My self-summary
I enjoy activities that get me outside such as gardening, fishing, walking or hiking, snowshoeing, and kayaking. I also enjoy reading and watching TV, although I usually keep my hands busy while watching a good show. I enjoy new experiences and meeting new people. I love traveling just about anywhere.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm retired from teaching but I still sub a little to be around kids. I love their energy and openness.
I believe in being positive about life and seeing the good in people and situations. My spiritual side is important to me but I am open to all religions unless they are judgmental and negative.
I try to keep up with issues around the globe. Rather than feeling hopeless about the world's problems, I try to find solutions or organizations to support to make the world better. I love learning, whether it's a new activity, or practicing guitar and Spanish.
I’m really good at
I'm good at meeting new people and getting them to talk and feel comfortable. I was an enthusiastic and effective teacher and loved my job every single day. I keep in contact with several former students. I'm also good with dogs that have been neglected or abused and my two dogs and cat are both rescues from the pound.
The first things people usually notice about me
My friendliness and positive attitude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love fiction that broadens my view of life and makes me feel and think. When it comes to movies I am easily entertained by a good story with interesting, believable characters. I enjoy watching Bones, Game of Thrones, and Longmire and my guilty pleasure is The Walking Dead.
I like all kinds of food if it is prepared well and I have company to share it with.
Music is my passion. Going to a live performance is my favorite date! I enjoy rock, folk, bluegrass, alternative, and most other types. I play a few instruments some, so I appreciate talent when I find it.
Six things I could never do without
My dogs, iphone/music player, books, friends, my car, smart TV.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the world and what we are leaving behind for our children. Also, what I can do to help people improve their quality of life. I still spend a lot of time thinking about education; what works and what fails.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing or going to hear music somewhere with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to my dogs sometimes, more than just "sit" and "get down".
You should message me if
...if you want to go listen to some music or explore a new town or place to eat. Also, if you want to go on a hike or float down a river. If you can chuckle while watching The Daily Show, or The NIghtly Show, we are probably compatible politically, although it's not a deal breaker as long as we can talk about the issues. I admit I would love to find a serious, romantic partner, but we would have to be friends first.
