Adventurous, caring, happy, energetic woman seeks similar qualities in a partner. Sense of humor a must. I am looking for someone who values freedom, friendship and family and can be spontaneous as well as responsible.
I have recently moved to the Big Island, but my love affair with Hawaii goes back many years to when I attended U.H. Manoa as a grad student, and subsequently taught there, at Leeward C.C. and at Punahou. Activities I really enjoy are biking,swimming,snorkeling, hiking, yoga, dancing, traveling, reading, gardening, good conversation, weekend meandering, sleeping in on Sunday morning, strong black coffee, good red wine, and outdoor markets.
I love to laugh and have been mistaken for the comedian's mother in more than one comedy club..:-). I value honesty and generosity of spirit more than anything. Honest communication is very important to me, as is a genuine good heart. I strive to make gratitude and serenity a daily goal, even though I fail more often than not. I love beauty in every form: natural and man made. Creativity and imagination fill me with awe. Hula fills me with awe. The ocean and everything in it fills me with awe. My children fill me with awe...(I find the state of awe and wonder extremely pleasant and hope you do, too)
Politically liberal and, while I will respectfully listen to a conservative's perspective, I probably wouldn't date one. There you have it.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd like to spend time talking, discovering the reason for the twinkle in your eye.
