I am disabled by spinal arthritis so I can't take the long long walks/hikes I once could either. Walking is great exercise though and I'm trying to do more of it and bike riding too. I find life an adventure, a day to day measure; years apart measures. I have enjoyed my life and experienced many successes as well as falls. Some moments of my life are stark, sudden memories; other moments blazon exuberant triumph; still others represent the most meaningful minutes of my life; the birth of my children, an example. Through all this, I have been blessed with a good mind, a good life, and good friends, my family. I am reminded of Gibran " the deeper the hole that sorrow carves the more joy your heart can hold..." But rather, the more blessings one has received can leave one more sensitive to the lacks or deprivations of others.
I am petite and too thin at the moment, but I always thought I was cute, not beautiful. Then I grew up!
Nor am I vain, really, but beauty is as beauty does, and I am a nice person. Did I mention fishing? I grew up in Florida and I love most freshwater fish. Most ocean fish and sea food too. I can make bouillabaisse, I can clean abalone, and I even like filleting fish. I like doing a lot of different things, enjoy most types of music, am open to new experiences. I am an unapologetic naturist as well.
I am rather eclectic; my mom says they threw away the mold. I just enjoy being myself, love my kids, (23 and 28 years old) and work/hope for the best in my own optimistic way. I enjoy making my friends laugh and love being witty. I am non judgmental and expect that of my friends. I can be very passionate with the right person, and enjoy the sexual side of life too. I love kissing and cuddling. Gee, that's all I can cover tonight, I'll add as time permits.
Oh, yeah, I'm looking for friendship and perhaps more. I am charmed by romance and enjoy passion. I would like to fall in love one more time.
Finally, as for me, I'm not done yet. Who knows what tomorrow brings any of us. But, I expect it to be good and to remain true to who I am.
