A little about me...
Outgoing, easy to get along with, fun-loving and when need be, serious and intuitive. Basically, am thoughtful, caring and loving with good values, honesty and integrity with an independent streak. Good listener and effective communicator. Love surrounding myself with witty, fun-loving people who know how to enjoy life and maintain a positive attitude. I don't expect others to make me happy because I'm already happy and content, with much love and goodness to share. There's longevity in my family, so at 71, I'm really just a kid!
About the one I'm looking for...
... a thoughtful, giving, upbeat, fun and respectful gentleman. One who finds humor in every day life. Someone who is open-minded and enjoys learning new things. Someone who takes time to smell the flowers, enjoys serenity and peaceful surroundings vs. living a fast and hectic lifestyle addicted to a cell phone. Looking forward to spending time together so we can discover the beauty in art, people, places, and each other. It would be fun to share life experiences, as well as each other's company.
I'd just like to add...
Would love to have a "friend" right now to start with and to go out for coffee, dinner, or a movie. Fine dining is romantic and beautiful. Serene and peaceful surroundings appeal to me. Love to laugh a lot to maintain my excellent health! Love B&B's, people-watching, thrift shops, reading, cooking healthy, and baking my famous desserts. I'm a life-time learner, read inspirational and self-improvement books, plus study listening skills, and psychology. Love fragrant flowers ... lilacs, peonies, and roses. Energetic in an easy-going way. Keep busy, yet my life is not hectic. Love people, but enjoy lots of quiet time as well to help maintain a sense of peace.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I like to make collages of all my favorite things. I used to sew and make my own clothes as well as my daughter's, but that was year's ago. I oversee an art class once a week so I'm always learning to be more creative. The work I do with children allows me to "play" a lot so I love to paint , draw, and make jewelry with the children. Yes! I get paid to play. :-)
I love beauty ... in people, things, nature, children, and the arts.
I admire people who are true artists. I am still learning how to draw "stick" people. However, I'm a pretty good photographer and would like to study and be better.
Love music. My daughter is a professional singer so music is a big part of my life. I love most music, except hard rock and jazz. I enjoy watching the VOICE, the X-FACTOR, and AMERICAN IDOL. Also love classical music .
