My self-summary
I love orchids.......thus the name

Apologies for the old photo of me, c. 2000. When I can figure out how to add a current one, I will. Today, I look about the same, just some gray hair in the front.

People say that I am entrepreneurial. I enjoy being creative.
I typically have a very positive outlook on life.

I have been on my own for a while; I had someone special in my life for the past 20 years; sadly, he passed away. I am truly ready to move on.

Having a partner would make life a bit sweeter. I am physically and emotionally healthy and don't really have any "baggage".

I am originally from Chicago north suburbs, but here in CU since 1970; I am a hybrid of suburban and college town.
What I’m doing with my life
I try to savor what each day brings. I thrive on spending time with family and good friends and on projects. Long time retired, I enjoy spending much of my time with hobbies, writing, taking classes, doing volunteer work and embarking on short trips.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at being dependable , loyal, and at being friendly and jumping in to help others.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often notice my smile, that I am easy to talk to, and that I am quite industrious when I tackle a project.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have no particular favorites. It often depends on my mood. My preference in music is live music, especially classical, and I do enjoy the time I spend at Krannert concerts. When it comes to movies, I like going to the Art Theater as well as mainstream movies. As far as food, I prefer healthy fare.
Six things I could never do without
1. a loving family and awesome friends
2. physical exercise
3. oportunities to be creative
4. access to healthy foods
5. live music, especially classical
6. great places to walk & enjoy nature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking about ways to make the last third of my life as satisfying and enjoyable as the first sixty-plus years.
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy Friday nights at home or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
By choice, I awake early, but sometimes I'm not very peppy later at night.
You should message me if
..you are in a good space in your life and ready to be in a monogamous relationship with someone who takes commitment seriously.
