery centre as an English teacher deeply rewarding. It goes without saying that I love reading; I'm on several books simultaneously, including Tremain's story of a modern-day economic migrant, some Henri Nouwen,Just now I'm reading McEwan's Children's Act.

Recently I helped at a night shelter for the homeless.

What else? I love pottering in charity shops, love the alchemy of words, in all their forms.

A lovely man I taught - differently wired to most of us- had a smile that taught me that to love someone is for their happiness to be the same as your own.

I love train journies, cycling, walking through cities and wild landscapes.

Henry Moore's Sheep Sketchbook moves me deeply. So does all kinds of music. Baroque music, Schubert, Mozart. I Voces 8. Art: Rothko, Matisse, Vermeer, late Rembrandt, full of beauty not skin-deep but life-deep. Just now I'm listening to Acis and Galetea.

On a dating site it's all too easy to stay a silhouette. Let's flesh out the outlines.

About her ideal match

I am looking forward to trusting you, laughing with you, and sharing my life openly with you. It's a good experience to have had, being alone, but I miss company. Being alone feels too much like a test, like being in the wilderness. It limits one's horizons. I'd like to see them opening.

I'm open to anyone kind, funny and able to make me laugh at least once a day. Warmth is vital. I want to be with someone who sees a relationship as a dynamic journey into deeper integrity and authenticity. Some intellectual affinity would also be good. Most important is that you should know how to love, be happy with differences rather than strive to be a clone of me. Bounce comments off me, listen, respond, have that light in your eyes. Energy in your voice, integrity in your actions, intelligence in your eyes.

It could get rather exciting. 'The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed'(Jung). 'I change you as you unfold and you change me as I unfold'. Beatrice Beebe, a researcher and psychotherapist.

All I know is that 'We are made for loving. If we don't love, we will be like plants without water'. Also that we fall in love by chance,
we stay in love by choice.
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize winner. Famous, among many other things, for his smile.
