A little about me...
Please if you take the time to read my profile I just ask that if you are inclined write a few sentences. I will not respond to flirts. Each day I get up and although I'm not a religious person feel gratitude for my health as well as the health and happiness of my children and grandchildren. I value honesty my belief is simple "its far easier to be truthful". Nothing I have done in life is regrettable since even mistakes taught me something. Sometimes of course someone showed me the book but I chose to eat the pages - oh well my decision my consequence. I value organization but not obsessively, I value compassion but not enabling, I look for things that need to be done and just do them, I have the same expectation from others but have the ability to not be disappointed when my expectations are not met. I'm a witty person and find humor not sarcasm to be a good ointment. I am devoted to learning new things and have many interests if I am reading something and there are footnotes I explore further if time permits. In summary if you are interesting you would find me the same, if your life brings you joy we would be a good match if your life brings joy to others we would be a great match.
About the one I'm looking for...
Someone who values learning something new, how does learning a new language sound? This would of course be in addition to having fun. A person who is not self absorbed but has a self interest in growing their character and helping someone else (gently) grow theirs. We all have the capacity to be a better human being, friend, mom, dad, etc. A woman with class, not really that elusive a quality that makes a world of difference to the discerning. I have a really fantastic benefit courtesy of a major airline that lets me travel, if a U.S city with cultural aspects that you have read or heard about but never taken the time to visit sounds spontaneous it would to me too.
I'd just like to add...
A close friend shared this thought, that a good relationship is like making bread, you need to make it fresh each day otherwise it gets stale. I have been divorced for 10 yrs and do well alone but given the chance plays well with others. I attended college but did not graduate with a degree, life got in the way. I served in the military, was operations manager in a federal agency and shared a owner operated business with two others. I was a pretty good golfer, but do not play as much as I used to. I enjoy baseball and football (major Steelers fan) but don't spend hours watching events or ESPN. Want to get together for casual conversation in a casual setting for light hearted introduction,

My Top Interests:
News and Politics
I will freely admit to being a political junky. It does not consume me however, but I firmly believe in making informed decisions and seeking the facts, not the hype. I am left of center politically. The reason I'm passionate about this topic is it's important to me that we are knowledgeable about other cultures and how other in our society make decisions that affect everyone
My taste in music range from rock, reggae, blues, jazz fusion, classical, and modern c and w do not really care if your wife dog and pickup were lost. I draw the medium is pencil and charcoal making the attempt to train myself to be as right brained as possible to view objects (and other people) from new perspectives
Simple foods are fine most of the time and it makes life easier to have a great soup or salad and a crusty loaf of bread but I get ambitious and make something comfortable into a masterpiece like viewing the world either thru ordinary glass or stained glass
