I asked some friends to help me describe myself and they came up with cheerful, intelligent and generous. I am an outgoing person who is definitely cheerful. I'm well read and well educated but the characteristic I like the best is generous. And by generous they meant that I am willing to adapt to other people and their interests. My own interests include opera, classical music, literary fiction, live theatre. I like gardening and long walks. Travel and museum going are high on my list of things to do. Most of my socializing is in classes, going out to dinner and attending performances. But I am a reasonably traditional woman so I enjoy knitting and cooking. Mostly, I am a true extrovert who is energized by being with people.
