I have raised a family and they are now all well on their own. While they mean the world to me, as a widow of several years, I've spent some time looking first inward then forward. I prefer a casual and easygoing lifestyle, cooking healthful food, staying active without obsessing, invigorated by warm weather rather than cold. While not extravagant, my home is comfortable and warm and I enjoy working in the yard and garden for the fresh air and for the opportunity to commune with nature. And, sunshine makes me happy.
I am inspired by art, theatre, music, dance and conversation that compels me to think or just to feel, and broadens my outlook. I love the excitement and momentum of the city as well as the peaceful beauty of the country, the sights, sounds and scents of the outdoors no matter where I am. I continually strive to expand my awareness and understanding of politics and the fast-changing world around me. I have a great sense of empathy, the ability to find inner strength when most needed and a persistent conviction that the best is yet to be.
Sensing time passing ever more quickly, I have enthusiasm for life, an immense curiosity and a desire to experience, enjoy and make the best of every moment. Although I am self-sufficient and live well independently, I long for the shared experiences, thoughts, dreams, laughter, the knowing glances that speak volumes between two people who share a common bond, and for always having a hand to hold.
I am hoping to meet a gentleman who will share my enthusiasm for life and love, who understands what it takes to build that common bond to last a lifetime someone who shares my interests and wants to share his with me, who will be open and without pretense, laughs easily and loves deeply.
