My self-summary
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'm a science teacher(biology, chemistry, physiology, etc.).
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, and I am fascinated by the new/recent brain to create (carpentry)...explore nature/wild places/new by a stream......there is so much more that floats my boat!!
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.....not being owned by hope and desires...but also staying human...raising and enjoying my daughter, 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!! ;-) Mindful meditation practice and Qi Gong is an important part of my is staying fit, and trying to maintain a balance...just breathe, right? :-)
I teach high school biology, anatomy/phys., chemistry........I am so lucky to be able to teach my passions and relate to young's fun....and kicks my butt at the same time..;-)

Ultimately, I would like to meet a best friend and a passionate monogamous lover.....that means the chemistry has to be deep and the willingness to be open minded, and follow our attraction........ I appreciate a woman who strives to be nonjudgmental and values introspection and change...... (a work in progress I value as well) hope is to co-create a relationship flush with nurturing, integrity, and committed work. day at a time...and take it from there....
