I'm an easy going person who feels at home in the outdoors (I'll hike anywhere if a waterfall is waiting for me). Also, am a long -lasting enthusiast of opera, classic music, and bagpipe music, (yes, bagpipe music!) which balances the picture. I have an upbeat, quirky sense of humor (think "The Far Side"), and an open-minded, embracing attitude towards all, (no, not quite Mother Teresa, but you're getting warm). I've lived in several countries, taking me from North America to the Middle East to Europe and back again. Whew, what a roller coaster ride! And I'm ready for a second run.
