As I have gotten older, the lessons of life have made me a strong individual. Hopefully my zest for life will be shared by the people around me. Have a wide range of interests including gardening, growing most of the food I eat, anything to do with being outside with a respect of natural. Do a number of crafts from sewing, recycleing denim and making quilts, to jewelry making and paper crafts. Usually teach myself what I want to know. Right now I am teaching myself to play the harmonica. Have a very healthy attitude towards diet and keeping active. Just recently discovered quineo and kale. With the help of my partner, hiking and cycling has become a staple in our daily life along with walking and swimming. We both feel good.
