I would like to find a nice single man who appreciates the wonders of nature and who would like to go exploring with me.
Helping the indigent and needy of our society is very important to me - call me a "bleeding heart". I believe that EVERYONE is entitled to health care and that our broken system needs to be repaired, and soon. Wouldn't it be nice if we all cared for one another and did not let greed and power get in the way?! It truly does "take a village" to make life better and safer for all.
I believe in manmade global warming and am scared to death of what our ecological future holds. It is very alarming to me to see how quickly the world climate has changed in such a short amount of time and how short-sighted, greedy, and self-centered the main decision-makers of the world are.
In a more lighthearted tone, I am very sentimental and still have many of my sons' school art work, etc. I have 2 sons, one 24 and the other 26. My youngest son has 2 years left at IU School of Dentistry and is very busy learning to sculpt teeth out of wax, among other dentist-kind of things. My 26 year old has just started back to school to finish his degree in computer science. Both of my sons are very bright (youngest one graduated Salutatorian of his high school class and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa). I'm not a proud momma or anything! ;-) They are both nice people, just wish I could spend more time with them.
My mother is in a nursing home in Bloomington, and I drive down to visit her about once a month to spend an afternoon keeping her company. B-town is where I was born and raised - it has changed immensely since the 70's!!! Too much traffic there these days!
I have a very bossy and vocal cat who keeps me company (the one in my profile pic). I think he is lonely since we moved from the house I co-habitated in with my ex, as we had 4 cats there and now Jesse (my cat) does not have any "brothers" to play with. Not sure I want another cat, though, due to expense and litter pans!
Please drop me a line if any of the above sounds like anything you are looking for in a companion.
Movies . . . I just saw the movie, "The Help", and want to see it again! I love the movies "Chocolat", "The Shawshank Redemption", "Edward Scissorhands", "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?", and most old classic movies from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. I love musicals, live or on film (love to sing along with musicals I know but only at home). I am not a huge fan of violent movies.
TV . . . Science documentaries (Nova, etc), PBS News Hour, Colbert Report, Meet the Press, and local news.
Music . . . lots of different genres, but not really loud music any more as I sat way too close to the stage at many live rock concerts when younger and destroyed my ears!!! Female singers tend to draw my attention more than others - Jennifer Warnes, Cindi Lauper, Jewel at the beginning of her career, Linda Ronstadt, Carol King, Lara Nero, etc. I do enjoy listening to Jason Mraz, and I saw him in concert in September, 2013.
How I can make a difference.
