I am a very positive, fun-loving person who genuinely likes people. I love making new friends, while enjoying diverse interests both with them and by myself. I am very flexible in body and mind. I have been practicing yoga for over 30 years. It has helped me cope with all the trials and tribulations life has to give. I find yoga and meditation help me bring a balance to my life by allowing me to feel a certain amount of calmness and peacefulness in the fast world around me. It hasalso kept me in great shape. Limber enough to keep up with the 20 year olds that are in my class. My teacher once told us "If you keep doing yoga, you'll be able to stand on your head when you are 90." Well, I couldn't do it very easily at 30 and don't really think I could do it now. However, I wont let that stop me from getting the feeling that I could conquer the world after yoga.
Enthusiasm is how I greet every new thing I try. I love experiencing new classses, activities and of course travels.I don't think I have ever been to
a place that I didn't absolutely love, whether it was Volo Bog, Seven Mile Fair near Milwaukee or the Hag Sophia in Istanbul. There is just so much beauty around us to enjoy and so much for us to learn. My semi retirement has allowed me the time tojoin book clubs and take classes on Cuba, Woodrow Wilson and Documentary Films.I have made so many great new friends. It has afforded me the opportunity to babysit for my eighteen month old granddaughter. There is nothing like seeing the wonderful world around us through the eyes of a grandchild and what could be better than seeing her
face light up when she sees Bubie.
I really enjoy being spontaneous. This past year I have tried zipling through the forest, sand volleyball at the beach, and zumba lessons to try to learn to shake my boodie. One of my favorite new things was "snuba" diving. I guess I shouldn't think of it s such a big accomplishment since our instructor told us "if you can walk and breath you can snuba dive". I did put on that 70 lb helment and climb 20ft below sea level. What a great way to see the world from a different perspective! It was unbelievable to walk on the bottom of the sea. I left like a spaceman walking on the moon, I probably looked like one too. But, who cares it was great fun. Life's too short, it's time to try new things !
