Although I lived in the south for many years I am still a true northern girl at heart. I am very focused at work so I am looking for somebody that can slow me down, bring fun, laughter into my life and maybe teach me some new things I haven't tried like to golf, or fish. I love being spontaneous and find it hard to find somebody that keep me interested intellectually. I like simple things like going for walks on the beach, hiking, conversation over a cup of coffee. I love all kinds of sports but especially baseball - would love to find somebody that wants to go to watch a ballgame in all of the major league parks."After a While""After a while you learn the subtle differencebetween holding a hand and chaining a soul.And you learn that love doesn't mean leaningand company isn't security.(Kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises.)After awhile you begin to accept your defeatswith your head up and your eyes open,with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.And you learn to build your roads on todaybecause tomorrow's ground is too uncertain and the inevitable has a way of crumbling in mid-flight.After a while you learn that even sunshine burnsif you stand too long in one place.So, you plant your own garden and decorate your own soulinstead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers.And you learn you really can endure, that you really do have worth.You learn that with every good-bye comes the dawn."
