I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl. I'm eternally curious and near Data's end of the logic spectrum. I exercise, so that I can indulge. I've visited lots of places and try to go to a new one each year. I went hiking around Southern California and Utah on my last short vacations. I find the outdoors to be increasingly rejuvenating. I'm more of a day hiker (maximum so far is 18 mi). I hope to share my love of travel and take my nieces somewhere they want to go after they turn 13.
I need quiet time to recharge, but have more friends/family globally than I can keep up with. And since I have not yet destroyed all of my brain cells with wine and single malts, I like to use the remaining ones to learn new things and chat about stuff.
I try to live like the song, "I Hope You Dance" and the poem Instantes, except for the religious parts.
I like people with things to teach me, who roll easily with the punches, and are considerate of others. I like old-world manners and affectionate men. I abhor drama in my personal life; I say what I mean, do what I say, and it works best if he does the same and is self aware enough to do so. But we should start with fun, no?
As much as I would love to meet someone to share my life with, I am not in a rush. I'm happy to be a step-mom, mom, or not. I love children and adore my nieces.
