I am comfortable being by myself but feel it would be nice to expand my horizons to include the right woman. I am low maintenance and don't get upset by much. Like to laugh and miss having someone in my life to share insider jokes , and travel , and to watch a movie. Am more spiritual than religious and am interested in Buddhism , Taoism and Jesus's teachings before the church got involved . Can be comfortable on a silent retreat or downtown Asheville on a Friday night. Art, especially painting, is very important to me and helps me to stay in balance. I like hiking , camping , bike riding , and relaxed kayaking also.
What I’m doing with my life
Outfitting a comfortable Sprinter motorhome to do some traveling. Painting and doing calligraphy on wood. Doing a small amount of private practice counseling. Spending as much time as possible in nature on the creek (my front yard ) . Redoing a cabin and a 1960 Airstream type camper . Playing in and grooming the bamboo forest .
I’m really good at
Calligraphy and painting, landscaping, designing tiny houses and airstream type campers , apologizing when I am wrong , being spontaneous (even though my personality test doesn't say so ) , taking time out to collect my thoughts , and being attentive . "Submissive " on my personality type really means I play well with others , not that I am a pushover .
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor and tendency to think outside the box.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything written by Pema Chodron, Ram Dass, Richard Bach, Gregg Levoy ( Callings), Thoreau, The Dalai Lama, Dr. Wayne Dyer , Hermann Hesse , Mary Oliver ( The Journey ) , Jack Kornfield and Rumi.
Drama, foreign movies and romantic comedy... Love my Netflix ! Some favorite movies...Hector and the Search For Happiness , Little Miss Sunshine , Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , The Intouchables.
Have not had regular T.V. For over 15 years ...lucky me !
Plan on taking in more concerts this year.
The six things I could never do without
Travel, living on the water , laughter, my grown daughters, downtime in nature , dark chocolate covered mango .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to keep my toys , shelter , and relationships simple.
On a typical Friday night I am
Downtown walking around , out for a drink and people watching ,
maybe even some dancing if I am in the mood ...or maybe a fire in
my front yard on the creek.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Probably like dried mango too much !
