My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update 8/18/14 Three months to retirement. I'm so excited!

Those closest to me describe me as active, adventurous, sweet, smart, independent, tenacious, nonjudgmental, and a good listener with a sympathetic ear.

I find inspiration during tough times in nature and physical activity. Music and good friends always lift me up, as do quiet moments of meditation most anywhere. My two grown children are definitely a source of comfort and inspiration to me.

Though one's interests and activities are certainly only one of many things to consider when looking for a compatible partner, I believe it's a place to start, and a good way to connect initially. I'm an avid cyclist and cross-country skier, I do yoga regularly, walk daily, and during the off-cycling and ski season, swim to stay in shape. Also love to dance, and though I haven't for a while, I'm sure it would come back. I especially like to swing.

Music is essential to my well-being. Listening at home I prefer Pop, rock, mellow jazz, some alternative, but if the music is live, I'm pretty wide open (a few exceptions would be rap, heavy metal, really sad blues). I like to harmonize and fiddle around on the piano. Attend 1 or 2 plays a year, occasional movies (like the small neighborhood theaters), art galleries and historical museums, and of course good food, (I'm partial to Thai and anything caramel). I have a large extended family in the area, with lots of youngsters to enjoy. I keep connected through frequent family gatherings.

I've been fortunate to have traveled some, but want to do more. I've visited many countries in Europe, including a wonderful bike and barge trip to The Netherlands followed by 2 weeks in Italy. I like studying the history and culture of the places I visit. Planning a trip to Greece in May; after that, who knows - New Zealand, Australia, or perhaps places closer to home. Traveling with someone special is much more fun. What's on your bucket list?

Although I’m quite adjusted to single life after a long marriage, I miss having someone special to share the joys (and sorrows) of life with. An ideal partner (understanding none of us ever are) would be kind, gentle, educated, have a wide range of interests, (hopefully some of the aforementioned), a sense of adventure - and humor, live a healthy lifestyle, and have the ability to hold up their end of a conversation. In exchange, I feel I have the capacity to bring these same qualities/experiences to the table as well.

My mode for dating is to get to know you as a friend, and see what develops from there. I look forward to meeting you!

I do read a lot. Just finished "Born to Run" non-fiction about the Tarahumara natives of Mexico known for their barefoot long-distance running. Fascinating story. Another recent favorite was "Zeitoin" - the true story of a Syrian man and his family living in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. He decided to stay after the storm.

Music: Cold Play, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, Clapton, Fitz and the Tantrums, much more.

Movies: Comedy, drama, documentaries. Don't like violence. Prefer vintage theaters.

Food: Anything caramel, Thai.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Weather conditions to plan my outdoor activities, ideas for retirement, the questions on OK Cupid (way too much time on the questions!). Usually I'm pretty much in the moment. I don't project too far ahead.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually home unwinding from the work week, but occasionally with friends for dinner or a First Friday event.
