My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just arrived back in Asheville and am taking it easy getting reintegrated into the area. I am really glad to be back home. I love these mountains and it feels really good to return to being surrounded by friends and family.

Just spent the last 8 months or so travelling/living in my gypsy wagon school bus. (spent most of that time in New Orleans)

I tend to be a blend of sweet, laid back, spontaneous, and spiritual with intense, fiery, fiercely opinionated and motivated.

Things that describe me... I'm a nature lover, an herbalist witch, a personal interior art designer, a costume/clothing designer, a Virgo organizer (when it suits me), a sensualist, a spiritualist, a chef, a performer, an aerialist, sometimes a comedian (especially when on stage), a care-taker as well as an independent woman.

While I'm happy to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon tooling around at the house, making yummy food (or herbal elixers or homemade meads), sewing or in my garden... I also do a good bit of traveling...
I like to do yoga, acroyoga and circus stuff and study esoteric arts.
I don't have any kids but I'd like one...

I know who I am, what I want, what I don't want.

That said, I want to be really super clear about what I'm looking for here on okcupid. While I can be a bit flexible... please understand that I am really looking for someone within my own age range and relative social scene.

I'm 37. I don't really want to date someone who's in their early 20's or their 50's. Really somewhere within the 33-45 range.

As for the "social scene" thing... Yes, part of me is professional, but I am also alternative, artistic, circusy and a bit on the freaky side. If you are generally a pretty "normal", mainstream, run-of-the-mill kindof guy, you're probably not what I'm looking for. Although, like I said, that can be a little bit flexible... but come on. Don't write to me if you don't really think that we'd be a reasonable match. I get far too many messages from sweet men who mean well and are very nice... but I think that they already know that they are not the type of guy that I would go for... (it's nothing personal... I just know who's my type)...and yet they message me and then I have to feel like a rude person for not writing them back.... I don't wanna be rude. I just don't have a lot of interest in going out with men who are my father's age or who would have nothing in common with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am embarking on a new phase where I am taking the opportunity to completely reinvent myself. It is changing and taking form every day.

As of a couple years ago, I had it all figured out (and I really did have it good but perhaps I was bored)... so I decided to shake it all up and see where the chips would fall. So here I am, I have landed back in Asheville and am enjoying creating a new life in the same, familiar place.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sharing counsel with my friends. I give great advice and can also offer reflective listening when that's more in order.
Overseeing projects, making plans and bringing things into manifestation...
Also sometimes reading minds....
