IT OCCURS TO ME that I am spending too much time with Emily Dickinson, delightful as she is. I could move on to TS Eliot, but I would rather meet a confident, intelligent, athletic, accomplished man in his mid 50’s to mid 60’s to spend my time with.  I am a tall, slim, fit, well-traveled, very cultured and elegant woman.  50ish if we must.  I am passionate about many things, the arts, cooking, my work, and the people I love. And I can pay my own ticket. I’m also not at all afraid of providing a photo. If you live in Toronto, all the better, but I am willing and able to consider New York for the right man.
