I have always led my life, not simply followed it. I am an active, fit, intelligent person and fully engaged with this wonder filled world. I travel, I make art as a professional - art that is both beautiful and responsive to my concern for the environment. Kids and animals immediately respond to me. They see who I am. If you are mindful and live in the present, you will see me too. Many people tell me I have the energy, if not the appearance (:0) of someone 15 years my junior.
I am looking for a vibrant, warm, fit, loving partner, someone to share their enthusiasm at being alive, not a mirror, but someone engaged with life on their own terms.
What I’m doing with my life
I paint, I've been working on environmental projects. Films, reading and
hiking have also been fun. I enjoy meeting with
friends but I would like to find that one special lady with whom to share experiences, feelings and romance.
I’m really good at
I know birds and trees and mushrooms and geology. I know the best local (less visited) nature spots. I know film. I lenjoy laughing. I seem to be able to bring the best out in other people. I don't condescend.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my smile, my laugh. I listen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by RH Blythe: The History of Haiku, Stephen Greenblatt; The Swerve, Erik Larson: Devil in the White City, The Beasts in the Garden. Mysteries! Spotlight (!), Spectre, Masterpiece Theater, The Affair, Homeland, Erik Satie, Mozart, John Adams, Rita Coolidge, The Stones.
The six things I could never do without
My friends, my art books, my garden, my SUV, my iphone, my sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The environment, feeling, travel. How to finish this painting!
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night! No typical day. Keep it fresh.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry hearing certain music, seeing Rembrandt self portraits,
reading great literature...in response to beauty.
You should message me if
You are present and laugh.
