The one thing I am passionate about...
Social justice, for the most vulnerable populations, locally as well as globally. politics, I am very liberal, I wish Bill Clinton could run for office again! I plan to campaign for Hillary! I really do not care for religious hypocrits, the people on the far right frighten me. I like the middle road. Rudeness is something I don't tolerate very well, and controlling people. I feel very passionate about life. It should be lived to the fullest! We only go around once. I love to laugh, I want to enjoy life and everything it has to offer. Materially I need less and less all the time, In fact I find myself purging possessions. I want to travel!
I typically spend my leisure time
These days, I am swimming, and walking my dog (Golden Retreiver). I am just discovering how wonderful and invigorating exercise is, I have a bicycle that I need to dust off!

A little more about me
Integrity is very high on my list of values, and honesty. People have a much better chance of being happy if they respect each other. I do not like games, if I meet someone and it isn't a match, the worst that could happen is I would add a friend to my list!
