Introduction

I am a confident professional, great conversationalist, and am told my sense of humor is unparalleled (laughing most at myself!). I have an unquiet, inquisitive mind that constantly seeks answers to various questions to life's dilemmas, always coming up with novel ways of thinking. I am loyal and honest to a fault, very expressive, sensual and a total incurable romantic. I am extremely passionate, affectionate, transparent, open in communicating feelings, affirming and love to please. I am not lonely, but I find that experiences such as travel, eating out, movies, service to others and simple pleasures like a walk on the beach are much richer when they can be shared.

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Interesting conversation over long dinner. Once acquainted, kayaking on still waters of Puget Sound at sunset.

My past relationships have taught me...

Live the moment. Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's almost all small stuff. Given up on changing others. When there are problems, try to take the view that I'm more to blame and learn to be wrong. Lean to apologize. Learn gratitude and affirmation.

To me, being an Adventist means...

I'm more an SDA by upbringing and am far more committed to Jesus Christ and His teaching than the SDA church beliefs, and I don't equate the two. I'm am rather liberal in theological beliefs, through conservative in lifestyle.

In five years, I see myself

Continue attempting to learn increasing giving to others, and come to a greater sense of acceptance and contentment. Continue to exhibit that value of faith to kids and grandkids.

My favorite Bible passage is...

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Happiness and contentment are rather illusory, often more a state of mind. We are too often caught up with the notion...if only....as though certain changes in circumstances will bring happiness and contentment. It is usually lie. As Socrates says: He who is not contented with what he has will not be contented with getting what he wants.

One final thing I'd like to mention...

Losing my soul mate of 30 year has given far more questions than answers. I have learned to be increasingly grateful for what I had. I lucked out once, and tend to think the notion of lightening striking again, though possible, is not likely.
