the door calling you, as fish out of
water hear the waves or a hunting
falcon hears the drum’s "come back".
This turning toward what you deeply love
And that’s me these days, taking the time for life, rediscovering what it is I love about it, and hoping to find someone to help share in the discovery.
Not sure how this English major ended up working in computer data centers, but in between I've spent a decade abroad, published a few things, helped raise two great kids (now adults) and kept focused on keeping healthy and being able to sail through the decades to come.
I'm looking to share meaningful conversations with someone who is open minded, thoughtful, witty, and willing to open my eyes to more...of everything.
My ideal getaway together would be a few days backpacking in the Sierra, catching some hot springs on the way back, then dinner at a fancy Sonoma restaurant to celebrate our adventure.
I eat well and work out to stay healthy. I feel that really all we have in life is our bodies. I want mine to last so I can be strong and active, able to share life fully with those I love for many more years to come. I've also restarted up my meditation practice, and would love to find someone with whom I can sit. While I am very interested in Buddhism and meditation, my approach is strictly secular. I also try to make it to yoga class three times a week.
I love visiting National Parks, beaches, Canada, Alaska, the Sierra Nevada. If I had to pin down my "happy place.", it would be beside a Sierra alpine lake, early spring morning, sipping hot camp coffee.
I've been separated for over two years now and am waiting for a divorce to finalize, sometime in September, 2014.
