I work in the social services field where I've been for six years, but I've done a lot of things in life, as far as work, and particularly liked being a sports writer, a news writer, and radio journalist; a book seller at the "mystical' Bodhi Tree, and being a political activist to help create change in society. My interests include people and animals, and all living things.
I'm an "optimistic" person--and I'm a "down to earth" Midwesterner. I think I'm loving, romantic, realistic.... independent, but respectful-- loyal, heartfelt and sometimes funny. I'm looking for a woman who can appreciate the same, and has time to share life. Compassion for others a plus.
I've traveled a little; walked cities of Tokyo, Managua, hitchhiked to Skopje after walking Athens; taken a train in Winter to Glasgow from London, walked Rio, Vienna, London, Mexico, Zurich, Bern, Tel Aviv, and Dubrovnik. Been in much of the US and some of the South. I'm from Omaha.
My walking haunt now is the Santa Monica Palisades, above the ocean, where I walk most mornings. I wear out shoes.
I like to learn about where I live, and in my free time, I love to explore LA , and SoCal.
I travel by light rail, Amtrak, walking, bus, bicycle, or car; locally--from Chinatown to Ventura, from the Anza to Santa Monica. (Once I took public transportation back from Anza Borrego desert, to prove to myself it could be done - hint: LA via San Diego will get you home).
Am decidedly left wing, but as someone once said--I'm not necessarily trying to change the world, but am more interested trying to keep it from changing me.
