I'm a writer (everything from movie reviews to catalogs to my own short stories) and an educator--middle school English and drama, and now adult ESL to university students. (Still can't get over being thanked after every class!)
I am easily amused, from silly puns to lively slapstick (think Steve Martin in All of Me) to standup and 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.
