Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
so after a year and a half of being offline and in a monogamous
gig, i am back here seeing who shows up. i haven't taken the time
to update either pics or profile yet, but i will in the coming
days. in the meantime, most of what you read below is still
i'm a thinker with heart and soul, a recovering cynic who secretly
believes in happy endings; i've rescued lots of feral cats, make a
mean chocolate mousse, floss, and wear heels or chacos equally
well. my sense of humor and silly laugh take the edge off my high
intensity. i think every footstep ought to be a prayer. i'm
self-sufficient but live for connection with others. i haven't
shared residence with a TV for more than half my life now. i'm a
sensualist and how you smell and taste to me is much more critical
than how you look--and, it isn't something you can control or
alter; all those pheromonal chemicals rule me, sometimes to my
detriment. i'm inquisitive and will ask you hard questions that
make you wonder; i hope your answers will make me wonder wider and
deeper. i am absolutely certain i have been both a cat and a
mermaid in previous incarnations, and these days, i'm pretty much
feeling like a sufi--dancing with the divine and drunk on my love
of god or source or the universe or whatever you want to name that
great mystery. my word is golden though sometimes on the tactless
side of blunt. i'm reasonably well traveled but always hunger for
more! i think i've got abundance pretty well figured out these
days, but am seeking my next calling--i want to be in service in a
way that feels truly meaningful. i love this planet and how i feed
myself is a reflection of that. i have minimal tolerance for
dishonesty, injustice, and bigotry. i have mighty warrior
tendencies when it comes to my convictions, i am loyal and fierce
in my love. i will forgive anyone almost anything, though i don't
easily (or ever?) forget. i need to learn patience, i know
perseverance, i believe in possibility. i can be impulsive and am
tickled to find that i still surprise myself. . . often.
you might find me attractive or refreshing or intelligent or
interesting or inspiring or maybe even all of the above. i will
gently nudge you towards self-actualization as i try to get there
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
my oh my, how things change!
last year at this time i was independently wealthy (enough), wasn't
working by choice and design, and was dreaming of my next
international escape. fast forward to now and i am looking to
return to nursing after a break of almost 4 years and trying to
figure out if it's worth my time to join a class-action suit
against my investor who has either lost or stolen my awesome nest
egg of bounty and freedom. boom!
a lot has happened and my life is neither as easy or graceful as it
has been or as i'd prefer it to be; hence, i am cultivating
mindfulness, recommitting to a meditation practice, working on
remaining grateful when things don't look and feel like i'd like
i guess that right now, what i am doing is starting from scratch;
asking myself some really hard questions about what i want next and
how to get myself to that point.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
fumbling my trial-and-error way through first-time projects on my
home, and other things with tools that aren't exactly right for the
wandering into great adventures whilst traveling in foreign
countries with a very manageable amount of stuff on my back.
picking good bets for growing my money. . . next business venture
in progress!!! woo-hoo! this one is gonna be another winner; i can
feel it! (scratch that one. . . my investor is currently being
investigated by the FBI; i couldn't get my money out for the
intended business venture because he stole it and bought
race-horses and ponzi-schemed me and a few hundred other
making delicious food and beverages--especially of a raw or healthy
or fermented/probiotic variety, and most other tasks of a domestic
making friends with animals--pretty much any kind, anywhere
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
people often comment on my eyes or eyebrows, i have a pretty silly
laugh, i communicate with that kind of east-coast directness that
often takes northwest natives aback, i smile easily. my sneezes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
cookies (especially with chocolate chips and nuts please), kitties,
my passport, the sun (!!!!!!), my beloved best friend and grammy
(they are one in the same), gratitude.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
improvements on my house and yard.
where i am going to spend this coming winter.
ways to support a permanent bi-continental existence--typically
business ideas that involve india.
why the men i really connect with lately don't have that pheromonal
YES! that i need to make it work, and why the ones that do, just
don't rock my brain or heart or soul the way that i need to make it
work (deep expressive sigh here).
how lucky i am in the life that i landed this go-round.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
since my most recent return from an extended sojourn, i have
witnessed myself as being a bit more introverted than usual. friday
nights i might be with a friend or two enjoying good food, or at
seward park courting the juvenile barred owls, or (dare i admit
this?) reading in the bath or journaling or some other quiet and
relaxing activity. for me, any day is friday and any day is likely
a work day on projects of a hard and heavy nature in my house and
yard right now.
but sundays? sunday are for dancin'!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i have weird obsessions with numbers and counting and have bizarre
ways in which i strongly favor certain numbers; it's pretty dorky
but doesn't seem to cause much harm.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
. . . you operate with: integrity, imagination, and a healthy
balance of self-knowledge, self-love and a commitment to
. . . you have: a generosity of heart, right responsibility with
left thinking, the ability and willingness to share aspects of your
self that shine as well as the darker, more secret stuff; an
appreciation of kissing and touch, interest in spiritual pursuits,
some kind of skill or knowledge you are proud of and want to share
. . . you choose: an eco-groovy lifestyle and habits (i heart
vegetarians/vegaquarians!), startling honesty, an attitude of
curiosity towards life no matter what is showing up, and personal
responsibility for the life you are creating.
. . . you are: a willing travel companion who dreams, wonders and
then acts to manifest!
addendum: tattoos, fix-it skills, experience with rope work, as
well as access to boats, motorcycles or ponies all earn extra
points in the sexy column.
anther addendum: lots of you have kids, and unless they are all
grown up and out on their own, i am not terribly interested; see, i
want the full-meal deal, i want someone who wants to and CAN come
traipsing around the world with me. . . for months at a time!! and
if you have kids, you can't give me what i will be asking you for.
but if you are smitten and decide that you want to just run off
with me, i'll think you're a rotten papa, and i won't respect
you--so there's just no way to win on this one. sorry.
