My self-summary
Yes, I am over 70! But I do not look or act it. Please, if you are in your 40s, or 50's, do not send me a text. I am looking for a real relationship with men who are close to my age. If you are in your 60's that is good enough. It would be great if I could find a man who likes to garden, read books and discuss them along with politics and what is happening in the world. I love to cook so if he wants to join me in the kitchen we can make some great food. I am looking for a partner and a friend. Lots of people on this site are looking for one night stands, I am not. Hopefully you are a thinker and do things as well. Must care about other people and the world as a whole. Has concerns for what kind of a world we are leaving for our grandchildren. Please no libertarians or radical Republicans. I do not believe that corporations are people and the only thing I have seen trickle down is water in a fountain, in a rain forest and off a glacier.
Hopefully you too are inquisitive and open to learning new things.
I am into art, Jazz, pop & classical music, nature, ideas and like to discuss many subjects. I am looking for someone to have fun with and more. If you do not have a picture I will not respond. If you do not have a profile I will not respond.
I have a lot to offer the right man.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping other to have more fulfilling lives is very important to me. I enjoy watching and encouraging my grandchildren to learn and grow, they enrich my life. They make me laugh. They are not biologoically related to me, I adopted their Dad years ago when he came here from Nicaragua and dated my daughter. My daughter and he are still friends, but he is married to a beautiful woman that also calls me Mom.
I love to read autobiographies, Biographies, non-fiction, historical novels and science. Belong to a book club. Like to write. Have an art collection and enjoy art.
Love to cook and am considered a gourmet by my friends. (But I'm
really not) Have over 17 rose bushes in my garden. Spending time gardening is one of my favorite past times. Favorite flower Sweet Pea's and Stock.
Love good conversation and interesting people. Am more liberal than conservative. That is an understatement. By the way, you don't have to have my political beliefs. If we think just a like it would be boring. And no one has ever called me boring.
I make an effort to work out or walk a few a week. Swimming is my all time favorite way to work the muscles.
I’m really good at
Interacting with many different types of people, nationalities and cultures. Enjoy learning new thngs.
Love to spend time with my Grandchildren. They think I am a great granny. (not neccesarily old)

I have so many favorite books. To Kill a Mocking Bird, Daughter of Fortune, The Year of Magical Thinking, Killing Johnny Fry, way to many to list here. I like and write poetry. Love Dorthy Parker to Rumi.
Movies: Commedies, art films, documentatries. One of my all time favorite movies is "Room With A View" Very scienic and romantic and great charecter interaction between the mother, daughter and son, and of course the winning suitor!
Music: jazz and blues is probably what I listen to most, followed by pop, classic rock and classical.
Food: When I am home I cook a wide variety of dishes from home made soups, salads and everything from Turkey dinner to stews and many vegetable dishes. Japanese, Chinese, Italian are what I like to eat when I go out.

I am concered about what has happened to this country financially and politically over the last 50 years and the lack of awareness of just how much fosil fuels, de-forestation, are taking a toll on this beautiful planet. I am also concerned that people are not encouraged to have knowledge of and safe use of birth control.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night. If I am home, I am probably watching HBO and Bill Maher or PBS with Bill Moyer. Or out with friends, listening to music, or at the local book store or home reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am pretty much an open book, what you see, is what you get!
You should message me if
If you are intellegent, interested in books and politics, nature, music, art and good fresh food. Are you romantic and looking for a long term relationship, because that is what I am looking for.
The two of us
