A little about me...
My purpose in life is to get through it positively, creatively, generously, healthily, and with little or no fuss. I am somewhat solitary by choice but really enjoy having a few good friends to share time and adventures. I am a skier, artist, good cook and loyal friend. Politics and religions -- keep at a distance. I have my own strong beliefs but appreciate others' beliefs if not too weird. (and some weird ones are interesting too) I spend a lot of time outdoors, and love the mountains best. My family is the most important aspect of my life, and we are close, if not in distance always, but in relationship.
I have successfully avoided living in large cities, though I enjoy an occasional visit. I live in a rustic area, and my neighborhood is perfect for me. My home is filled with family treasures that are treasures only to me, because of their origin. My pets are my best companions, but lately I have been considering adding more friends of the human species, because our current conversations are so one sided.
About the one I'm looking for...
He will be in good health, fit in body and spirit, humorous, like the outdoors, be open minded and generous in sharing time to help others, able to appreciate other folks' individuality and have a strong ethical standard. Does not mind shoveling snow, carrying firewood, likes good food, does not smoke, or use other drugs at all. Has a few faults, which show his humanity. Is forgiving of mine as I would be too.
I'd just like to add...
Other interests are: reading, writing, golf, fly fishing, photography, and painting landscapes. i enjoy just being at home in my leisure time. My children and grandchildren are essential in my life. I spontaneously travel to see them at times, and like nothing better to have them stay with me. I welcome new people who are authentic in their friendship.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I believe that our environment is at risk, and feeling such a kinship and love for nature, it is important to preserve its beauty and integrity for our grandchildren and theirs as well.
Crafts and Creating
If I could really succeed in anything I would love to be a painter or artist who inspires others. I paint, and my family and friends continually encourage my art. I am basically lazy, however.
I am fit because the alternative is too stupid to consider. My interests always bring me out to play and enjoy the outdoors, although I am not avid in my exercise, I try to maintain a healthy ability to hike, ski, and do other sports.
