I am a positive and optimistic person, with a good (sometimes wry) sense of humor. When I asked my youngest daughter how she would describe me, she told me that I am very warm, empathetic and compassionate, and a good listener. I try to be health conscious and stick to mostly good food choices, exercise regularly and overall am pretty fit. I love the outdoors and going on long walks with friends.I also like swimming for an hour about 3 times a week. I enjoy listening to music - folk, rock, ballads, classical music - from oldies to contemporary, including the Beatles, the Stones, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Queen, Alanis Morisette, Adelle, Sara Barreilles and Amy Winehouse just to mention a few artists. Sometimes, I enjoy reading or listening to audiobooks. History, historical novels and fantasy are my guilty pleasures.
My 4 adult children are an integral part of my life, and it is important to me to spend quality time with them.
