I am lucky to have a life full of interesting people and things to
do. I am known for my participation in many activities. I enjoy my
volunteer work at a medical facility for the homeless. I am working
on learning to speak Spanish but it is slow going. Other courses
that I take are broadening my knowledge and giving me a opportunity
to explore new subjects. Art has always been of great interest. I
try to keep up with all the shows that are in town and belong to
the Phillips and the Corcoran.
My dog is a great incentive to get up in the morning and go to the
park as well as in the afternoon. We both have friends we enjoy
there. I have taken up bridge after not playing for many years. The
rules have changed a bit but not drastically and much of it comes
back when you start to play.
Washington has so many wonderful theaters. I enjoy theater at Arena
Stage and dance and Opera at the Kennedy Center.
I love to cook and am trying to reduce the fat and stick to fresh
produce and local fish and meat. Cooking is so rewarding when you
sit down to a beautiful meal. I try to fine particularly good but
not necessarily expensive restaurants.
I have great friends but have not met many single men. I miss
having a partner to share a good conversation, a laugh, a meal or a
walk in the park.
I appreciate diversity and initiative, caring and empathy,
truthfulness and honor. A sense of humor is so important and a
willingness to leave the past behind to live for a future filled
with optimism and love.
