My self-summary
I am positive and open-minded. I try to take responsibility for my life and to remain open to new possibilities. I love travel of all kinds especially road trips where I can adjust my plan based on what the day brings. Now that I am semi- retired from teaching, I would love to travel as often as possible - maybe even a year or more .. I look forward to having time to write and engage in other quiet pursuits.
I am not religious. At all. In fact I am extremely irreverent regarding organized religion. Especially fundamentalist Christianity... Fundamentalists of any religion actually.
What I’m doing with my life
I was a teacher of the visually impaired until retiring in 2012; I worked as a substitute teacher in Minnesota. Now I am moving to Brooklyn - Not sure exactly what I'll do next.
I am trying to reinvent my life and rearrange my priorities... Since retiring, I worked on an organic farm in the west of Ireland, and spent time with family in England.
I also spent a summer in Guatemala exploring and studying Spanish... I discovered a passion for Latin music, and dance- next project: Latin dance lessons.
I like to learn something new everyday - even if it's just a new word or two.
I’m really good at
Learning, making things, and figuring out how things work.
The first things people usually notice about me
... I'm funny and I'm always singing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Eclectic taste in music - Latin music!, reggae, clasic rock, world music, folk, jazz indie; Favorite authors ... Gloria Naylor, Stegner, Mark Haddon, Zora Hurston, Ishmael Reed, Haven Kimmel? favorite movies ...

The six things I could never do without
Travel, my daughters, good books, friends, music, laughter, an interesting project. Oops. That's seven...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the choices I've made in life; where to travel next... - what it means to be human. How to get passion and romance back into my life!
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy hour, taking a weekend trip or maybe spending time with friends. I'd like to be getting out more!

If you are interested...unconventional, and love life.
