I'm an active 72-year-old living in a cohousing community in the great city of Portland, Oregon, USA, where i enjoy biking and hiking and community life, but also like to get away to sunnier climes from time to time. I am a painter and especially enjoy the art museums and cultural events (dance, music) of the places i travel to......and the food! I like people and am easy to get along with, respectful of others' privacy and need my own. I practice yoga and keep fit with a healthy diet and lifestyle. I like what the Buddha taught: You must be the light you wish to see in the world.
