I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it's not sane..."
I am somewhat of a conundrum: I am an only child and the youngest of three siblings. I am typically quiet, reserved unless I'm in particular company, then I can be pretty outgoing (introverted). I'm cautious yet adventurous. I call it taking 'calculated risks'. I try to be chivalrous, but not overly so. I am a bit of a feminist and believe in equality but also like making sexist jokes (if I know you're ok with it and you know that I'm just kidding).
I'm fairly empathetic. I like to work hard, and also play hard too. I like to cuddle. I like taking time to talk and listen. I really like to give/receive massages, and I've gotten good reviews so far!
I'm not much for sports. I know, I know but I don't see the allure. I grew up watching boxing with my dad, and like to catch the superbowl and the march madness basketball games, routing for Syracuse of course. I like to hike and flat-water kayak but I don't like to run for fun/exercise, but will run for a frisbee or something.
I'm an artist of sorts, but mostly for myself or anonymously on the internet. I like digital photography and it'd be nice to get a decent camera some day, so I can take incredible telephoto and macro pictures. I like to fiddle with the bass, but don't like to say I 'play'...I don't play out, you know. I also kind of draw. I'm always taking pictures, usually with my cell phone, whether of a beautiful nature scene or some weird thing I found on the ground. I also like to knit and hemp, and can sew my own clothes to fix them (usually).
I am a lifelong vegetarian, but I'm not preachy about it. You can eat what you want. My extended family and most friends eat meat. To each their own...
I have a dog-daughter named Gaia. Black Lab rescue who will turn 2 years old in April! Time flies! She can look and sound tough but is a 54-pound baby.
