I am friendly and outgoing,--definitel y a "people person," sensitive, artistic and musical, and enjoy activities that involve the arts. A retired teacher with two masters degrees, I also have loved participating in regional theater productions on Long Island. (Didn't quite make it to Broadway!) I have sung with the Berkshire Music Festival, the Palm Beach Choral Society when in Fl.-- and, for a short time, the Long Island Opera Company. I play tennis four times a week.. it's fun, and great exercise. I also do Pilates training and/or go to the gym. Family and good friends are very important to me. I enjoy traveling, and have visited many interesting countries in Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. I have visited Prague and Israel, (July 2012) and have to say it was truly the trip of a lifetime...I hope to return again, and wish everyone could visit this amazing country--so full of our history...and to see the accomplishments of this tiny, beautiful country is simply amazing--- it should be a source of great pride for us all. My most current visit out of the country was to Ireland, summer 2014.
I am fairly accomplished at portrait painting, my most important hobby, and continue to study this fascinating form of artistic expression. Coco, my cute little Labradoodle, and I enjoy being in the company of friends who are kindhearted, balanced, emotionally and financially secure, intelligent, and have a great sense of humor. Laughter gets us through some of the challenges we face in life, don't you think? That, some good music, a glass of wine and interesting conversation can make for a pleasant meeting. I LOVE life, and look forward to what each new day may bring.....I am definitely a " glass-is-half-full person" and hope you are, too.
Thanks for reading my profile, and look forward to hearing from you. So, don't be shy.
