I have a full and active life and miss the companionship and affection of a primary partner. I am moving toward the end of what has been a wonderful career taking care of women and delivering babies. Ready to wind down, not quite ready to retire, and having fun thinking about what the next step might be. I have two grown daughters in Boston so I am there frequently. I love the outdoors - x-c ski, hike, snowshoe, pedal, paddle, etc., and live performance esp. theater. I am a member of clay studio and have been working on handbuilt, functional pottery. I spend leisure time playing (indoors and out) and sharing meals (in and out) with friends and family, and quiet time at home creating homey space, reading, writing and general puttering. I am looking for someone with some overlapping interests, and, mostly, a shared sensibility in the places that connect us. A sense of humor matters.
