A little about me...
Most important to me is an interesting life together with other people, plus absorbing work, and that sums up the way I spend my time.
I moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Georgetown, Kentucky in 2005. Professionally, I've been a writer and editor for many types of publications. In Kentucky, I've found very little paid work in this, but try to keep my hand in through volunteer work. On a paid basis I've worked at several places here, including Keeneland and Waveland State Historic Site in Lexington.
In a volunteer way, I help out at historic sites with public information, tours, presentations and events. With a passion for fashion history, I've been collecting antique clothing and accessories for some 20 years, and especially like to help out with costumed events for public education. Old houses grab me, too, and I own one.
I'm always doing something in the arts, including music (I'm a soprano with one choir and the Bluegrass Opera). I'm not an artist, but I'm on the board of the Scott County Arts Consortium (which runs a gallery and school), and like to explore other galleries. I dance a lot in a recreational way: English country dancing, contra and international folk dancing, and vintage (historical) non-competition
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm looking for a man around my age (a few years plus or minus won't matter) who doesn't necessarily share the same interests but spends time roughly the way I do. Maybe he plays tennis, grows vegetables, runs, likes fixing things, designs websites, flies model planes or talks with family and friends. All that and much more comes under the heading above.
He has basically constructive, progressive values and wants to help make things better for people.
I'd just like to add...
Great partners pursue passions like those above together; they don't even have to date. They maintain and improve homes, collect favorite objects, watch really good TV and movies together, play with pets, work on service projects. The basic thing is to be largely agreed on what's worth doing.
I was widowed in 2007, and think marriage is the life that makes sense for somebody like me, but other forms of companionship can also keep life rewarding.
