sunsets...reading...enjoying family times...spending a quiet
evening at home with a dear friend...dining out...music.... the
gym...walking..laughing at myself...participating in stimulating
discussions...exploring new interests...following a healthy food
How do you celebrate?
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying family since I have returned/retired as a NYS social
worker after 20 years in Manhattan. Spending as much time with
family, especially grandchildren...I volunteer, deciding whether to
get a part time job or kick up my volunteer efforts (considering
volunteering to simply sit with people dying without
family/friends) ...Upolstering antiques...improving my
organizational skills with regard to "stuff"...considering dating
again.....have you ever said if I only knew then what I know now?
Well, now I do know...do you?
Come grow old with me...our best is yet to be!
I’m really good at
listening..caring...cherishing....massaging...helping others to
reach decisions about their life, not mine...using my sense of
humor to deal with absurdities of life...not having you change
because I think it's a good idea...Sometimes, even I think it is a

background while counseling clients in Manhattan...going to a live
jazz concert...you can listen to Frank Sinatra with
me...anytime...I have his entire collection on my computer.
Food?...what's not to like? Especially Italian, seafood, ethnic.
Seriously, I maintain a healthy weight with a modified WW food plan
and reading " eat this...not that" books. Taught Home Economics
years ago...do not like cooking for one. Almost forgot...use fresh
ingredients...those that come out of the ground or have had a
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
Computers, the internet and google (have you seen the Hubble
telescope site? visited the Louve and museums of the world?)
Love, humor and laughter;
Last love of my life!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How people relate to each other...hodgepodge politics and spin
doctors...taking charge of my health concerns...corny
jokes...spirituality...and anything new that catches my attention.
On a typical Friday night I am
Following serendipity...anything goes!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is that I will not admit it on line. This would be a private

you feel your interests are similar to mine..if you feel I might
