Hi there. Here are two of my favorite quotes:
"Do one thing every day that scares you." Eleanor Roosevelt, and
"Don’t let those who take advantage of your generosity stop you from being generous." ~Author Unknown ~
I live my life with honesty, integrity, passion... and appreciate the same in those close to me. I cherish my family and friends. If you come to know them, you'll understand why. Retired, my life is equally balanced between responsibilities (I have few) and enjoying life/friends/family. I’m intelligent, wake up happy every day and end each day the same. I’m emotionally open, don’t expect anything to change that, and I'm looking for electricity on emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual levels. I won't settle for less... but then neither will you.
Healthy, active, blessed to be financially secure, expressive, involved, caring, and have been called sweet my entire life. I'm a sensual, sincere, serious and playful one-man woman who hasn't lost her edge.
I enjoy day trips, weekend getaways, longer trips on occasion, anything around water, almost all music, singing, dancing (although I'm definitely out of practice), good movies, interesting architecture, gourmet food, good wine, political discourse (I'm conservative, by the way), keeping a nice home, entertaining friends and family, being of help to others. I'm a passionate partner, parent, grandparent, gardener and reader, a pretty good cook if I do say so myself, but miss the joy of sharing the kitchen, a glass of wine, and bits and pieces of our day.
I’d like to meet a decent fella who’s a match in terms of honesty, integrity, humor, values and mutual respect. Someone who likes to go and do, knows how to relax, and that actions speak louder than words. Bottom line: Friends first, I'm looking for someone with whom sparks fly.
