I'm mellow, friendly, considerate, optimistic. I appreciate simplicity and tranquility; contentment over thrills/frills; no glitz, glamour, games. I'm grateful, not materialistic. Responsible, financially and otherwise. Informal in dress, food, approach to life. "City sensibilities," but love a cabin-by-the-lake lifestyle. I love exploring and interacting, long walks with you, fortuitous discoveries, travel, reading, plays, movies, expanding horizons.
I was a professor for a decade and government administrator for over two. Lived in many places, had many careers-within-careers.
Widowed after a wondrous 13-year marriage. An earlier 20-year marriage ended in divorce, her choice.
