My self-summary
I am first of all, an honest person. I believe that being truthful and genuine are paramount, and that we make our own happiness. If we are lucky to find someone to add to that happiness, then that is wonderful :-) but let me be clear, I'm not looking to jump into a relationship neither am I looking to jump into a physical relationship right away. If either of these are your goal then you should not bother contacting me.. I am a slow mover. I believe its most important to get to know a person very well before moving the relationship along at breakneck speed.
I believe in living a healthy lifestyle and love being active- I have ice climbed, sky dived, I love to kayak, mountain bike (on the road or trail), I run road races occasionally, hike, snowshoe, and enjoy BBQs and fire pits. I like camping, bass fishing, traveling, movies, cooking in or dining out, I like the blues, classic rock, celtic music & 'classical' music, and really enjoy music from the 60s and 70s- but every decade has great music really. I don't watch much TV.. I tend to watch movies or Netflix TV series/movies. I do enjoy going out to the theater from time to time. I am energetic, have a positive attitude, I have a great sense of humor, and I love good conversation. I enjoy crosswords, cryptoquips, & the origin of words. Of course there's more but I should save some things for future conversations ;-)

If you aren't at least moderately active, and do not have a healthy lifestyle I'm afraid this won't work for us.
I am actually quite content and happy. I am interested in meeting new people and IF there is a spark between us, to see where that goes.
I hope that wasn't too up front but i don't play games and feel It's important to know where each person stands. :-)
If you feel you would be a good match with me, let's connect and see where this goes!
What I’m doing with my life
I am an educator. More details when I get to know you better
I am living life moment by moment and savoring every single one!
I am active and love life from the smallest thrill to the biggest.
I’m really good at
Communication, research, budgeting, teaching, helping others, parenting, being a friend, and I am an amateur artist.
The first things people usually notice about me
Visually, my smile.
Personality wise, I think people recognize right away that I am very friendly, open, funny, energetic, and loving... but I am no push over.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I always have a book going... at least one if not more :-) I've most recently read a bunch of Tess Gerritsen books, prior to that the Avalon series. Other books include Seed of Sarah, The Goldfinch, Shadow of Night, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Hunger Games series, I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Kite Runner, and A Thousand Splendid Suns, both incredible reads! Also, The Discovery of Witches, Proof of Heaven (extremely interesting ... a story about a neurosurgeon's view regarding life after death), Barefoot Sisters:Southbound, Snow in the Kingdom (signed copy by the author.. a fellow ice climber :-), the Twilight series (a Yankee swap gift received at a work party! LOL), and many books in the Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell.
I really enjoyed the following movies: Warrior, all the Lord of the Rings movies, the Hobbit, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Color Purple, Tombstone, Cold Mountain, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, Touching the Void, My Cousin Vinnie, ... so many. But these are the ones that come to mind at 11:26 PM ...
The six things I could never do without
My two wonderful children - rather young men, now.
Hope and a positive outlook
My friends
Intelligent conversation on a fairly regular basis
Being active
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life (its beauty, surprises, its joys, its sorrows, its challenges, rewards, the essence of it, and where that essence goes if anywhere)
Love.. and ALL that it entails (or at least as much of it as my mind can comprehend)
How amazing it is to be where I am, and to discover myself more and more each day!
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights I may take my dog for a nice walk, then spend time at home, or with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That will be revealed later :-)
You should message me if
You have a similar belief that living a healthy, active lifestyle is very important, if you love to laugh, if you enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, running, hiking, kayaking, bass fishing, boating, snowshoeing, camping, interesting/intelligent conversation, walks, red wine, an ice cold beer on a very hot day, single malt scotch, music, dancing (? Ok that may be a long shot but my fingers are crossed ;-)... fire pits, BBQ, nature, traveling, the tropics... on and on.
