My self-summary
Looking for my last life-mate (friends first). My life has been on the road less traveled. I have lots of interests and energy, am smart, kind, positive, observant, sensitive, young at heart, and have a dry sense of humor. I'm self-employed. Moved to Eugene (after living in several other places) in 2016 and am not loving it (yet); can you help?

I like quiet and solitude, but am sociable also, am funny with one or a few other people, and more shy in a group. My hair color is genuine. Most photos are recent. My mother and 3 aunts lived into their 90's. Working for a more fair and just world are important to me, far off as those goals currently seem.

What's not appealing to me: drama kings, Fox News fans, or motorbikers (too dangerous), sweating the small stuff, trying to look 40 when I'm 60 , close-mindedness, rants, negative attitudes. I've experienced big ups and downs in life, and would like someone who can relate to that.

Potted life history - daughter of immigrants, grew up in Illinois, became wild and crazy hippie in college, then lived in England for 8 years and became a lawyer there. Returned to the U.S. and lived in New England for 25 years, raised children, had a variety of businesses (from divorce mediation to selling Beanie Babies), then returned to the law, passed the bar and became a practicing U.S. immigration lawyer at age 59. I moved to North Carolina in 2012, and to Eugene in 2016 to join two of my three children and their sweeties.

Write me about yourself, and I'm happy to share more!
