My self-summary
I like to think I have a good heart and generous nature. I'm creative and love brainstorming new ideas. I am outspoken and very often funny as hell. I like the outdoors but do not hunt or fish. (Although I enjoy going out in a boat while someone else fishes) I enjoy walking and the occasional bike ride. I love to read. I am a talented shopper and love finding great deals.

The term liberal applies to me and I must say I am pretty tolerant of everything but intolerance. I try to have compassion and put myself in the other person's situation to see why they are the way they are. It doesn't always work. I can't stand or understand mean spiritedness. There is enough abundance for everyone and we need to stop living in an I, me, mine mindset.

From the above, you might think me humorless. Not true, I love to laugh and make jokes and enjoy word play. It is so easy to make me laugh. I love live comedy that is clever but not mean. I love to exchange ideas in conversation that opens my mind to new thinking.

But most of all I try to be kind.
What I’m doing with my life

After dedicating the last 7 years to very elderly parents, both have passed away. I have no regrets about the time spent and know I gave them a very good end of life.

New job, new adventures, maybe even a new love?
I’m really good at
Nurturing, listening, taking care of people. I love to feed others and entertain in my home. I am a problem solver. I understand resources and how to find them. I write well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I truly do not know. I hope it is my kindness, passion and energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a voracious reader with many favorite authors. I enjoy Terry Pratchett, Charlaine Harris, Janet Evanovich, Carl Hiaasan on the popular side, but have many books from lesser known authors and a large collection of humor from the earlier part of the 20th century such as Robert Benchely and James Thurber. I like good writing and especially enjoy well read books on cd.

Well acted thrillers, romantic comedies, comedy, plot driven films with minimal explosions and not too much blood. I have seen a ton of movies and know what I don't like almost more than being able to articulate what I do like.

Music? Hmmm... Lyle Lovett, k.d. lang, Paul Simon, Los Lonely Boys, Little Feat, so many more. Debussy, Ravel, and NO OPERA, except Carmina Burana.

Food with flavor! Asian, Mexican, Indian, Italian. Really good breakfast, soup, and chocolate deserts. Fresh berries, fresh anything. (Maybe we should discuss this over a meal.)
Six things I could never do without
My daughters, now grown and on their own, and my grandsons.
Books! "Books will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no books."
Physical touch
Chocolate (although if it was a matter of life and death... I'd choose life without chocolate)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend some time thinking about how nice it would be to share closeness and touch and laughter with someone I adored. I spend some time thinking that I would rather be alone than settle for less than someone who loved and accepted me for who I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, alone, but not lonely. I would like to be spending time with a friend, out dancing or listening to music or a show. But I would be just as happy playing cards or Boggle or watching a video.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am an open book. What you see is what you get. I don't know how to play games. I will not be shy and open up later. Ask me a question, if I think it is any of your business, I will answer. Can't say fairer than that.
You should message me if
If you like what you see, if you are real, if you can hold up your end of a conversation, if you can support yourself and have an open mind as to what you think of as your "type". I am different, and different is good.

The two of us
