Friendly, outgoing and empathetic with a big smile -- a hug always waiting, I am a quiet person too. Sweet, friends tell me. I've had a varied and interesting life, a bit unconventional. I'm a grandma -- what a blessing! I love to travel and take trains when I can. Day trips in beautiful California are a thrill. Is that something you enjoy too? Let's go someplace! My favorite thing is helping kids learn to read. I'm independent and do well living on my own (except for the computer), but I miss having a partner in life. I'm looking for a good heart. I admire kindness, integrity and flexibility. Fun is good too!
