People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
Helen Keller

I have a wide variety of interests and enjoy meeting people from all walks of life.

For a good relationship, I believe it is important to be able to openly discuss any issues and although complete agreement may not always be possible, a mutual understanding can be reached with honesty and respect. Having met someone I am interested in, I am here to make more friends.

I am generally optimistic, preferring to think of the glass as half full. It is not so much what happens to us in life as how we handle those situations. Tending not to be materialistic, but enjoying the simple pleasures in life. My work as a Data analyst, is both challenging and rewarding. I believe that learning should be a life-long experience. Staying fit and healthy, emotionally and physically is important to me.

Originally from England, where my family still reside, I decided to make the USA my home after losing my husband several years ago. I did not have children, but have enjoyed the company of my friends children over the years. They are a great source of fun as well as insight and joy.

My tastes are eclectic: I am a morning person, who enjoys the sights and sounds of nature. I enjoy cooking, gardening, travel - exploring out of the way places, art, music, movies (drama, comedies and science fiction), classical literature, corny humor, history, museums, car racing, antique car shows, wineries, walking, hiking, but most of all having fun no matter what or where. I do not follow sports, but enjoy watching on occasion.

I enjoy spending time with friends, or meeting strangers who are not friends yet. Enjoy good conversations, and often I prefer to listen rather than talk, but that is because I like to think a lot before expressing an opinion.

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" - Churchill, 1874-1965

DU, DU LIEGST MIR IM HERZEN (Original German Lyrics)

Du, du liegst mir im Herzen.
Du, du liegst mir im Sinn.
Du, du machst mir viel Schmerzen.
Weisst nicht wie gut ich dir bin.
Ja, ja, ja, ja,
Weisst nicht wie gut ich dir bin.

So, so, wie ich dich liebe,
So, so liebe auch mich.
Die, die zärtlichsten Triebe
Fühl ich allein nur für dich.
Ja, ja, ja, ja,
Fühl ich allein nur für dich.

Doch, doch, darf ich dir trauen,
Dir, dir mit leichtem Sinn?
Du, du kannst auf mich bauen.
Weisst ja wie gut ich dir bin.
Ja, ja, ja, ja,
Weisst ja wie gut ich dir bin.

Und, und wenn in der Ferne
Mir, mir dein Bild erscheint,
Dann, dann wünscht ich so gerne
Dass uns die Liebe vereint.
Ja, ja, ja, ja,
Dass uns die Liebe vereint.

DU, DU LIEGST MIR IM HERZEN (Literal English Translation)

You, you weigh on my heart.
You, you weigh on my mind.
You, you cause me much sorrow.
You don’t know how good I am to you.
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
You don’t know how good I am to you.

Just, just as I love you,
So, so love me too.
The, the tenderest feelings
Do I feel now for you alone.
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
Do I feel now for you alone.

Still, still, should I trust you,
You, you so fickle in mind?
You, you can rely on me.
You do know how good I am to you.
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
You do know how good I am to you.

When, when I am far away,
To me, me your picture appears.
Then, then fondly I wish
That love unite us.
Yes, yes, yes, yes,
That love unite us.

************************

Let me be the bandage for your bleeding;
Let me be the ocean for your tears.
Let me be the secret of your healing;
Let me be the song to still your fears.

Love isn't love that cannot love in darkness,
Nor is it love that turns away from pain;
Nor would I love would I not hold your sadness
And with my love your love of life sustain.

So do not think your malady a burden,
And do not think my willingness deceit.
Just let your sorrow flow into my garden,
And I will share with you the harvest sweet.

************************

A Celtic Prayer

Deep peace of the running waves to you.

Deep peace of the
Flowing air to you.

Deep peace of the
Quiet earth to you.

Deep peace of the
shining stars to you.

Deep peace of the
Son of Peace to you.



Life is Short,

They say it takes a minute
to find a special person,
an hour to appreciate them
a day to love them
but then an entire life
to forget them

***************************************

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree —
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green
(Emily Jane Bronte 1818-1848)

*******************************************

Lord, Make me a channel of your Peace:

Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury... Pardon
Where there is discord... Unity
Where there is doubt... Faith
Where there is error... Truth
Where there is despair... Hope
Where there is sadness... Joy
Where there is darkness... Light

Oh Master, grant that I may not so much seek:
To be consoled... as to console
To be understood... as to understand
To be loved... as to love

For:
It is in giving... that we receive.
It is in pardoning... that we are pardoned.
It is in dying... that we are born to Eternal Life
(St. Francis).

It's a joy in life to make new friends, so if you would like to correspond, drop me a line.
