Happy thinker seeking good conversationalist ....
I am well-travelled with wide interests, a positive attitude, and caring, passionate nature.
I enjoy time alone, but get inspired by a good conversation and stimulating, congenial company.

Much of my life has been spent living and working abroad, in New York, France, and Asia; my friends and family are multi-national and quite globally dispersed, many in London which takes me back there quite regularly. I have 2 teenage daughters, one at university and one in 6th form.

I am athletic, and enjoy doing things that involve physical activity, particularly in beautiful places - be it skiing, hiking, watersports, or yoga. I love plants and nature and find they heal the soul, as do music and singing.
I enjoy good food and drink, and appreciate people who can cook. I have a soft spot for anyone who can play a musical instrument, and it's an added extra if they can dance too –these being potential points of connection rather than requirements☺!

I love reading: a lot of non-fiction, but I would like to incorporate more fiction, and the arts in general, going forward.
I have a professional background in finance and investment in which I retain an on-going engagement; I have recently added a growing interest in essential oils and natural health. It feels good to be learning new things.

I am fortunate to have a pretty good life, but am also open to the possibility that finding the right person to share some (or all) of it with could make it even better. In any case, am also always open to friendships that are genuine and both interesting and fun!

I chose 'spiritual'. Religious differences seem largely cultural, to me. The main question being whether or not you acknowledge any kind of spiritual awareness and think it's a plus. I do.
