Before I tell you what I hope Part II is filled with, I'll start with where I've been.
Part I was filled with plenty of joy and some pain. Lots of
lessons and self-discovery. It was filled with a career that I love and 2 sons I adore. It was filled with growth that took me in a different direction from my ex. It led me to greater expressions of my creativity (writer/artist) and more awareness of my spirituality and connection with a Higher Power and my fellow human beings.
At this point in my life, I'm older (don't feel it!) and wiser (absolutely!). In Life, Part II, I would love to meet a kindred spirit who values kindness, humor, intelligence, fun, adventure, and a loving committed relationship. I love to laugh, consider myself quite witty and playful. (As a writer, I love language in general) I've been described as a "deep thinker, but a light spirit".
I love to travel. Have been to quite a few countries in Europe -- but that was back in my backpacking college days, so I'm due for some new adventures. I love music -- all of it. From classic rock to even the new, more mainstream country...and everything in between. Music moves me. Art moves me. Love moves me. Bright, kind people move me. My children...and so many other things. Interesting foods. Spontaneous weekend getaways (only when I'm really "a couple" with someone. I don't take that lightly.) I love the ocean (I grew up in a house that overlooked the ocean. Mom now lives on an island in Maine!) so being near the sea feeds my soul.
I had the privilege of going to a very fine college, but in no way consider myself an academic snob. I enjoy bright, witty, interesting people no matter what their "credentials" are!
I'm professionally/financially independent so I'm not looking for someone to take care of me. I'm looking for someone who compliments me(almost said "completes me"...but that's no one's job but my own!)
If you think we have some important things in common, I'd love to hear from you. If not, best of luck in finding your own version of Life, Part II.
