I am a happy, determined, feisty woman with a soft heart, and a ready smile. I understand social graces, love to laugh, am upbeat, curious, feminine, and physically active. I need a hit of the arts and love to learn new things. My mind is sharp and I am a bundle of energy.I was raised to be responsible, loyal, to do the right thing, to be altruistic, and kind. My dad's mantra was, "Live your life!" and I take that to heart by "being" as much as "doing." Politically, I tilt left, particularly regarding social issues. I have a "live and let live" attitude and avoid judging others. I "accept" rather than "tolerate" ~ two very different ways of considering others. There is no room in my life for bigotry.I am actively Single in the process and would enjoy getting to know someone in the interim. Communication is so easy these days and I visit with frequency.I'm not sure what "winks" mean so if they are more than a flattering acknowledgement and you would like to be in contact, please send me a quick email. Thanks.
