My self-summary
~ "A Life Lived in Fear is a Life Half Lived" ~
I am a constantly evolving person that is self-sufficient, can change my own light bulbs or put in a car battery if necessary, however, it's nice to have able bodied assistance. I can boldly handle time alone & so not a 24/7 needy individual. Should a beach, a cozy fireplace, a hiking trail or the Eiffel Tower (not the one in Vegas) present itself then that would be a bonus. Partners to me Compliment/Support one another, they don't complete them or make for their happiness. You've lived life, some bad & some good...and haven't given up on the Good.

{Little about the Serious Side of me} ~ I work in the healthcare world of organ/tissue donation as an educator & family support counselor to potential organ donor families. I have been doing this rewarding work for a long time and I couldn't envision myself doing anything else...my donor "families" & my hospital healthcare teams teach me something new everyday! And that is why/how I have learned that Life is precious, fleeting, to be treasured and so I don’t worry about the “dirty dishes” in the sink…
What I’m doing with my life
“Life should Not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, apple martini or fresh cider in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, ‘Woo Hoo! What a Ride!’
