Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a passionate, outdoorsy father of one teen girl, teacher of
biology and nature, runner, compassionate person looking for a
companion who shares similar values and interests and is willing to
explore others. I am very open and honest, and am able to be in the
moment completely. (I'm human too.....).....
I am attracted to eastern philosophies/practices and am greatly
inspired by nature, poetry, music, and the human spirit....yes,
science and spirituality mesh quite well...the new brain science
supports that!..... Intellectual conversation turns me on. I grew
up poor in Marin County in the 60's -'70's.....that helped shape
who I am today.....it was a magical time in Marin!
I practice Qi gong.. and mindfulness meditation to help maintain
staying fit, and hopefully creating a balance........as an active,
high energy person..........just breathe, right? :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning to be a more "whole" person and living life day to
day.....raising and enjoying being my daughter,( at 17, this is not
as easy to come by as it was.....)
Being respectful to life and our planet. Enjoying the wonder of
wild places, both alone for the solitude, and with friends, is high
on my list...having fun when I can! and taking care of life, which
isn't always fun.....generally what we make it!! ;-)
Having just turned 57 ( yes, that is my real age), having good
genes and a youthful heart ( a must for a high school teacher) I
appreciate balance, peace, understanding, and just being, as I get
older...it feels good to keep fit at this age..:-)
I appreciate a woman who strives to be nonjudgmental and values
introspection and change...... (a work in progress I value as
well).........my hope is to co-create a relationship flush with
nurturing, integrity, passion and understanding........one day at a
time...and take it from there....the rest is the icing on the cake
I’m really good at
