Fired up and ready to go with friendliness, intelligence and a sense of humor. Music, art and dance have played a large part in my life, centering around the study of piano, from Bach to Gershwin. I enjoy museums, and have collected some engaging pieces of art. Keeping fit is a priority. I belong to a Health and Fitness Spa and exercise on a regular basis. Although I'm a retired Language Arts Consultant, I'm keeping active with volunteer work in the field of literacy. My life has been filled with travel, most recently to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I am a citizen ambassador to the People's Republic of China where I visited schools and climbed the Great Wall. I am able to cook in any cuisine, take culinary arts classes, and enjoy entertaining and playing Bridge. Adding flowers from my garden gives the occasion a special ambiance. I'm spirited outgoing and romantic.
