I am semi-retired and enjoy the arts and all that Charlottesville has to offer - Paramount Theater (the Met in high def) and chamber music at Old Cabell Hall. I am a pianist and lover of classical music. I am warm, friendly and nuturing, but do better in small groups. I love children and have volunteered in literacy programs for the past 8 years. I have two grandchildren I adore and a daughter who is my best friend (too bad she lives 3000 miles away!). I am well-read and tend to side with the underdog. I don't consider myself athletic, but I regularly exercise at my local health club. I value my friendships and lead an active, though not frenetic, life.
