I am an "earth mother" type who likes to wear sandals and broomstick skirts. I rarely wear makeup, so time has been kind to my skin. I like things simple. I like complex ideas and conversations. But simple foods, simple problems, and simple times.
I have played D&D off and on for decades. I enjoy renfairs and did something called The S.C.A. (historical reenactment) for years, where I learned swordfighting and how to use a light crossbow.
I am a loving and generous woman, however I have also lived long enough to know where my boundaries are and to stick to them.
I am a non-smoker, non-drug user, these are ABSOLUTES for me.
I am fine with men who contact me on here also contacting others and dateing others ... untill we develop a closer relationship ... from THAT point forward I require monogamy from my partner. ALWAYS, I REQUIRE HONESTY and will give the same.
I was a teacher... a substitute for all grades K-12 for several years, and a middle-school science teacher for the last few years that I taught. But, I had to stop working due to health issues. I worked from home as a graphic artist for several years after teaching. When the company that I worked for decided that they no longer needed graphic artist/illustrators they let me, and three other contracted employees, go. After that I went on disability as my ability to walk became more limited (I have osteoarthritice). I remain as active as possible though. I love to go swimming. I go to the zoo, the park, and museums almost every week. I do have to use an electric chair to get around the zoo however.
I am a LARGE woman. Both tall and extra-wide.
I smile and laugh a lot. Smiles are important to me.
My hair is silver-and-white instead of dull gray. My daughter says that she could hold a silver spoon up against my hair and it would almost disappear. She also points out that I have eyes that actually twinkle when I smile. :)
TYPES of books I enjoy, in order of preference: FANTASY (elves, castles, etc); Science Fiction (hard and soft); Historical Mysteries; Autobiographies; Science Text Books; Psychology/Sociology/Anthropology studies; Children's literature;I will read almost anything, as long as it is well written. Poor writing turns me off.
I love books and reading. I am always reading something! I love going to the library.
I REALLY love going to the movies. I like SF/fantasy movies. I like kids movies. I like funny movies. I am developing an ability to enjoy some horror movies, especially the suspense and psychological thrillers. I love vampire and werewolf movies. I hate slasher movies; car wrecks, and explosions, usually turn me off.
Movies I've seen in the past few years that I really enjoyed: AVATAR, Lord of the Rings, BRAVE, The Number 23, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (was surprisingly FUNNY), 1408, Taken, This Means War (hysterical).
Music I enjoy: IRISH, old ballads and epics, Symphony, easy listening, SOME country (without the twang), musicals, 70's stuff

The New Normal
