“ From Ireland and South Africa. My main qualities are: affectionate and warm, loving and nurturing, also kind-hearted . Empathetic and introspective, while rather patient most of the time. Romantic and sentimental. Upbeat, with a dry Irish wit and a love of writing and literautre. Creative and cultured, fun to be around.. Times spent with family and the chidren who light up my life are cherished when we're together since they're scattered around the world. I enjoy a panoply of the arts... Surrounded by nature and countryside and ocean soothes my soul, walking and exploring places are fun, working out - all of which leads to a vibrant joie de vivre that keeps me active and healthy in mind, body and spirit , and curious for all I can still learn and do. I endeavor to live my life with integrity, passion and compassion.. Traveling and experiencing different cultures expands my mind, which makes me realize how fortunate I am.
