More about me

The one thing I am passionate about...

I'm passionate about teaching and volunteering. I love road trips and the visual arts. Fitness classes and yoga energize me, as do conversation & coffee.

I typically spend my leisure time

Exercising, reading, doing online word games, going to movies and walking are things I do in my leisure time. Since semi-retiring, I've ushered at two Seattle theatres - a great way to see a play a month. I've got a "crafty" side - making bookmarks and notecards for gifts and to sell. Last winter I did some cross-country skiing after a long hiatus and would like to pursue that. I enjoy traveling - most recently in the Southwest, Southern California and Chesapeake Bay. I love visiting the San Juan Islands. Planning a trip to Europe in 2018 for my 70th!

The most influential person in my life has been

I am seeking a comfortable relationship with someone who appreciates new experiences and life's simple pleasures. Someone who is committed to staying healthy and active in body and mind. I value opportunities for continued learning and personal growth. So... stimulating conversation, spontaneity, and open-mindedness are important. Someone who is honest, and grounded, with a sense of humor, who likes togetherness but likes solo time/space, too, is right for me.

The first thing people notice about me

I'm not sure ... but I would say my warm smile.

The last book I read and enjoyed

Now reading Before the Fall - a thriller - for a new book group. This summer I read a memoir, Lab Girl, about a geobiologist's love affair with trees. Also, a novel about three sisters facing their mother's death and a Tana French mystery. Just started What Happened by Hillary Clinton.

The three things which I am most thankful for

  1. My lifelong women friends.
  2. My daughter.
  3. My health

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me

I have a serious side but can be light-hearted and even funny.

Friends Describe me as

Caring, Creative, Generous, Thoughtful

A little more about me

For nearly nine years (in my 30s) I lived in Kinshasa, Zaire, now The Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was an amazing time for me: traveling to several African countries, speaking French daily, learning to love spicy food, teaching English to children from many different countries, navigating rugged roads with a Land rover, and the Congo River with a small motor boat. After returning to the States, I lived in the Southeast and in Los Angeles before settling in Seattle. I've taught English as a Second Language for many years and am now retired and happily tutoring part-time.
