I am 59 years of age, divorced with children sometimes living with me at home. Currently I am working contract in California but my children are in Pennsylvania. I am very marriage minded and seriously looking for a life long friend, lover, wife, and partner. I am 6'' 2" tall and 235lbs.and have blue eyes. I have reddish-blond hair that is full retreat, and a moustache that comes and goes with the seasons. I am in good health, and drink rarely and only socially. I have many interests including reading, music, theater, gardening, hiking, travel, movies, sports, cooking, computers, electronics, poetry and camping. I love children and enjoy the responsibilities of being a parent and a father. I love to teach children and help them grow and mature into responsible young men and women. For what other purpose than to love, nurture, encourage, uplift, and help others are we given life? I love to send flowers, walk on beaches at sunset, dance under the stars, and dream under the full moon. I am very romantic, passionate, sensual, and an excellent conversationalist. I do not shun responsibility, I accept each trial in life as an opportunity to grow, to learn, and to become more than I am today as a man and a person. I am not a prince, I am not a millionaire, I am a Christian man, real, honest, and honorable. I can cook, clean house with the best of them including toilets..lol. I can do my own laundry, iron, sew hems and buttons, make a fire, survive in the wilderness, and grow a mean garden. I love to laugh, sing, and savor each moment of life that God has seen fit to provide to me. I walk each day knowing within my heart that the very next breath is not mine but a great gift given to me in deepest love. I have seen the good times and the bad times, I have had much and nothing. I have felt physical pain and experienced disasters both natural and self-made. I have fallen in despair, wept in deepest grief, and been completely alone from human touch but always by the Grace of God I have been brought to my feet, healed, and lead onward into life's journey. I am not concerned with physical appearance because it is so fleeting with time, illness, stress, or accident. I am concerned with the beauty, character, and weaknesses, and strengths of the soul and spirit. In other words I care little for physical beauty that is transient by nature but with those qualities that are eternal. Yes, I appreciate physical beauty but it is a light bulb when compared to the brilliance of one's soul and spirit.
