I truly do believe that all life is sacred and that we each have an obligation to share in the joy & suffering of others.
I do not believe I could ever be completely happy as long as there is so much injustice and suffering in the world.
I feel compelled to spend a portion of my time, money and energy to support causes that will make this planet a better place for all.
I believe that when caring people form a common bond to improve the planet and all life on it, we can make a difference, and that by generating love energy in every way possible we can influence the consciousness of our universe.
I'm an aging hippie, drawn to Native American spirituality, wisdom & culture. I myself have NEVER smoked, but I have lung damage, so can NOT be around smokers. I'm a liberal political activist,support literacy programs, humanitarian issues, environmental concerns, animal rights, and all
Veterans, especially VietNam Veterans.
I'm romantic,unpretentious,easygoing, imaginative,like the simple things in life. I have VARIED interests,
am somewhat of a rebel, and have an offbeat Monty-Python type sense
of humor, & love to laugh! My favorite hobbies include humor and comedy, reading, history,geography, & genealogy. I am very passionate about social justice for ALL people.
I have one daughter and one grandson in North Carolina that I don't get to see as often as I'd like.
In January, 2008, I retired from full-time work, but write as a hobby, I'm a journalist at heart. I'm a serious reader and prefer to spend my time with others who appreciate reading and discussing ideas.
Who I'd like to meet:
I like my own company but at times miss having a companion and would like a long-term relationship. I'd like to meet a man who's intelligent, well-groomed, has a good sense of humor, is honest, kind & compassionate, romantic, open-minded,sentimental,generous, at times daring, playful and mischievous, and/or somewhat incorrigible. I like to take things slowly at first and prefer the man make the first move. I'm MOST comfortable with artistic, creative types such as musicians, artists, and writers.
I'm NOT seeking a Chippendale type. A man's height, weight, body type, ethnic background, hair, color of eyes, income and/or occupation, Do NOT MATTER MUCH TO ME, I am more interested in character, attitude, and spirit.
I prefer my companion be spiritual, but not religious, a social drinker, who either has no children,or children are grown, and he does not want more children now.
Any potential mate MUST be a NON-smoker, should be a reader & share my humanitarian and environmental concerns. I'm not a gold digger, control freak, or airhead! IF I CAN FIND A PARTNER I CAN TRUST, HE WILL HAVE MY UNDYING AFFECTION AND LOYALTY FOR LL TIME AND WILL BE QUITE PAMPERED AND WELL-LOVED!
You could call me an Aging Hippie. I believe in freedom, peace, love for all people worldwide. I also believe that all life in our universe is connected. I'm not interested in wasting a lot of my time on casual and meaningless chatter. I AM A NON-SMOKER, can't be around smokers!
