I am a natural blond. I prefer outdoors activities, I like to bike, hike, swim in the ocean. I am really into yoga, go at least 3x week, it has been great for me, relaxes me, creates muscle definition, tone. As it challenges me to push myself, and learn to do things I couldn't do before, I grow in confidence.
I'm political, and lean lefty, liberal and I was raised by anti-war activists, and my mom went to Woodstock.
I grew up reading voraciously, wasn't allowed to watch TV. So I missed out on a lot of the cultural touchstones of my generation. I'm supposed to be a Boomer, but my Mom was more of that generation than I was. I fell in with rockers and punk rockers in my 20's. Met my husband (he was in a Rock band) when I was 24, married him when I was 30, left him when I hit 50, the year our youngest left for college, I had grown and changed, he hadn't. I went back to school twice in that time. started a serious career, got involved in community activism, started practicing meditation...
I've raised two kids, I was a good mom, read to my kids, took them to museums, parks, out biking on the Charles. They turned out great. They're in their 20's now.
My Buddhist practice is an important part of my life. I'd really like to meet someone with with a similar out look on life, who I could really talk with. If not a Buddhist, at least some one who is into deepening themselves, who's introspective. But its not just talk I'm interested in - you need to be active and healthy, and grounded.
I have always done what I really loved outside of work. Lots of community organizing, working on facilitating affordable housing, promoting and preserving urban green space. Now am more engaged with my buddhist sanghas/communities. I lead meditations. I helped organize an environmental conference for Buddhists recently.
Food? I like almost all food, except, mammals and raw fish. I'm working on the courage to eat Sushi, I still feel squeamish about it though! I mostly like fresh veggies. I like to eat healthy.
Sleep (I need my sleep!)
Meaningfull engagement in life
My smart phone
yoga/moving my body
The other thing, I probably need to admit is that I don't think I really want to be in a monogamous relationship right now. Maybe, I'm "just dating" for now...Maybe I will settle down to just one relationship eventually. But maybe I'm polyamorous.
I am seeing two men. I like them both, its been two years, its not casual. But I'm still open to meeting new people.
Still trying to figure it all out. I need to get that "out there", be up front about it, yet this is still pretty private, you know?
Oh, and if you said that your right to own a gun was more important than your right to vote, don't contact me. Or of you think of yourself or identify as "God Fearing", we just will not be compatible.
But otherwise, please, do message me. I do prefer to know that you have that much initiative, that you are interested in me.
