I'm outgoing, independent, passionate and laid back. I love to laugh and make others laugh. My figure is nothing to write home about but I'm comfortable in my own skin and self-confident. I tend to be a listener, but love to talk! I'm compassionate, affectionate, "touchy-feely", down to earth, like the pretty things in the world, love bright colors and soft textures, have dabbled in painting, writing, crafts, playing piano, ballroom dancing. I own my own home, support myself, and try to help others as much as I can. I've traveled and lived in England, Wales, Italy, Iraq, Massachusetts, California, and gone cross country and into Canada a number of times. I speak casual Italian. My friends and family consider me to be a bit eccentric, rather brave, easy going, and one-of-a-kind. I'm very spiritual and my life is about "walking the talk" I teach and write about my beliefs, which are generally New Age. I've lived alone for many years and am very happy with my life, but would love to have a life companion/best friend/lover to enhance it.
