- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Last night I fell in love....
Falling in love is crazy; it's very physical; it’s when knees get weak and temperature rises. Love is calm, comfortable and mental.
Last night I fell in love. Well, it was a dream, but it felt so real.
I met someone through friends and there was an instant attraction. We chatted and he came to my place where we joked around laughing until we were both literally rolling on the floor.
I even saw his face. He was pleasant looking with a wicked smile and a teasing glint in his eyes. His thick hair was sort of dirty blonde turning greyish. He was of average build but tall at around 6 feet. He was a doctor. He told me why he decided to make medicine his life’s work, something about having sisters who were physically and mentally challenged.
In the next scenario, we were (separately) at some sort of function, and I saw him talking with other women but he did not come and talk to me. I was very disappointed, but realistically decided that I’d been mistaken about our previous connection.
The final scenario took place when I was helping out family and he arrived unexpectedly. I knew immediately that I was in love with him, but held myself back until he said he had something for me. He took me outside and presented me with a basket of hyacinths and lilacs.
I knew from the look on his face that he was in love with me and I jumped into his arms and held on for dear life. In my dream, I actually felt the warmth of his body and smelled the scent of his neck as we held on tightly to each other. That hug spoke to me of security, trust, and sharing that no words could ever express.
Then the alarm clock went off.
All morning during my drive into town for an appointment, I kept going over this dream. All the way home, I relived it. It was so real.
I’m feeling very lonely right now. I’m yearning for that feeling. Maybe it’s a prediction that I will in fact experience that kind of love in real life soon.
I hope so.
