I am most happy sharing my heart and home with family and friends. I have two very accomplished sons and three wonderful young grandchildren. I am playful with my grandchildren blowing bubbles in the wind, jumping hopscotch, and dressing up as a skunk for Halloween--by request. I am attentive to teaching and guiding my grand-ones in as many ways as possible--from grinding wheat berries into flour to modeling always telling the truth.
I have many friends. I most enjoy preparing a chef-quality meal for them in my gourmet kitchen--everything from appetizers, to entree, to dessert. We often end the evening with a game of Scrabble or Rummy Cubes.
I am dedicated to my career in higher education. It is a privilege to help others succeed in their personal and professional goals.
The arts sustain my soul. I wonder at the expression of the human spirit whether humorous or poignant, subtle or powerful. I have recently discovered my creative spirit as a fused glass artist.
The ocean gives me new life. I travel to Hawaii every year to snorkel, kayak, boogie board, and swim with dolphins. Crashing waves and the exploding volcano are testament to mother nature.
I am looking for someone to share the rest of life's journey with me--someone who is confident, sensitive, respectful, loving. We will share passion and romance, cherish good times and overcome difficult ones, make each other stronger and softer, and respect each other as friend and lover.
