In A Nutshell
My spiritual practice is my life. I’m cradle Greek Orthodox, my ancestors Orthodox all the way back to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles. My work as a college teacher and writer energizes me and keeps me busy. I love to sing in my Church choir and dance with friends. I’m tender-hearted, enthusiastic, sensitive, creative, enjoy laughter, love Faith and Science.
I view 60 as midlife because the Eastern sages say we human beings can live until 120, while scientists say 115. We do the best we can, God willing and health permitting, to enjoy our moments on earth. At 61, I hope to teach for 9 more years. But a writer needs to write, and I’ll keep writing as long as I’m able.
I have graduate training in science and English.
The One I Am Looking For
Although I’m a career girl, I’m old-fashioned. I appreciate a kind, masculine man with integrity who’s courteous and treats all women with respect. I don’t do girlfriend. I want to have good friends. Maybe one of these friends will become my husband and best friend. For my husband, I need a kind, caring, open-minded Eastern Orthodox Christian man with integrity who is a good provider, protector, and spiritual leader in the Sacrament of Marriage with God in the Center. Not too many Orthodox men in the Ozarks. Fortunately, I feel quite content with my single life. I enjoy making new friends. If you’re interested in conversation, laughter, and friendship, I’d feel intrigued to hear from you.
I'd Just Like to Add
I love spending time with people of different beliefs and diverse interests.
I’m a both/and thinker; after years of teaching college students how to write reasonable arguments, I often see many sides of an issue. Multicultural me—Greek was my first language, know some French, Spanish, a little German, and a wee bit of Italian. Love to travel. Enjoyed adventures in Europe and China. Hope to travel more in the not-too-distant future. Love to Greek dance, am a retired, amateur Middle Eastern folk dancer, love to sing folk music from different cultures. Love life!
