Am retired educator/administrator who remains active and "youthful." I tutor, adjunct, teach swimming, and write. In last 10 years I traveled to Vietnam and Europe, crewed on a yacht in the Caribbean, participated in a sustainability research expedition in Costa Rica, and increasingly try to escape Jersey winters in Florida. In past I've lived for a year or 2 each in the Southwest US, and in Senegal, West Africa . This photo of me with Buddy Guy was taken at his blues club in Chicago about 8 years ago (before I was able to lose the glasses). I love outdoors, play tennis, sail, snorkel and scuba,.. but I like cooking and gardening too, along with music, film, art, theater. I speak several languages, and am chatty but mind my own business as well. I respect people's privacy. I am clean and courteous, and have a good sense of humor.. My only critical need when traveling is ability to make my coffee in morning .
