I am fun loving with a practical side. My Interests are rather eclectic and I don't deny being eccentric. I have a fervent desire daily to learn new words in various languages. I participate in social networks via the internet and I'm very much involved in attending venues where my grown children play music. I am somewhat reclusive in that I seldom invite friends to my home. I paint on canvas in the genre of Abstract Expressionism and I take great pride in influencing my grandchildren and great- grandchildren in the realm of The Arts. I was married to a fine man for forty-nine years. My spouse died in 2009 and I was okay with the first three years of solitude. Having said that, I must say that the last two years have been rough psychologically. I have a great family who are attentive to my needs, but intimacy is the missing component. I learned a new word recently which I believe describes me: Sapiosexual. Intelligence truly attracts me foremost and I am now seeking a soulmate.
