~ Pablo Neruda
I've been blessed with incredible life experiences that have shown me the value of both play and depth in my life. I have dear friends who mean the world to me. I have work I love that matters to me. I have a spiritual life that is the foundation when the road gets rough and tumble-ly. I have a joie de vivre that is wonderfully infectious. I have a solid sense of self and I am seduced by the mystery of it all. I have so very much and yet, I long too for that one missing ingredient of beloved partnership ... could it be with you?
Here are a few things I think I know:
Attitude is everything.
Beauty is everywhere.
Nothing is black and white.
Nature can teach us so much.
We will lose everyone we love.
We simply must love anyway.
Music is the universal language.
Joy and pleasure are our birthright.
Life is so very fragile and temporary.
Conflict is natural and so is harmony.
The human heart is amazingly resilient.
We humans take ourselves way too seriously.
Intention really does make a world of difference.
Love is the most powerful force in the Universe.
My Relationship Desires:
I'm looking for an amazing, extraordinary man.
I want us to be utterly devoted to one another.
I want to share a life that invigorates, challenges and comforts us.
I want to honor one another's solitude and balance that with deep contact.
I love expressing love with physical affection, attention and words of appreciation and delight in my partner.
I want to share the psychological, emotional, sexual, intellectual and spiritual dimensions of ourselves.
I’ve been around long enough to balance romance with realism and can differentiate fireworks from what it takes keeping the home fires burning.
I don't need to be completed or rescued, nor do you; but we recognize that sharing the journey of love and life, in all its dimensions, makes both of us more whole.
I welcome, learn from and respect our different perspectives and yet realize that similar world views and lifestyles are important components in creating a life together.
I am ready to replace the “I” with “We.”
Some things that matter to me:
Laughter, laughter & more laughter
Conversation that absorbs & engages
Sharing cultural experiences of music, dance, theater
Showing up, with all of who we are and knowing it is more than enough
Faith, hope and trust that anything is possible, leaving little room for a feeling of being put upon or victimized by life
Assorted tidbits about me:
I'm learning to love what is.
I live life intensely and deliberately.
I'm allergic to dogma and absolutes.
I know how to listen and pay attention.
I'm curious, optimistic, smart and sensual.
There's both a gypsy and a homebody in my soul.
I am capable and competent, yet I know a little something about humility, too.
I know how to be with the sacred and I'm irreverent when the moment calls for it.
My inner authority and intuition are well honed and are my finest navigational tools.
I love being in circle with kindred spirits, whether we are singing, sharing deeply, laughing or being silent.
