I am truly blessed to be healthy and recently retired. I have a very optimistic view of life and want to enjoy every single day I have on this planet. I LOVE music, theater, the arts, gardening, cooking, kayaking, sailing, walking, biking, anything in nature, animals, my grandkids....the list goes on and on. I am a spiritual person, meaning that I meditate and see things in a different perspective than many people (I can explain). I appreciate good friends and being with people that are "down to earth"....the real deal....no phoniness for me. I would love to develop a friendship with someone first and then see how we both feel after that. I believe that at this age, it is good for both people to have their own interests as well as sharing many things together. A good relationship should enhance each other's life....add richness and meaning. I look forward to spending time with someone who is funny and bright and upbeat.
