I'm a warm, down to earth person, often serious, (but don't take myself too seriously), love to laugh, and have a strong playful side. My friends tell me I'm a great listener. I have an easy going personality and can be a bit of an imp, given the right circumstances (think hot summer day...supersoaker...).
I love to be in nature.
I like writing (I'm published), jewelry making, mosaic making, and feathering my nest. I love doing projects around the home, and would participate enthusiastically in yours, given the opportunity (no heavy lifting, please).
Animals are near and dear to my heart. My companion of 17 years is my personable, once feral cat, who I rescued along with her sibs. Although I don't have a dog now, I love all dogs (so long as they're friendly).
Communication is important to me--to express my thoughts and feelings clearly, reasonably, and openly.
I have a health challenge, fibromyalgia, and am working toward healing. This has meant slowing down, taking hikes that are more moderate than I'd prefer (ie 3-4 miles instead of 7), traveling closer to home, and spending time doing activities that require less energy. I love simple pleasures like cooking a meal together, cuddling up to watch a movie, or playing a few games of Scrabble.
I'm looking for a kind and gentle man, to get to know, and ultimately develop a partnership that's heartfelt, affectionate, and fun.
