I love animals. I own two huge dogs, who are the loves of my life.
I also take care of barncats and believe strongly in spay/neuter programs.
My dogs are Newfoundlanders. The most loyal and overbearing dogs one can own. As Lord Byron wrote, "all the virtues of man, with none of his vices". Try swimming with a newf, or coming in from a boat ride. I've had this breed for over twenty years, and although I keep saying this is it, will probably wind up with yet another Newfoundlander.
I am totally into my 3 older teenaged boys, and love nothing more than sitting down to a huge meal with all of us together.
I am a young 52, both mentally and physically and require the same from you.
I consider myself to be fit. I practice yoga on my own as often as possible. I also drop in to class from time to time, just to keep me on track. By no means am I a fitness freak though. My preferences are wool and cotton over Spandex any day. And I don't believe that labels can make us any fitter.
Music is a huge part of my life. My roots are in Van Morrison and John Martyn, but will listen to most any music as long as it's good. I've been listening to a lot of Daniel Lanois, Wallflowers, Ryan (not Brian) Adams, Emmylou Harris and lots of indy. There are so many great musicians out there. Lately, I find the East coast putting the rest of Canada to shame which is reflective both musically and literary wise.
I love dining on my front porch in summer and always hope a guitar or two finishes up the evening.
