I'm a slim, athletic, winsome, free-lance writer seeking lover and friend for sharing adventures. Interests include music, travel, theater, tennis, New England, ethnic cuisine and movies with friends. I love to visit new places, learn about new things, need help with spelling, and miss having a special friend. I'm optimistic, generally even-tempered, warm, a good listener, fun, kind, empathetic, like to laugh and be useful. I've found kindred spirits in Unitarian Universalist community. Now that I'm retired I have time to travel and relax. Went on African safari in October 2012. Planning trips to Budapest, Prague, hiking in Lake District in England, and rafting down Colorado RIver. Do some freelance science writing, volunteer at schools, and play piano.
