But first, about me: These are the adjectives that were given when I asked my close friends: vivacious/energetic, open-minded, artistic, free-spirited, funny, loyal, direct and intellectual. ( I don't agree with intellectual. I am quite smart, though.)
I work with adolescents and I still love my work after many years. I was married for 22 years, divorced a few years ago and have a 23 year old daughter and a 20 year old son. I'm ready to open my heart again and while I'm comfortable on my own, I would like to have a partner to explore life and have adventures and fun with; a man who knows himself and who can be strong and reliable as well as soft and loving.
I love making things, drawing, gardening, reading, exploring new places, looking at good art, listening to music and dancing with my dog, working out...actually, sometimes I love working out and sometimes I dread it but I feel so much better when I do that I keep on going. I love the water and have almost always lived on one coast or another.
finding humor in the absurdities of living
Films: I like documentaries and lots of different genres - The Beast of the Southern Wild, anything with Betty Davis, The Silence of the Lambs is one of my all-time favorites, Searching For Sugarman. ...right now I'm blanking on films so I'll add more later.
living near an ocean-I did live in New Mexico for a while. All of the water that was swimmable often had rattle snakes lounging about but the land and sky and sun are beautiful to look at. No fog horns, however.
