My self-summary
You should click this off if you don't believe in global climate change or if you think creationism should be taught side by side with evolution. I won't take too kindly to that..........just sayin' ;)
This will filter out about 68% right off the bat, but you would find that out anyway...LOL!

Just so you know, I'm not on the west coast yet, but will be. Planning a move this year back to my native California. It seems that i have much more in common with the California dreamers..If you understand that Brian Wilson is pretty sophisticated and layered and that Don't Worry Baby is deceptively simple and is full of sadness and melting beauty...then you might get me. That is bringing me back to my birthplace- if there is a place for me. I am beginning to think there is.....

That said, my humor here is described as clean, spontaneous, dark..and that might be why the east/west coasters like me.....That made me laugh since I'm a bit more light than dark. A little more kind... Anyway, I am an aquatic creature- swimming, running on trails, soft touch for animals, a loving nature, enjoy growing plants- just love the whole creative process. That is where I am in my element- improving things about me. Want something better for the planet. Yes I rescue animals- all of the time. Red squirrels, racoons, warblers, chipmunks, bugs, cats and dogs. i will probably run an animal rehab center when I'm older. Got a problem with that? ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Found Slaughterhouse Five in a shack on the river....need to read it for some reason. Right now reading Quiet and the Drunkard's Walk-How Randomness Rules Our Lives.

I get to spend time with all these science, neighborhood activists, biologists, planners, horticultural, big brain, watershed types around town. I love it. I am nature explorer which has moments of pure insanity/hilarity/danger/tripping/scissors play//hawks/coyotes/fox sightings.....Just returned from kayaking trip ...Planning a few others-kayaking off the California coast. Also just explored back country Yellowstone. I would love to cycle through the desert and camp with a cool guy who knows how to make a nice fire or has no problem with cheap hotels and hot showers. i like a good story for later......
I’m really good at
Problem solving-intuitively, initiating conversations with strangers, swimming, being welcoming, growing plants, greenhouses, being curious, finding the coolest stuff at Savers and handing it over to others because I'm probably an idiot and you might need it more, talking about ideas and making them happen, biking, inline skating. Avid swimmer of lakes-yes I go all the way across! (You could kayak next to me or swim too). I am also a good partner -loyal, loving, adventurous. Don't believe in competition with friends or lovers. I don't avert my eyes from the homeless- and neither should you......I'm no Pollyanna, I'm a bit of an intrinsically feminine force who drives a truck (for the greenhouse and backroads-otherwise my bikes).
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not exactly sure.... Perhaps that I am taller, fit, mannerly ( despite what this site says)! I am also friendly to strangers, but have my quiet moments. Passionate about things environmental. You become what you do....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think what would be more compelling would be to share how these books, movies, music, etc. have shaped me or inspired me to live more fully or to be a better person..

Desert Solitaire.-Edward Abbey. I read him when i was young. It was his best writing about the southwest. I came to appreciate the harsh beauty and was heavily influenced by his straight talk and fierce stance on environmental issues. Barbara Kingsolver, Ann Patchett-State of Wonder. Chet Baker because, just because he's so blue and then there's Miles. Cheryl Strayed-Wild. (I was that kid) Just finished this. Loved it. John Irving because Owen Meany was so fully realized as a character and I grew to love him and wept for hours when he died, like I lost a good friend. Louise Erdrich/Last Report because she wrote this gender-bending shock of a book that was funny, profoundly sad, poetic and mesmerizing. You could find yourself in those pages. Mary Oliver because she connects the reader so deeply with the natural world, you want to protect all things. She is able to appeal to a wide range of people- and small children get it too. N.Y. Times- for the long form essays and articles.They do this part well. I learn about complex issues from good writers/journalists. Conservation Volunteer because the writers care about creating a sense of place, Ranger Rick (not kidding), anything Werner Herzog. He's kind of a jerk sometimes with his subjects. I loved his movie on Antarctica. Local Hero, Network, not t.v., This American Life, Breaking Bad-I love to watch Jesse. I had a younger brother very much like him.... Don't you love Saul??? He makes me laugh...Zombies-the band -fucking a! Viggo Mortenson, Julian Schnabel's films, enjoy all kinds of music-not commercial country, Love Steely Dan. You have to love Aja with a passion or we can't hang- the musicians are so California, Tom Petty- would love to see him. He used to skateboard...maybe still does, I keep crawling back to you, Dylan, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, Emmylou Harris (Wrecking Ball with Neil Young backing her up is heartbreaking from beginning to end), Gillian Welch- I like the melancholic types. Ween-makes me laugh out loud with the boys, just stupid..... Patti Smith, Black Keys because they're excellent musicians, Rufus Wainwright, Cat Power, Johnny Cash (now and when I was a kid-the hardscrabble life and his amazing show my dad forbade me to watch, but i would him, adore him), Greg Allman lately, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppellin-they were such a large part of my growing up experience.androgynous, sexy lead singer. i love rock and rollers. I've been running to this, Bruce Springsteen early stuff, Marvin Gaye-you have to love him, Al Green on and on.. Pretty much a free-ranger when it comes to music. 20 Feet From Stardom was a start of a movie.....
The six things I could never do without
swimming, dental tape, music of crickets, s.p.f. 100, the perfect pillow, swim fins, coops, smoked salmon, seed packets, my artist friends, my Bianchi -the old mint green one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
soulful connections, warming trends, what the republican haters are trying to do, water quality and crises, having a trusty boyfriend who loves adventure and knows how to cook, is physically fit and loves the outdoors, ideas and spirited conversations. Hey, if you listen to Rush Limbaugh, please keep moving. KQ morning show, Vikings freaks, snowmobile guys, hunters, non-readers, ASSCAR, let's not waste time......Not my deal. Really.
On a typical Friday night I am
Coming down off the week. Regenerating. Listening to music. Swimming, steam room with head in the clouds eyes closed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm fairly private. I don't kiss and tell- even when surrounded by an intimidating pack of women around a campfire.....I love men-especially if they make me laugh when i might be on the verge of crying. what can i say, i love them.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 40–52
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
if you like to read and share ideas. I love people who are creative and can make those ideas reality. Also. if you are really messy and disorganized, that's fine for you.....I like creative disarray myself but don't want your chaos to flow into my life. If you have a loving nature and can make me laugh-big points for that....'cause truth be told-women dig guys who are funny and disarming.
