The one thing I am passionate about...
Truth. Goodness. Love. Harmony. Beauty. Optimism. A living relationship to a higher Being. Live music of many types (both as audience and participant). Singing. Dancing. Live theatre.

I typically spend my leisure time
English country and circle dance, choral singing,attending concerts/gigs, going to live theatre and films, visiting museums/art gallery openings, walking, doing computer research, helping friends, preparing food, organizing and hosting parties, playing cards and board games (Scrabble, anyone?).
The most influential person in my life has been
For me, honesty and trust go hand in hand; being reliable, loyal and faithful are key to developing the basis for a partnership. We seek to balance alone time with couple time; at our age we have lots of lifelong friends and interests to keep up with. But, given time, we really enjoy being open, affectionate, sexual and humorous with each other too.

A little more about me
I'm bi...national, that is (British Irish and American), so I can legally travel, work and live in a wide variety of countries. I walked the Camino pilgrimage (707k) across northern Spain two years ago and discovered how much singing sustains me. I raised my daughter alone, so I'm pretty good at dealing with challenges. I am a spiritual seeker. Making food and entertaining delights me, especially if there are board games and/or cards; I adore holiday gatherings. I teach English as a Foreign Language and have been to much of N America and Europe, even cruised once; I can get by in most Romance languages and some German. I love to learn
