The one thing I am passionate about...
Spending time with family and friends. Being active in activities that bring people together. I have four grown children and they are very important parts of my life. I'm a single, independent gal who is happy with where I am in life. It would be wonderful to find a partner with whom to share life's experiences. Evenings out dancing, walks in the mountains or on the beach, holding hands, sharing laughs and love. I love dancing and the outdoors......I'm not at all a couch potato.
I typically spend my leisure time
Hiking, dancing, reading, sudoku, shape note singing. I love contra dancing and swing dancing, though I focus mostly on contra dancing these days. I love going to the Birchmere, Wolf Trap, and The State Theater. I love Bonnie Raitt, Jonathan Edwards, SGGL, John McCutcheon, Chris Smither, Alison Krauss, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Johnny Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Grace Griffith, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, Lyle Lovett, Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge Boys, Donal Leace, Vonda Shepard, Kate Campbell, Dolly Parton, The Beatles, John Roberts & Tony Barrand, Reba McIntire, Seldom Scene, Gillian Welch, Earl Scruggs, James Taylor, Michael Lille.
