My friends would describe me as enthusiastic and down to earth. I am devoted to my kids (not young), work (environmental field), hiking and the outdoors, reading, keeping up with the news and politics (NOT Fox), travel, watching movies, and drinking dry red wine with friends. I have a passion for kids and people with disabilities. Music?--generally rock n roll--I grew up in the 70s after all (though I like the newer stuff too). I'm basically a positive person who likes to laugh (dry humor) and cry (movies), and who treasures relationships and family and friends most of all. I'm looking to meet someone who is open, articulate, non-judgmental, likes to talk about everything, and can make me laugh.
