A little about me...
I was very focused during my 30 year IBM career. Today I love having days with little planned - often doing something on the spur of the moment. I want to have and maybe share many new experiences. I now like to cook with and without a recipe, but I also like well planned international travel and learning. Since my husband passed 3 years ago I do miss good male conversation. I want to give laughter, caring and sharing.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for someone to share good times with. I am definitely looking for someone who like me has a positive active approach to life and values the people in their life. And, I do love lively, interesting conversation -- please only connect if you do too. My politics are somewhat progressive and I am hoping to share some thoughts with someone of the same perspective. I'd love to share long walks or long meals with good company.
I'd just like to add...
I was born in Scotland and lived in England until I was 15. My family emigrated to the culture shock of California in 1959. In 1966 I graduated with an engineering degree and then worked for IBM my whole career including 3 years in Paris. I am a US and UK citizen, and I feel a little like a citizen of the world. I think my background means I am open to new experiences and hopefully new ideas.
