I like your writing…and live also in the Bay Area. While we may be coming from different Dyke communities, I love meeting a sister traveler, and one as frustrated about some of the trends as I am. I too love classical music and Butches. I have a Butch partner and am Butch on Butch. Always open to new friendships. I too love books and all the wonders they hold. I can’t say I don’t watch television, mostly late night movies, as most T.V. shows absolutely bore me(except some sci fi now and then). Maybe you’d like to get together for a cup of coffee or tea.
