Have lived many exciting adventures, hopefully achieved a certain amount of wisdom along the way. Have passion for many things. Love dancing- all kinds, savor reading-even more than chocolate- and especially savor reading in bed. Spent my early years in graphic arts- segued to practicing medicine - now retired and currently woodworking - planar and on the lathe. I get great joy acquiring new skills, and am open to more.Enjoy theater, good films, concerts,etc. Love old rock & roll, gospel, the Staples, Marvin Gaye, Ry Cooder, Lacy J Dalton, JD Lang, Asbury Jukes, Geoff Muldaur, Mandy Patinkin, Latin music, Caribbean music, Irish tenors, etc. (A good countertenor can melt my knees.) .Would walk as preferred and sole mode of transport, if that were realistic. Cherish my 22 yo away in college - and my 26yo, off and spread her wings. Enjoy travel - but would love an adventuresome travel companion. Fished and portaged in Canada when growing up . Still like fishing, wilderness, hands-in-the-dirt gardening. Also love to dress up in killer heels and a great dress . (Generally not in the wilderness -though I have, once, in the garden [dire emergency]. Ruined the dress saved the plant.) In a guy, love a quirky sense of humor, am inspired by a sharp mind and quick wit. Want to be with a man who is passionate towards me. Who appreciates both female softness and womanly strength and instincts. Who can think and discuss and is capable of balanced disagreements. Who can be my strength and my pillow and my sweet/wild lover - all at once. Seek a man of humor and intelligence and ethics. Looking ultimately for the long-term. Increasingly appreciate consistency. Will reciprocate all of the above.
