. For me, life is about making a difference, whether it's expressing kindness to another, making music, baking bread, sharing a story, creating memories. And the flip side is appreciating the gifts of others and the wonders of nature, whether aspectacular waterfall or a spider web in the morning light. Family is very important to me. I am empathetic to the joys and sorrows of others. My children are a continuing source of wonder and joy in my life. I loved being involved with my community here in activities such as planting trees, playing sports, making music, potluck dinners, working for peace or the environment, decorating my home for the various holidays. . . I belong to a small church in the town where I have been serving as music director. I work in the area of science, coming up with new experiments in our lab. I love outdoor activities, musical events, looking at art, being involved, jumping in the water. I keep up with the news, WPost, NPR. I would like to meet someone who is a spiritual Christian, who sees the wonder in the creation we live in, who is active in trying to make the world a better place somehow, who enjoys music, silliness, nature, and values her family. I would like to meet someone who can bounce ideas back and be creative. Someone who is affectionate and kind and who friends trust.
