Last year I moved back to California. I wanted to be near family and this area was calling to me. I grew up in Marin but migrated East after college. Like Garrison Keillor I Am Happy to be Here. I am closer with my sister and nephew, enjoy new friends, bike trails, the great food, and the many attractions. The scenery is beautiful wherever I travel.
Others find me to be cheerful, intelligent, thoughtful, relaxed, playful, and attentive. I am open-minded and liberal, humble yet assertive. I fly along well below my age, keeping fit and young at heart. I have learned from my experiences. I sum, the Golden Rule and listening and understanding before responding. In relationships I am easy to be with, always looking for the fairest solution to a problem and a way to move forward.
Outside I bike, hike, sail, working in the garden. I like diving to 50 ft to look at sponges and fish or ski blue square slopes. I dance...(Have tux. Will travel.), Argentine Tango is my favorite though I like swing and ballroom dancing too. I race sailboats but also like day sailing or sailing to destinations, maybe to stay overnight. I am the one with the guide book but not in a car. Favorite trips have been cycling through Wales and sailing in Greece. I have many places picked out where I would like to charter a sailboat. Otherwise, I enjoy theatre, films (especially foreign, indie, unusual), museums. I play golf, enjoy camping, and other outdoor pursuits. I am adventurous about food and enjoy cooking. Cooking a meal with a friend is as enjoyable as going out to a restaurant.
Ultimately, it’s about an emotional connection, attraction, and sharing and making a life together. It would be great to have an enthusiastic and adventurous travel companion, literally, metaphorically.
I appreciate an email and then to talk.
I still like holding a newspaper..New York Times or The Economist
I like classical music, blues, big band sounds, tango to dance. I like Cole Porter songs, Nat Cole, Eva Cassidy, and there is a Diana Krall CD that seems to stay in the player.
I like indie and foreign films; I check out old movies from the library. I have binged on past seasons of Mad Men, the British version of House of Cards, Downton Abbey
I like almost any cuisine, but draw the line at okra. The food in the Bay Area is great, whether from the stores or in restaurants.
