My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artist and have been painting and drawing since I was five; I sell my art and usually have a couple shows a year. I also pet sit, mostly on Orcas Island.
I LOVE working on old houses, and the smell of wood when working with it.
I'm a happy, sweet, witty, creative, sometimes irreverent, engineering-thinking, artistic, tomboy girly-girl, mostly monogamous, Top/switch. If we meet, you'll understand ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving life, hanging out, swimming, a movie at home, drawing. I'm currently dreaming about living in a "tiny house" (RV); of course, that might be easier said than done! Sometimes I'm working on my house, doing basic rewiring and plumbing and stuff to get it ready to sell. Not romantic enough? Well, I'm also a pretty good cook and love to show off in lingerie. Cooking IN lingerie - um, not sure that's the best idea!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being easy-going and appreciating every day. Dancing. Singing. Saying thinks. Noticing details. Seeing the big picture. Avoiding drama. Switching. Taking naps. Making people smile. Smiling back. Art. Photoshop. Sex (hmmm)..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tell me that my face lights up and my eyes sparkle when my smile comes out :-) And my hats. Hats hats hats. Yes, I like hats.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Fiction more than non-fiction, mostly real paper books with that tactile quality; Basketball Diaries, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Good Earth, The Hobbit, Green Eggs and Ham, anything by Anita Shreve, Dana Stabenow, Steven White; classic movies and film noir like The 39 Steps and Citizen Kane; the old BBC Avengers and newest Sherlock; bluegrass folk ska rock old school; Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Led Zeppelin and No Doubt; anything not too spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) good coffee with cream
2) smiles - the most basic human communication
3) love and intimacy and friends and a kind shoulder to lean on
4) creating things
5) meditation/prayer/yoga or some kind of relaxation practice
6) men who actually fill out their profiles and include more than one photo; one thing I could do WITHOUT are men that say "Ask me anything..." - that means us women have to do all the work to learn about you. Ain't happenin', nada, nope, no way...

This could change, depending on what I'm doing. Like when I'm painting in my studio I HAVE to have music. But other times I really like just "listening" to silence...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Would that sketch I did 10 years ago make a good painting?
- Designs for "tiny living" homes
- Love. What is it? Where is it? Can I find it? Can it find me?
- Wondering if I have too many photos here
- Co-housing/Intentional Communities/Poly-Fi Families
- What would it feel like to reel in a 20lb Coho? Num!
- Waiting for my house to go up in value so I can move to paradise
- Trying to figure out the exact location of paradise ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes a social get-together, like a party or dancing; sometimes vegging, sometimes painting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know a man with a wife and two little girls. He was riding his bike to work and a distracted driver hit and threw him 30 feet. In a coma for weeks, he came out of it, and now has only a slight limp.

Several people responded that I should tell BEFORE meeting that I've had MS for 21 years. Sheesh, I don't define myself by it. I have sooooo much in my life: a home, enough to get by, incredible friends, a fun social life, and a bright future. The only missing piece is someone to share that with. Hey, admit it: even though you keep busy, you're a little lonely, too. Why else would we be doing this?

None of us really knows what will happen to us in the future. If, by including that I have MS, you get scared away, that's okay. I might get fewer results, but least I won't be wasting anyone's time.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Bottom line (paragraph?): you're a grown-up who also likes to have FUN! To travel, play in the water, sail, maybe do yoga and meditation, spend the day at a naturist camp...ooh! Go camping, lay by the fire, go out to dinner and a play, putter around the house, and talk. (Yep, I know that last one can be a four-letter word. I promise to never start a sentence with "We need to talk...")
(No FWBs, please! Unless you're really rich and have a villa in the south of France - lol!)

I read a profile here where a man described his "fantasy woman," so, here's my "fantasy" partner (not in order or deal breakers):
- You can playfully and seductively banter. You're educated but not stuffy, and you're witty.
- You want to meditate and do yoga and you practice being in the moment.
- You like doing projects: paintings, woodwork, sculpting.
- You like cooking dinner together, growing veggies, self-sufficiency, and maybe building a poly or line family or co-housing (or some kind of community).
- Relaxing in front of the tv isn't at the top of his list but it's okay.
- Switzerland? Sure! (I have friends and a standing invitation). I really want to snowboard in the Alps, just once. Okay, maybe twice.
- You want to hold me tight after my tough day...and to languish in my bosom after your tough day.
