I wake up every morning with passion for the new day but I'm missing the partner to hug in the morning when the sun peeks through the window. I'm open, honest, creative, and straight-forward. I'm ready to share life's joys from good movies, concerts, and books to fine dining and cooking. I'm committed to progressive Democratic politics, especially this election year. I treasure real intimacy in a relationship and my two, now grown, wonderful step-daughters remind me in so many ways that there's nothing as magical as family love and caring.
