The one thing I am passionate about...
I like most types of music (live, local, vocal, instrumental). I also enjoy movies, theater, eating out and relaxing over good food and conversation. I watch college sports (and pro golfers). I'm curious about the world around me, so I look for new places, interesting activities, and restaurants to explore on and off the beaten path. These often include museums, history, culture and nature/sciences. I gravitate towards water, scenic drives, road trips and sight-seeing.
I typically spend my leisure time
Doing fun / new things with friends, and family of all ages. Focus on healthy lifestyle (walk, exercise, eat better.....yet still like to cook, bake and experiment). Play cards, board games. Sing and play piano (for my own amusement). Reading. Follow various sports, home/food shows. Farmer's markets, festivals, performing arts, re-enactments, visit gardens and historic places. Home projects like gardening, decorating, etc.

A little more about me
I'm compassionate and down to earth. I'm glad to have a pleasant life involving friends, family, and neighbors. Little things like sunshine, a good sense of humor, flowers and good people brighten my day. While I have much to be thankful for, I still miss having that special person to share life with that makes it all sweeter and more fulfilling.
