Been living in the NW since the late 70's. I love going out into nature, either hiking or camping. Got my Bachelors at UC in anthroplogy. My interests vary. Besides just hanging out, I love to go for long drives- explore some back roads - new places - ghost towns or just drive around Savie Island. Love to discuss all kinds of things like poetry, music (from Do wop to Beethoven) , kids, travel, meditation, history, reiki, love, relationships, aging, the dream world, the silly ridiculous absurd dreamer (me), death and dying, relationships (for better or worse) , psychology, money, work, health, food , occult, the weather, street paving, whatever. Been ballroom dancing for many years long before there was a craze. I like to bet the horses once in a while. I still go to synagogue once in a while but also seriously meditate – not a fan of political extremism. The far left and right are too extreme for me. Still have a little more time before I retire.
