Don't choose me because I am kind.
If your heart settles on me, I'm for the taking.
Take me for longing or leave me behind."
~ Alison Krauss
(1) If you live in Austin and I browsed your profile, it's because I'm seriously considering moving back this coming summer (2015). If you live in metro Denver, you should know this.

"We all want to open our eyes and hearts with someone and finally see the truth. I would love to meet someone and create the universe together. I would love to open my eyes and see what is going on together with someone. How about you?"
~ Reb Anderson
Do you have books/reading material scattered about your home? Is there no limit to your curiosity? Do you long to live authentically and intentionally and make a real difference?
Like a lot of people, I'm a passel of paradoxes: passionate and peaceful, serious and humorous, mature and playful, geeky and normal. Words (reading and writing), music (listening and performing), and working/playing with children are my main passions, along with seeking a sense of home and cultivating creativity, mindfulness, and purpose.
While I'm open to new experiences and things outside my comfort zone, I also need time in places where I can hear myself think. I believe in reason, compassion, pragmatism, wonder, and integrity. I don’t believe in boredom, though: the world is too full of fascination, and the value of stillness and emptiness is too often underestimated.
While I cherish chances for solitude, I crave connection; I very much want Something More, a true partnership. What's more, I'm willing to relocate for it, especially to places with Sudbury schools, Zen centers, and kick-ass choirs.
