A little about me...
I am passionate about birding, hiking, traveling. I enjoy discovering new places to explore, particularly when I can study a new region and read about it.
On a sunny day, you might find me meandering the woods listening for birds and enjoying the hike.
I consult for education and enjoy that process and the exchanges with college faculty and staff. My part-time consulting requires lots of writing, reading and interviewing.
Finally, my family --mom, siblings, their spouses, my nieces and nephews and grand neices and nephew are all important to me. I am blessed to have most of them living nearby. .
About the one I'm looking for...
Independent and knows who he is. Good listener who wants to ask questions about me and my interests as I will do for him. Outdoors person--not extreme but would hike or canoe, Healthy. Liberal in politics.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
Being in nature feeds my soul. Favorite places include the Black Hills, North Shore of Lake Superior and states west--CO, NM, AZ, WY, and MT. I love to hike, bird and just take in the beauty.
Family and Friends
Family is the center of my life. My two brothers, their wives, kids, and my great grand nieces and nephews give me lots of love, enjoyment, and good times. We celebrate most occasions together and are blessed to live within driving distance.
I can't imagine not learning something new all the time--be that from books, the news, travel, or just listening to someone else's ideas. Now in semi-retirement, I hope to travel and explore.
