I have a keen appreciation for language, written or spoken. Words captivate and woo me. I guess that you could call me well read, but sadly these days I get into bed and fall asleep with a book on my face only a few pages later.
My reverence for nature is the closest thing I have to religion. I am made whole by being outdoors : seeing a beautiful sunset or flower can make everything right for me. I find our physical world breathtaking.
I am a fairly active person. Moving my body maintains my sanity. I run and bike outdoors and am mostly a gym rat in the winter. Close friends are trying to convince me to start training for an endurance event.
My hair is silver, I don't have the wherewithal to dye it and maintain a routine schedule as such at the salon. Most people in my life tell me that the color suits me and complements my blue eyes.
At heart, I am a tomboy but I clean up quite nicely.
I am a thinker. I answered a question on this site in the affirmative about my capacity to daydream, but in hindsight I might say instead that I am easily engaged by the ramblings of my somewhat active mind. I like to pursue threads of thought and make deductions and associations. Unfortunately I sometimes have a hard time shutting my brain off.
I am a mother to four-year old twins that bring a lot of light and levity to my life. Watching my littles make their way in the world is undoubtedly my greatest joy.
I'm interested in having fun and meeting new people in the short-term, with a longer-term goal of stability.
