I'm a writer (everything from movie reviews to catalogs to my own short stories) and an educator (middle school English/ESL teacher) with a great sense of humor. This summer I volunteered to teach adult English and loved every minute. What a switch to have every one of my students thank me at the end of class!
I am easily amused by silly puns, lively slapstick (think Steve Martin in All of Me) to serious satire. My personal mantra is "Life is rich," though "timing is everything" is a close second.
I enjoy nature and being outdoors, but would rather hike a trail or walk a cityscape than bike, boat or ski. But I've done all of the above and am open to rediscovery. I have never golfed.
I'm cosmopolitan with a little touch of country, loving critters and fresh produce. I gave up camping after my son left home, though if you're good at it I might try again.
I make regular visits to NYC, the Dry Creek Valley, LA (my hometown), Jacksonville, OR, and hopefully more to Seattle where my son lives now.
I'm looking for a caring person who loves to cuddle. I want a man of physical and intellectual confidence, with a lively sense of self and humor. Someone who cares about his work, but is ready to play after a week well done.
MY PERFECT SUNDAY: Doze and dawdle. Dark roast and late breakfast with the Times book review section. Long hike with dog(s) or indie film (wo/pets) depending on the weather. Folding clean laundry in the evening while watching The Good Wife or streaming a Netflix, current or classic. I would love to have someone to join me.
