Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a woman with real spirit and ingenuity. I could be described
as more of a participant than a spectator. I like to be engaged in
life, be it an activity, lively conversation or just contemplating
a clear night sky.
I am drawn to the outdoors and being active. Exercise and sunshine
is a happy combination. When at home, I am an avid reader. I enjoy
engaging in a wide range of conversation. I am usually curious and
eager to learn new information.
Lucky me – I have immediate family right here in San Diego and am
close with them. My son is now in college in Wisconsin.
I am originally from Michigan and have the mid-west core values.
Growing up I lived in four countries and five of the United States,
however, I settled here in 1983 and have loved it ever since.
I am drawn to a variety of travel – Active, cultural and nature.
Cultural, and active. I have done quite a bit of adventure travel –
Trekked in Nepal & Peru and recently in Rwanda to find the
mountain gorilla's. I am drawn to the great cities in the world,
rich in their particular culture. I also love nature, especially
our National Parks, Costa Rica's rainforests, etc.
Romantic travel and weekend jaunts are very special with a
I am looking for a best friend, partner and lover. When the
chemistry is right and the friendship is solid, there is usually a
foundation on which to grow. Enjoying the simple pleasure of day to
day conversation, holding hands, being silly, knowing "that" look,
laughing till our ribs ache, basically being real together - that's
what I am seeking. Where are you???
Have I sparked an interest? Reach out………There's nothing to lose,

Currently reading: "Blink" and recently finished "The Goldfinch",
"The Radical Leap Re-Energized" "The Happiness Project", "Gone
Girl", "Fall of Giants", "Three Cups of Tea", etc..
My favorite book of all time is "To Kill A Mockingbird". I read it
hiding under the covers with my flashlight, so my mom wouldn't
catch me after lights out. I think I was about eleven.
I like all music with the exception of Rap and some country. Most
recent concerts ~ Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul McCartney, Stevie
Wonder, Yanni Last CD I listened to was Out of Africa.......
I like all art expression ~Recently I have seen Sam & Del at
the Opera, the musical "Beautiful" and "Kinky Boots"in NYC,
"Wicked",Cavalia, the Beatles "LOVE" show & some live comedy. I
have an annual pass to Balboa Park.
In terms of dining ~ I like everything on the planet with only two
exceptions (scallops and cilantro) Go figure!! . I tend to eat
healthy but enjoy Italian,Thai, real Mexican, seafood, lamb chops.
Also ~ roasted marsh mellows. I grew up looking for and whittling
my own sapling for roasting. I just don't think I could bring
myself to use a coat hanger.
I drink creamy, sweet tea in the morning because of my youth in
England. I like a great Pinot Noir, Molson, Sapphire, Moonshine. In
moderation, of course :) Except for the H20 which I drink all day

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not a "typical" for me. It could be a play, a hike, an easy dinner
with friends. You name it!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Hmmm, then it wouldn't be private.
I'm pretty much an open book in person though.
