I am open minded and liberal but not too political. I love being outside. I also like cities but find my center when in serene places - woods, mountains, water... Love music but love quiet just as much. Enjoy a game of cribbage with a competitivefun opponent or would train a willing participant. Love talking and - sorry guys -but I also like to hear you responding or even initiating a discussion sometimes too! I have lived in many places but I have found my home in Maine. My home setting feels rural but I am only 15 minutes from the city of Portland if I want a nice meal, movie or just to walk around and people-watch. Enjoy traveling. Deeply value my good friends and family. I know who I am and am honest, loving and loyal. I believe in respect and kindness towards others. In my spare time I enjoy creating mosaic art and am learning to grow bonsai. I am a professional but it doesn't define me. I love quiet times at home, reading, walking, hiking, traveling, music and movies. Summers on my porch with a glass of wine, the sounds of the wind and the birds and the sunset are lovely alone and would be even nicer shared.
