My self-summary
Every day is a gift and a new adventure! Happy childhood, lived several places in the U.S. and Africa, have a myriad of creative interests, two professions (that sometimes overlap), grown children, trying to keep a healthful life style, love learning, respect the physical/spiritual/mental balance thing.
My keys to happiness: mixed independent and shared pursuits, humor, a balance of quietness & activity, kind & fun friends, close family.
What I’m doing with my life
I keep busy with work (but have great hours and extended vacations) balanced with enjoying friends/family, adventures, reading, gardening, cooking, pursuing creative interests, learning and exploring new ideas...but looking forward to sharing these and more with a special someone!
I’m really good at
Being optimistic. Enjoying the moment. Thinking creatively. Hugs & being a pal. Quips & other more pragmatic stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm...I'll have to ask the next person I meet
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books – mostly for escapism (witty novels, historical novels, mystery) or avocational learning (cook books, gardening books, How-To books)
Movies – adventure, comedy, foreign, mystery, romance, drama, epic/myth – depends on the mood and company
Shows – TV jags (MadMen, PBS series, etc.) outside music and film events, art shows, garden events
Music – eclectic tastes – old jazz, Big Band, old timey Bluegrass, Rock & Roll, Blues, Hip Hop, ethnic, classical. I like music-related activities: listening, playing it, singing, dancing.
Six things I could never do without
Clean/green environment, friends/family, learning & creating, humor, calm/quiet, fresh food & water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to fit all the things I'd like to do into the hours of today and keep a calm balance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something fun but relaxing – enjoying a walk outside, TGIF with neighbors, sitting on the deck, watching a movie, eating a great dinner, going with a friend somewhere
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...well, that I'll meet someone special to enjoy life with
You should message me if
you are a like-minded, kind, fun and interested in meeting a somewhat unconventional traditionalist
The two of us
